As well as being compared against other compacts, the Canon Digital IXUS 900 Ti is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs and travel zooms. The Canon Digital IXUS 900 Ti's top rivals come from Canon (such as the EOS 1200D and the PowerShot IXUS 125 HS) and Casio (such as the Exilim EX-ZR1000 and the Exilim EX-Z1050)

compared toCompact competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon 900 Ti compared to other compact competitors include: it has higher quality type of viewfinder (tunnel vs none) and has a faster max shutter speed (1/2000 of a second vs 1/1600 of a second).

However, on average it has a much narrower wide angle lens (37 mm vs 28 mm), has a slightly smaller screen (2.5" vs 3"), doesn't have image stabilization (none vs lens), has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS) and is older (september 2006 vs may 2010).
