Pho­toStitch merges a se­ries of over­lap­ping photos into a sin­gle pa­naromic im­age and Dig­i­tal Photo Pro­fes­sional is a photo edit­ing soft­ware for RAW im­ages.

Cam­era Win­dow makes it eas­ier to im­port im­ages to the com­puter and ZoomBrowser EX helps man­age and print im­ages.

How­ever, the S95 is not per­fect as it has a num­ber of mi­nor flaws.

The pop-up flash is lo­cated where most peo­ple would hold or rest their fin­gers to snap photos.

This can be a lit­tle an­noy­ing es­pe­cially if you don’t ex­pect the flash to pop up.

Also, the S95 does not have any built-in mem­ory. This is not re­ally a big deal but you will have to rely on ex­ter­nal mem­ory cards to store photos.

The S95 sup­ports many mem­ory card for­mats in­clud­ing pop­u­lar ones like SD and MMC, so it’s easy to get af­ford­able cards.

The review unit came with a 1GB SD card which is suf­fi­cient for stor­ing photos.

If you are look­ing to store videos, we rec­om­mend get­ting at least a 4GB SD card or big­ger.

Con­clu­sion

The Canon powerShot S95 is a great com­pact cam­era for ad­vanced users. The con­trol ring is great for ac­cess­ing var­i­ous fea­tures, the cam­era shoots very well in low-light con­di­tions, and there are lots of nice ef­fects to add to pic­tures and videos.

At RM1,549 the price may be a lit­tle steep for some but the cam­era has a lot of fea­tures to jus­tify the high price. Over­all, Canon powerShot S95 is a great cam­era for shoot­ing photos and HD videos.

Pros: Works great in low-light con­di­tions; great for shoot­ing pic­tures and videos.

Cons: No in­ter­nal mem­ory; pricey.

AT YOuR fIN­GER­TIPS: The di­als and but­tons give ac­cess to the var­i­ous shoot­ing modes and other fea­tures of the cam­era.
