Canon Digital Ixus 900 Ti
Advantages: Range of colour options, excellent battery life
Disadvantages: Diminished picture quality in low light conditions
As a design student I was in need of a high performance digital camera, with professional image quality capabilities, as far as digital cameras go. I have owned a Canon Ixus900ti for 3 years, and it is still as precise as when I bought it, despite a few bumps and drops along the way, which it's fully withstood.
At 10 megapixels, it's a camera which with the right light and shutter speed settings, at which there is plenty to choose from, you can really get some high quality results.
In terms of modes and settings, there is a "Manual", "Automatic", "Scene" and "Movie" modes, allowing the user to determine what fuction capabilities are required. This is particuarly useful as in Manual mode, the user can pick and choose from a generous range of shutter speed settings, and also colour enhancement (including B/W options and sepia).
The movie mode function is something I have used at a variety of events, including indoor concerts. Generally, the footage is of good quality, however is best suited to daylight filming. If you use movie mode whilst in a particuarly noisy atmosphere, the sound quality can sometimes be poor.
The lens and zoom functions (up to 12x zoom) is quite good, however sometimes if you zoom to the maximum allowance the image can be blurred.
One of the most helpful and perhaps also environmental advantages about the Canon Ixus 900ti, is that the battery comes with a charger, therefore there is no need to buy batteries for this camera. I have found the camera life for a fully charged battery (charging time to full is approx 2 hours), to be excellent infact it has only run out on me once in the 3 years I have used this camera, with only occassional charging needed.
Perhaps the only disadvantages is that in certain light conditions, particularly indoor arena's and with other challenging lighting conditions, the picture quality becomes diminished without the use of the flash.
Also, there is no internal memory which with other brands of cameras is a fairly standard feature, however if you invest in an SD card, this isn't too much of a problem providing you remember to check it's in the camera before going to use it, as your picture will not save otherwise.
Overall, I would say the Canon Ixus 900ti is a worthy investment for those who are looking for a reliable Digital camera, who want a reliable model with a range of options. I would say this is definately suitable to take on holiday or for nights out.
Summary: A great investment for those wanting a digital camera with features to explore
