Canon Powershot S90

Luminous Landscape has reviewed the new Canon Powershot S90, it features an f2.0 wide angle 3.8x optical zoom lens lens (28-105mm) with optical image stabilisation, 10 megapixel sensor, ISO3200, 3″ 461k pixel screen, manual focus, control dial, VGA 30fps video, RAW support, and exposure bracketing. The camera is available for £379

“The camera’s 10MP sensor is one of the largest found in an SPS sized camera, with a pixel density of 23 MP/cm². That’s half that of competing cameras, and it goes a long way toward improving image quality, especially anything above base ISO. To top it all off the camera’s normal top sensitivity setting goes up to ISO 3200. There’s also a special “Low Light” mode with sensitivity up to 12,500, if you can believe it.”

Ricoh GXR

“Capture the true face of your everyday world. It is the unaffected expression that is the sweetest. For this kind of candid photo, the most suitable camera must be small enough to be always with you and always ready for a casual shot. On top of that, the ability to change lenses (and therefore perspective on sensibility) to match each change in scene and mood will spur you to new levels of shooting motivation and creativity. The ideal tool for this purpose is an unprecedented new camera system. GXR. The compact and versatile interchangeable unit camera system.”
