Control Your Point-And-Shoot With A Front-Mounted Ring..

9 02 2010

It’s been years since I’ve done any research on a point-and-shoot digital camera.. but an unforseen accident in Vegas has lead me to look for a new pocketable camera..

And that’s what leads me to talk about the Canon S90..

There are a lot of good things packed into this little box.. which makes this camera.. in my opinion.. the best point-and-shoot in the market today..

Inside.. you find the same large sensor you’ll find on the top of the line G11.. but has a faster f/2 lens than the G11.. 3″ 3:4 aspect LCD screen.. and for added controlability.. a rotating control ring around the lens.. which you can program to control aperture.. exposure.. shutter.. ISO.. and other functions.. And importantly.. make these changes quickly.. An additional control ring on the back.. and shortcut button add to making quick adjustments to squeeze the performance you need to take great photos..

It also shoots video.. but not in HD.. No matters.. My main task with this little guy is to shoot great photos when a lugging around a big DSLR isn’t feasible..

Aye.. Good bang for the buck..

I also have a feeling that we’ll be seeing this type of control ring show up on other cameras in the future.. both pocket cameras and SLRs..
