Summary

The $1,200 Canon EOS 90D is the embodiment of Canon's promise that DSLRs will remain relevant in the mirrorless era. It shoots a bit faster than the 80D—up to 10fps in AI Servo continuous focus using the optical viewfinder and 11fps with Live View. The 90D marks the debut of the first new APS-C Canon image sensor since the 24MP chip that powers models like the T6i and 80D.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

The $1,200 Canon EOS 90D is the embodiment of Canon's promise that DSLRs will remain relevant in the mirrorless era. While the best mirrorless cameras outclass most DSLRs when it comes to continuous shooting speed, 10 fps is anything but slow. In live view the 90D almost feels like a mirrorless camera, if you can ignore the heft of the it.

Canon's new EOS 90D is an attractive camera for customers happy with the features and feel of the 80D and earlier models. The camera uses the same LP-E6N as many, many other Canon SLRs. It supports face detection in the optical viewfinder, and subject recognition using Canon's iTR focus system.

Pros[**]
  • 32.5MP image sensor with support for 4K video
  • Improved autofocus
  • 4K video support

Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The Canon EOS 90D is a versatile APS-C DSLR camera. It takes sharp, clear images with a relatively high dynamic range and little noise. It's comfortable to operate and has a well-laid-out menu system that's easy to navigate. Unfortunately, it's quite bulky and does poorly smoothing out camera shake while recording.

Pros[**]
  • Good image quality in 4k and FHD video
  • Good autofocus system
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Larger than other APS-C DSLRs
  • Some controls feel a bit sluggish

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
Canon EOS 90D is perhaps the last enthusiast-level DSLR the company will ever make. Launched alongside the Canon EOS M6 Mark II, the 90D plays the traditional strengths of DSLRs – good handling, long battery life, optical viewfinder – but adds some pretty cutting-edge specs. This includes a new sensor that brings a lot more megapixels than the 80D (32.5MP, compared to 24.2MP) The Digic 8 processor also ups the ante when it comes to maximum burst speed and native ISO range.

Pros[**]
  • Top-notch image quality
  • 4K video capture
  • Dedicated Digic 8 image processor
  • Long battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 85%
Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Canon EOS 90D has a new, 32-megapixel APS-C sensor. It's one of the best DSLR cameras for advanced amateurs, especially those who want to shoot video. The camera's 45-point phase-detect AF system is similar to that of the 80D and is relatively good.

Pros[**]
  • Fully articulated touch-screen LCD
  • Fast and accurate eye- and face-detection tracking
  • Excellent battery life
  • 4K video
Cons[**]
  • Not as powerful as mirrorless

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
Canon 90D is a good all-rounder, capable of serving the enthusiast photographer who likes to take lots of different kinds of shots. Features a high-resolution 32.5 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor alongside a raft of enticing features. Focusing comes courtesy of the same 45-point cross-type AF system that was found in the 80D, but it is now joined by an improved metering sensor which gives you face detection.

Pros[**]
  • Super-fast autofocus
  • Improved focus tracking
  • 10fps shooting
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
