Canon has announced the launch of its new compact, pocket-sized digital camera, named as Canon PowerShot S90, which features exceptionally bright f/2.0 lens that great for shooting in low light conditions (twice as much light into the camera as an f/2.8 lens so photographers can use faster shutter speeds to reduce blur), including a strong heritage and impressive range of technologies to enhance your photography experience.
