    Oh, completely off-topic, but I was wondering what you think of your Canon S95, like pros and cons and such? I was really close to getting it after Christmas, but read that it doesn’t have a great battery life and was turned off by that. I’ve been looking at compact cameras lots lately and I’m still waffling between this and a Lumix LX5, which is quite similar.

  3. well, i don’t know anything about the lumix lx5, and obviously the canon s95 is nowhere near the quality of a DSLR, which you probably realize, but as far as ease of use with regard to the manual controls, it is really really great. adjusting shutter speed and aperture is a cinch and so it’s a nice thing to tuck into my small purse to document outings and such. i mean, that’s the real advantage of it, right? that it’s small. i really liked my fujifilm finepix and that had pretty easy to use manual controls too, and took superior photos, but was large like a fake DSLR, so it’s not the same.

    as far as battery life goes, i have not had any complaints. it doesn’t seem to drain any faster than any other digital camera that i’ve had. i absolutely never ever use the flash, so perhaps that helps?

  4. Thanks, Kristen! The Lumix LX5 is a compact camera like the S95. There’s lots of comparisons between them online and I believe the main difference is that the LX5’s lens is f/1.8, which makes it very tempting. The S95 is on sale right now, which is making me wonder if I should get it. My dSLR is failing and I would like a smaller camera to tote around everywhere. Anyway, thanks again… [*still thinking about it*]!
