It's the weight

An S90 weighs 175g, any DSLR weighs about 600g with the lens. Holding that at arms length is going to cause camera shake. This is only a problem when shooting video, because normally you can use the viewfinder which is much better.

As to the problem with heat on the rear screen, it's nothing I've ever noticed in 5 years of DSLR use, but I don't use the rear screen heavily.
