pro-style manual control.
High-sensitivity 10.0 MP sensor
A high-sensitivity CCD sensor gives outstanding image quality in a wide variety
of lighting conditions. Even images taken at high ISOs show exceptionally low
noise levels and a wide dynamic range.
Wide & bright
A bright f/2.0 aperture allows exceptional versatility, capturing low-light
images and fast-moving subjects at higher shutter speeds. A wide angle of 28mm
lets you put more in the frame, while Canon's optical IS reduces blur caused by

delivers vastly improved noise performance across the ISO range. Shoot
full-resolution images up to ISO 3200, or expand to ISO 12800 in (2.5MP) Low
Full Manual control & RAW
For creative control while shooting, the PowerShot S90 features Full Manual
mode. The option of RAW shooting with support for Canon's Digital Photo
Professional (DPP) software provides complete control over image parameters
during post-shoot editing.
Smart Auto and Shooting Modes
Smart Auto mode analyses subject brightness, contrast, distance, hue and
movement. Intelligent Scene Detection Technology then selects the scene type
from 22 variables, applying the best settings for optimum output. 25 dedicated
shooting modes are also available including Nostalgic and VGA movies.
For perfect portraits, Canon Face Detection technologies include FaceSelf-Timer
and Face Select & Track, which tracks focus for a chosen person in the frame.
Also included are Canon's blur-beating Motion Detection Technology and Servo
AF/AE, for accurate focus and exposure on moving subjects.
In shooting or playback, enhanced i-Contrast optimises dynamic range according
to the scene - retaining detail in shadows and preventing overexposure of
highlights. The result is natural images with the best possible contrast.
An HDMI mini output terminal lets you display still shots on any HDMI compatible
TV without loss of quality.
