Canon S95 VS SX260HS?
Mar 3, 2013

Planning to tour Washington DC and I need a super-compact pocket able camera to shoot with that I can carry everywhere all day long--also one that won't break the bank.

I will most likely be trying to buy used.

I honestly don't know what kind of conditions I will be experiencing as I have never been to DC or shot photos in a city environment (I live out in the country :)) so maybe you can help me out.  I really like the fast F/2.0 lens on the S95 but it only has a 3.4x zoom range. Whereas the SX260 has a super long 20x optical zoom but no RAW. Also worth noting for a urban environment, the SX260 has a 25mm lens, and the S95 has a 28mm.
