Hello, I wanted to make this thread to compare my experience with others. How is the sound quality when you record videos in your Canon cameras ? So far , for me : Canon SD700 (or Ixus 800) : slight hiss, but very bearable. Canon S95 : almost silent (faint hiss maybe). Canon G16 : loud hiss, very annoying. Canon G7X : almost silent++, better than S95. No hiss at all. The best of the 4. No zooming or clicking sound either. I still don't understand why the G16 sound is so bad. You could...

Hi, I know it is an old camera but... One year ago, my canon S95 broke down. It shows a blank/black screen when taking pictures or video. I can see all info on the screen and I can see the pictures in the card, but I get no image on the screen, apart from the white letter with all the info. I took it to be repaired but it was more expensive to repair than to get a new one... I was ebaying and I saw some guys selling the lens for a relatively cheap price (in fact any component). Do you think...

Hi all! I was hoping somebody could help me... I have purchased a second hand s95 for my daughters birthday and I have found a strange problem. If I place a little pressure on the bottom of the camera where the battery compartment is, the camera loses power. The exact spot is where the hinge is of the battery compartment near where the tripod attaches. Has anybody else heard of this kind of issue? Is there any easy hack/mod/fix that can be applied? It seems to be a connection issue. Cheers :)

Hi All! My powershot S95 has been the perfect camera for me. Great photos, great functions, perfect size. Unfortunately something started to rattle in the camera and now some photos aren't coming out focused properly. It's been a good 4 years, so I guess it's probably better off getting a new one instead of paying for a repair. The main reason I need a new camera is because I'm going on holiday, and really need a pocket sized camera for the holiday photos. And since I like to play around with...

Hi all. I find the auto-focus on this camera to be woeful. Just been away on a trip and experienced the same issues I have now on several other occasions. When taking shots with a lot of sky (whether clear or cloudy or shots in low light where there is not a vivid contrasting object to focus on) the auto focus just gives up the ghost. At least with my old s95 it used to go to infinity and allow a shot to be taken.  And even when there is good contrast, it takes its time.  I prefer to point...

I do a fair amount of travelling so I take photos of exteriors (i.e., cities, buildings, etc) and interiors (inside churches, museums, etc.).

How does the autofocus mechanism works in this camera? I mean should I just place my subject in center and wait for blue square then re-compose the shot while holding the shutter button halfway down or is it better to lock focus? p.s Does this camera use autofocus in terms of distance to object or contrast ? Thanks ---The Nemesis-

Years ago I used what I think was the original GR digital and loved it. Small, simple and easy to tweak shots. Then about a year ago I bought a new GR but stopped using it after only a few weeks after not being able to get good shots. I had become used to the convenience of a Canon S95 and was happy its snaps - not great image quality, but decent. I hardly used the zoom - preferring wide angle, and now I want better image quality - so I’ve decided to pick up the GR again. I’m still trying to...

I need to replace my SD card for my Canon s95. Two good values are these (A-zon): Transcend 32 GB High Speed 10 UHS Flash Memory Card TS32GSDU1E (up to 45 MB/s, 300x)by Transcend and Transcend 32 GB Class 10 SDHC Flash Memory Card (TS32GSDHC10E)by Transcend The first is a couple of dollars more than the second. I imagine the second is plenty fine for now, but down the road I might want a faster card.  The question is whether my current camera can handle the first card (class 1) or not....

I've always been careful with my PowerShots, but I've read a while back where people were reporting lens error codes from their compacts and the cameras needed to be serviced. Obviously, if one were to drop their PowerShot or bang it in a fit of rage, I wouldn't be surprised if something broke. But what about something benign and reasonable like having it accidentally turn on while in a case or pocket? Does it detect something in the way and retract immediately or does it force extend? Can...
