Hands On: Canon PowerShot S90

I got some hands-on time with all of Canon09 this morning, but the feature-rich S90 really stood out in the pack. The S90 is clearly aimed at the serious enthusiast looking for something more compact than the rangefinder-like G11. Despite its small form factor, it sports an impressive spec sheet, boasting a 3.8x optical zoom lens that opens all the way to f/2.0. Behind the optics is a 10-megapixel High Sensitivity System, which uses lower resolution with bigger pixels to improve image quality.
