In a huge 6217-word review that's practically long enough to be published into a book, Let'sGoDigital took a highly-detailed look at the Canon IXUS 900Ti (known in the US as the Canon PowerShot SD900 Digital ELPH) compact digital camera, and gave it a big thumbs-up. After reading the review for the better part of the morning, we can say that the reviewers liked almost everything about the pretty little bauble, especially its 10-megapixel sensor with its fast one-second startup time, its attractively rounded titanium body and its high-end build quality. They sum it up like this:

The Canon Digital IXUS 900 Ti is without question a typical IXUS camera. Although a simple, effortless operation is the most important thing, they leave no doubts about the fact that there is much more to a camera than looks alone. Innovative technique is repeatedly used to increase the level of ease and user-friendliness.

The reviewers liked the camera's 3x optical zoom lens, but they thought it was a pity that it didn't have that 4x optical zoom lens of its Digital Elph brandmate, the IXUS 800 IS. The reviewers also liked the camera's 2.5-inch LCD viewscreen, and they lauded the fact that it still has an optical viewfinder as well, giving users a less battery-draining option.

One of the few negative points of the review was the camera's paucity of manual settings. But overall, it's a highly positive writeup. We're also big fans of the Canon Digital Elph series, and second the enthusiastic thumbs up of LetsGoDigital.

« there is much more to a camera than looks alone. »

that's the less that you can say when you look like that.

i liked so much the squarish Ixus design … seems this one has melt in a microwave!

what about Canon™ tech inside Samsung™ design ? the NV serie is much more appealing than this melt chocolate thing.
