So I've run into a slight dilemma; My assumption that an SL2 would be small enough to carry anywhere with a Sigma 17-50 attached was clearly subjective. In reality, I'm still carrying 1.3kg in my hand. I need a camera compact enough to be held in nothing larger than a fanny pack. I'm partial to Canon, and I've narrowed my requirements down to a Canon S series, since I don't want to spend more than $200 on this effort. My main requirement is for the camera to be able to shoot in RAW, anything...

In the realm of older, 'knock-about' cameras (cheap to acquire, not too distressing to have damaged, stolen, or lost), can anyone give me an informed comparison of the low-light capabilities and effective resolutions of the SX230 HS (which I've had for years) and the S95 (which I'm considering buying for a third / fourth camera)? For low-light performance, I realize that the SX230 HS has a CMOS sensor instead of the S95's CCD sensor, but the S95's sensor is larger (1/1.7-inch versus the...

Hi folks, My wife's s95 has finally come to the end of its life. She likes the convenience of the point and shoot. Her desire for good image quality has also increased. My question is: what to get to replace the S95? One potential answers are the G7X or G9X series. For those who have used these, why did you choose one over the other? The most obvious useful feature is that is pocketable and all in one solution. The slight downside I see / suspect is the one inch sensor..... Alternatively, the...

Hi there, I'm a dive instructor, dive guide, snorkeling guide. I'm filming and taking photos underwater with various cameras for more than a decade now. Part of my income is to sell photos and videos to clients. As I'm selling on the boat I need proper, sellable results out of camera.  Last year I switched to the Sony A6000. While I do love this camera, it drives me crazy.  It seems to be impossible to manually adjust the white balance under water. The camera just gives me an error. I...

I have had various point and shoot and have some reasonable images and about 6 years ago bought a 20d and 3 lenses to learn / take better shots. I found I liked the quality of shot, but began to hate the bulk. I then bought a Canon S95 which I love. One of the biggest features is the live view, which I find very helpful. Now, the 20d hasn't been out of the bag now for 3 years, so it's time to move it on. It's all just too big and clunky. The S95 was handy on a recent trip, but I feel I am...

Hi all, recently my S95 has started showing a black streak (see pic below) on pictures taken at the longer zoom setting. I guess it is something inside the lens, either some extraneous body or a piece of broken assembly. I tried shaking the camera as violently as I dared but it has not moved. Any clues on what I can do to get rid of it (not photoshopping it away, just have clean pics) ? Things to note: It does not show in the lower half of the zoom range The more I zoom, the more it moves...

I've been doing ample research about a good point and shoot for a beginner to take with me on my travels. Obviously, as a beginner, I prefer something user-friendly that will help me learn the basics, but I'm willing to dig deep in the manual (and interwebs) to learn. I would also like something sturdy and compact that won't fail me halfway through my trip... I've narrowed down my options to the LX5 or a Powershot S series. I was also considering the Olympus XZ-1, but I've heard that it does...

The top left image: how do I get back to a normal way of editing this top left picture?  That little pencil and crossed-out circle appear above the image, which is from a Canon S95.  When I open it up in DPP for processing, it measures 350 dpi and way under an inch on height and width.  I didn't have this problem until I set the camera to Raw + jpeg for my wife.  Usually, I have it set to Raw.  How do I fix this? Thanks! --My state of confusion has turned into a circle of confusion.

Powershot S95. CHDK firmware update, but once in CHDK, make sure bootable doesn't work, so the camera displays Memory Card Locked upon removal, lock and reboot with card. Wish stick worked in Mac OSX El Capitan. Thanks.

I am replacing a Canon s95 which has been great but I want something faster (both in terms of frame speed and aperture) and better video. I had the use of a LX100 for a little while in January and fell in love with the handling and control, the viewfinder, the manual focus and low light performance. I didn't keep it because I wasn't completely sure and found I missed the extra 30mm or so of zoom. I tend to shoot raw and had been warned off in the past about using digital zoom, so never...
