Flash malfunction

MP, Amazon
14 October 2012
  • Summary: I made the mistake of ordering this model although I had read about the flash problems on the Internet. When the unit is turned on, the flash pops up and it gives an error message: "Wrong flash position. Restart the camera" and the flash does not function anymore. I can still take photos without flash. If I pop down the flash and try to turn it on using the dial on the back, it gives the same error message. FOr me it is useless now.

A great camera for the price

MistaBernie, Overclock

  • Excerpt: I decided not too long ago that I was interested in purchasing a quality point and shoot so I wouldn't have to lug my DSLR gear around if I wanted to take photos while out and about. After some research (and finding a great pre-Xmas sale on Amazon) I pulled the trigger on the Canon S95.

Canon S95 : Overpriced Lemon

John Podgorski, Amazon
2 July 2011
  • Summary: I have been a loyal Canon camera owner for about 35 years, until I purchased the Canon S95. Within a month, the flash unit jammed. In for repair, returned a month later. A few weeks later, the zoom jammed. In for repair, returned a month later. A month later, the flash unit jammed again. Back for repairs again. I still do not have it returned to me. This camera has been in the shop more than I have had it in my hands.... 3 months for repairs, 2 months of use.

Manufacturing or design flaw????????

Mark, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had several small "pocket" size Canon cameras and have enjoyed them as something quick and convenient as an alternate to my DSLRs. I was very interested in the fact that the Canon s95 had the ability to produce "raw" files and shoot in low light with a relatively fast lens. The day I purchased the s95, I was able to test it in some very low light conditions, shooting both stills and video with stereo sound. The results were very very impressive.

The most overhyped camera of 2010

T. Bohn, Amazon
12 March 2011
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this camera. I wanted a high quality, rangefinder like, digital camera to carry as an alternative to my DSLR. I picked this over the LX5 mostly because it was somewhat smaller and the many people carried it in their pants pocket. Frankly unless you have baggy clothes I did not find this to be a workable option(too thick and the lens would catch in the edge of my jeans pocket). I carried it in a Lowepro belt case(like my previous P&Ss).

  • Excerpt: Все его недостатки выплыли тут же как снимки загрузили на компьютер,снимали четырьмя камерами примерно с одних ракурсов и одних условиях. два фотоаппарата были дешевые мыльницы до 4 тысяч рублей, одна была зеркалка. После этого захотелось его выбросить, из 400 снимков 398 ушло в шлак, разочарование было ужасное. Все снимки были темные, смазанные, мыльные. RAW не помогает, а фотошоп только усугубляет.
  • Pros: размер, реально камера не большая.
  • Cons: ужасные снимки, все без исключения. Все заявленные плюсы убиваются тупой электроникой. Цена завышена в разы. Камера сделана именно для тех кто выбирает через интернет на бумаге выглядит очень все пристойно, большая матрица, светосильный объектив, громкое имя, в жизни просто маркетинговый ход.

Objectif trop fragile

Fredelyon, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: L'objectif de cet appareil est bien trop fragile. Après un an et demi d'utilisation, le moteur a laché. La garantie n'étant que de 1 an, impossible de faire prendre en charge les réparations par Canon malgré ma demande. C'est inadmissible pour cette gamme de produit et cette marque. Je déconseulle fortement l'achat d'un compact Canon. Je me tourne plutot vers des marques plus fiables pour ce format.
