Thanks for all the input! Yeah I have and use the Canon PowerShot SD 630 and love it but am looking for more options and an all around better picture. I feel like the S90 would be a perfect step up from what I have but I have been getting back into Photography more in the past few years and would like to have more control over my digital stuff. Am I correct in thinking that the G11 would lend itself more to this? I am aware of the massive size difference but am not really too worried about carrying a larger camera. I am glad you said that about the flash Beats... Sounds a bit annoying and might be a problem when I am using "The Pod" on a weird angle. All things to consider. Basically, is the $100-$150 difference between the cameras worth the options between the two? I could care less about being able to go under water, I like the LCD screen on the G11 but I can totally live without it, I don't use flash much but when I do I would like it to be powerful enough to actually use, and like Beats I do not zoom much but would not mind the option for certain situations that call for it...
RIP Geo

I just priced the two. Cheapest s90 was $380 from reliable source. Cheapest G11 was $448 from Newegg or Dell. So that's more like a $70 difference. I'd say the G11 wins for price/value relation.

The S90 and the G11 both offer plenty of manual control and the lens ring on the S90 is ingenious if it's big enough for your fingers. I'd go to a local store to play around with both. That should help a lot.

I guess the question is one of pocketable or not and of low light or not. If you need the extra low light capacity and want something pocketable, go S90. If not G11.

Thanks Till! Yeah I played around with my friends G11 this past weekend but I have not had a chance to mess around with the S90 yet. Maybe if I have not made my decision by the time Beatle gets out her she would be kind enough to let me look hers over? Although I am very impatient and will most likely be at the store tomorrow playing around with them.  :D

So I went in to Best Buy today to check out the Camera situation. After about 30 minutes of physically comparing the two I am now leaning toward the S90. If anyone can find it cheaper than $380 please let me know. Thanks!

I am happy to! After going and holding them combined with the fact that I plan on eventually getting a DSLR. In addition, the G12 comes out and I could definitely see myself getting that when it comes out. Thanks for the advice. Many more High Quality (Finally!!!) flicks to come...

Congrats on the S90 LandoCal. Nice pick-up. More Brad Pitt-lookalike pics to come from you ! (Where'd you get those fat lips ?).

I am having issues uploading my photos since yesterday. When I connect my S90 to my computer it should automatically open up my chosen Program to upload the photos. I have checked the preferences, rebooted the computer, tried both USB ports, checked the cord, etc... Help if you can. Thanks!
