Canon PowerShot SD900 or IXUS 900 Ti Digital Camera Review

  • Excerpt: Titanium curved body, intuitive, large buttons and nice navigating menu. It performs very fast compared to other cameras, so you won’t miss anything, and the low light focusing is also a strong reason for me to like this camera. Distortion and chromatic aberrations are minimal in the images; the noise is disturbing at high ISO, however.

Test: Canon PowerShot SD900 Digital Elph

Pop Photo
2 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Test: Canon PowerShot SD900 Digital Elph13803070651CanonSD900 Digital ElphAt $425, the 3x zoom (37-111mm equivalent), 10.4-megapixel Canon PowerShot Digital Elph SD900 is the most expensive of the five cameras in this test. Is it really worth the extra hundred some-odd bucks? Yes, no, maybe not, it depends on what you're looking for, and it's up to you to decide. This titanium-skinned beauty feels solid and very well built.

DP Review
29 December 2007
  • Conclusion: Camera manufacturers have been producing expensive special-edition titanium-bodied SLRs for years; the combination of durability, strength and lightness (titanium has the highest strength to weight ratio of any metal) offers some real benefits for large, heavy use professional cameras. When it comes to compacts the use of such an exotic material is far less about weight or corrosion-resistance, and far more about luxury and exclusivity.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution, good color, Clean, detailed results at lower ISO settings - ISO 400 usable, with fairly light-handed noise reduction, Reliable exposure system, Fast and accurate focus, Responsive operation, Excellent user interface, easy to use, Face detection AF/AE (it works most of the time but is slower than normal focus and a bit of a novelty), Superb build quality, finish and styling, Decent macro mode, Decent flash performance, Large, bright, high resoluti...
  • Cons: AiAF focus a bit unpredictable - turn it off, Very little manual control, ISO 800 and 1600 of limited use, Some smearing of low contrast fine detail at anything over base ISO, Occasional purple fringing, Still no exposure information for shutter speeds over 1/60 sec, Some corner softness and some highlight clipping

  • Conclusion: This is an above-average ultracompact, but Canon needs to give consumers more.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality. Very good performance. Face-detection features worked well. Most high ISO settings were very clean. Excellent burst mode.
  • Cons: Canon needs to add more user-friendly menus. Video quality was mediocre. Not enough manual capabilities. Some flash shots were uneven. A bit pricey.

Canon Powershot SD900 Review

Digital Camera Review
17 February 2007
  • Excerpt: If it’s true that you can’t tell a book by its cover, then the diminutive Canon Powershot SD900 just seems too small and compact to be packing a 10 megapixel wallop. But large file size is only part of the story for a little camera that produces excellent images and color right out of the box.

Canon PowerShot SD900Ti

Digital Photography Interface
5 November 2006
  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SD900 Digital ELPH features 10 megapixels, 3X zoom, a large (and now high resolution) 2.5 inch LCD, ISO 3200 high sensitivity and a stylish titanium body. The SD900 has a rather standard 3X zoom lens. Although it doesn't have optical image stabilization, the color fringing levels from this lens are very low. The increase in battery life is not significant and still stands average.
  • Pros: Stylish titanium body; very solid too, High resolution with a good lens, Powerful flash unit, Large high-resolution LCD with good visibility, Unlimited, fast continuous shooting at full resolution, Above average performance, Impressive movie mode, now up to 4 GB, Very good image quality with low noise till ISO 800, very low color fringing
  • Cons: No manual controls, No optical image stabilization (the SD800 has it), No live histogram; very limited exposure information, No movie focus or optical zoom, XGA option is choppy
