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: 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.
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. Will shut down automatically. Please restart camera." Otherwise known as a E18 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! But for its price I would expect something that is top of the line on most aspect which I found out not true. What I don't like and wish the Canon Guy take note (most serious come first): 1.
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. The menu system is also extremely convoluted as it is an overgrowth of the same old powershot menu since 10 years ago--the structure should have been completely revised rather than layered with hidden tag-ons.
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. I have not had any issues or problems with it.
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. However, I am disappointed in the video. I bought the S95 for the HD video. The G11 takes great video (albeit Standard Definition).
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 as for "good handling"?
Summary: Canon PowerShot S95 Digital Camera (High Sensitivity 10 Megapixel, 3.8x Zoom, 3.0 inch LCD Screen) 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. It managed only 72 shots on the first charge (just five with flash and the rest in daylight).
