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.
Canon PowerShot SD900 or IXUS 900 Ti Digital Camera Review
14 October 2007
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. Distortion and chromatic aberrations are minimal in the images; the noise is disturbing at high ISO, however.
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
Excerpt: The IXUS series by Canon are some really good cameras, but it's purely hit or miss. For instance, the Ixus i7 was a true performer, although the Digital IXUS 60 was really low on performance. The 900Ti, in the current review, features excellent build quality and is easy enough to carry wherever you want to go, even for treks. The performance, however, disappointed us quite a bit.
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 as design is concerned. The Canon 900 Ti feels durable to the touch, and features a neatly finished design.
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.
Excerpt: The numbers are out and Amazon.com has reported a record high of 4 million orders this year breaking the last year’s single-day record of more than 3.6 million orders. Among its top sellers is the Canon Powershot Digital Elph Cameras. Canon is still a big favorite of photographers all over the world and the Canon Powershot SD900 Digital Elph Camera is a special camera to have.
