Chiselled IXUS
As if carved from a single chunk of metal, the Digital IXUS 90 IS feels solid in the hand. The smooth flat key control panel enhances the camera’s unified feel. A Multi Control Dial makes it quick and simple to change settings, review images and scroll through menus.

10.0 Megapixels
A 10.0 Megapixel sensor captures images in fine detail, enabling creative trimming and poster size printing.

3x optical Image Stabilizer lens
Advanced UA (Ultra-High Refractive Index Aspherical) lens technology from Canon fits a powerful 3x optical zoom lens into the compact form of the Digital IXUS 90 IS. An optical Image Stabilizer (IS), helps you capture blur-free images in low-light and when shooting with the zoom.

3.0" PureColor LCD II
A huge high resolution 3.0” PureColor LCD II offers stunning reproduction of images and ease of shooting. An exceptionally wide viewing angle makes it easy to share your images with a group, while impressive colour contrast keeps the screen visible even in intense light.

Motion Detection Technology
There’s no need to worry about blur with Motion Detection Technology. This clever feature compensates for camera shake and subject movement while maximising image quality.

Face Detection Technology
Face Detection Technology ensures superb people shots by automatically setting optimum focus, exposure, flash and white balance. Face Select and Track lets you choose and track your primary subject, so you never lose a special face in the crowd.

Red-Eye Correction
Red-Eye Correction quickly and easily removes red-eye in camera. It can be set to remove red-eye automatically as you shoot, or during playback mode, making eyes look natural again.

Canon’s DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. iSAPS technology uses shooting scene data to optimise camera settings even before a shot is taken.

Shooting Modes and My Colors
19 shooting modes include Sunset, Indoor and Underwater Special Scene modes which optimise camera settings for the easy capture of popular subjects. My Colors in-camera photo effects can be applied during or after shooting.

Movie Options
Movie modes include Long Play (LP) for VGA (30fps) clips that use half the normal memory card space. Capture a gradual scene like a sunrise or blooming flowers for accelerated playback with Time Lapse movie.
