My E900 was purchased to fulfil a particular need. I own or have owned 9 digital cameras and my main camera is the excellent Panasonic FZ50. What I also needed, that the FZ50 did not give, was a camera to capture some quick moment. For this I needed it to be easily usable with just one hand, with a fast turn-on to shot time. From my research and hand-testing the E900 seems to have no clear close rival. It has an excellent grip, easy to find and operate power button (not small and slippery), ...

I bought the E900 as a companion to my S9500 which I have had for over 2 years: same CCD and same menu system. In fact the E900 menus are easier to use in many ways compared to the S9500. The outstanding feature of the E900 is the sharpness of the lens. Extremely sharp right to the edges. The colours are natural. Build quality very good. An extremely easy to use camera for setting EV compensation, bracketting, top 4 shots, etc A further plus is the ability to shoot RAW, which I have not ...

The camera is great...full manual controls, great high ISO ability, RAW, and if you buy it now, its very cheap. However, this is an advanced compact aimed towards people who are learning photography or already know it. Its is well built. but dont expect it to take any large hits well. It features RAW in a small package, which apeals to many experienced shooters. However, the write time is slow, and coupled with the Xd card format, even slower. The IQ is class leading for its time, and still ...

natural colors. not over the top saturated nor too under saturated. raw mode is good for people who like post processing. superccd gives low noise in high iso pictures, without sacrificing too much details. 9mp makes cropping easy. Problems: minor annoyance -the camera does not remember some settings such as the timer, have to set it everytime after taking a picture. flash recharge is slow.

Very impressed overall. RAW is a plus. An update with image stabilization would be radical! Super CCD must do something; seems to have good shadow detail. Not since my S2 had I been so impressed. Problems: None

I have been looking for a camera for mountaineering and ski touring trying to meet the follwing requirements: o) Image quality high as possible o) Weight under 300g o) Compact o) Manual control The requirements are conflicting and the compromise was E900. I have bought it in winter 2006 and made some few thousand photos up to now. This review reflects the experience of using e990 as a mountaineering camera in relatively demanding outdoor conditions in rain, snow and cold. Positive: ------------ ...

I added an E900 to our set of compact cameras a few weeks ago. Here are some observations: For those who want a compact camera with manual modes and a good quality CCD, there are fewer and fewer options. Canon stopped the S series (it appears) with the s80. Now one would have to get the bigger G series, or settle for a consumer level A-series with only 1/2.5" CCD. Fuji has also removed manual fetures from their compact cameras. I use an F30 when I don't need manual modes, and bought the E900 ...

I’m using E900 for 5 months now. I wanted pocket size camera that can be use point-and-shoot, but also can make advanced amateur photographs when I have time and will to do so. It is exactly what I expected, and a little bit more. What I liked: Very fast and reliable, good battery efficiency, natural or very slightly adjusted colors, fast zoom, wide angle lens, live histogram (can be very useful). Impressive night photographs with very low noise, really amazing for this class of camera. What ...

For my semi-pro work, I use a Nikon D100 and D80, with a full camera bag of equipment. Other than that I've been using this E900 for a number of months in situations and places that I'd rather not lug a large bulky camera bag. I have been very, very happy with the E900's results and continued to buy more and more xD 1G cards. Nice for movies - which of course my Nikons don't take. I was particularly impressed by the E900's excellent low-light abilities, as I prefer the challenges and effects ...

very very good like it allot but way too many exposure problems. I later found out I had a bad camera not a bad model..Sometimes I got streaks of lines going thru the picture. Most of the time in low light needs flash. In brite lite it whites out . The only time I can use this is in bright lit room and regular cloudy days outdoors and in p mode but the photos are very endearing , its good the photos are so brite but then you notice they often don't have the vibrancy of well exposed shots.. ...
