Canon Digital IXUS 990 IS
15 January 2010
Summary: The Canon Digital IXUS 990 IS offers elegance, straightforward operation and quality -- all the usual IXUS hallmarks. But is it the best IXUS to go for? Probably not -- it costs more than the Digital IXUS 110 IS without having much to show for it
Pros: Top-quality design and finish; effective and understated automation; straightforward operation.
Cons: No zooming in high-definition movie mode; lacks a wideangle zoom; expensive even compared to its stablemates.

Summary: The Canon IXUS 990 IS is a great compact camera that combines impressive image quality with an elegant design. However, when it comes to bang for your buck, there are several better deals on the market.
Pros: Good image quality, 720p video mode, excellent build quality and design
Cons: Limited manual modes and options, too expensive, noise levels could be lower
Excerpt: The Canon Ixus 990 IS is the company's flagship compact digital camera. It has a 12.1-megapixel sensor, a 5x optical zoom lens -- the highest of any Ixus camera to date -- HD 720p video recording, an enlarged thee-inch LCD display with 461,000 pixels and an ultra-stylish design.
Pros: Good image quality; 720p video mode; excellent build quality and design.
Cons: Limited manual modes and options; too expensive; noise levels could be lower.
Summary: Another in a superb range of small digital cameras from Canon . This is the forth one I have looked at in the last three years. This one has three subtle tones from silver to grey and it looks are pleasing even to a style dunce like me.
Excerpt: The Ixus 990 IS from Canon is a high-end compact for those users who want a large megapixel count, decent zoom and the flexibility of a smaller camera. Unfortunately, it comes with a price tag to match, so you'll have to be serious about wanting a compact camera, and at £379 it's not a big step up...
