Canon IXUS 90 IS - Test Shots - Detail and Lens Performance

By Riyad Emeran



Our Score:


A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. Pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.


The 35mm wide end of the lens is reasonable, but I'd expect 28mm at this price.


Taken from the same position as the shot above, at full zoom (105mm)


The macro setting will focus down to 3cm. Not only has it captured the tiny MicroSD card, but you can clearly discern the nap of the paper that it's resting on.

After having recently owned a Panasonic Lumix Fs5 and Nikon Coolpix S560 and being unhappy with both of them I decided to buy one of these little numbers based on a few good reviews. I can honestly say I love it. It produces excellent images, the build quality is beyond reproach, it also looks stunning. It also has a great range of features, such as face detection that actually works (Unlike the Nikon) and an Auto mode that is almost fool proof (unlike the Panasonic). However there is plenty of scope to be creative with this camera, you can manually select ISO and colour setting as well as manually select long exposure times. It also has a colour accent mode which allows one colour to come out in colour and everything else to be in black and white.

The only things I am not too keen on are the limited zoom range and the fact it is quite heavy. But that is the price you pay for it being all metal. There is also a small amount of corner blurring on some photo's but it is in no way worse than other compacts I have used.

I would recommend this camera to anyone after a decent quality compact. It may not be the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.
