Review: Canon PowerShot S95

Published 04:29 am

One of the nicest things about a camera is being able to take pictures instantly, so the user can capture the moment. Little Jimmy's first step is not much fun if the image doesn't lock till he's sitting on the floor. Canon has also done away with the dreaded finger across the lens pictures, by moving things around on the camera body. If you have ever owned a Canon, you know the quality that is put into manufacturing. That quality carried over to the compact, digital Canon PowerShot S95.

What's better, and some firsts

The Canon PowerShot S95 is shaped a bit differently from the S90. Consumers spoke, and Canon listened. The multi-control dial now has a louder click. This helps avoid unwanted setting changes. The positions of the ring function and on/off buttons have been moved, making it easier to operate the controls. This is the first Canon compact to feature Canon's 'Hybrid IS' system, which compensates for movement from the camera or holder.Canon is quite adamant in its explanation of this feature that shooting, even close up, is virtually blur-free.

Technology just keeps improving our ability to record pictures for posterity. The fast PowerShot S95 takes 3 different exposures of the same scene. After analyzing them quickly, the images are combined into one image in the camera, presenting a picture with more depth, color, and feeling. Continuous shooting captures up to 3.9 shots per second. The Canon PowerShot S95's 'Smart' popup flash exposure controls flash levels according to shooting conditions. Both features are highly desirable when taking pictures of the kids and pets.

More features to entice the market

Red eye reduction is one of the best features of this lightweight camera. Dpreview emphasizes the new Tracking AF mode allows the operator to select objects from the center of the frame, then track them if they move, or the frame is recomposed. Thanks to the HS system, Canon PowerShot S95 gives low light performance that gives an extended ISO 320 to ISO 12800 range.

The 28mm wide-angle lens with 3.8x optical zoom has caused some complaint; users want a broader range.

The Canon PowerShot S95 features a 720 p HD 24fps video recording capability, with stereo sound. It is simple to view on your HDTV, using the remote control to balance the movie you created.

My Fuji is a delightful camera, easy to use, with all the bells and whistles I could ever want. When I am in the market for another compact digital camera, I will definitely consider returning to the Canon line, and purchasing the Canon PowerShot S95 lightweight, compact digital camera.
