Trophy Compact Gets Spit & Polish

Canon PowerShot S95

The Canon PowerShot S90 has a permanent place in my bag. As a compact point-and-shoot, the S90 has not only been a powerhouse compact, but also a great substitute slash justification for not carrying around a DSLR. The new Canon PowerShot S95 ($399) improves on its sibling by keeping all that works (28-105mm ƒ2.0-4.9 lens, macro, low light performance) and adds 720p HD movie capture, improved image stabilization, more manual controls for its awesome control ring, and a slimmer body with coating from the venerable Canon EOS 7D. A replacement for the S90? No, but it’s a worthwhile upgrade for those looking to replace their tired compacts.
