Excerpt: I have had the PowerShot A95 camera for a few years. I never use a case, and this camera is the kind you can you can just throw in your bag and carry everywhere. It is durable, which is something I really need in a camera. I like how the view screen can adjust to different angles, so I can get a shot of a animal or baby on the ground without having to sit down.
Excerpt: This is one of my favorite camera's i had out of all 4. It takes good photo's and video's. But i find the setting on the camera to be a bit confusing. It has where you can change the effects of how you want your photo taken. Also easy to hook up to the computer to upload. My camera also holds alot of photo and video with out me having to delete any to make room for more. To bad that i have to get it fix, because it got a pressure crack from it being in my book bag.
Summary: I got this camera in 2005 and took it to many trips. It still takes better/cleaner pictures in low ISO than today's 10+ MP cameras due to its large sensor and low pixel density. Of course it does not have the high ISO capability nor image stabilization, etc. Recently the CCD was having some problems and Canon repaired free of charge regardless of warranty status (search the web for Canon CCD service advisory). They also fixed the zoom lever for free too.
Summary: Nice little camera, does everything I'm capable of, even underwater photos with case, cool. Haven't used it much so I don't know if it sucks batteries or not. Really like the CCV screen and the way it pulls out and turns for the odd picture. Downloaded the PDF Manual for it, would suggest two sided printing as it's huge like a thick book, lots of reading on all the functions.
Summary: I had one like this that we broke in Hawaii. When we bought another Canon camera we wanted a second point and shoot as a backup. We bought this us one used because we have filters and lenses already for this camera.Two of the features I like are the adjustable viewing screen and all the manual shooting modes for those times you want to tweak the shot.
Summary: Actually this is my second A95. My first one which I bought 2004 did not disappoint me. This camera is so good especially when I use it underwater with its canon underwater casing. It's like a semi dslr camera that lets you adjust your own settings. Check the link below of the photo I took underwater. [...
Summary: The A95 and many other cameras of that era were made with defective Sony CCDs. Main symptom is distorted LCD and distorted or black photos and is more common in high heat situations. Canon will fix free of charge, regardless of warranty status. For more info, go to: www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?

Summary: The Camera is an excellent choice for a novice , its auto mode takes photos splendidly with lot of details and crisp. The color contrast of every snap are very appealing. If you have used any of the canon cameras the navigations is very much the same. Its does'nt take much time before you start utilizing most of the features. The body of the camera is sturdy and reliable. Had a couple of mishaps but it continued to work fine.
