It's nice to see somebody taking compacts seriously...

In case you haven't already seen the new Canon Powershots, here they are (image courtesy DPReview)

Top - S90; bottom - G11.

The interesting thing isn't the feature set, or the LCD, or any of the external stuff. It's that they actually reduced pixel count from 15 to 10 on the same sized sensor as before, meaning hopefully much better image quality - lower noise, better color, better dynamic range. That's the G10.

And then they got serious and stuffed that inside a nice compact body - that's the S90. And this one should be *really* interesting. Shoots raw, too.
