Looks like the one of the best point and shoots is about to get better, but with a slight tweak to the case....will it still fit into the S90 cases or will we have to wait for new ones

Seems like the major improvement is the addition of the HD which is of no value to me. As to the drop-in fit, no, I doubt it. The case has been modified to incorporate stereo and I notice on the Canon USA site that they list the new housing as the DC-38 vs the DC-35 for the S90.

I will be purchasing a spare S90 as soon as possible now.

That's great news. The only weakness I felt the S90 had was a lack of HD video. It is a great little camera (although not cheap).

Ken Rockwell reports that the S95 is a little smaller in size. except thickness. Maybe it will still in fit current Fisheye housing?

he posted this data:

3.93 x 2.30 x 1.16 in. (99.8 x 58.4 x 29.5mm), rated.

The S90 was rated at 3.94 x 2.30 x 1.22 inches (100.0 x 58.4 x 30.9mm).

The S 95 will probably fit in the Fisheye housing , but the back buttons seems to be lower .
So I'm afraid it will not be possible to use the S 95 in the S90 housing .
I had the same problem between the Nikon D 80 and the Nikon D 90 :D
Anyway the S 90 is a wonderfull camera and I never do vidéo ..So ..
Better like Crawdad buy another S 90 before it become impossible to find one .
