    Friend wants a really good point and shoot. I have to do some research on my own, but just wondering what OTAP's personal opinion is.

    I have the g10 and love it. Pretty cool camera, but Ive been wanting to sell it for the S90 just because of the compactness. The adjusting ring is pretty neat too, but then you lose hot shoe capability.

    All three are good choices but you're comparing apples, oranges, and bananas.
    It comes down to:
    Size = S90
    Zoom = SX20
    Features = G11

    Just pick one!

    so if said friend is a girl, i'm assuming the s90. i dont think she wants a dslr-like body and doesn't care about the hot shoe.

    just seeing if she can handle the 5x zoom over the 20x. before i knew shit about photography i was all about the zoom.

    if its for a girl i would just get the s90. But at the same time thats a pretty baller camera for a chick, unless shes into photography. Just my .02

    If you want something smaller, and don't need a hotshoe, get the S90. Same sensor. Personally, I think the ring control on the S90 is better than the stacked dials on the G111.

    I'd go S90. That's what I'm going for for my point and shoot. 1Ds are bulky enough, so no sense getting a G series as something 'portable'
