Canon introduces the top-of-the-line digital camera PowerShot S95 as an upgrade to the S90. The ultra-slim, ultra-intelligent S95 is loaded with all a serious photographer's must-haves, including a bright f/2.0 Wide-Angle Lens, RAW shooting, a number of shooting modes and effects for ultimate creativity, and professional-style control ring for intuitive manual control. On-board Canon’s HS System, a combination of a high-sensitivity 10.0 Megapixel CCD sensor and powerful DIGIC 4 processor, provides exceptional low light performance. The new S95 is also upgraded with Canon's Hybrid IS for blur-free shooting even close-up, and capability of 720p HD video recording with stereo sound. Performance, flexibility and portability merged, now it’s time to step up to PowerShot S95.

  • newegg Canon HS SYSTEM The Canon PowerShot S95 employs the Canon HS SYSTEM by combining a high-sensitivity 10.0 Megapixel CCD sensor and Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor to deliver spectacular images with minimal noise. With a new maximum setting of ISO 12,800, the S95 notably reduces blur and camera shake for the ultimate in sharpness and clarity.
  • newegg 720P HD Shooting and Playback via HDMI The Canon PowerShot S95 is capable of recording video in stunning high definition (1280 x 720 pixels) with stereo sound. The camera also makes it easy to enjoy HD videos (and still photos) on your HDTV with a mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition TV monitor.
  • newegg Large, Bright f/2.0 Aperture The Canon PowerShot S95 sports an f/2.0 aperture, perfect for creating enticing portraits, by drawing attention to the face and blurring the background with its impressively shallow depth-of-field. The Macro setting lets you get even closer. Additionally, the large aperture lets you capture more nuances in low light shooting by using more of the available light. You'll be ready for anything with a lens aperture larger than even many professional sizes.
  • newegg Control Ring for Intuitive Operation More intuitive and quicker than the usual 2-button control, the Canon PowerShot S95's control ring lets you adjust Focus, Exposure, ISO, Step Zoom, or White Balance more precisely than ever.
  • newegg 3.8x Optical Zoom with Optical IS & 28mm Wide-Angle Lens The Canon PowerShot S95 features Canon's precision 28mm Wide-Angle 3.8x Optical Zoom Lens that allows you to shoot most scenes from wide-angle to telephoto. When it's time to take a closer look, the Canon Optical Image Stabilizer helps minimize camera shake and reveal almost every detail.
  • newegg Canon Hybrid IS By employing both an angular sensor and an accelerometer, Canon's highly advanced Hybrid IS corrects camera shake from two sources (the blur caused by the angle of the camera and the "shift blur" that happens when your subject moves parallel to the camera), delivering sharp, blur-free images even when you zoom in close to your subject.

5 out of 5 eggsCanon S95

Pros: I smile every time I see the pictures I take. They are always excellent. I would recommend this camera to anyone. The low light ability is amazing. Best camera I have ever owned.

Cons: Maybe a little difficult to learn all of it's capabilities.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera

Pros: -Shoots great sharp pictures for a point and shoot
-Control ring is great for manually adjusting settings
-Rechargeable Li-Ion battery
-Optical Image Stabilization (A must have)

Cons: 1280x720 video is in 24fps, and not 30fps. Not a real big con though, the 640x320 is in 30fps. If you want great video then a camcorder would do the job better.

Other Thoughts: Ordered this for my dad, and was easy for him to use while still having a lot of functionality (fireworks setting, changing focus, aperture, etc.)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This camera is really awesome. Its very small, high res, and has lots of great features. I hardly ever have to recharge the battery. It provides enough manual control to take difficult shots. A great "small" camera for someone who knows a lot about photography. Its also extreamly rugged. I've dropped mine badly several times and its suffered no damage.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsbest P&S - High Quality

Pros: -Great Quality Photos
-F2.0 low light photography
-Okay noise at iso800 and bearable in iso1600
-control ring x2, one for aperture in AP mode and the other for exposure and it is customizable
-miniaturization mode = fun
-not bad video
-good IS

Cons: -not as much modes and photographic effects available then others
-back control ring can accidentally push and mess up exposure (not as big of an issue as S90)
-not much change from S90
-not spectacular zoom range

Other Thoughts: This is a great camera that compliments my DSLR in places where I can't bring a DSLR. It fits in your pocket, but it is thicker then most P&S. The quality of it is great! Much better then any other P&S in the market!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera

Pros: This is my third Canon point and shoot (I also own the first generation Rebel Digital SLR).
Purchased the S95 right before going to Europe and I didn't get a chance to test it before leaving. What a pleasant surprise. this small size camera is awesome! it takes pictures under all light conditions. It is very FAST to lock the AF and also to shoot. I took some great spontaneous shots and the camera responded superbly.
The quality of the photos in different situations, city, countryside, night shots and flash is great. The flash produces almost no red eye (I set it up with red eye reduction ON).
We took a mix of people and landscape photos and they were all superb. The AF locks into peoples faces very quickly and it is a great capability when taking group photos.
The ring control around the lens is a very nice feature and I am quickly getting used to this.
I have not spent anytime reading the ~200 pages manual (downloadable from the Canon web site) yet, but very easy to use.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: 1)Easy to use (my spouse who in general doesn't like to take pictures now loves this camera and just took it with her last week on a trip to Argentina)
2)Fast to focus and fast to take the pictures
3)Great light metering system, take great pictures even when there is uneven lighting.
4)Buy the SDHC card Class 10 to take advantage of the speed and also for faster transfer to your PC. During my trip I was transferring the photos to my iPad via the adapter sold by Apple. it was so easy and so fast. We could then look at the photos in larger size on the iPad.

5 out of 5 eggscanon S95 digital camera

Pros: Wonderful. Currently owns elph sd 1000 and sd 650 and sd 600. This camera is worth the money. The photos are drop eaed gorgeous. Unfortunately my daughter, who lives abroad, permanently 'borrowed' this camera for her travels and now I am waiting to have enough spare cash to order another S 95 for myself! She frequently sends me night skyline shots of Hong Kong and one recently of the fishing nets in Cochin, India. It is uncomplicated and easy to use for an amateur

Cons: pricey but worth every penny in the long one.
