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: 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.
Canon Powershot A95: Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
14 September 2009
Summary: This camera is awesome. I upgraded from a Fuji camera and it was well worth the money. The Canon A95 uses 4 AA batteries, but it eats through normal alkalines way too fast. The swivel screen is a major plus, it's 1.8" compared to 1.5" from the Canon A70. The screen is also higher resolution than the A70. I have used the camera for 6 weeks and printed about 90 pictures so far.
Summary: Bought this 5 years ago as my first digital camera and am still using the camera. It is 5 mega pixel, 3X optical zoom with 1.8 inch swivel LCD (110k pixel resolution). It uses compact flash cards and AA batteries. I particularly like the fact that it uses AA batteries as these can be found virtually anywhere in the world if you run out of them. Camera has a number of automatic settings which takes great picture in most of the situations.
Pros: Swivel LCD, manual controls, AA Batteries
Cons: Heavy, uses CF cards which can be easily damaged if one is not careful, high noise at ISO 200 & 400
Excerpt: "A great camera, very adaptable. You can do loads with it. It has an endless number of functions and setting to keep you busy. Pictures are of a very high quality and by adjusting the setting can be taken in a number of different settings. I have brought a wide angle and telephoto lens for it which both work great unless you need to need to use a flash or AF beam. The size of the lens means that the flash and AF beam is blocked. Under normal lighting ...
Pros: Love the rotating screen, very useful
Cons: Bit heavy, but you do get a load of features for it . No battery level indicator
Summary: I cannot add much to the detailed technical reviews of the real enthusiasts so this review is aimed at non-techies like me that have been doing their homework and want a non-techy's views on the negatives that other reviewers have raised about this model. This is not meant to be a criticism of the A95, far from it: if you have looked across the internet you will know that every 5 star rated digital camera in this price range has certain compromises, but it can be...
Excerpt: "The Canon Powershot A95 Digital Camera is the successor of the Powershot A80 and was released in August of 2004. It has 5 megapixels and an impressive 1.8 inch LCD monitor which rotates to suit your every photographic need. As with many Canon entry level phones, the A95 has pretty poor background noise reduction and, therefore, inadequate movie mode. It does have good colour resolution, though, and with the usual price tag of around £150, it's ...
