The S90 and G11 are about the same in picture quality, they use the same sensor. There is just more bells and whistle with the g11.

As shoturtle said, the S90 and G11 are reported to have similar picture quality. I do not have any first hand experience with the G11, but mention it as a possibility because I have read that its macro ability is very good (focusing at 1cm from the object), and better than the S90 (plus as mentioned, it may be easier for your friend to handle because it is larger). However, it is also priced higher.
