The pocket camera for the serious photographer

 



HS System with high-sensitivity 10.0 MP CCD sensor
The ability to shoot at higher ISO speeds and maintain excellent image quality is a key feature of the PowerShot S95. The HS System is a powerful combination of high-sensitivity sensor coupled with the latest DIGIC 4 image processor for outstanding image quality in a wide variety of lighting conditions, including low light.

F/2.0 28 mm wide, 3.8x zoom lens with Hybrid Image Stabilizer
The fast f/2.0 lens allows the user to shoot without a tripod or flash in darker conditions. The optical Image Stabilizer corrects camera shake up to 4-stops, while Hybrid IS gives sharper results in macro scenes.

Lens Control Ring, Full Manual and RAW
The lens Control Ring allows quick access to manual adjustments. Various functions can be controlled by the ring such as zoom, aperture, shutter speed, focusing, ISO or exposure compensation. RAW capture is also possible for post-processing in the supplied Digital Photo Professional software.

7.5 cm (3.0”) PureColor II G LCD
A bright and clear LCD with a tempered glass layer improves strength and ensures high visibility even when shooting in bright conditions.

HD Movies, HDMI
HD movies are now made possible in 720p at 24fps. The user can record HD movies with stereo sound and play back via the HDMI terminal.

High Dynamic Range mode
In high contrast scenes, a conventional digital camera can struggle to capture detail in shadows and highlights. When mounted on a tripod the High Dynamic Range shooting mode takes multiple exposures of the same scene and combines them in-camera to capture a high contrast scene in detail.

Smart Auto
Smart Auto uses Scene Detection Technology to detect the appropriate scene from a possible 28, to obtain the best result. Smart Flash Exposure intelligently controls flash power and usage to ensure natural photographs.

Multi-Aspect Shooting
The user can shoot in a range of formats including 3:2, 1:1, 16:9 and 4:5. This allows perfect composition at the time of shooting without the need to post-process.

Optional Waterproof Case
Keep your PowerShot S95 safe and dry with the optional waterproof case, which allows you to protect your camera and take it underwater down to depths of up to 40 m.
