The Canon PowerShot S95 is an almost ideal general purpose digital camera and an excellent “street” camera for straight shooters. I carried the S95 with me (just about everywhere I went) for two and a half weeks and I was consistently impressed – just like I have been with every “S” series Canon camera I’ve ever used.
The bottom line is that you really can’t do much better than the S95 unless you buy a G11 or a G12 – this snazzy little digicam was clearly designed by photographers for photographers. If I was buying a digital camera today – I would buy an S95.
