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: This is my first digital camera. In the early '70's I started with a fully manual Pentax K1000 35mm camera. Upon deciding to move up to a digital camera, I researched many brands, styles and models looking for just the camera to fit my wants, needs and pocketbook.
Summary: Canon's A95 is another mixed bag from Canon. It's main goal is to try to be a G series camera for 300.00. In this regard it falls short in both speed and sharpness, but not by much. As with all P&S cameras of any price, the A95 poses quite a few obstacles to the shooter.
Summary: Ok a brief intro and then onto pro's and cons: For the price, this is an amazing camera. I have been studying photography for a while now and was quite the newbie when I originally purchased the A95.
Summary: I have had this camera for about three months now and have taken a variety of shots and used all of the different settings and features that come packed in it. There are some good things and bad things about it, but overall I am satisfied with what it has to offer and the price tag that comes along...
Excellent camera but approaching end of life cycle.

Summary: A95 is an excellent choice for a 5MP digital camera on it own. But Canon has fully redesigned the Powershot A series to make it lighter (uses only 2 AA batteries now), smaller and with 4x optical zoom in A510/A520. Its a tough choice between A520 and A95 now. Pro's, 1. Very good image quality. 2.
Summary: I chose between the A95 and the new Sony DSC-T1 and decided on the Canon because I'd had good luck with their equipment in the past (SLRs and 1st gen digicams). Also I wanted to keep the cost down.
Summary: This canon is a decent point-and-shoot digital camera. Its size is great you can pretty easily, stuff it in a pocket. Now the price of this bad boy is getting up there about $350 at the time of this review. If you need a point-and-shoot only look into the A85 for about a hundred less.
Summary: After doing a lot of research I choose the Canon A95. This is the first digital camera I've owned, although I've used other digital cameras in the past. It was purchased for a three-week trip through France and Italy. I used two different memory cards during the trip to take roughly 800 shots.
