Product description
Announced Aug 28, 2019

The Canon EOS 90D is a midrange APS-C digital SLR with an all-new 32.5MP CMOS sensor. It uses Canon's latest Digic 8 processor and an updated metering sensor, which allows for face detection when shooting through the viewfinder. It features Canon's Dual Pixel AF system for live view and video shooting, with speedy focusing and subject tracking. The camera has an average-sized optical viewfinder and a fully articulating touchscreen LCD. It can shoot bursts at 10 fps through the viewfinder and 7 fps in live view, both with continuous autofocus. The 90D is weather-resistant (to some degree), has headphone, microphone and USB-C ports (at USB 2.0 speeds, however). Connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Our review

The EOS 90D is a DSLR that functions most reliably when used in live view, thanks to its excellent Dual Pixel AF system. Through-the-finder AF is less reliable, by comparison. The camera also offers excellent Raw image quality and usable full-width 4K in a well-built, weather-sealed package with fabulous ergonomics.

Good for: Those looking to document friends and family. Anyone seeking an easy-to-use DSLR than can seamlessly handle stills and video capture. Those planning to mostly shoot in live view.

Not so good for: Sports action and wildlife photographers requiring reliable through-the-finder autofocus.
