G11 over the S90

I bought the S90 and kept it for two days and found I didn't like it. The reason being it was to small for my large hands.

The popup flash always hit my finger that I had where I normaly do when holding a camera. The shutter button seemed to be in the wrong place for me. The off on switch was to small and sunk to low for me. Just to small is the biggest complaint I had with it.

I took it back and got the G11 and right out of the box I knew I had made the right decision. Fits me much better and I feel more like I am holding a camera.

Other than the size I had no problem with the pictures the S90 took. They were great.

I have taken a couple with the G11 and they are as good if maybe little better since I can now hand hold the camera a lot better.

I have never had a swivel LCD so that will take some getting use to. All in all I am glad I traded up for the G11.

Hope I am not speaking to soon since I haven't taken but a couple pictures with it tonight. Tomorrow I will test it out more when its light outside.

Excuse my spelling. Been many moons ago since I was in school...:)
