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.
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...
Summary: This is the best Canon compact I have had in about 3 years. Picture quality is awesome, and low light performance rocks. I will write more details later, but for now I am frustrated. I pulled the camera out of the case today to find the lens partially extended and the dreaded "Lens Error.
Summary: This is my 5th Canon (G2, S30, A530, XSi) and is supposedly Canon's best ever P&S. I bought this for its compactness, low light performance, and image quality. In these regards I would say it is excellent!
Summary: I had the Canon S90 when it first came out and loved loved loved it so I was excited to see this newest updated version. I bought the Canon S95 recently on Amazon and I am not disappointed! The picture quality is the same, excellent, and the body is even better.
Great pocket low light performer, with some problems and lagging behind in some areas.

Summary: Length:: 0:30 Mins SUMMARY: A star of pocket-sized, high image quality camera, S95 does have its problems. The software is a bit buggy as it crashes, lags, and even macro button not doing what it is supposed to do.
Good camera. However, probably not a better value than the S90

Summary: I have a T2i, G11, S90, and now the S95. I really love the size of the camera and the fact it is pocket-able. It can take pics on the same level as the G11. I do miss the hot shoe but not the size of the G11. I do have more misfires than the G11, and certainly more than the T2i.
Summary: Great little camera. Excellent free delivery in two working days! I wanted a compact with some manual controls to keep handy when I dont have my digital SLR kit with me. I have only had it a week and I am very pleased with it so far EXCEPT FOR THE LOW BATTERY LIFE.
Summary: At £200 this is a much better deal than it once was but mine turned up with a mark on the lens so I returned it. However, had it been OK I wasn't convinced I was keeping it. Functionally it ticks all the boxes, and from all the reviews on here and elsewhere it clearly can take good photographs but...
Summary: A really nice compact camera that takes good pictures in a variety of lighting situations. Like others I had a lens error message 3 months in, but unfortunately despite an unremarkable recovery, this left the camera unable to focus reliably.
