Customer Reviews

This camera has great picture quality.
K. Smith
Relatively easy to use but requires to read the manual to understand what all the functions are.
Henri M. Wintz
I decided the A95 was the best choice after looking seriously at Sony cameras and Fuji ones.

If someone wants to buy a compact digital camera, most of the times it's enough to choose from Canon models.
Canon offers different types of cameras to different people needs.
Let's take a look at them if you don't mind, I will try to give a helping hand for those who just cannot decide.

Basically there are six line of Canon compacts:
1.
The G-series - Pros: fast lens, 4x optical zoom, all manual controls, flip-out LCD, hot shoe, optional converters, RAW mode, microdrive support, long battery life (despite of the lithium type!), professional feeling, great hand-grip
Cons: weighty, big size, lithium batteries (from a point of view), pricey
2.
The Sxx-series - Pros: wider angle then average (28mm to S60/S70), portability, light, RAW mode, microdrive support, full manual controls, elegant look
Cons: fixed LCD, slow lens, PF (CA), lithium battery
3.
The Sxxx-series - Pros: portability (small size), very light, sexy look
Cons: fixed LCD, slow lens, PF (CA), lithium battery, lack of real manual controls
4.
The Axx-series - Pros: long battery life (due to AA's), flip-out LCD, great hand-grip, full manual controls, optional converters, many scene modes for beginners (on A70 and now on A95), cheap
Cons: slow lens, PF (CA)
5.
The Axxx-series - Pros: cheap, uses AA's, portability
Cons: slow lens, PF (CA), no real manual controls
6.
The NEW Sx-IS series - Pros: big zoom, best video, great hand-grip, long battery life (due to AA's), full manual controls
Cons: weighty, slow lens, PF (CA), lack of AF-assist lamp, noisy images

That's it, at least at the date of this quick review.

The A95 is an EXCELLENT follow up to the A80, and offers some very nice improvements. The most noticeable is the jump to 5 megapixels at $100 lower MSRP than the A80 when it came out! Then there is the larger rotating LCD that is now useable in low light, scene modes for those who don't like to tinker with the settings, and the print/share button to make things easier. For those who don't know, scene modes are easy-to-access presets of a combination of manual adjustments, optimized for shooting in different situations such as when you are indoors, at the beach, taking shots of kids, shooting at night, or shooting fireworks, etc. There is also the addition of the Flexi-Zone feature, which lets you choose one of the 9 autofocus spots, so you can focus on non-centered objects! This is usually a feature only found on much higher priced cameras. The camera features full manual controls over shutter speed and aperture, manual focus, saturation, exposure compensation, custom white balance, ISO, metering, and a histogram in playback mode. I know most people think they won't ever use some of these, but when you have an important shot that just isn't coming out, you'll be really glad you have it (or wish you did). For those who don't know, control over shutter speed means you can use a fast shutter speed to capture fast action or you can use a slow shutter to avoid using a flash or for taking shots of night scenery like a city-scape.

The areas where the Canon A75, A85, and A95 really excel at are:

Being fairly small(small price tag too!) for a camera with this many features and having picture quality this good.

I bought this camera for a trip to Yosemite, and it didn't disappoint. This is my second digital camera - my first was an Olympus 2MP that I've had for a few years. The Canon blows it away in features and picture quality.

I like the size of the camera - it's easy to carry and store (like in my wife's handbag), without being too heavy or bulky. I had considered an ELF, but I didn't want the compromises that the sub-compacts make in features and useability. I had also considered a digital SLR, but that would have precluded the use of the wife's handbag as a storage container. I also thought the SLR's were overkill for someone who's a fairly casual amateur photographer. Don't get me wrong, I've been taking pictures for over 40 years and have used some very sophisticated equipment. But, these days, I want something easy to carry and easy to use. If you're serious about photography, by all means go for the big guns.

I won't go into a littany of the Canon A95's features, since others have done a good job of that. Suffice it to say that, except for real photo enthusiasts and professionals, this camera has everything you'll ever need, and more.

I took about 200 pictures and a few movies, and viewed them both digitally and in print (Ofoto). They are, almost without exception, excellent. Being new to the camera, and having forgotten the manual while I was on vacation, I didn't come close to using all of its features. I used the built-in scene modes extensively (easily accessible using the rotating wheel that surrounds the shutter button - nicer than having to navigate menus), and they worked as advertised. Some of the scenery shots of Yosemite are really spectacular, rivaling some of the professional shots I've seen for sale (if I do say so myself).
