Excerpt: Titanium curved body, intuitive, large buttons and nice navigating menu. It performs very fast compared to other cameras, so you wont miss anything, and the low light focusing is also a strong reason for me to like this camera.
Conclusion: Canon Digital IXUS 900 Ti compact camera The Canon Digital IXUS 900 Ti is the product of ten years of IXUS; which has led to a stylish design in a high-quality titanium housing. There are no doubts about the fact that the Canon IXUS 900 Ti is pure eye-candy; this camera truly is a top product as far...

Excerpt: The 900 Ti is one of Canon’s pricier Ixus compact cameras. For not much over £200, you get a tough, attractive titanium body equipped with a generous 10-megapixel sensor, but the camera lacks a few of its siblings’ high-end features such as optical image stabilization.
