Yesterday I went to the camera store to hold both the Canon S90 and the equally-awesome Canon G11 in my hands. As people (thank you people!) reported when I last talked about this, the Canon S90 is far smaller. So we have a winner! I bought the S90. I was also enchanted by this boxy leather case for it, it’s far quicker to get the camera out of it than a zippered case.
(Just after I took the shot above my poor little Nikon ran out of power and reported “Battery Exhausted”. Aw, cute.)
I also bought the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens that is recommended over and over again for Canon DSLRs. I have yet to snap it on to my Canon XSi, but I’m hoping for a chance to do some side-by-side comparison photos soon.
(p.s. Glazers Camera here in Seattle is excellent. I admit I was a bit intimidated going in but everybody there was geekily enthusiastic and friendly. Also, should my camera ever need repairs they will give me a loaner! The old camera served us well as the cheap and bought at the last moment camera that we brought with us when we eloped, and will live a full new life as the camera that lives in Scott’s gig bag to capture super fantastic backstage shenanigans. Many of you feel bad for this camera but do not, the new one is much better.)
