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.
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.
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: The camera is nice and compact - definitely small enough to slip into a pocket or purse. It operates quickly and takes good shots. The S9 is also one of the cheaper, high quality ultra-compact cameras that you'll find. Unfortunately, with the money that you save, I would recommend that you get a spare battery since the battery life of the camera is not amazing. It would probably make it through a weekend vacation, but that's about it.
S90 - You can take excellent photo even you are not a PRO!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I was shopping for a replacement of my old point and shoot camera. I read a lot of reviews and finally decided to get this Canon S90 camera. I needed a low light capabiliyes for indoor and nighttime pictures especially without any flash.This small size camera did an excellent job on those photos with low-light with its fast F/2 lenses. It also have great features and manual operation that most user were looking for.
Excerpt: The best digital compact camera I've had, so far. Excellent in low light - rarely ever I use flash. Very intuitive/easy to use camera - press "on" -> wait 2 sec. -> point&shoot. Excellent image quality, in general. Fast operating even when shoting RAW images ! Very good battery life. Pocketable size. Very smart AF (with Face Detection) and AE. Problems: After 1 month a piece of dust felt inside and was visible on pictures as a blurred black dot.
Excerpt: Excellent for compact at low ISO. I 've been using it for 5 months (i bought one second hand for 200€). I also have a Canon 500D 18-200IS. I ve ended up using more the S90 as I can always carry it with me. It is a good camera compared to all compacts. SLRs of course are better but allot bigger as well Image quality: * Very good with noise especially with low ISO (80-100), where results are acceptable with virtually no noise.
