  • Conclusion: Buy an S90. The S90 is one of those cameras that will get more and more popular throughout its typically short product cycle life, and then the prices will skyrocket as it goes out of stock just at the peak of demand. Order yours today to avoid the rush.

  • Conclusion: This camera is white hot – forget about getting a good deal for months. Checking legit online retailers, we only found list price and higher! Now is $429 a deal for a point-and-shoot?

What Digital Camera
9 May 2010
  • Summary: Ultimately, the appeal of this camera is that it is the smallest on the market to feature Raw capture , and a less pricey alternative to the G11 – which has an identical sensor. The expanded ISO range , fast lens and high-resolution LCD screen only add to its appeal, and though it’s not perfect –...
  • Pros: Compact proportions, fast lens, lens control ring, Raw mode, good quality LCD screen, overall image quality, fast start-up
  • Cons: Operation hampered by a few design issues, flash sometimes raised when not needed, some WB inaccuracies, mode dial stiff and slightly inaccessible

DP Review
4 May 2010
  • Summary: The S90 offers an appealing combination of compact styling, photographic functionality and powerful control. Crucially it also offers some of the best image quality we've seen in such a small camera for a long time, sensor limitations aside.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, particularly at lower ISO settings, Well optimized JPEGs, Extensive photographic feature set, New Function Ring transforms use of manual controls on a small camera, Usable, fast raw mode with excellent DPP software supplied, Highly customizable, Fast, sharp zoom with usef...
  • Cons: Highlight clipping and channel clipping in bright, contrasty conditions, Rear dial rotates too freely and cannot be disabled, so accidental settings changes too common, No noise reduction options, JPEG NR too strong at higher ISO settings, Video limited to VGA resolution, Lack of grip and smooth,...

16 February 2010
  • Summary: The Canon S90 is a photographer’s compact camera. If you owned any of the recent Canon G-series cameras, you will appreciate the S90 as more of a compact version of that series. The S90 delivers control and flexibility that has been taken away from the user in so many other compact camera models...

Some Canon S90 Sample Shots

Enticing the Light
16 December 2009
  • Excerpt: As some of you may have noticed, I bought a Canon S90 a couple of months ago and have been putting it through its paces during this time. While the reviews showed photos taken mostly for the purposes of testing the camera, the fact is I bought the S90 to take real photographs with.

Review – Canon S90, Part 3: Image Quality

Enticing the Light
9 December 2009
  • Summary: No camera is perfect, and the S90 is as far from it as the best of them, yet it is still eminently useful. I will not be returning it nor selling it off, and I foresee it giving me a few good years of use as a pocket cam.
  • Pros: Small, light and pocketable, Good JPEGs and RAW files (superb for a P&S), Impressive high ISO performance for a P&S, Fast f/2 aperture at the wide end, Superb auto WB which can be manually fine-tuned, PASM shooting modes plus very useful Custom mode, Highly customisable buttons and dials (includi...
  • Cons: Manual mode disables auto ISO (Canon, give us auto ISO in M mode!), Manual focus offers a poor distance scale and no indication of depth of field, Manual focus mode “disappears” when camera goes into sleep mode, No hyperfocal focus mode, No way to turn off sleep mode, No RAW shooting in modes oth...

Digital Photography Interface
4 December 2009
  • Conclusion: I’ll be straightforward here – I like the Canon PowerShot S90, I like it a LOT. Here’s why – it’s packed to the brim with features, yet is as small as an average compact camera. After four long years, the Canon S-series is finally back with the all new PowerShot S90.
  • Pros: Very good image quality with good color accuracy and overall sharpness, Camera excels in low-light: f2.0 starting aperture and powerful flash at wide-angle, ISO usable till 1600, good AF in dim conditions, Compact design; 28-105 mm lens starts at f2.0 and has image stabilization, Dual control dia...
  • Cons: Prominent color fringing (chromatic aberration) at wide apertures; visible lens distortion, Below average battery life, Rear dial lacks tactile clicks and is easily bumped, No HD movie recording capabilities; can’t use optical zoom while recording, Sluggish continuous shooting performance (would ...
