Always wanted one of these years back (about 1999). I was put off due to a magazine article, which said that if the internal battery failed, then the camera would need a professional repair. I thought that meant the camera would be useless, but apparently the battery is only a back-up for when the main batteries are not installled.(It powers the LCD display when the camera is turned off, but a film is loaded.) Now that it looks as though there is nothing to fear re failure of the internal battery, I am looking forward to try and find a good T90. The only other point raised in reviews is the fact that the magnets(which fire the shutter ?)can become sticky, causing the EEE message. Apparently this can be prevented by firing the shutter occasionally, when the camera is stored, for a few times, and at reasonably frequent intervals of say, a few weeks. Anyone with good feedback, suggestions, and personal experience of the Canon T90 please feel free to post your comments. Through not going digital I have saved hundreds of pounds (££££'s) and like to stick to film(APG) and love manual focus cameras.
