Being this is a MTB site and we're emptybeers, I'm gunna chime in.

Why isn't the canon G10/G11 listed? it's about as good as you can get in a smallish form factor. The EOS is too large/bulky to strap to a camelbak chest strap while riding and will barely fit inside a camelbak mule.

Yeppers. All my photos are with a G9.

I have a Nikon slr now but the G9 still rules cause it's always with me and ready.

Those ARE all too big

I use a Nikon S630 for MTB. For work, for portraits, I need about a 100mm focal length lens for portraits and an f8 for sharpness. How much camera do you need?

As such this thread is nearly off-topic.:D

Interesting from my standpoint as I'm starting to hopefully shop for a "bigger" camera. I'll read through all the reviews for those 10 later.
Butt :ciappa: for MTB purposes, those are too big for an easy access, quick shot.

Jeez, no wonder you wear such a big camelbak!

I still can't believe this is one image! What's the exposure time on that?

Hasselblad's rule. I've always wanted one but can't really justify it since my only darkroom experience was back in High School. Nice looking stuff on your website too.

Photojohn showed me that camera when he was here. It is the small camera ruler.

It's got the same sensor as the g11, is smaller and $100 less. Fewer adjustments and doesn't shoot in raw format, though.

Not true, the S90 has an option for RAW + JPEG mode. The S90 is a nice camera, just wish it would shoot images faster than 1 every 3 seconds (got spoiled with my DSLR).

Not sure about the number of adjustments, seems to have plenty for me and it does pretty well in low light situations.
