Summary: I bought this camera for a trip to Yosemite, and it didn't disappoint. This is my second digital camera - my first was an Olympus 2MP that I've had for a few years. The Canon blows it away in features and picture quality.

Summary: I won't get into the specs of the Canon A95 as you can find that directly on the product page. I frequent photo forums as digital photography is my hobby and I wanted to be sure that anyone who is looking to buy the Canon A95 in the near future knew that the NEW MODELS (Canon A610/A620)are debuting...

Summary: Here are my thoughts, point-by-point: - 5.0 megapixels of Canon quality. Canon's reputation for high-quality images is well-deserved. You may find less expensive 5.0 megapixel cameras out there, but if you get a Canon, you'll know where the extra money went.
Summary: At mid-$200's this is an excellent value. I've had the camera for about a week. I'm a professional photographer and own several professional digital Fuji bodies. I needed a good point and shoot to carry with me for casual family shooting.
Summary: This camera is great. This camera has a lot of manual options to help you develop your photography skills. Definatley get a case and some rechargeable batteries for it. The camera is a little thick, but that works out well for me since I have big hands.
