Listed below are some of the rivals of the Canon PowerShot S95.
The new Canon PowerShot S90 compact camera offers a lot of DSLR functionality in a pocketable format. Support for the RAW format, full range of manual shooting modes, and a fast f/2.0 lens should grab any keen photographer's attention, especially as the Canon S90 can easily slip inside a shirt pocket. This seemingly winning combination of size and features doesn't come cheap though - £449.00 / €519.00 / $429.99 is an awful lot to ask for what is after all still a camera with a tiny image sensor. Gavin Stoker sizes up the Canon PowerShot S90 in our latest expert review...
The PowerShot G11 is the latest version of Canon's compact camera range for prosumers and professionals, offering a DSLR experience in a pocketable body. Interestingly Canon have reduced the number of megapixels on the G11 in a bid to improve image quality at higher ISO speeds, and they've responded to customer feedback by re-introducing the vari-angle LCD that was missing on the previous G10 model. With a price-tag of £569.00 / €659.00 / $499.99, the Canon PowerShot G11 is one of the most expensive digital compact cameras that money can buy - Gavin Stoker finds out if it's also one of the best...
The Casio EX-FS10 is a new super-slim, super-fast compact digital camera. Measuring just 16.4mm deep and capable of taking 30 six megapixel images in one second, the EXFS10 is much more than just another run-of-the-mill pocket digicam. The 9 megapixel Casio FS10 has a 2.5 inch LCD screen and 3x optical zoom lens and can shoot both 720p HD and 1000fps super-slow-motion movies. Retailing for $349.99 / £299.99 and available in blue, gray, red and white, find out if the Casio EX-FS10 is all speed and no substance by reading our expert review.
The Fujifilm Finepix F200EXR is potentially one of the most revolutionary cameras of 2009. It features Fujifilm's innocuous sounding EXR technology, which rather cleverly turns the Fuji F200 into three cameras in one. The first EXR mode shoots a high-res 12 megapixel picture, the second takes a 6 megapixel photo with less noise, and the third combines two 6 megapixel images taken at different exposures to capture more dynamic range. Does Fujifilm's brave attempt to concentrate on image quality rather than more megapixels pay off? Carry on reading our detailed review to find out...
The GR Digital III is the latest version of Ricoh's pocket camera for prosumer photographers. With a fixed 28mm wide-angle lens, high-sensitivity 10 megapixel sensor, 3 inch LCD screen and optional optical viewfinder, the Ricoh GR Digital III is certainly a serious camera. Mark Goldstein finds out if the GR Digital III can justify its equally serious price-tag of £529 / $699.
The Samsung EX1 (also known as the Samsung TL500) is a new pocket camera for serious photographers, sporting a bright f/1.8, 3x zoom lens, sensible 10 megapixel CCD sensor and a swivelling 3 inch AMOLED screen. RAW shooting, ISO 80-3200, image stabilisation and full manual control complete the EX1's main attractions. Read our Samsung EX1 review to find out if it hits the mark.
