I am one of those who do not believe that one must have a DSLR in order to be able to take good pictures. A compact digital camera that can easily fit in my pocket is good enough for me. It is not because I can’t afford to buy a DSLR, it is just that I’d rather buy a very powerful laptop than buy a DSLR (I don’t make my living out of photography, I am not a photographer; I make my living out of the internet). But I like taking pictures, capturing moments, that is why I like digital cameras. There’s one baby that I would like to buy, it’s the Canon PowerShot S95 digital camera. Here are the reasons why I want this camera:
10.0 Megapixel sensor combined with the DIGIC 4 Image Processor create Canon’s HS SYSTEM for improved low light performance and better image quality.
Shoot beautiful 720p HD video in stereo sound and play back on an HDTV via the HDMI output.
A bright f/2.0 lens, great for shooting portrait photography in low light conditions or using a shallow depth-of-field for great images with beautiful soft backgrounds.
A control ring for intuitive manual control, built for the way the serious photographer has always accessed exposure control.
Full range of shooting and recording modes including RAW + JPEG for the ultimate creative control.
A 3.8x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer, plus a 28mm Wide-Angle Lens gets you close to your subjects as well as capture more in your frame.
Utilizes Canon’s Hybrid IS to compensate for angular and shift camera shake during close-up shooting.
If the above doesn’t convince you, here’s a video from DigitalRev.com that speaks tons about the Canon PowerShot S95 digital camera.
