  1. Canon IXUS 90 IS review

    Canon IXUS 90 IS review

    7  

    The Ixus 90 IS takes up its positions in the middle of Canon's Ixus range. It lacks the wide angle and longer zoom of its superiors, yet offers this year's must-haves; image stabilisation, a high pixel count sensor, face recognition, and a reasonable price.

    Many an upturned nose has been pointed in at compact cameras by 'serious' photographers but the eminently pocketable A650 is not to be sniffed at. A 12.1MP sensor takes in the view via the same 6x zoom lens as Canon's more expensive PowerShot G9.

    This camera caught our eye in among Canon's annual end-of-year product deluge. It's the latest PowerShot and includes the same DIGIC III processor as Canon's IXUS and DSLR models.

    The G9 is a development of the 10-megapixel PowerShot G7. The G9 might look very similar from the outside but it incorporates a series of improvements, which should greatly increase its appeal

    When is an SLR not an SLR? When it's a Canon S5. The S5 certainly lookslike one with its large lens, chunky handgrip, hotshoe for externalflash and enough switches and dials to start a science experiment

    The relentless march of digital technology means that new features are arriving almost daily - so how do you decide which are worth pursuing? You could do worse than simply wait and see which ones Canon decides to include in its Ixus range

    The current crop of models in Canon's Ixus range may look very similar, but they aren't all created equal. Take the 850 IS, for example... it has all the good looks of its stable mates but comes with a 7-megapixel sensor and a generously wide angle lens

    Remember the days when digital cameras looked like digital cameras, instead of slivers of sculpted metal or retro SLRs? Picking up the chunky A640 is like travelling back to a simpler era - it's unashamedly heavy and has an optical viewfinder...

    Just how hard is it to connect a cable and transfer images across a USB connection? Well, it's obviously too much for some people, otherwise why would Canon produce this Wi-Fi-capable Ixus?

    Pocket a camera and some cash with this handy digital bundle. When Canon launched its IXUS camera brand as an APS film model, wayback in the early 1990s, it was the last word in style and high-qualityconstruction

    Canon's Digital IXUS range of cameras has virtually become a byword forcombining style with performance. But with the new IXUS 65, Canon has a fight on its hands.

    Going grey is a sign of ageing but the PowerShot S3 IS wears it very well, trading in the ubiquitous silver of its predecessor for a much more classy looking gunmetal grey finish

    We took this camera along to a skittles match... a match in which your reviewer's mother was taking part. "Did you bring your camera?," she asked. Her face fell when the PowerShot A620 appeared. Perhaps she was expecting something slimmer

    What does £100 buy these days? Three budget flights to an obscureBaltic state, a couple of rounds at a fancy London bar, or this brandn ew three megapixel camera from Canon.

    It's rare to find anything with a Canon badge on it that's not well screwed together. The Ixus 750 proves the point with a wonderfully sturdy and robust feel to all the buttons and switches, combined with a top-quality finish.
