Canon Digital IXUS 990 IS

CNET
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: 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.

5 May 2009
  • 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...
