Canon PowerShot S90

The PowerShot S90 is a digital camera that combines the features of the PowerShot Digital ELPH line and the functionality from the PowerShot G-series. It features a High Sensitivity System sensor in addition to a 28 mm wide-angle f/2.0 lens to produce optimal images in low-light situations while the customizable control ring allows users to adjust shooting settings. The S90 is a 10.0-Megapixel High Sensitivity System with a 3.8x Optical Zoom and Optical Image Stabilization. The camera sports a 3.0-inch PureColor System LCD and full range of shooting and recording modes, including RAW + JPEG, which is useful when it comes to editing photos. Scheduled to be available in October, the PowerShot S90 Digital Camera retails for an estimated price of $429.99.

Features

The PowerShot S90 is a digital camera that features Optical Image Stabilization and DIGIC 4 Image Processor, the proprietary technology from Canon that supports signal processing speeds and image quality. The camera also features Smart AUTO technology that can track moving faces and 22 different shooting situations by identifying the surroundings and adjust settings to ensure proper lighting and focus, providing performance in any situation, from group snapshots, to landscapes, to portraits and more. Other features include the ability to shoot 720p High-Definition (HD) video, the PureColor System LCD and a touch screen user interface for navigation through images and menus. The 10.0-Megapixel High Sensitivity System in the S90 provides operation in low-light situations and reduce noise at high ISO speeds, while the High Sensitivity System which is combined with the DIGIC 4 image processor, results in a faster shutter speed to help reduce subject blur and camera shake in recorded images. The High Sensitivity System also allows users to utilize the camera in situations where the flash cannot be used, such as in a wedding or concert hall.

  • Replacement for Powershot SD990 IS?

    I need a point-and-shoot that will produce pix suitable for print use (300 dpi). I loved but lost my Canon Powershot 990IS and learned that Canon has discontinued it (and wondering why). Looking to replace this for under $400 and don't know whether to buy an S90, a used 990, one or something newer. What is comparable to the SD990, including movie capability? I'm seriously considering a Sony Cybershot DSCTX7 but it's very pricey. Thanks in advance for any advice.
