Please please please get rid of the floating navbar. for those of us on smaller screens, it takes up valuable space, and more importantly, tapping the spacebar to scroll from one screen of article text to the next leaves the first couple of lines of page 2 under the sodding navbar

Premium Compact Cameras: Best Buys

Thumb Up

s90 Mod

The mod for the s90 is an adhesive grip. It is great and highly recommended. Makes holding the camera much easier/more secure.

The S90 should have been included in this review - it is after all a review of compact cameras. The G11 whilst very good, is more in line with the newer 4/3 sensor cameras in size.

Having used both the LX3 and the S90, both impressed with quality of photos, but the S90 won on size, weight, and most importantly usability. The design is genius for times where you just want manual control...

What? And miss the Xmas sales market? Surely any new product launch would be better if it was at a time when people are gratuitously spending money. The hype behind Apple's products often makes them the "must buy" item of the season.... Kerching
