i would like to know how many kinds shapes exists.
i am using the anatomic shape now but i feel that it is quite a stretch for my fingers to grab the brake levers when i am in the drops(i might have short fingers?), by the way i am using campy and itm anatomic bars.

what would u think is a good handlebar for smaller hands? where i can easily reach for the brakelevers when in the drops.

any comments on deda shallow bars?

Take a look at the Poco by Salsa. They have the smallest drop and shortest reach that i could find. I got them in 44 width, they feel real good for my small hands. I am 5'5".

The 3T Morphe also a small reach. I read about them on this site:http://simon.trinhall.cam.ac.uk/bike/bodge.html

Excel Sports sells them.

Good Luck
