Canon PowerShot S90 review

Verdict

Ultimately, the appeal of this camera is that it is the smallest on the market to feature Raw capture, and a less pricey alternative to the G11 - which has an identical sensor. The expanded ISO range, fast lens and high-resolution LCD screen only add to its appeal, and though it's not perfect - and at times frustrating to use - it is capable of superb image quality. Had it been any dearer it would have found itself in the uncomfortable position of competing with other high-end compacts or even Micro Four Thirds system cameras. The fact that it isn't means it can occupy a more comfortable territory further down, and thus having a broader appeal. I have no doubt that the S90 will be a popular compact camera - for the simple reason that it deserves to be.
