Rather than continue to drag this issue off topic as discussed HERE I've decided to see if anyone would like to continue this discussion. Rather than repost everything please click the HERElink to read the discussion and then carry on here please.
This was my statement that started the conversation:
My biggest gripe about RAW on the s90 is Canon decided if I want to use their program modes I have to accept their jpg. I really would like to have a raw+jpg option in all modes. Too bad I didn't research a bit more before purchasing. I shoot aperture priority 95% of the time with my dslr and wanted to use the s90 as more of a p & s with the addition of raw support but that is not going to be possible
