As befits a camera of this calibre, the Canon PowerShot S90 compact camera features a wide range of powerful manual and automatic controls that give photographers creative freedom. The Canon PowerShot S90 features an intuitive lens Control Ring, which enables users to adjust the settings of various functions by twisting the selector at the base of the lens barrel to the left or right. The Control Ring can be used as a quasi-manual zoom offering a closer view of subjects in 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 105mm steps.
The Canon S90 digital camera allows fine custom adjustment of the camera’s white balance settings - enabling compensation of different kinds of tungsten, fluorescent and other light conditions for perfect results every time. For quick and easy snap shots, the Canon PowerShot S90 includes Smart Auto with Scene Detection Technology. This selects the scene type from 22 variables, applying the best settings for optimum output - a great asset to those who love to point-and-shoot without worrying about the technical details. Smart Auto now measures movement of objects or people in a scene, activating Servo AF/AE to ensure that the focus and exposure are locked onto a subject.
For more creative control, users of the Canon PowerShot S90 digital camera can also choose from a variety of Scene Modes (SCN on the Control dial) that enable them to choose the best settings for particular shooting situations - ideal for creative effects or when shooting in difficult lighting. A new Low Light mode can help users capture reduced resolution 2.5 Megapixel images in very dim light at ISO speeds of up to ISO 12800 and at a fast 2.4 frames per second.
