Re: G11 over the S90

LOL if you want, but I think Iloco made some excellent observations of the S90:

1. The shutter is in the wrong place...I find myself wanting to push the rotating dial;

2. The fingers on the left block the flash;

3. The rear dial spins too easily

That said, I'm still weighing whether the pluses outweigh the minuses on my 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.

Lol, well there's always going to be someone who complains about something, huh? "to small"...chuckle.
