Exposure Adjusting the light intensity
You can create various images by adjusting the exposure and the ISO sensitivity. Exposure is the amount of light that the camera will receive when you release the shutter.
Shutter speed = Length of time the camera receives light Aperture = Size of the opening allowing light to pass through ISO sensitivity (Recommended Exposure Index) = Recording sensitivity
Overexposure = too much light Whitish image Correct exposure
The exposure is automatically set to the proper value in the auto adjustment mode. However, you can adjust it manually using the functions below. Adjusting EV: Allows you to adjust the exposure determined by the camera (pages 19, 41). Metering Mode: Allows you to change the part of the subject to be measured to determine the exposure (page 42).
Underexposure = too little light Darker image
Adjusting ISO Sensitivity (Recommended Exposure Index)
ISO sensitivity is a speed rating for recording media that incorporates an image sensor that receives light. Even when the exposure is the same, images differ depending on the ISO sensitivity. To adjust the ISO sensitivity, see page 41.
High ISO sensitivity Records a bright image even when shooting in a dark location. However, the image tends to become noisy. Low ISO sensitivity Records a smoother image. However, when the exposure is insufficient, the image may become darker.
On the effects of lighting
The apparent color of the subject is affected by the lighting conditions.
Example: The color of an image affected by light sources
Weather/lighting Characteristics of light
Daylight White (standard)
The color tones are adjusted automatically in the auto adjustment mode. However, you can adjust color tones manually with [White Bal] (page 45).
On image quality and image size
A digital image is made up of a collection of small dots called pixels. If it contains a large number of pixels, the picture becomes large, it takes up more memory, and the image is displayed in fine detail. Image size is shown by the number of pixels. Although you cannot see the differences on the screen of the camera, the fine detail and data processing time differ when the image is printed or displayed on a computer screen.
Description of the pixels and the image size 1 Image size: 8M (DSC-W90 only) 3264 pixels 2448 pixels = 7,990,272 pixels 2 Image size: 7M (DSC-W80/W85 only) 3072 pixels 2304 pixels = 7,077,888 pixels Pixels 3 Image size: VGA 640 pixels 480 pixels = 307,200 pixels
Selecting the image size for use (page 11)
Many pixels (Fine image quality and large file size) Few pixels (Rough image quality but small file size) Example: Printing in up to A3 size
Example: An attached image to be sent by email

When the mode dial is set to , the Exposure Bracket mode is not available. The flash is set to (Flash forced off).
On the Burst
When recording with the self timer, a series of a maximum of five images is recorded. The recording interval is approximately 0.46 seconds (DSC-W90) or 0.36 seconds (DSC-W80/W85). The recording interval becomes longer, depending on the setting for the image size. When the battery level is low, or when the internal memory or Memory Stick Duo is full, the Burst stops. You may not be able to shoot images in the Burst mode depending on the Scene Selection mode (page 28).
On the Exposure Bracket
The focus and white balance are adjusted for the first image, and these settings are also used for the other images. When the exposure is manually adjusted (page 41), the exposure is shifted based on the adjusted brightness. The recording interval is approximately 0.5 seconds (DSC-W90) or 0.4 seconds (DSC-W80/W85). If the subject is too bright or too dark, you may be unable to shoot properly with the selected bracket step value. You may not be able to shoot images in the Exposure Bracket mode depending on the Scene Selection mode (page 28).
Color Mode: Changing the vividness of the image or adding special effects
You can change the brightness of the image, accompanied by effects.
Sets the image to bright and deep color.

High ISO sensitivity
Selects a luminous sensitivity with units of ISO. The larger the number, the higher the sensitivity.
Select a large number when shooting in dark locations or shooting a subject moving at high speed, or select a small number to obtain high image quality. Using functions for shooting
For details on the ISO sensitivity, see page 8. Note that the image tends to become noisier as the ISO sensitivity number increases. [ISO] is set to [Auto] in the Scene Selection mode. When shooting under brighter conditions, the camera automatically increases its tone reproduction and helps prevent images to become whitish (excluding when [ISO] is set to [ISO 100]).
EV: Adjusting the light intensity
Manually adjusts the exposure.
Toward + Toward : Darkens an image. The exposure is determined automatically by the camera. Toward +: Brightens an image.
2.0EV 0EV +2.0EV
For details on the Exposure, see page 8. The compensation value can be set in 1/3EV increments. If a subject is being shot in extremely bright or dark conditions, or the flash is used, the exposure adjustment may not be effective.
Metering Mode: Selecting the metering mode
Selects the metering mode that sets which part of the subject to measure to determine the exposure.
Divides into multiple regions and measures each region. The camera determines a well-balanced exposure (Multi-pattern metering). Measures the center of the image, and determines the exposure based on the brightness of the subject there (Centerweighted metering). Measures only a part of the subject (Spot metering).
This function is useful when the subject is backlit or when there is strong contrast between the subject and the background.
(Spot) (Only for still image)
Spot metering cross hairs Positions on the subject
For details on the Exposure, see page 8. When using spot metering or center-weighted metering, setting [Focus] to [Center AF] is recommended to focus on the metering position (page 42).
Focus: Changing the focus method
You can change the focus method. Use the menu when it is difficult to get the proper focus in auto focus mode.
