I was out this afternoon at a camera Club meeting talking up my winter quarter courses when I came across this photo taken with the S-90

I am too having the same piece S90 and as compared to my previous camara, this one is very powerful. It's small pocket sized, used memory card, instead of Camara roll, high definition / megapixel , easy to print quicky , easy to transfer and easy to view on and gadgets. Well i am planning to buy more expensive one..kindly suggest the best.

Regards,
Kristina

kristina-

Welcome to the Forum. We are glad you dropped by.

In as much as this thread is devoted solely to the Canon S-90 camera, I would suggest that you post your question in the folder called "Which Camera Shall I Buy."

Have a great day.

Hi there, Folks-

We had a huge Pacific Ocean storm come ashore with huge waves and lots of wind. Our S-90 was out ready to record all that energy. Here is how it looked.

Have a great tomorrow.

Hi there, Folks-

Today our Canon S-90 comes to you from Las Vegas, Nevada. This is the front of the New York-New York Hotel and Casino.

Have a great weekend.

Sarah,

Interesting thread, as per usual.

A question I have.

Given that you have both the Canon G11 and S90, if you could only have one camera and it was either... the Canon S90 or the Canon G11 which would you select ?

Criteria being :

  • Highest quality of photograph
  • Ability to take very good pictures at various levels of lighting, including difficult lighting situations
  • Robustness of camera build
  • Anticipated durability and reliability...anticipated as they are both new
  • Features
  • Ability to 'control' camera settings
  • Other factors I've missed and you may wish to add.
Thanks, Les

Actually, Les-

I felt that both the Canon S-90 and the G-11 represented some real compromises. The S-90 has too much distortion at its wide angle position and the G-11 does fine up to ISO 800, and then noise becomes gradually more pronounced.

The built quality of the G-11 was better than the S-90 overall. The G-11 naturally has more overall control than the S-90 and the G-11's optical viewfinder leaves a lot to be desired. As a result, on 25 November I returned both cameras.

So I am once again back with my DSLR cameras.

Have a great day.

Thanks Sarah for your informed assessment. With the info you have provided I have made a decision.


I was wondering during the past month or so if the G11 would be a good substitute for a DSLR.

You may recall that I've considered getting a Canon G series as a daily carry around to replace carrying around a DSLR.

In April of this year I agonized a bit over whether to buy a G10 or a Pentax KM (K2000)...eventually going for the KM as when I checked out photos at different ISO's and enlargement sizes the KM as a DSLR seemed to reign supreme..or at least better to my eye.

But I wondered whether the G11 with some of it's tweaks, lower MP level, etc...was the equivalent to a DSLR. Thank you for your assessment, which confirms to me that I was wise to go with a small, entry DSLR as a daily carryaround.


I think eventually a manufacturer, possibly Canon will come out with a slightly larger P + S which can accommodate a larger sensor...but still have some of the size advantages of a P+S and the rest of the features of the G series. I'll wait for the G12...see how that fares.

Have a happy American Thanksgiving.


Les
