Welcome to the Forum. We're please that you dropped by.

Yes, because the S-90 has a measurably larger imager, the image quality would be improved. Also the S-90 would provide a better high ISO capability as well.

You would not find thise improvements with the SX-210 which uses the same small imager that is found on the SD-800.

Well Itried the s90 and just didn't like the way it felt and fit me in use. Now i'm thinking about zs6/zs7.And still the sx210. Which of these if any will give me better low light and better image quality compared to my sd800is

Thanks Ijay.

The Panasonic ZS6 and ZS7 have a high ISO capability about equal to your SD-800.
