This camera is indeed heavy, but the construction quality is superb. It will survive being dropped onto rough stone or cobbled streets. On these occasions, it is any attached lens which suffers, not the camera at all. The mode switch is easy to use, as is the metering switch. Spot metering is accurate and multiple spot-metering readings can be taken of the subject to be photographed. The camera even incorporates a highlight/shadow exposure compensation system to deal with a dark... (read more)

Have just bought a T90 with the 50mm f1.8 lens. It did not come with a manual, but by sitting down with the camera for about 30 mins I was able to work out the basic functions. I acquired a manual 2 days later, and have now familiarised myself with practically all its functions and capabilities. First review here criticises its weight. That is something you do not notice because of its design and balance in the hand. It has a really bright viewfinder, and although I am in my sixties,and... (read more)

Sorry to buck the trend but this camera is a tank and weighs a ton or two. If I have to carry such an imposing weight around, I'd rather it were in terms of lenses than AA batteries (plus a spare set just in case). If you are concerned with shutter priority type subjects - action photography - its great. For the rest of us where depth of field is critical its a pain as you have to work in stop down mode. Personally, give me and F1n new with the auto finder or an Ftbn and I'm set. Even ... (read more)

I owned a Canon T 90 back in the late 80 `s, had it for around 10 years, no problems at all. What can i say about it that has not already been said, quite simply the Mercedes of the 35 mm camera world.
Its super comfy to hold,easy to use,has so many top class features, including the wonderful digital metering system.....
Anyone considering buying a 35 mm camera , should look no further than the formidable Canon T 90 .
Wonder if Canon could prouce a digital T 90 ?

Bought my T90 about 12 years ago. Its a joy to hold in the hand and its ergonomics seemed to have been copied by most of the cameras on sale today. Despite not being auto focus or digital (neither of which appeal to me) this camera can still hold its own. Another gem from Canon, it has just about every thing that you could need in a camera and I love it. (read more)

5 frames a sec motordrive on AA batteries, like for the older Nikons you can buy AA's anywhere.
The Canon T90 SLR Camera has a bright crisp screen that is easy to focus with even when wearing glasses.
Brilliant metering for slide and black and white films, very close tolerances for best results.
Please read all the reviews on Canon lenses - the autofocus range is just the FD range tarted up.
Canon has and still is a world leader in optics, the lenses have good focusing "bite" which means... (read more)

I have 2 Canon T90's and evertything is perfect; their exposure settings are within a half stop of each other and with my expensive EOS camera. Try holding one of Canons. Spot on ergonomics. With my 'cheap' FD lens and film choice I can easily compete with any current high tech SLR using film. Sadly, my DSLR has shown me the future!! (read more)

I have owned my Canon T90 for years. The only drawback is the fact that there is no autofocus and I now don't find the screen easy to focus on as age is catching up on me. I now have an EOS 30 but EF lenses are not as good as FD's despite supposed advances in technology. (read more)

The Canon T90 is the most amazing manual focus camera I have ever owned. It's metering accuracy is legendary and body design and overall reliability and performance are likewise. This camera gives you so many metering options that it puts any other expensive manual focus cameras to shame. Many professionals still think this is THE modern manual camera of choice. The camera is supported by an incredible array of exceptionally sharp and reliable lenses as well as any other accessory (including... (read more)
