Conclusion: Considering there really isn’t a lot to complain about with the S95, we may as well scrap the bottom of the barrel a little. Images tend to underexposure a little when there was a large highlight source in the composition such as the sky.
Conclusion: Canon PowerShot S95 camera review The S90’s quality, predecessor to the Canon S95 camera that we discussed here, was already at a high level. There were a few features, such as the position of the zoom button, which prevented smooth control of the camera.
Summary: The expense may be a stumbling block for some, but the Canon Powershot S95 takes some absolutely stunning images, and the full manual control lens ring is especially useful. For those who’ll use it to its full capacity the Canon S95 will impress.
Pros: Full manual controls, excellent sharpness and tone, HD video
Cons: Control dial responsiveness, price, occasional cast on white balance
Summary: So with the PowerShot S95 you're still getting a sensible 10 Megapixel sensor, brighter than average 28-105mm lens and detailed 3in screen packed into a compact body with a high degree of manual control and support for RAW files.
Pros: Pocketable body with great controls and customisation., 3.8x zoom with bright f2.0 aperture at 28mm., Great quality 3in / 460k screen., Full manual control, RAW files and 720p HD movies.
Cons: Slow continuous shooting at full resolution., Can't optically zoom while filming., Panasonic Lumix LX5 better-featured., Quality beaten by mirror-less 'EVIL' compacts.
Canon PowerShot S95 review: small and packed with manual features

15 April 2011
Summary: If you want a small camera that has good manual features and can capture crisp, vibrant photos, the Canon PowerShot S95 is perfect. We absolutely fell in love with it during our tests and used it every chance we got.
Pros: Small size, physical exposure controls, very good image clarity and colours
Cons: Shutter speed a little too restrictive, lens ring could be smoother to operate
Excerpt: The S95 looks almost identical to the S90, but it’s slightly slimmer and also a bit heavier. Canon has used a new tactile coating on the body to improve handling in the absence of a hand grip and helps to make it feel more secure in your hands.
Conclusion: Gripes are few with the Canon PowerShot S95, but following up on the excellent S90, that’s to be expected. We’ve seen the improvement of the video offering, but it certainly isn’t the most sophisticated video shooting compact out there.
Pros: Manual control and RAW shooting, some fun auto features too, great quality images, plenty of control
Cons: Battery life a little short, video is nothing to get excited about
