Canon S90

I don’t own this camera, but based upon the specs it has to be just about the ultimate on-the-bike shirt-pocket camera for serious shooters. Check out the specs:

  • 28mm-105mm (eqiuv.) f/2.0-4.9 lens
  • 3″ 3:4 TFT LCD monitor
  • 15-1/1600 sec. shutter
  • 10.0 Megapixel, 1/1.7-inch sensor
  • Optical image stabilization
  • Auto, P, Av, Tv plus full manual shooting modes
  • Lens control ring
  • Raw capability
  • 3.94 x 2.30 x 1.22 inches (100.0 x 58.4 x 30.9mm)
  • 6.942 oz. (196.8g) with battery and card

Addendum to “Upcoming Reviews”

I didn’t mention these bikes in our post from yesterday, but of course, we’ll also be reviewing our new Rivendell Sam Hillborne and Rivendell Betty Foy in 2010. These are our personal bikes, so the reviews will be more long-term and in-depth than is normal for bikes that are here only on short-term loan. They’ll also be our test beds for part-and-accessory reviews, so you’ll be seeing lots of these bikes over the coming year.
