5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent...ticks all the right boxes, 1 Nov. 2010
I've been waiting for a camera like this for many, many years. Having worked as a pro, I wanted a pocket camera in which I could gain full control, and with full manual settings on the S95, I have that. I especially love the white balance feature, which can be assigned to the front ring, excellent for indoor and for mood. In fact there are so many features I could harp on about, but the proof was in the test shots I took today, great macro at f2.0 with brilliant colour saturation on plant photos; the camera dealt brilliantly with the extremely harsh contrast scene I found (brilliant high colour temp white sky, with darkened buildings on the bottom 1/3rd & church steeple in the middle), after a few experiments, it came out best on, would you believe, the programmed landscape scene option! Anyway, there is so much to praise, I will therefore only mention the very few gripes. Careful with the flash (which can be reduced by up to 2 stops, Highly recommended that the user should try this!), I've managed to drop the camera twice now when turning the flash off, as it reduces back into the body with a lot of force, I'll get used to it, but the user needs to be wary of this at first. The battery life seems a bit short , but maybe I've just been playing with it a lot. At last, digital has finally caught up to where film was 10 years ago.
