PowerShot Pro90 IS

 

The big lens is the key feature of this new PowerShot. It's the equivalent of 37-370mm on a 35mm camera, and has a healthy f/2.8-3.5 maximum aperture (though the minimum f/8 is disappointing). The power-zoom control - a little slow to respond - is a...

Canon PowerShot Pro90 IS Review

 

Exactly two years ago I was handed the first ever camera reviewed on this site, it was Canon's Pro 70.. And, at the time it was most definitely the class leader, I gave it a positive review, there were definitely a few drawbacks but image quality was...

Good image quality, resolution, sharpness, on-par with 3 megapixel digital cameras Compact 10x times optical stabilised zoom lens offers superb "reach" Stabiliser offers one or two stops over what you could handhold Good colours, stronger and more...

Slow startup time Almost non-existent continuous mode thanks to the "always on" noise reduction Visible chromatic aberrations Vignetting on certain types of shot No histogram in record review or playback mode No macro mode, requires optional lens to...

Canon PowerShot Pro90 IS

 

For the last several years, the specs on high-end "prosumer" digital cameras were usually the same. Take the highest Megapixel CCD out there (1.3, 2.1, then 3.3 Mpixel), add a 3X optical zoom lens, and toss it in a familiar body. Lately, though, things...

Nice 10X zoom with optical image stabilization ; Useful swiveling LCD ; Full manual controls, and plenty of presets if you don't wish to use them ; Fast processing speeds ; Excellent playback mode ; Supports IBM Microdrive

Chromatic aberrations can be a problem ; Quirky zoom controls ; Zoom not functional in movie mode ; Expensive at $1400

The Canon PowerShot Pro90 IS is the latest in a string of higher-end, "big zoom" cameras. It's got an excellent feature set, good photo quality, a neat swiveling LCD, and fast processing speeds. There are a few annoying design quirks, and chromatic...
