To use a Memory Stick Duo with a Memory Stick compliant device, be sure to insert the Memory Stick Duo into a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor. If you insert a Memory Stick Duo into a Memory Stick compliant device without a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor, you might not be able to remove it from the device. When inserting a Memory Stick Duo into a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor, make sure the Memory Stick Duo is inserted facing in the correct direction, then insert it all the way in. Incorrect insertion may result in a malfunction. When using a Memory Stick Duo inserted into a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor with a Memory Stick compliant device, make sure that the Memory Stick Duo Adaptor is inserted facing the correct direction. Note that improper use may damage the equipment. Do not insert a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor into a Memory Stick compliant device without a Memory Stick Duo attached. Doing so may result in malfunction of the unit.
Notes on using Memory Stick PRO Duo (not supplied)
Memory Stick PRO Duo with a capacity up to 8 GB have been confirmed to operate properly with this camera.
Notes on using Memory Stick Micro (not supplied)
To use a Memory Stick Micro with this camera, be sure to insert the Memory Stick Micro into an M2 Adaptor as large as of Duo size.

Do not leave the Memory Stick Micro within the reach of small children. They might accidentally swallow it.
On the battery pack
On charging the battery pack
We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10C to 30C (50F to 86F). You may not be able to efficiently charge the battery pack outside of this temperature range. The battery life varies according to how it is stored and the operating conditions and environment in which each battery pack is used.
Effective use of the battery pack
Battery performance decreases in low temperature surroundings. So, the time that the battery pack can be used is shorter in cold places. We recommend the following to ensure longer battery pack use: Put the battery pack in a pocket close to your body to warm it up, and insert it in your camera immediately before you start shooting. The battery pack will run out quickly if you use the flash or zoom frequently. We recommend having spare battery packs handy for two or three times the expected shooting time, and making trial shots before taking the actual shots. Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not water-resistant. Do not leave the battery pack in extremely hot places, such as in a car or under direct sunlight.
How to store the battery pack
If the battery pack is not to be used for a long time, fully charge it and then fully use it up once a year on your camera before storing the battery pack in a dry, cool place. Repeat this charging and using up once a year to maintain the battery packs function. To use the battery pack up, leave your camera in slide show (page 48) playback mode until the power goes off. To prevent staining the terminal, shortcircuiting, etc., be sure to use a supplied battery case when carrying and storing.
On battery life
The battery life is limited. Battery capacity decreases little by little as you use it more and more, and as time passes. If the battery operating time seems shortened considerably, a probable cause is that the battery pack has reached the end of its life. Buy a new battery pack.
On the battery charger
Do not charge any other battery pack other than the NP-BG type battery packs in the battery charger supplied with your camera. Batteries other than the specified kind may leak, overheat, or explode if you attempt to charge them, posing a risk of injury from electrocution and burns. Remove the charged battery pack from the battery charger. If you leave the charged battery pack in the charger, battery life may be shortened. When the CHARGE lamp flashes, this may indicate a battery error or that a battery pack other than the specified type have been inserted. Check that the battery pack is the specified type. If the battery pack is the specified type, remove the battery pack, replace it with new one or another one and check if the battery charger operates correctly. If the battery charger operates correctly, a battery error may have occurred. If the battery charger is dirty, charging may not be performed successfully. Clean the battery charger with dry cloth, etc.

The DSC-W90 combines the power of 8.1 MP resolution and the precision of Carl Zeiss 3X Optical zoom lens design with new hi-tech features like Face Detection to bring out the best in every face, D-Range Optimization for more detail in highlights and shadows, and in-camera retouching and red-eye reduction to improve shots youve already taken. The Sony Double Anti-Blur Solution lets you shoot sharp, clear photos in low light without flash to preserve the mood. And HD Output1 makes photos look spectacular on HDTV screens.
8.1 MP Super HAD CCD With more megapixels than most digital cameras, the DSC-W90 captures greater image definition so you can make big prints and tight crops without losing detail. The advanced Sony Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise. Carl Zeiss3X Optical Zoom Lens Design A top-quality Carl Zeiss 3X Optical zoom lens design helps the DSC-W90 bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots quickly for better composition -- a real advantage for family sports, outdoor fun and travel photos. Face Detection By automatically controlling focus, exposure, color and flash, this new Sony feature reveals faces in shadow, makes skin tones look more natural and eliminates harsh facial glare -- to help bring out every expression on every face in every shot, so youll capture the personalities and emotions that make memories come alive. The Sony Double Anti-Blur Solution With Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization and high sensitivity (ISO 3200), the DSC-W90 compensates for shaky hands, minimizes blur, brightens images and allows flash-free shooting to preserve the mood -- with Sony Clear RAW Noise Reduction to take care of the picture noise that can ruin low-light shots. HD Output1 Thanks to Sony, your photo album can go high-def -- with direct HD output1 to your HDTV screen, so you can view DSC-W90 still photos in spectacular high definition clarity and detail. Your life never looked so exciting! HD Slide Show with Music Its the high-definition viewing experience that makes photos come alive on HDTV screens, accompanied by your choice of visual effects and any of four preset musical selections stored in memory or your favorite MP3 tunes downloaded from PC to your camera for use as background music. 9-Point Auto Focus Because an off-center subject can make your shot more interesting, the DSC-W90 can measure auto-focus precision at 9 points on your screen -- giving you greater creative freedom to compose your image. D-Range Optimization Powered by the exclusive Sony Bionz highspeed processing engine, D-Range Optimization preserves image data in bright highlights and reveals more detail in shadows or backlit areas -- for great results even in difficult lighting conditions. In-Camera Retouching The DSC-W90 lets you add creative effects to photos after you shoot -- including soft edge filter to soften backgrounds, cross filter to place starry dazzles at highlight points, partial color filter to mute surrounding colors, even fish-eye filter to create interesting fish-eye lens effects. In-Camera Red-Eye Reduction Irritating glowing eyes can ruin even the most creative photos -- so the DSC-W90 provides in-camera correction at the touch of a button to reduce lingering red-eye effect that other systems might miss. Large 2.LCD Screen The DSC-W90 provides a large, bright LCD screen for composing shots, checking results, sharing your photos on location -and an optical viewfinder allows shooting in traditional rangefinder camera style. Simple Setup Controls A quick press of the Home button opens your user-friendly GUI -- and you can select functions by simply moving a cursor vertically or horizontally to the appropriate icon. Function names and the on-screen Function Guide display make it easier to learn camera setup operations. 31 MB Internal Memory The DSC-W90 allows you to capture a large number of images without a flash memory card, so its great for traveling or for quick candid snapshots. Memory Stick Duo Media Convenience A built-in slot accepts optional Memory Stick Duo media or Memory Stick PRO Duo media -- the compact, high-capacity storage media that make it easily to upload photos to your computer or make lab-quality prints at home on your Sony Picture Station digital printer (sold separately). 15X Smart ZoomFeature4 The Sony Smart Zoom feature intelligently crops into the central portion of interest in your photo, avoiding the image degradation of other digital zooms. MPEG Movie VX Fine Mode Captures VGA (640 x 480) audio/video clips at high frame rate (up to 30 frames per second5 ), with length limited only by the capacity of your media. StaminaBattery Power The DSC-W90 provides up to 350 shots3 with a fully charged NP-BG1 Lithium Ion battery - enough shooting capacity to cover a long weekend or a whole vacation. Picture Motion Browser Software Supplied software makes it easier to upload, organize and search photos on your PC -- and provides a convenient map view function to sort photos by location and display their origin on a world map by using an optional GPS unit.
