The numerous features conform to your various creative needs with that level of sophistication you’re looking for. There’s a wider platform of manual settings. AE modes allow you to select aperture priority as well as shutter priority, offering better control over depth-of-field, subject motion, and brightness. If you adjust one, the camera offsets the other for you. Or if you prefer to use your own exposure meter, feel free to go completely manual and adjust apertures and shutter speeds to your heart’s content.
From time to time, you’ll find yourself in a situation where autofocus just isn’t possible. Whether it’s due to low contrast, low light, or multiple subjects, manual focusing may turn out to be the best option. Once you’ve established a focusing distance, the Pro90 IS will lock in that setting. And if you’re encountering under/overexposure, use exposure compensation or flash exposure compensation to control brightness.
For your convenience, the Pro90 IS offers 12 EOS-based picture-taking modes broken into Creative Zone for manual control, Image Zone for popular photo specialties like portraits or landscapes, or Auto for point-and-shoot simplicity. If you want to see how different exposure levels affect image quality, then use Auto Exposure Bracketing. A single press of the shutter release records 3 images at various exposure settings to let you pick the shot you like best.
If a picture is worth a thousand words then the Movie Recording and Playback is priceless! Like a video camera, the PowerShot Pro90 IS can record a QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) video clip (with sound) at 15 frames per second for up to thirty seconds. Then you can play back your home movies (at fast forward speed if you like) on the built-in LCD monitor or even on your TV! It even offers video output in either NTSC or PAL, allowing playback abroad.
The Pro90 IS is equipped with a built-in flash sporting 5 control modes. Use manual or auto settings to control red-eye reduction. Flash off and slow synchro settings are also available for special effects.
Now you can take your time posing for that self-portrait. Or snap a dozen family photos without re-setting the timer. That's because the Pro90 IS can use a Wireless Remote Control device that enables you to take your shots from anywhere. And when you're done, you can use it to put on a "slide show" for your friends. And for the ultrazoom, the Pro90 IS's Digital Teleconverter feature magnifies the 10x zoom by four times to max out its digital zoom at an eye-popping 40x!
