Canon PowerShot S90 Review

What Digital Camera
13 December 2009
  • 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 – and at times frustrating to use – it is capable of superb image quality.
  • 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

  • Summary: As such the S90 really ought to be one of the standout products in Canon’s current range, but has been somewhat overshadowed by the latest versions of popular series like the PowerShot G11. But while the G11 officially remains Canon’s flagship compact, the S90 is arguably more compelling.
  • Pros: Pocketable body with great controls., 3.8x zoom with f2.0 aperture at 28mm., Great quality 3in / 460k screen., Full manual contro, RAW files and HDMI.
  • Cons: No HD movies or zooming when filming., Slow burst shooting – below 1fps at full res., Panasonic LX3 better-featured., M4/3 better for noise and shallow DOF.

  • Excerpt: The Canon Powershot S90 is a small digital camera packed with features. These include manual exposure modes, the ability to shoot in RAW mode and a lens with a maximum aperture of f/2. More standard features include 10 megapixels and a 3.8x wide angle lens. When it comes to picture quality the Powershot S90 is hard to beat unless you are looking to step up to a Digital SLR. This camera showed no obvious weaknesses in any of my photo tests.
  • Pros: Picture quality - LCD screen - Handling - Features
  • Cons: Shutter delay with flash

  • Excerpt: Usually I'd spend a lot of time running through features and talking about performance before giving you the bottom line on Canon's new pocketable camera. But I just can't be coy about this one. The S90 is the best compact camera I've ever used. Oh, you'd like to hear more? Certainly. Canon set out to pack the tiny S90 with the same features pros and advanced amateur shooters look for. And they've succeeded in nearly every aspect.

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot S90 brings some powerful creative controls in a package that fits right into your pocket. But it is a compact camera first, and as such, delivers impressive point and shoot performance. For those looking for a little more fun, then the S90 delivers it by the bucket load. It isn't alone in this regard, with Canon taking some of the lessons from the popular G10 and giving you a tighter pocket-friendly (if not wallet-friendly) package.
  • Pros: Creative control options, Control Ring, size, image quality, useful ISO range
  • Cons: Video offering a little disappointing, price
