A reader wrote in to ask me if I think the Canon SD4000IS is a better choice than the S90.
My personal take is that I’d go for the S90 over the SD4000 in a heartbeat because of its customizable control ring that allows you to assign just about anything to it – aperture, shutter speed, zoom, white balance, whatever.
They are both awesome cameras but for me, the S90’s controls, which include a second dial on the back, make it an easy choice.
P.S. The Panasonic LX5 should be the next hot point & shoot, so check that one out too.
