Took slightly longer for me to post this, but hope it helps. If you remember, I was trying to decide which camera to buy when I stumble upon this 2 great cameras.
The Canon Powershot S90 or IXUS 300HS? Let's start today with the brief comparison on the video I took with each of these wonderful camera.
1) Canon Powershot S90
2) Canon IXUS 300HS/ Powershot SD4000 IS
Although the S90 has a bigger sensor, from what I understood is that the sensor in the S90 does not support HD video technically. Why? Maybe someone can tell me ;)
Visibly we can see the IXUS 300HS with it's HD video capability outshine the video quality of the S90. No doubt about it.
HOWEVER, if your ear is sharp enough you can listen to the "mechanical" sound produced when I was zooming with the IXUS 300HS. This is however not existence on the S90. Why? Again, maybe someone can also tell me why! ;)
So? My verdict is, 1-0 to the IXUS 300HS. If video quality is something important I will go for the IXUS 300HS.
