Phil Askey van DPreview heeft een review gemaakt van de Canon Pro 90 IS digitale camera. De Canon Pro 90 is de opvolger van de Canon Pro 70. De camera heeft ongeveer dezelfde engine, features en functionaliteit als de Canon G1, met als grootste toevoeging een grote 10x optical zoomlens. De camera heeft een 3,34 megapixel CCD, waarvan 2,6 effectief. In het artikel wordt de camera vergeleken met de Nikon Coolpix 990, de Sony DSC-F505V en de Canon G1, op welke de engine van de Canon Pro 90 is gebaseerd. De reviewer is zeer enthousiast over deze digitale camera:
When Canon first announced the Pro70 they managed to hit a nerve with traditional photographers which brought them into the digital arena, looking very "SLR Like" the Pro70 was familiar yet at the same time new and cutting edge. To this day many photographers still swear by the Pro70.
The Pro90 is a very different beast, we could have guessed ahead of time that it would have the 10x zoom lens announced earlier by Canon, the 2.6 megapixel resolution will probably be a surprise to many but in our real life use it made little difference day-to-day. Feature wise the Pro90 is as rich as the G1 on which its based, and we all know how popular the G1 has become. There are certainly gripes and things which need to be put right, but as a whole the Pro90 currently stands alone as the digital camera with the combination of a long zoom lens and 2.6 megapixels of resolution.
Anyone considering a 3 megapixel digital camera should seriously consider the Pro90, forget bolting aftermarket 3x lenses onto that fragile lens thread, this camera has everything you need in one package, that plus great image quality. Anyone considering the Sony DSC-F505V or Olympus C-2100UZ must now consider the excellent Canon Pro 90 IS. Kudos once more for Canon.
