It also includes the W90’s face detection function with Smile Shutter, a handy mode that lets the camera automatically take pictures of subjects when they smile. The Bottom Line The W’s quick performance and decent image quality make it a solid follow-up to the W90, and a good choice for a pocket point-and-shoot camera. Face Detection Technology is a growing trend among consumer digital cameras these days, and Sony included their version on the Sony W, which can detect as many as eight faces in a single frame — pretty useful for group shots. The camera can be operated with just one hand, though it felt a lot more stable if I used both.

Of course, you should never rely on internal memory, so either camera would require you to pick w1330 a Memory Stick Duo for shooting more than a handful of photos. For those who shoot in unusual lighting, like taking long ds, or take a lot of flash shots, then you may want to consider something else.
There are some downsides, including a low resolution LCD and a complete lack of manual controls, so if those bother you, you may want to consider something else.
Lens distortion is a little higher than I’d like at the full zoom positions, and noise suppression does trade detail at the higher ISOs, but overall, with 8.
