The Ingenious Canon EOS 90D is a mid-range DSLR that replaces the 3.5-year-old 80D. It fits between the EOS 77D and the ‘yes, it still exists’ EOS 7D Mark II, and offers Canon’s latest processor and a brand-new sensor.
The 90D is essentially the DSLR version of the EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless camera, which was introduced alongside it. Since the specs are nearly identical, Canon is letting potential buyers choose what type of shooting experience they want: a midsize DSLR with an optical viewfinder and more physical controls or a smaller and lighter mirrorless model with a removable electronic finder. And, of course, the difference in native lens lineups between the EF and M mounts could attract different types of users, as well.

Large 32.5MP CMOS Image Sensor
Shoot and Capture high-quality images with the Canon EOS 90D DSLR Camera wherever you travel. Provided with the large 32.5MP Image Sensor, the camera will ensure that every image captured will have stunning image clarity, and will also allow you to crop in without losing any detail.
DIGIC 8 Image Processor
The powerful DIGIC 8 Image Processor has been incorporated into the Canon EOS 90D Camera Body, to deliver fast, powerful, and innovative technology. This will ensure that the 90D from Canon can produce stunning image quality, high-resolution 4K video footage, an impressive AutoFocus performance, and an intuitive operation.
High-Speed Continuous Shooting up to 11 Fps
All thanks to an advanced DIGIC 8 Image Processor, the Canon EOS 90D Camera is capable of delivering a high-speed continuous shooting of up to 11 fps to ensure that you capture fast-moving subjects while recording video.
45-Point All Cross-Type autofocus
The 90D camera features a new high-performance, flexible 45 points all cross-type AF system. When used with a compatible lens, each focus point is an f/5.6 cross-type, which ensures the camera can lock on to both horizontal and vertical detail quickly and precisely. The technology delivers accurate, fast autofocus and tracking over a wide area and across a range of subjects.
Designed to shoot in a range of lighting conditions, with a variety of lens and extender combinations, the AF system is sensitive down to -3EV (moonlight). It contains 27 f/8 compatible AF points (9 f/8 cross-type) and one extra sensitive f/2.8 and f/5.6 dual cross-type point in the center. For optimum flexibility, users have the choice of selecting 4 AF zone modes, which are superimposed in the viewfinder and can be quickly selected using the area selector button next to the shutter release.
Dual Pixel CMOS and Movie Servo autofocus
The 90D from Canon features Dual Pixel CMOS AF that is enhanced thanks to the improved sensor performance and revised AF algorithms in the camera. When shooting or recording in live view, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a dense array of phase-detect points across the image sensor for fast and accurate focus.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF is now also possible with all EF and EF-S lenses and can be used in combination with continuous shooting during Live View.
Record Beautiful UHD 4K Video and Full HD
Create beautiful and high-resolution video footage wherever you go with the 90D, or even when creating a travel vlog, cinematic-style movie. The Canon EOS 90D Camera delivers total flexibility with 4K @ 30 fps, or record in Full HD @ 120 fps. Additionally, you have the freedom of recording beautiful uncropped or cropped videos.
ISO 100-25 600
With the advanced sensor and DIGIC 8 Image Processor incorporated, ensures to provide an excellent light sensitivity range of ISO 100-25 600 and an extended ISO of 51 200. With the advanced technology, the Canon 90D is capable of shooting in varying light conditions. This will also allow the Autofocus system to work under moonlight (-3EV).
100% Optical Viewfinder
The Canon EOS 90D DSLR Camera Body features a bright optical viewfinder, that allows you to view your action as it takes place. Featuring approx. a 100% viewfinder coverage, makes it perfect and so much easier to track fast-moving subjects, such as birds or any sort of sport taking place.
Other Features Include:
- Built-in Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Connectivity
- In-Camera RAW Processing
- 3.0” Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touchscreen
- Approximately 100% Viewfinder Coverage
- The 1 x LP-E6N Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery provides you with approx. 1300 shots
Situated as a versatile camera with capable photo and video traits, the Canon EOS 90D is a sleek DSLR also characterized by its high-resolution 32.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor. This updated sensor design achieves enhanced image clarity, resolution, and dynamic range, along with adept sensitivity to ISO 25600 and low noise to suit working in a variety of situations.
Combined with advanced image processing, this sensor is also capable of outputting UHD 4K30p and Full HD 120p video, as well as supporting continuous stills shooting rates up to 10 fps. When working with the optical viewfinder, an apt 45-point all cross-type AF system affords fast performance in a range of lighting conditions for tracking moving subjects and working in low light, while the 5481-point Dual Pixel CMOS AF system benefits live-view shooting and movie recording by providing a smooth, natural focusing quality akin to the way a camcorder acquires focus.
Complementing the imaging capabilities, the 90D sports a vari-angle touchscreen LCD for intuitive control and compositional freedom, and an optical pentaprism viewfinder provides a bright, clear, and realistic viewing means characteristic of the DSLR shooting experience. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity allow you to pair mobile devices with the camera to wirelessly transfer files for sharing your photos and movies online.
32.5MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
45-Point All Cross-Type AF and Dual Pixel CMOS AF Systems
The cross-type design of the sensors affords greater accuracy in low-contrast and mixed lighting conditions, and the broad coverage of the 45 sensors is ideal for tracking and maintaining focus on moving subjects. Making use of the 45-points is a series of four AF area selection modes, including single-point AF; Zone AF, where you can select from one of nine AF zones; Large Zone AF, which offers a choice of three selectable zones; and 45-point AF auto selection, which allows the camera to select a single point automatically.
When recording video or shooting in live view, a Dual Pixel CMOS AF system is employed that features 5481 selectable autofocus points. This focusing system offers smooth and fast focusing performance in a similar manner to how a camcorder acquires focus. Dual Pixel CMOS AF integrates two separate photodiodes within each pixel to provide a broad and dense network of phase-detection gathering elements across a majority of the image sensor to reduce focus hunting for faster, more direct control of focus placement. When working with still imagery, this focusing system works to acquire focus quickly and accurately, making it ideally suited to shooting and tracking moving subjects so that critical focus is attained with each shot.
