The feel of the W90 is great, feels good in the hands and the operation buttons are placed well. There are plenty of settings for all shooting modes. I feel for a point and shoot camera the picture quality is way above average. I think most people who by point shoots expect SLR quality photos, which is not the case. This is a great camera to take photos in all conditions and does it very well. There is noise at higher ISOs but that is to be expected with just about any camera. Cool design that is fun to use!!! I love the fast start up and plenty of shooting options. The microscope option really works, you can get to 1cm away and has clear focus. I did take it in the pool with me a few days ago and all dry inside, no leaks.
