Canon PowerShot S95 Digital Camera Review

With Canon's HS system, 10 megapixel sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor, the PowerShot S95 digital camera promises astounding photo quality, HD video recording and more. Kevin Pereira and Carrie Keagan review this $400 camera for its array of features.

What You Need To Know

  • This is one of the sleekest digital compact cameras we've seen.
  • It feels really light in your hand and is barely over an inch thick.
  • It easily slides in your pocket since the only thing that protrudes is the lens.
  • It's easy to use as any other digital camera.
  • If you're familiar with Canon cameras, you'll be able to use this one with no problem.
  • All the buttons are self explanatory and the rotational pad is nice.
  • One thing they added is the control ring, which you can assign different functions to, like focus, exposure, zoom, white balance, etc.
  • It's useful but might be a bit small to get your fingers around.
  • This also features new image stabilization technology, HD video recording and a bunch of cool photo effects.
  • All these features work pretty well for the most part.
  • The hybrid image stabilization uses both an accelerometer and angular sensor to eliminate blur.
  • HD video is a nice addition, especially because it looks really good.
  • In low light, it doesn't have much grain and in normal light, the photos look incredibly sharp.
  • Photo effects like fish-eye, miniature, and old-timey are fun to use.
  • We know this kind of stuff is easily done in Photoshop, but it's nice to see how it looks on the camera.
  • You can almost always rely on Canon to have great photo quality, and this one is pretty good.
  • Normal light photos look fantastic and these are some of the most vibrant colors we've seen from a compact camera.
  • Normal problems like soft focus and blur is very rare.
  • Low light photos are only okay; with the flash, colors can look almost too saturated and pictures have some digital noise.
  • The quality may improve slightly if you use the dedicated light more.


  • $400
