"Canon PowerShot is the best Point and Shoot Camera"5.0 starson by pradike
Pros: Fantastic imagery
Ease of Use
Super Indoor, Low LIght capability
Flexibility of Manual, Automatic, and everything between
Numerous options for settings to fit the photo situation
Cons: Pricey, but when compared to the plastic-case Lumix that is similar...worth it!
Summary: Having used numerous high-end cameras over the years....as well as qulaity DSLR's....I've gotten to the stage where 95% of my photos can be done with a top-shelf point and shoot. I've spent the past 3 months reseraching, viewing, and trying various options....narrowing the final choices to the Canon S95, Lumix LX5, and Nikon P7000.
In the end, its about the photo quality - and the S95 wins that battle. Using other point-by-point comparisons and pros and cons of equal value, the Canon S95 also comes out on top. During the past few weeks, I've put the S95 through a wide range of photo scenarios, and it has totally exceeded my expectations - a winner.
