Excerpt: I've had this camera for over a year & have been incredibly satisfied with it. By this time I normally would have got rid of the camera for another more upgraded version, but I've been so pleased with it that I haven't felt the need. It is pretty much perfect as a point & shoot in my opinion. It is fast & discreet & you can really produce fine images with the RAW photos.
Excerpt: I really like this camrea. IT does great outdoor photos but there are a couple of minor flaws when indoors. When indoors it sometimes takes very yellowy pictures. It also is very slow at taking a picture it seems like a long time from when you hold down the butten and the photo is actually taken. I also tend to get lots of blurry pictures. Again great pictures outdoors but we are looking for a new camera for our indoor shots!
Excerpt: Imho the best that can be actually EDC-d and can ride on your belt to be there whenever you need it. As normally thats a cellphone for everyone its miles better. On the other hand its a compact. A good one but compact. No shallow dof, above iso800 its useless Crappy f5.6 on tele end and so on... I am not really satisfied with it but its not its fault. I hate compacts.
Cons: Having traded up from a 790IS that could focus as close as an inch, discovering that the S95 could only focus as close as 5" was a disappointment. It's just not going to be useable for certain types of macro shots (e.g., insects).
Pros: Good in low light; lots of features; can be taken from fully automatic to very programmable. I'm assuming that when I am able to spend more time learning it, the focusing issues will be minimized.
Cons: Video can't deal with bass at all - a problem that I had experienced in much earlier models but that I didn't have in my other recent Canons. Why is it back? I wanted ONE camera I could use for most situations, but the video problem means I can't do video
Excerpt: This was our second camera, sort of a back up. It ended up being our primary use camera because it was SO easy to just keep in in my purse, and suddenly it was at the aquarium with us when we wanted that pic, or wherever we were. Technically I think our larger camera took slightly better pictures, (literally barely noticeable, it was just better in dark conditions) but what is the point in getting better pics if we never bother to haul it around with us?!

Pros: I love the lens ring which is used as a aperture control in A mode and a zoom focus ring in Art Filter Mode. I enjoy the Miniature Feature the most of all the filters. The colors are rich and the noise is not bad for the size of the sensor.
Cons: I would like Auto Bracketing available in all Modes. I would love this camera if it had a wide 24mm equiv on the zoom lens. A thin neck strap would be a big help. The price was a bit high.
