The 900-series of the Canon ELPH digital cameras is usually pretty deluxe, and the Canon SD990 doesn't disappoint.
In addition to the Canon SD990's 14.7-megapixel sensor, 2.5-inch LCD, and 3.7x lens, this curvy little digital camera has a full Manual exposure mode that should pique the interest of photographers wanting a little more control. Image stabilization is of course standard on the Canon SD990, as is face detection, intelligent auto, and intelligent contrast, but a new Quick Shot mode primes the camera to capture action when used with the optical viewfinder. Though it's small, the Canon SD990's images can be printed at up to 16x20 inches with good detail, thanks to the high-resolution sensor. Lens flare is a minor problem with the Canon SD990, especially in daylight shots, so prepare to limit print sizes to 8x10 to avoid a slight glow around bright objects, but other than that, the Canon SD990 is an impressive photographic tool, full of interesting twists.
