Canon IXUS 90 IS

 

Is Canon's IXUS still the iconic pocket camera that it always was?

Canon IXUS 90 IS review

 

Is Canon's latest compact a valuable addition to the acclaimed Ixus range?

Solid build quality ; Great image stabilisation ; Excellent colour reproduction

Insensitive buttons ; Not ultra-wide ; High noise above ISO 400

A well built compact camera that's a step forwards in image quality, but one step backwards in usability

Canon PowerShot SD790 IS review

 

The Canon PowerShot SD750 is one of the most popular cameras on CNET, so how do you top it? Well, with a couple of the standard enhancements, for one. For the PowerShot SD790 IS, Canon adds image stabilization and ups the resolution to 10 megapixels...

Great photo quality; interesting design.

Mixed performance; no optical zoom in movie mode.

For most people, the excellent photo quality of the Canon PowerShot SD790 IS will more than make up for any slight performance deficiencies or minor shortcomings.

The 10-megapixel IXUS 90 IS is another design-driven compact digital camera from the IXUS range.

Canon IXUS 90IS

 

Initial impressions of the styling make me cast my mind back to the original IXUS released in September 1996. It was a bigger camera and took the recently developed yet ill-fated APS format. The quality of lens, performance and build ensured that...

Nice design; Great build quality; Interesting design; Great noise performance

Annoying resistance on the shutter release

Shiny Review: Canon IXUS 90 IS

 

Yesterday, Zara tried her hand at the pink Canon 80IS. Today, she takes a step away from the pink, with the slightly higher spec'd IXUS 90 IS. It's chiselled, it's crafted, it's here to steal your daughters.

Canon IXUS 90IS

 

Retro compact with a 10-megapixel sensor and 3in screen

Stylish retro design, sharp images, fast start-up time

Slow shot-to-shot time, burst mode sluggish, controls can be fiddly

Another solid compact camera from Canon, the IXUS 90IS packs in image stabilisation and good image quality. It is only let down by sometimes sluggish performance and some slightly annoying controls.

Slim / Ultra Compact Camera Group Test (Q4 2008)

 

The digital camera hasn't escaped the consumer electronics industry's obsession with miniaturization. The first compact consumer digicams arrived in the mid 1990's and they've been getting smaller and slimmer ever since. As far back as 1999 companies...
