Excellent control system for manual, semimanual shooting; fantastic wide-angle f2 lens; very good low-light photo quality.
Performance is merely average; no HD movie mode or optical zoom while recording; no optical viewfinder and a couple other design miscues.
As long as you're not expecting dSLR speed in a tiny body, the Canon PowerShot S90 is an excellent compact camera for advanced amateurs.

I have always been a big fan of canons since my first canon camera, I feel like no other company can compare. It has great picture quality, easy menu options, advanced technology, and leading the market in camera production.
What led me to the Canon PowerShot S90 was the low f/2.0 and you can't get that on any other compact camera currently. It takes great low light pictures and the camera i had at the time before the S90 took HORRIBLE low light pictures. It was red, grainy, out of focus, blurry ...i sold that thing for cheap and never regretted it. It was a sony cybershot and the only reason I got it was because it was white and pretty to look at.
I remember my first time uploading the pictures I took with the S90...i honest-to-God, couldnt believe my eyes. It was so crisp, clear -so perfect! Like i had taken the pictures with an SLR. Seriously, if you're not ready to lug around an slr camera, this is the next best thing you can get - and it's so TINY! imagine an SLR camera compacted in a normal sized compact camera -imagine the possibilities~
The resale price is $430, eh- kinda pricey. But I got it on ebay for about $370. THANKS EBAY! It is so worth the investment. Every penny, especially if you're struggling with a not-so-amazing camera. I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed.
I dont have anything bad to say about it at the moment other than i scratched it (although I dont remember how, when, or where) and no black sharpie or marker will keep the silver spot covered. Other than that, it's the perfect camera for me - aperature settings, sleek and simple design, amazing picture quality, low light settings, and lots of custom setting options. Great work Canon !
My son in-law and daughter purchased this camera before I did and they loved this camera. This camera is very easy to use for me. I love how you can change the settings using the ring function for sunsets, fireworks (they came out awe-some), beach, snow, night shots, indoor, night scene, foliage, landscape, portrait and view your pictures. All the pictures came out crystal clear. I have only had it about one month now and there is nothing that I do not like so far. Other camera's shutter speed seem too slow for me and pictures were not as sharp. I certainly would recommend this camera.
I recently purchased this camera as a replacement for my girlfriend's Canon G10 that I lost. I actually lost it directly after her graduation. We went to lunch to celebrate, when we left, I forgot the camera there. Later that night, she wanted to look at her grad pics and I realized that I lost it. Even though, she said it was fine, I KNOW it wasnt. Not knowing that the G10 was no longer being sold, I started doing many searches on Ebay for a direct replacement. This is when I found that there was a newer, G11. Shortly after finding this out, a friend of ours actually bought himself one. My GF fell in love with it... I did as much research as I could about the G11 and the differences between it and the G10. it had a better sensor than the G10, it was excellent in low light situations, and it had an articulating screen. I soon found out that, price wise, the G11 was the same or cheaper than the G10 when searching online (even used G10s!). I spoke to a camera buddy of mine, he said this was very common. The same thing happens every time a new G series comes out. Everything that I was reading about "G10 vs G11" told me that the G11 was the one. But while doing my searches I found a lot of threads about "G10 vs G11 vs S90" or even just "G11 vs S90"... my curiosity was piqued. I soon found out many heated discussions about which was better. From what I gathered, the G11 & S90 was almost the same in performance. The only major differences were more physical than anything; the G11 has the articulation screen, a flash hotshoe, an optical viewfinder, and the lens zoomed just a tad further. BUT, and this is a huge one for me, its no where near as pocketable as the S90. This is what made the S90, the clear winner in my mind (ohh and the fact that it about $100-150 cheaper than the G11). One forum poster said, something to the effect of, picture quality is going to be 100x better from the camera you have with you than from one you dont. or maybe it was, the best camera is always the one that you have with you. And I must say, I HATED trying to carry around the G10 when my GF didnt have her purse with her and she LOVED to bring it with us everywhere. Hence, why I set it down in the restaurant in the 1st place!!! So, I figured that I would have no problems carrying the S90 around everywhere we go. And I do! it comes with us EVERYWHERE now! The ONLY complaints we had was, because of its size, its hard to hold sometimes, kinda slippery. The other thing is the control wheel on the back, its very easy to unintentionally rotate it. My GF quickly found this out when she was getting to know the camera and she erased all her pics on accident, luckily there was nothing important lost this time. But we found solutions for both these issues. If you pick up a S90, you MUST go to Lensmateonline and pick up the S90 Grip & the Control Dial Solution. they'll run you about $40 but it will make a world of difference!!! Now I can say there is NOTHING I can complain about the S90. Its our perfect camera! ohh, I forgot to mention how cool the dial ring is! it reminds me of an old school camera. My GF tells me that everything she was able to do with her G10 she could do with the S90, using the front dial ring and the rear dial control. So to whoever is reading this, GO OUT AND GET YOURSELF A S90 TODAY!!! You will NOT be disappointed! just remember to get the grip and dial solution from lensmate. Cheers! -T
The Canon PowerShot S90 is Canon’s best high end S-Series compact point and shoot digital camera. Using the exact same sensor as Canon’s top of the line point & shoot, the PowerShot G11, the S90 delivers incredibly usable results in higher ISO (up to 3200) segment where most other point and shoot cameras would simply fail. Canon achieves better noise control through both hardware (larger than usual 1/1.7″ CCD sensor with 24MP pixel density) and software means (Digic 4 Processor and Canon’s DPP image editing software).
I’ll try to sum up some pros and cons of this camera after using it for a few days.
Start with Pros:
Excellent noise control, usable images up to ISO 3200; resolution below iso 1600 comparable to a DSLR.
Compact – will slip into your jean pocket, but don’t sit with it.
Digic 4 Engine automatically corrects for lens distortion in JPG RAW(only by using DPP) and Movie Recording.
Useful front rotating dial, accompanied with the control dial on the back of the camera, allows control of 2 variable factors (ie. F stop & Shutter Speed, or ISO & Scene Selection) easily.
Plenty of manual control, as well as a handful of fully automatic modes and scenery recognition system.
Useful face recognition, great for parties and get togethers, not so good for selective focus.
Plastic LCD front protective glass, less likely to crack, but respectable to scratches.
Highly customizable white balance settings.
Ability to shoot RAW data
Despite been a very capable camera, the S90 falls short in a few areas:
Incredibly short battery life – less than 180 shots in cold weather. about 200 in normal temp. You’ll want to have at least one backup battery with you.
No HD Movie recording capability – most entry level P&S cameras got HD, why not this one?
No autofocus or zooming during movie recording, basically renders movie recording useless.
Back control dial is easily moved around by accident when holding the camera, resulting in unwanted exposure adjustments.
On/Off button in an awkward position (right in middle of top cover), hard to reach for.
Automatic popup flash will almost always get into your way, based on the way we hold our cameras.
At telephoto end of zoom, aperture drops to F4.9 wide open, and max out at F8, very slow indeed.
Noticeable shutter lag, autofocus may not lock when subject is moving.
Lens distortion is not automatically corrected in RAW if not using Canon Supplied image editing program (DPP)
It may seem like the cons are overwhelming the pros, but you should not be discouraged, this is by far the best compact point and shoot I have used.
I love this camera!
Being a retired Pro photographer I like a camera that is heavy enough to brace against, has excellent resolution and a fast and accurate focus.
I had a Canon SD600 that I really worked during vacations and anywhere I didn't want a full size rig. I ended up giving that to my nephew so I could buy a newer canon.
I tried the SD1400 but that was too flimsy so I got the S90. It's got all the funcions that a photographer could want plus a great manual setting.
I highly recommend the S90 for anyone who doesn't need a fully automatic camera as well as people who want a device that will help you strut yer stuff!
