Canon PowerShot S95 reviewed by PhotographyBLOG

Canon’s latest enthusiast’s compact, the PowerShot S95, successor to the succesful PowerShot S90, has been reviewed by PhotographyBLOG. The S95, which is rather an upgrade than a successor to the S90, sports largely the same features as its predecessor, with some minor improvements here and there. Chief among these are an integrated HDR mode, multi-aspect-ratio support (meaning you can now switch between 4:3, 3:2 and 16:9 aspects without compromising the actual field-of-view) and a 720p HD movie mode.

PhotographyBLOG judge the S95 positively in comparison to the S90, stating that “[t]he Canon PowerShot S95 addresses virtually all of the issues that detracted from its predecessor – most notably the lack of HD video and sky-high price – whilst further improving the handling and customisation.”

While they do compare the S95’s body and its features side-by-side to the S90, a side-by-side comparison of the image quality in terms of resolution, texture and noise would have been interesting as well.
