Canon Powershot S90 Digital Camera

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

Cutting-Edge Technology Yields to Old School Feel.
Canon's storied S Series gets a revitalized new leader in the slimmer, lighter, new PowerShot S90, the perfect everyday camera for people who are serious about great photography. Image quality is superb thanks to the new High Sensitivity System and higher ISO speeds, plus an exceptionally bright f/2.0 lens that makes portraits and low-light shots come to life. Photography enthusiasts will love the new control ring at the base of the lens barrel, designed for intuitive, pro-style manual control.

Image Quality That's Better Than Ever.
New 10.0 Megapixel sensor coupled with Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor designed as the High Sensitivity System for improved low light image performance, plus a Low Light scene mode for ISO settings up to 12,800. The PowerShot S90 employs a newly-developed, 10.0 Megapixel High Sensitivity System by combining a powerful CCD sensor and Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor. Thanks to this technological advancement, the S90 is dramatically more sensitive than cameras with identical megapixel counts, and delivers spectacular images with minimal noise. Increased sensitivity demands a higher ISO speed, and the PowerShot S90 delivers with a new maximum setting of ISO 3200. Blur and camera shake are notably reduced for the ultimate in sharpness and clarity.

In addition, a new Low Light mode lets you capture images in an astonishing range of conditions. The camera automatically adjusts the ISO speed from ISO 320 to ISO 12800 in relation to ambient brightness, subject movement and camera shake.

Great Images Anytime, Anywhere.
This compact and pocket-sized camera is a must-have for everyday use for the advanced amateur. Serious photography buffs never want to miss a shooting opportunity, and that means keeping a high-quality camera on-hand at all times. With a robust feature set that meets an advanced amateur's exacting standards, the compact PowerShot S90 fits the bill. The S90 boasts an incredibly slim profile and lightweight body for pocket-sized convenience, yet packs in advanced capabilities that make every image memorable. It's the perfect take-along complement to your camera collection.

A Big Lens for Big Ambitions.
A bright f/2.0 lens, great for shooting in low light conditions or using a shallow depth-of-field for great images with beautiful soft backgrounds. The S90 sports an f/2.0 aperture, perfect for creating enticing portraits, by drawing attention to the face and blurring the background with its impressively shallow depth-of-field. The Macro setting lets you get even closer. The large aperture also does more. It lets you capture more nuances in low light shooting by using more of the available light. You'll be ready for anything with a lens aperture larger than even many professional sizes.

Easy Operation.
A customizable control ring for easy access and operation of manual or other creative shooting settings. Focus, Exposure, ISO, Step Zoom, or White Balance can now be adjusted more precisely than ever with the S90's new control ring. It's even more intuitive and quicker than the usual 2-button control and the S90 lets you decide which function the ring will adjust.

Zoom In, Zoom Out.
A Wide-angle 3.8x Optical Zoom (equivalent to 28 - 105mm) with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer. The PowerShot S90 features Canon's precision 28mm Wide-angle Lens that allows you to shoot any scene from wide-angle to telephoto. It lets you capture more in every frame, so everyone fits in a family gathering shot. When it's time to take a closer look, a 3.8x optical zoom (35mm equivalent 28-105mm) greatly minimizes camera shake and maximizes the brilliance of every detail. The camera uses a USM (Ultrasonic Motor) for high-speed, quiet, energy-efficient lens movement with precise control. Focal length is conveniently indicated on the lens barrel.

More Modes for the Advanced Amateur.
Full range of shooting and recording modes including RAW + JPEG for the ultimate creative control. The PowerShot S90's RAW mode lets you shoot images without JPEG compression. It gives you clearer images and complete creative control in editing. RAW images are transferred directly to the computer where they can then be edited using image adjustment software or a processing application to adjust your images as you please. The camera can also be set to allow the simultaneous recording of both RAW and JPEG images while shooting.

More Colors, More Amazement.
Large 3.0-inch PureColor System LCD for even greater true-to-life color reproduction. With a high resolution stemming 461,000 dots, a high contrast ratio and a wide viewing angle, the PowerShot S90 captures the more subtle variations of color in a scene to make all your images truer to the real thing. The LCD's multiple coatings prevent visual interference from dust, scratches and reflections.

Dimensions (WxHxD)
3.94 x 2.30 x 1.22 in./100.0 x 58.4 x 30.9mm

4 out of 5 stars   So far so good with Cannon S90
By Chandra Mani (Houston, TX) November 09, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot S90 Digital Camera (CNPSS90K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good in Low Light, Small / Compact, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Easy To Use
Cons: Image focus delay, Limited Zoom
Other Comments: I'm using this product for taking family photos and i'm not a professional. Cannon S90 is really a great one, the image quality is definitely better than other Cannon cameras of same calibre and it is easy to use too and the low light feature is a good one. After zoom in and zoom out etc, the image takes a little time to adjust and set to the focus, till that time the image is blurred on the LCD screen.

4 out of 5 stars   S90 a great replacement for our SD870
By George (Long Island, NY) September 20, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot S90 Digital Camera (CNPSS90K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Large Clear LCD, Easy To Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good Image Quality, Small / Compact, Good in Low Light
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay
Other Comments: This camera was chosen to replace our SD870 which suffered a lens failure after many years of use. It is primarily used when carrying a larger D-SLR is difficult. So mostly we use it for travel, mostly motorcycle travel where size and weight are critical. It has met our needs so far. It's already been used on a motorcycle trip to Yellowstone with good results. The S90 is easy to use. It works well in full auto mode but provides the option of manual override of many things if desired. I particularly like ISO 80 with its crisp detail. Shutter and Aperature priority are available if needed. The front control ring is a nice feature and makes the camera feel more professional. The only negative in my mind is the lag time for action sequences. The lag is mostly noticeable when coming from a digital SLR. All-in-all a great choice as a small, compact camera with a host of features for most uses.

4 out of 5 stars   Great little point and shoot!
By RedpointRik (Sequim, WA) August 22, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot S90 Digital Camera (CNPSS90K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great image quality, Nice Body Color
Cons: Limited Zoom
Other Comments: Well, I just got this camera, and it is a lot different from the previous Canon PowerShot ones I've owned. More complicated settings, and I am not sure I like the "automatic" macro feature. So far the photos are very nice and crisp, clear, true colors. I really might give it 5 stars after I get to know it better, but so far the controls are not intuitive, so I ding'ed it one star. Also, for the price, I think there should be more than 3.8x zoom, after all, there are other P&S cameras with up to 10x!

4 out of 5 stars   Back To Basics (But Not For Cheap)
By z (Brooklyn, NY) July 08, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot S90 Digital Camera (CNPSS90K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Lots of features, Good in Low Light, Well-designed interface, Good Image Quality, Compact
Cons: Limited Zoom, Easy to drop, Expensive
Other Comments: There are an abundance of insightful reviews about this camera out there to be found, but from my first few weeks of use, if you know what you're getting, you're bound to be pleased. It's not a super-zoom, and it's not quite an ultraportable, and it's a little too expensive to justify keeping it on Auto all the time. By my estimation, it's a *very* capable, highly customizable, compact point-and-shoot designed with image quality as a first priority. Compact though it may be, it doesn't lend itself well to one-handed operation: I haven't dropped it yet, but I've already been saved by my wrist strap a few times. For what it's worth, the build quality seems good, though I'm not about to try my luck against gravity and pavement. Though I miss a well-defined grip, the intuitive Control Ring on the front gives you a reason to bother having two hands on the camera -- it lets you assign it to your setting of choice (ISO, exposure level, manual focus distance, and so forth). It's definitely a triumph of design interface, and makes the camera's potency a lot more accessible to those who aren't keen on sifting through menus before every shot. As a small sticking point, you can't double-assign the same setting to both the control ring and the menu wheel on the back, or turn one or the other off altogether. I get why, but it would be nice to totally idiot-proof my setup, especially since the menu wheel is pretty easy to jostle. Generally speaking, though, the Control Ring is far more blessing than burden. The camera's low-light shooting prowess is a big selling point, and you needn't use the Low Light setting on the camera to take advantage of it: the lens has a maximum aperture of f/2.0, the image processor keeps most grain away even up to ISO 800, and the image stabilization is decent. Certainly, if you're just after a quick snapshot of where you were, rather than something you might wind up printing, you're in fantastic shape. The S90 offers a large range of manual control, though its lens isn't quite magic enough to make Full Manual a worthwhile default -- I use it on Program Mode, and hop to Shutter Priority when a situation calls for it. If anyone can offer a practical use for Aperture Priority mode, I'd sincerely like to hear it. Its video is pretty unremarkable, but that's not an issue for me -- I feel like the emphasis was clearly on taking good pictures, period. On the flipside, if you're a doofus like me who loves taking extreme close-ups of just about anything, the S90 has a very strong macro mode. Phew. Hope this all helps!

4 out of 5 stars   S90 for landscape photos
By R. Prather (Dallas, TX) June 26, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot S90 Digital Camera (CNPSS90K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good in Low Light
Cons: Limited Zoom, Short Battery Life
Other Comments: I'm a plein air artist and hike to many of my subject locations. I bought this camera to use instead of the heavy SLR I have. I use photos from painting locations to aid in studio work later when creating larger painting. The main draw for me was the ability to shot RAW format and the fast lens. I'm please with the camera so far.

5 out of 5 stars   Nice little Point and Shoot with manual
By Underwater Photog (Virginia Beach, VA) June 01, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot S90 Digital Camera (CNPSS90K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: I bought this camera to use as a point and shoot underwater in connection with Canon's DC-35 underwater camera housing. There are a lot of camera models out there that have housings to go with them, but most of the cameras do not have both compact size and manual controls. That and I have had good experience with Canon's digital point-and-shoot cameras. I used it mostly on automatic above water and it handled low light, sunsets, nature, scenes and portrait pictures well. Underwater I used it exclusively on manual and adjusted the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO as well as used the automatic white balance for underwater. Most of the closeups were right on and well lit, but most subjects farther away than 2 feet were bluish - even with the flash and diffuser. I only used video rarely but it seemed to capture video fine. Overall I feel that I got the best, smallest, lightest, manually-controlled camera on the market at the time and I would do it again.
