Canon PowerShot S95

 

Canon's new advanced compact is faster and more feature-packed.

Although the S95 is only a small improvement over the already excellent S90, the combination of small improvements do add up to a significantly better camera. Overall performance could still use some improvement, but creative versatility and more...

Slimmer and more sophisticated than ever before, Canon's top-end snapper shoots for the compact crown

The S95 is a pocketable point-and-shoot that delivers pro results

Canon PowerShot S95

 

The Canon PowerShot S95 updates the S90 , one of our favourite cameras of 2009. It occupies the same position at the top of Canon's compact range, theoretically slotting in under the G12. It shares many features of the G12 that will appeal to more...

Manual control and RAW shooting, some fun auto features too, great quality images, plenty of control

Battery life a little short, video is nothing to get excited about

Gripes are few with the Canon PowerShot S95, but following up on the excellent S90, that’s to be expected. We’ve seen the improvement of the video offering, but it certainly isn’t the most sophisticated video shooting compact out there.

Canon PowerShot S95 review

 

Is the S95 yet another Canon compact for serious photographers?

Small ; Good quality images ; Good build quality

Lack of selectable autofocus points ; No ISO button ; No movie button

The Canon Powershot S95 was released a little over a year after its predecessor, the Canon S90, was announced.

Canon PowerShot S95 review

 

Canon PowerShot S90 shook up the premium compact camera segment when it launched last year, offering excellent image quality in a very sleek body. It narrowly missed out against the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3, but with the S95 Canon is hoping to build on...

Building on the success of the S90, the S95’s handling has been improved and there are some useful new features. Image quality is also right up there with the bulkier LX5, but it does lose some flexibility as a result.

Canon PowerShot S95 review

 

The Canon PowerShot SX1 IS may just be the best featured point and shoot camera you can buy.

It's hard not to like the Canon PowerShot S95. It feels solidly built and its manual features are easy to use for the most part. We love the focus tracking feature and the overall swiftness of the camera — it can take photos very quickly — and it has...

Canon PowerShot S95 review

 

There are not too many reasons to upgrade from a PowerShot S90 to the PowerShot S95, as many of the differences are refinements rather than outright changes.However, intuitive manual controls using the improved lens control ring in the later model will...

Canon Powershot S95

 

The Canon Powershot S95 features a 1/1.63inch CCD sensor, this is larger than the majority of sensors, and should enable lower noise. Other useful features include optical image stabilisation, and an f/2.0 lens at the wide end of the 3.8x optical zoom...
