|Canon Digital IXUS 90 IS review : Regardless of the fact that camera manufacturers are disappearing or cooperating, the impressively large offer of digital compact cameras still stands strong. The mutual differences on the other hand are increasingly hard to discover, certainly for the consumer. Resolution, zoom range, format and so on are features we find in every camera. It is not easy for today's consumers to take their pick from the average (online) shop assortment.

However, camera manufacturers still succeed in 'being different' even if the remarkable feature they develop does not add directly to the quality but instead to the photographic experience or lifestyle. Take a manufacturer like Canon for example. Canon have dominated the design camera segment with their IXUS cameras for years now. And even 1.5 months after the introduction of a few new models on the PMA in Las Vegas, Canon shake up the market again with the introduction of a threesome new IXUS models including the new Canon IXUS 90 IS that I will evaluate in the following review.
10 Megapixel Canon IXUS 90 IS camera
The Canon IXUS 90 IS camera has a stylish and a compact trendy body offering 10 Megapixels of resolution. With the help of a 3x optical zoom, unfortunately no 28mm wide angle, Canon's optical Image Stabilizer (IS) with lens-shifting feature, PureColor LCD II and integrated enhanced intelligent software the Canon Digital IXUS 90 is a camera with powerful features packed in a neat and compact size designer housing.
Neat designed digital camera
I have mentioned it before but I'd like to say it again. It keeps amazing me that a camera line such as the IXUS is capable of appearing with a new striking design every single time. Many competitors have tried to copy the design and they have developed compact stylish cameras but they have never succeeded in surpassing the IXUS series. The very first concept consisting of a box with a circle (the lens) in the centre is still the base for the IXUS design. The new Canon IXUS 90 IS camera has a neat design with angled elements and lines integrated in the housing, which makes it a distinct creation and in my opinion a very beautiful result.

Other features such as for instance quality and user's ease are just as important in contributing to the success of a camera. Immediately after the introduction I was able to lay my hands on a full-production model for testing and dig into the ins and outs of this new model. I have had the Canon 90 IS in the office for a short period of time and have tested the camera in practice. My findings of the camera's features can be read in the following Canon Digital IXUS IS review.
