S95... almost same ol' problematic ring

I now own the S95, so I feel more than qualified to state... the rear control ring on the S95 is still way too easy to turn accidently or unknowingly.

It is a bad design that Canon refused to abandon. Instead it has some slight detentes or clicks. Although it is not quite the loose cannon of the S90, it is merely a slighter less loose cannon.

So I guess I will be looking to see if there is some kind of add on ring blocker like there is for the S90.

Was hoping to keep on using my S70's, but the processor is just way too slow, and the video too small.

All I can say is that I wish Canon would get its head out of its... cannon.

Still waiting for the Canon FF/APS compact...
