Default Comparison to Canon D10

Thanks for listing the 2 comparison links at the end of your review. Any thoughts on comparing to the Canon D10?

Also, what was you experience with shutter lag? I did not find that in the article or specs?
Thank you.

Shutter lag is listed in Steve's Conclusion on the right hand side under Timing Test Results.
  • Shutter lag when prefocused = less than 1/10 of a second
  • Shutter lag with autofocus = approx. 1/10 - 3/10 of a second, depending on the amount of AF change
I personally like the look and feel of the W90 better, however the D10 has this one beat in the underwater department as it can go down to depths of up to 33 feet (compared to 20 feet on the W90). The D10 also has a cool system for mounting the wrist strap, with four "sockets" mounted at all four corners. However, the W90 has a nice strap with a carabiner.

As for image quality, they are both pretty close:
  • The D10 produces sharper images with less noise and more detail
  • however, the W90 produces more vivid colors
When viewing images full screen (say 25%), they both look pretty good for a consumer point-n-shoot.
