Canon PowerShot S95
A 2011 high-end compact.
By Digital Admin, Last updated on: 6/19/2014

The S95 is one of the most desirable high-end compacts as of early 2011. This kind of camera is powerful enough for photography enthusiasts but small enough for a pocket and easy for anyone to use. In particular, anyone who frequently shoots in dim settings -- concerts, nightclubs, indoor functions in general -- should really give this a look if a dSLR is out of the question (or as a complement to a dSLR system). The image quality matches that of the G12, so it's a matter of whether you want a smaller size (S95) or more robust manual control (G12). There really are no bad options in the advanced compact space right now, but even as the competition heats up with new models, the S95 is one of the best out there.
