Excellent...ticks all the right boxes,
This review is from: Canon PowerShot S95 Digital Camera (High Sensitivity 10 Megapixel, 3.8x Zoom, 3.0 inch LCD Screen) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
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.

You mention that the flash retracts with some force can you clarify whether it is powered in or has to be manually pushed in?
Also, how do you find its low-light peerformance?

I'm not the original poster, but the flash is powered, and I've found the low-light performance excellent compared to other compacts - most reviewers seem to agree on this point.
