Summary: This is a great little camera. I just returned from a cruise to New England and Canada and I carried this camera in my pocket most of the time. It works great in Auto, but you are able to get better results, often, by making your own settings. Inside a couple of Basilicas I was able to get great pictures with out a flash. Great little camera. With my DSLR around my neck and this one in my pocket I'm ready.
Summary: My second of the same camera( due to operator, not camera). I wanted a high quality good point and shoot to fit in my pocket. The best you can buy without going to the bulky DSLR. I recognize my laziness. If I will not carry the camera with me, I can not get the picture!
Excerpt: Great to carry every day. Just like carrying my old Leica M2, can control most everything manually from the exterior of the camera with the lens dial or simple buttons on the rear of the body. I have a magnifier hood on the rear that completely covers the screen, so it is a bit like shooting with a slr. Problems: battery life sucks. even if indicates it is full, after lots of shooting, with a bit less power, some things lag or just don't seem to be able to be set.
Lots of features and excellent picture quality for a great price

Excerpt: I recently got married and wanted to buy the best compact digital camera I could afford -- we needed one for the honeymoon, knew we'd be adopting a puppy when we got back, and also wanted one that would take great photos when we start having children in a couple of years. After spending hours scouring the Internet for both professional and 'end user' reviews, I chose the Canon s90.
The Canon S90 is a tiny version of my huge professional camera.

Excerpt: I love using the Canon S90 digital camera. I am accustomed to lugging around a huge camera with all its accessory lenses, while carrying my older Canon SD550 to supplement my pictures with video, panoramics, and other cool features. The Canon S90 is quite portable because it is lightweight, but the quality of its pictures is comparable to those taken with a larger professional camera, so I can use it by itself.
Excerpt: The Canon - Powershot S90 Digital Camera is only average at best. Even though it may have great image quality that has the pictures just pop out at you, an extremely easy to use interface that a baby could operate, and packed with tons of features..wait. Nevermind this camera is amazing! Along with these amazing features it also has a fast f/2 lense, full manual control, and is very resonably priced for all! The only downsides to this camera are minor however.
Excerpt: This is my second Powershot camera, and by far my favorite! I have had other brands, but Canon has won my loyalty. The features on this camera are easy to use, the video quality is great for a pocket camera, and the pictures are phenomenal!
Excerpt: A wonderful upgrade from my IXUS. The fast f/2 helps to capture shots beautifully in low light condition. However, it is still not fast enough for active kids shots - still need a SLR for those kinds of shots. Overall, this is a great carry-around camera.
Excerpt: This camera is good due to their size and their function. Eventhough this camera is small and The Canon S90 IS THE BEST point&shoot camera I've ever owned. It is capable of shooting magazine quality images. In fact some of the images I've shot with it WERE published in magazines (I'm a professional photographer. I use it as a pocket cam when I don't want to lug my DSLR around) I'm only selling my S90 because I have tons of cameras sitting around.
Excerpt: For a pocketable camera, the S90 has nearly everything that I'm looking for. One thing that's always frustrated me with compact point-and-shoot cameras is the lack of full manual controls and actually having the ability to control the shot how I want it. Too often I'm left to the mercy of the cameras and micro-chips deciding how my pictures should look instead of my natural creative talents.
