|Canon PowerShot S95 digital camera review : Last year, Canon launched the S90, a camera that represented a new road in Canon’s strategy. A camera which did not have Megapixels as its most important feature, and was even downgraded on paper in terms of hard specifications, but at the same time was advanced in image quality. It was a camera that was received wholeheartedly and was highly praised. The Canon PowerShot S95, successor to the S90, follows the same road that Canon took with the S90. Luckily, the amount of pixels is still the same, ten Megapixels, and the size of the sensor has also remained unchanged. It is a compact camera that again focuses on image quality, which is a good development.
Canon PowerShot S95 video function
Not so much has changed in comparison with the S90. The most important difference can be found in the video function. The Canon S95 supports 720p (1280x720 pixels) video with stereo sound. Additionally, the camera now has a mini-HDMI interface with which a high quality reproduction is achieved in combination with HD televisions. The photos and video clips are saved onto an SD format card with extra support for the new generation of SDXC memory cards. A new High Dynamic Range function has been added, with the possibility of shooting in different image formats as well.
Canon PowerShot S95 vs PowerShot S90
The Canon PowerShot S95’s design has pretty much remained the same as the S90’s. After studying the camera specifications, we can see that the Canon S95 is little bit heavier, but it has also become one millimeter more compact, which is not really worth mentioning anyways. The Canon PowerShot S95 has added small details to a successful existing concept. It is a very logical continuation.
Canon PowerShot S95 review
The Canon PowerShot S95 is not much different from its predecessor. The bright, 3.8x zoom lens has remained and the 3-inch format display with 460.000 dots resolution is also back. The Canon S95’s compact format makes it appear as an automatic, but the camera also offers the possibility of shooting with full manual settings. In short, it is a camera for the beginner photographer, but it also sparks the interest of serious photographers that are looking for a handy little camera on the side.
