Canon PowerShot S95
Canon PowerShot S95 digital camera review : Last year, Canon launched the PowerShot S90, a digital camera that represented a new road in Canonís strategy. A camera which did not have Megapixels as its most important feature, and was even downgraded on paper in terms of hard specifications, but at the same time was advanced in image quality. It was a camera that was received wholeheartedly and was highly praised. The Canon PowerShot S95, successor to the S90, follows the same road that Canon took with the S90. Luckily, the amount of pixels is still the same, ten Megapixels, and the size of the sensor has also remained unchanged. It is a compact camera that again focuses on image quality, which is a good development.

Not so much has changed in comparison with the S90. The most important difference can be found in the video function. The Canon PowerShot S95 digital camera supports 720p (1280x720 pixels) video with stereo sound. Additionally, the camera now has a mini-HDMI interface with which a high quality reproduction is achieved in combination with HD televisions. The photos and video clips are saved onto an SD format card with extra support for the new generation of SDXC memory cards. A new High Dynamic Range function has been added, with the possibility of shooting in different image formats as well.

The Canon PowerShot S95ís zoom button has changed and moved. In my opinion, the Canon PowerShot S95ís zoom button is positioned more logically and at the same time offers more room for the right thumb. This was a bit inconvenient in the S90, so that the thumb often changed the settings unintentionally. Zooming in with the Canon PowerShot S95 is great and fairly fast. The 28-105 range is fine for all-round photography and the brightness of f/2.0-4.9 is good on average for diverse subjects. Still, I had rather seen that Canon had taken the step to a wider angle, like in the Panasonic LX5. This competitor offers a 24-90mm range and maintains am aperture range of f/2.0 to f/3.3. This gives just a bit more room to play with metering and range for the enthusiastic photographer. Perhaps this is for a next generation of Canon PowerShot S-cameras?
