Image Quality That’s Better Than Ever.
The PowerShot S95 employs the Canon HS SYSTEM by combining a powerful 10.0 Megapixel CCD sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 4 Image Processor. Thanks to this technological advancement, the S95 is dramatically more sensitive than cameras with identical megapixel counts, and delivers spectacular images with minimal noise. Increased sensitivity demands a higher ISO speed, and the PowerShot S95 delivers with a new maximum setting of ISO 12,800. Blur and camera shake are notably reduced for the ultimate in sharpness and clarity.

Easy HD Shooting and HD Playback.
The PowerShot S95 lets you record video in beautiful high definition (1280 x 720 pixels). 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. You’ll enjoy the HD experience with no degradation of image or audio in the signal, plus the ability to display up to 130 still images at once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent image quality, full controls and pocketable, September 9, 2010

This review is from: Canon PowerShot S95 10 MP Digital Camera with 3.8x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3.0-Inch inch LCD (Electronics)
If you’re looking for a pocketable camera that has reasonably high quality images, lets you control aperture, speed and focus and shoot in RAW format, this is it. I bought mine as an upgrade from a previous small but versatile camera, a Canon Powershot S70.

The Powershot S95 was introduced in August 2010 as a slight upgrade to the S90, which was widely praised for its image quality and excellent interface but criticized for being hard to hold (“like a bar of soap in the shower”) and for having a control dial that turned too easily. The S95 fixes both problems and adds a couple of other features in a package that fits in the pocket of your jeans (if they’re not super tight). The case is metal, and although there are no finger grips on the body, it’s not slippery at all. It feels like it’s covered with super-fine sandpaper (like 1000 or 1500 grit, for those you who know what that feels like).

The second major complaint about the S-90 was that the… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Great camera and upgrade to superb S90, September 5, 2010

This review is from: Canon PowerShot S95 10 MP Digital Camera with 3.8x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3.0-Inch inch LCD (Electronics)
I own both the S90 and S95 (G10 and G11 also, as well as F-1 and numerous Nikons including the D90).
Hands down, I took more photos on a daily basis with the S90 since I took it EVERYWHERE.
As they say, the absolute best camera is the one you have when you need to take a photograph.
The picture quality of the S90 is superb and the S95 is at least as good.
Often the biggest limiter to picture quality is the skill of the photographer.
Time spent mastering a particular camera is well spent and paper specs often can mislead.
Discussing subtle nuances over comparable cameras is often more academic than practical.
The S95 gives the serious photographer tremendous flexibility from full auto to full manual and superb features that are packaged in a truly pocketable high performing camera that is arguably best in class.

So what has improved:

Body finish…more tactile and grippy
Selection wheel on back has click… Read more

This review is from: Canon PowerShot S95 10 MP Digital Camera with 3.8x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 3.0-Inch inch LCD (Electronics)
I spent two or three months doing tons of research to replace my old Canon SD870. Finally a month ago I decided to buy the S90 despite the fact that it didn’t have 720 HD video, it was a one-year old model, and many reviewers disliked the looseness of the control dial. My S90 arrived in the middle of August and over the course of many days I learned how to use all the functions and was very pleased with the results.

And then on August 19 Canon announced the upcoming release of the Canon S95. I immediately returned my S90 and anxiously awaited the arrival of its successor. Earlier today it was delivered and I’ve been using it all day.

I must say that I wanted to love the S90, but the smoothness of the body annoyed me. I figured I’d just have to get used to the slipperiness. But now that I have the S95 in my hands, I can’t believe what a difference the matte finish makes regarding secure handling. There’s no way you can appreciate the difference if you haven’t… Read more

We review Canon’s PowerShot S95 point-and-shoot camera updates the critically acclaimed S90 with 720p video and more.
By David Elrich – Sep 13, 2010 – Editorial review – Digital Trends
Pros:Excellent low-light shooter, Better than usual Canon point-and-shoot photos, Extensive photo adjustments via control dials, Excellent LCD screen …Cons: Button placement takes getting used to, Slow fps; not a camera for action shooters, Low battery life Introduction Last year, Canon introduced the S90, one of the best point-and-shoots we’ve ever tested. Rather than go crazy with megapixels, the camera featured a 10-megapixel imaging sensor with larger (rather than more) pixels and a very fast f/2.0 lens. The result was a camera that took extremely high-quality stills, even in low light. It wasn’t the perfect camera, because it’s rather slow like almost all point-and-shoots, but it was definitely good enough for an Editor’s Choice designation. Now Canon has enhanced the S90, unveiling the S95 at a lower list price. Let’s see if this one is a slam-dunk Editor’s Choice as well. Features and Design �Minimalist� is the best way to describe the Canon PowerShot S95. Practically all black with a muted finish, the only thing that pops is the white Canon logo on the front and a few decals on various rear controls. It’s city-slick, unlike the zillions of silver-bodied digicams available. Very compact with rounded edges, the S95 is barely a fraction smaller and lighter than its predecessor. It measures 3.93 inches wide, 2.3 tall and 1.16 deep, tipping the scales at 8 ounces fully loaded. The front has the same 3.8x zoom as the S90, with a nice 28-105mm focal range. Of course we’d like more… Read full review

Canon PowerShot S95 review
By Elias Plastiras, PCWorld.idg.com.au – Sep 21, 2010 – Editorial review – PC Advisor
The Canon PowerShot S95 is a compact digital camera that’s perfect for travellers or even photography enthusiasts who want a small camera with manual controls.
It’s very small, yet it’s designed to allow you to change the exposure almost as quickly as you could with a digital SLR. If you don’t want to change the exposure settings manually, the Canon PowerShot S95 has an auto mode and plenty of scene modes to help you get the most out of it straight away.
The Canon PowerShot S95 is the type of compact camera you buy when you absolutely must have something that will be very easy to carry around, yet also be capable of capturing very good quality images at a moment’s notice. We think it’s perfect to take on holiday or on a work trip as it can be used effectively in all kinds of lighting situations.
Canon PowerShot S95: Specifications
It has a 10-megapixel CCD sensor, but at 1/1.7in, it’s slightly bigger than the CCD sensor in a typical compact camera such as the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, which has a 1/2.3in sensor. The Canon PowerShot S95 has the same sensor size as other advanced compact cameras such as Samsung’s EX1, but it’s a smidgin smaller than the 1/1.63in sensor that can be found in Panasonic’s LUMIX DMC-LX3 and LX5. The slightly larger sensor allows more light to be captured, which means that overall the camera can produce more vibrant images than a typical compact.
Sitting in front of the sensor is a 28-105mm zoom lens with an aperture of f/2.0, which is nice and wide for… Read full review

DCRP Review: Canon PowerShot S95
By Jeff Keller – Sep 30, 2010 – Editorial review – DCResource.com
Pros: Very good photo quality, with a full stop advantage over typical compact cameras at high sensitivities; Fast F2.0-4.9, 28 – 105 mm zoom lens; New and improved “hybrid” optical image stabilization; High resolution 3-inch LCD with outstanding outdoor and low light visibility; Fast start-up time; Full manual controls, including RAW support; Smart Auto mode picks one of 28 scene modes for you;
Handy HDR, shadow, and dynamic range correction feature; Lots of customizable stuff: control ring and shortcut button, self-timer, My Menu, custom spot on mode dial; Cool face, smile, and wink self-timers; Records 720p24 video with stereo sound; Optional underwater case; HDMI output
Cons: Redeye a problem — some highlight clipping; Videos are a bit choppy due to 24 fps frame rate — optical zoom cannot be used while recording a movie; Ergonomic annoyances: ring function / power buttons easy to confuse, small zoom controller / shutter release button, flash takes up finger space when raised; Below average battery life; No optical viewfinder; Full manual on CD-ROM;
No memory card included — can’t access memory card slot while using a tripod
The Canon PowerShot S90 was already an impressive camera, and the S95 is a nice upgrade that adds some useful new features. The basics haven’t changed; the S95 has the same 10 Megapixel, high sensitivity CCD, fast 3.8X optical zoom lens, and customizable controls of its predecessor. New features include an improved image stabilization system,… Read full review

Review: Canon PowerShot S95
By Cliff Smith – Oct 7, 2010 – Editorial review – TrustedReviews
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 importantly image quality, especially in low light, are as good as it currently gets. Best Advanced Compact Digital Camera In nature it is competition that drives the process of evolution. As species compete for limited resources they evolve over time to become better adapted to the needs of their environment. The same evolutionary process operates in the world of digital cameras. Manufacturers compete for the resource of your spending money, and the evolutionary result is ever more sophisticated cameras, with better performance, better image quality and more advanced features. There are few better examples of this than the long-running rivalry between Canon and Panasonic in the specialised environment of advanced enthusiast’s compact cameras. Canon S95 quarter view Last year saw the re-launch of Canon’s advanced PowerShot S-series in the shape of the S90, an advanced compact featuring the same 10-megapixel sensor as Canon’s flagship at the time, the PowerShot G11. The S90 was Canon’s response to the success of Panasonic’s superb Lumix LX3, itself a successor to 2006’s LX1, which had been introduced to compete with the S90’s predecessor, Canon’s PowerShot S80, launched in 2005. These competitions can get complicated. Panasonic has… Read full review
