(UPDATE) Canon releases the S90. A new Panasonic LX3 competitor?

http://www.dpreview.com/news/0908/09081907canons90.asp

Canon S90 Key Features

  • Lens Control Ring
  • 10 million pixels sensor
  • RAW shooting
  • Fast f/2.0-4.9 maximum aperture range
  • Lens covering the classic 28-105mm range
  • Dual Anti-Noise System (high sensitivity sensor and Digic 4 noise reduction)
  • 3.0 inch PureColor II LCD
  • Optical Image Stabilization
  • Smarter Scene Detection
  • Low Light mode
  • DIGIC 4 image processor
  • HD output

Amazon has it available for preorder only at $449.95. That’s almost $200 cheaper than the black Panasonic LX3.

The LX3 has a far wider angle (24mm vs 28mm)  but to me it seems the S90 could be a real LX3 competitor. Someone close to Panasonic told me today that we will not see any LX3 successor this year. Should I believe him? We will soon know it!

UPDATE:

Which camera is better? Lots of discussios here:

Zeiss-Leica-Samsung-Nikon rumors summary

The huge MicroFourThirds tecnology success will shortly move other competitors to release cameras with the same or a similar concept.

Nikonrumors found a new Nikon patent for a mirrorless camera system. Zeiss will probably not make any digital rangefinder camera. Latest report are saying that Samsung delayed their first NX camera release. Chasseur d’Image magazine predicts a Leica M9 in September. There are no reliable reports about possible Canon and Sony moves but I suspect they are working on mirrorless cameras.

The only thing we know is that Olympus and Panasonic both will soon release new MicroFourThirds cameras ;)

noisy cameras crazy speculations ;)

The very good noisy camera website speculates with the idea that Panasonic and Olympus may want to combine to get Pentax! Of course this sounds crazy to me but may you want to read it for yourself…
