Canon PowerShot A95 Review

Announced in August 2004, the PowerShot A95 replaces the hugely popular A80 at the top of Canon's entry-level range. Although it shares many features with the A80, the new model sports several significant improvements (including some also found on the A85), and in fact offers a feature set that compares well with considerably more expensive models, such as last year's PowerShot G5. The main changes are the sensor resolution (5MP) and a larger (1.8 inch) and considerably higher resolution (118,000 pixel) swing out LCD screen. Other improvements include an enhanced movie mode and a wider assortment of subject-based shooting modes. Let's have a quick look at the main selling points:

  • 5.0 million effective pixels
  • 3x (38-114mm equiv.) F2.8-4.9 zoom lens
  • 1.8 inch 'vari angle' (swing and tilt) LCD
  • DIGIC processor
  • 9 point AiAF plus flexizone focus
  • 14 exposure modes
  • Print/Share button & direct print
  • Autofocus illuminator
  • Part metal body
