Cool Leather Case for the Canon S90 or S95 for $10! (DealExtreme)

I've been looking for a case for my S95 for a little while. I found this guy on DealExtreme a little while ago and decided to try it out. I received it last week, and it's great. It's got a vintage/retro feel in brown leather with a snap case/cover that's actually quite impressive for a mere $10. The front cover is held on by three snaps, which you can pop off the sides to take a picture, or what I like most about this case is just leave this cover off altogether and use the camera with just the bottom holster & strap. There is a tripod screw built into the base which secures the camera and then you can go to town. The strap is not the most amazing quality though. If I was going to take a trip with this thing and rough it up I'd probably swap it out for a spare Canon camera strap. I have a cool 80s Rebel one kicking around somewhere. Unfortunately there is some Canon branding on the cover & strap which I wish wasn't on there, but oh well. Just know this is definitely not a genuine Canon product. It looks like you also have the option to get it in black as well, just search for 'Canon S90' case.

DealExtreme: $10.89 Leather Carrying Case for Canon S90 - Brown

Just to clear up, both the Canon S90 & S95 will fit perfectly in this case due to their (practically identical) form factor. I have the S95, but like I said the Canon S90 is similar you should be able to use a case designed for either camera with no problems.


If you aren't familiar with DealExtreme yet, you should be. It's pretty amazing, I'll be posting a little writeup about they kind of things I order from them, which is to say a lot of things. Just keep in mind that anything from there, including this camera case, is coming straight from China, so don't expect it overnight or if you need things in a hurry you can usually forget about it. Typical ship times in my experience is about 2-2.5 weeks, which really isn't bad considering shipping from dealextreme is always free!

Hack, Open & Edit Canon S95 RAW Files Now! (by tricking CameraRaw into thinking it's an S90)

**UPDATE** ACR release candidate 6.3 is available now, so no need to hack your .CR2 Exifdata anymore. The full release should be available soon (I have no reason not to trust the release candidates, they've always been solid in the past) Download Adobe Camera Raw 6.3 (Release Candidate)

Own the new Canon Powershot S95? Me too. Want to start editing the camera's RAW .CR2 files now, while you wait for the official Lightroom & Adobe Camera RAW update to come out that supports it? Well it's easy enough to trick these guys into opening them today, and here's how:

Download & Install ExifTool

On the Mac, Exiftool is a command line tool, but if you don't mess with the terminal, worry not it's as easy as copy+paste & then drag & drop. (ps, don't fear the terminal, it's really not that bad)

After you install Exiftool, launch the Terminal

Then paste this in:

exiftool "-CanonModelID=PowerShot S90" 

Then, drag and drop the file (or files) you want onto the terminal window.

Press enter.

Boom, the changes will happen automatically, and a copy will be made of the original RAW file (adding '_original' to the filename) in the same directory.

LR and ACR will now think it is a RAW file from the Powershot S95 and will now be editable in either.

That's it!

Note: There is more information than anyone should care to ever know available at the ExifTool's page.
