Of all Canon's new launches today, it is perhaps the PowerShot S90 that excites us the most.

Bringing together the sort of manual control found on the new G11, with dimensions closer to a typical compact, it should appeal to those looking to get a little more from their pocket camera.

Lurking under that matte black exterior is the same sensor as you'll find in the G11, again with the DIGIC 4 processor, and all Canon's usual technologies.

The lens offers you an impressive F2.0 max aperture, which, when combined with image stabilisation, means it’s a contender for better low light shooting.

Sitting around the bottom of that 28-105mm (35mm equiv.) lens is the new Control Ring, allowing easy change of settings, with a "Ring Func." Button on the top letting you program it.

Yours for £449, it will be hitting shelves in September.
