Pros Fast, Easy to Manipulate Menus, Lots of Options for shooting environments and easy to adjust. Burst Mode is Super Fun and useful in more situations than I would have figured.
Cons Proprietary Cable for connecting to computer. I've always bought the other camera whose name starts with a "C" and I could use any standard USB/Camera cable to connect .
Summary I love this camera so far and would have rated it a 10 if it wasn't for the Sony cable you must use to connect to a device. I know, I know, sounds a little persnickety.
Pros fast, battery life is excellent, makes cool sounds(u can turn them off if u want to though), lightweight, easy to use
Cons only 3x optical zoom(megapixels and my dsc-h2) make up for it
Summary This is a great camera. I bought an Olympus the day before i got this and was dissatisfied, so i returned it. the sony is 300x better. I would recommend this camera to anyone who is an average photographer!
Pros speed, simple to use, HD output
Cons tiny buttons
Summary Great camera thus far. Burst mode is impressive for an 8MP point and shoot digital camera.

Summary This is a very good camera for the money. It is very fast and takes good pictures in a lot of different types of light.
Pros Easy to use, easy to carry
Cons Picture quality leaves much to be desired
Summary My wife wanted a smaller camera than our older 3MP Olympus which was also showing its age and the DSC-W90 was well rated so I bought it for her for her birthday in December.
We have taken between 2000 and 3000 photos with it so far and have been generally unimpressed.
In anything but bright, direct light it seems to have focus issues. Even when face detection is working or the autofocus correctly identifies the subject matter most of my pictures are at least slightly out of focus. If the subject is more than three feet away the possibility of having an in-focus image are even worse.
Granted, I am using the point and shoot mode, and am not a great photographer, but our older camera consistently took good quality pictures at any focal distance even with motion. On this camera though, indirect light or motion seem to prevent a good picture. Daytime, outdoor pictures on the other hand turn out uniformly well.
The movie mode, small size, quick focus speed (relative to our old camera), and daytime shooting are all positives, but I definitely wouldn't recommend this camera and will be purchasing something else soon and relegating this camera to a secondary.
