Canon Powershot S95

The Canon Powershot S95 is one of the most compact cameras available with RAW support and a larger than normal sensor. Recently it’s been replaced by the Canon Powershot S100, which to all intents and purpose is a better camera, however it’s introduction has meant the now “aged” Canon Powershot S95 is available for around £229, making it great value for money and well worth looking at.

The Canon Powershot S95 features a 1/1.63inch CCD sensor, this is larger than the majority of sensors, and should enable lower noise. Other useful features include optical image stabilisation, and an f/2.0 lens at the wide end of the 3.8x optical zoom lens.
