Canon PowerShot Pro90 IS Review
As with the G1 you can use the flash in continuous shooting mode, however, unlike the G1 the Pro90's flash does not recharge as fast and thus the fastest you can take shots in continuous mode with the flash enabled is one frame every two to three seconds.
Hot-shoe / External Flash
As with the G1 the Pro90 features a full E-TTL hot-shoe built onto the top of the camera. This allows for complete compatibility with a range of Canon Speedlite: 220EX, 380EX, 420EX and 550EX and also non-TTL use of other flash / studio systems.
An optional extra is Canon's excellent SHC-PS300 semi-hard case, this case has a separate hard base which screws into the tripod mount of the Pro90 and allows the protective case to hang below when taking a shot. Well made and well designed.
Optional accessories include the LH-DC58 Lens Hood (shown left) and WC-DC58 (x0.8) wide angle converter (shown right) which converts the effective focal length to 30 mm - 296 mm.
Supplied with the camera is the same Infrared remote control first seen on the G1, with a 5 m range (from the front) it can be used to remotely fire the shutter release, control the zoom and other menu options or as a control for playback (say of a slideshow on a TV screen) with thumbnail, zoom and DISPLAY buttons also available.
Canon appear to now consider this as standard equipment which is only good news for owners.
