Let's start with their new idiotic comparometer. The old one was so simple to use. The new one is just stupid, it takes sooooooooooooooooooo many more clicks and effort to compare cameras.

Anyway, I have another problem with them. They say the Canon S90 is 21% better at low-light than the newer S95. I have the S90 by the way.

Now look and compare RAW files from both cameras at dpreview or whatever website you like. The S95 is clearly better at high ISO. Not by much, but it is clearly better.

How do you explain that according to DxO the S90 is 21% better at high sensitivity than the S95, but the RAW files show it's the other way around, which make the DxO error greater than 21%

DxO sucks ?
I suck ?
Sample variations between sensors ?

don't worry you don't suck there have been some discussions on this forum on correlation of DxOmark score and picture output. And those seem to be not quite correlated:) http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1033&message=37677188
