DCRP Review: Canon PowerShot S95
4 Star Review  DCResource - Sep 29, 2010

The PowerShot S95 is a nice (but not major) upgrade to the S90 that adds some useful new features. The basics haven't changed; the S95 still has a 10 Megapixel, high sensitivity CCD, fast 3.8X optical zoom lens, and customizable controls of its predecessor. The new features include an improved image stabilization system, useful HDR and shadow/highlight correction options, and a 720p movie mode. The S95 also retains many of the annoyances of the PowerShot S90, which include so-so ergonomic and below average battery life.

Canon PowerShot S95 review at Camera Labs
4.5 Star Review  cameralabs.com - Nov 14, 2010

Canon’s PowerShot S95 may not represent a huge leap forward from its predecessor, but remains an ideal choice for enthusiasts who want a pocket camera without compromising on control and features. Think of it as an ELPH for the more demanding customer. The person who fondly gazes at the attractive bodies of models like Canon’s SD1400 IS, but wishes they had manual control, RAW file support, a big high resolution screen and a fast, bright lens. Written down it sounds like a tall order, but one the S95 delivers on. Fortuitously, its pocketable size also avoids comparisons against the new breed of EVIL compacts with DSLR sensors – something larger models now find themselves up against. But the S95 still faces tough competition from the Panasonic Lumix LX5, so we've made a detailed comparison of features, quality and performance in our full review at Cameralabs to help you choose the right model.

The brand new Canon PowerShot S95 compact camera is the more refined successor of last year's S90 model, additionally offering 720p HD video, Hybrid IS technology and in-camera HDR shooting.

The launch price has also been reduced, making the Canon S95 an even more attractive proposition as a pocketable yet very capable compact. Read our in-depth Canon PowerShot S95 review now.

Awesome camera! Great price and shipping
5 Star Review   By SayCheese on Adorama - Jul 9, 2012   

Great camera! There are a lot of neat features on this camera, like the smile recognition and the wink recognition. Allows for manual operation too! I just wish the hand cord had a fastener on it so it could stay snug on my wrist. My other point and shoot

Good, execpt for small JPEG file
4 Star Review   By member rayfriedman - Feb 18, 2011   

Strengths: Small. Adjustable. Good images.

Weakness: JPEG files produced are too small. HAVE to go through RAW to get detailed files.

Nice feel. Small. Good images. The main problems are 1) the JPEG files are small. There is no option to save as a detailed or "fine" JPEG. To get a high quality pic, you have to go through RAW. 2) to do any adjustments to the exposure, you have to go to "P". I expected that there would be a way to override automatic exposure decisions when you are in automatic, but for the S95 auto is really 100% auto.

Great Little Point and Shoot
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Small Size, Hundreds of Settings and Options, Great Dynamic Range, Easy to Use, Ability to customize settings and modes, Ability to capture RAW images

Weakness: Somewhat difficult to keep track of all the different options, expensive

So far the images taken with this little gem are great. Very fast lens for such a small camera. The customizable Ring is a great feature, as is the ability to take 720P video. Bought this to avoid having to lug around the Canon 20D everywhere. Pictures are nearly as sharp and clear.

S95 - small versatile camera
5 Star Review   By member jozefm - Sep 20, 2010   

Strengths: Small, light and easy to use; with fast lens, very sensitive in low light, flexible with many programmable options, RAW, very good picture quality

Weakness: Expensive

I have it for two weeks. So far I am very happy with it. Its picture quality is excellent for point and shoot camera. It is currently the best point and shoot camera for low light pictures with ISO 12,800. Its picture quality at ISO 12,800 is poor, at 6,400 is fair, and at 3200 is good which is unprecedented for such small camera. It has an HDR option extending the picture dynamic range to show details in dark and bright areas.
