I had been looking for a new camera for a while now and it had to tick a few boxes for me...

1) Had to fit in my pocket - and I don't mean my coat pocket! In summer I live in t-shirt and jeans. That automatically ruled our Prosumer and DSLR's.
2) Had to be something I could whip out in a rush and take a shot without having to thing about too much to do with composition - had to have a good Auto function
3) Had to provide good low-light images
4) Had to have enough functionality and level of manual control that I could get creative, if I wish
5) Had to be inconspicuous
6) Had to offer HD movie recording - stereo mic's was a bonus!
7) Had to be image stabilised

Those were the biggies for me and the S95 manages to do everything so well! I have seen some of the images that come out of such a small camera and they will stand up next to a lot of entry level DSLR's!

Plus, it is so good in low light because Canon have used a slightly oversized sensor but kept it to 10Mp. The fact it is F2.0 wide open helps this as well.

For a take anywhere camera that fitted everything I wanted, it was like Canon purpose built this for me! And they built it well too with some pretty minor tweaks over the S90 that now make it a really great camera, as opposed to just a great one.

The other competitors at this time, such as the Panasonic LX5 do have a few advantages, but to be honest, it's down to personal choice - and I wanted something I don't need to carry in my hand or bag all the time.

Nice going Canon!
