Canon PowerShot A95 Review
The A95 bears a close family resemblance to the rest of the A series, and is externally almost identical to the A80 - the only significant change being the replacement of the A80's 1.5-inch screen with a higher resolution 1.8-inch LCD, and addition of a Print/Share button. Like the A80, the body is constructed for the most part from metal (the end panels are high grade plastic), giving the camera a solid, rugged feel. The styling is functional rather than super-stylish, although compared to the PowerShot G5 the A95 is very compact and almost pocketable.
In your hand
First impressions of the A95 are that this is a very solid camera indeed - the majority of the body is encased in lightweight metal, and the weight (around 335g fully loaded) just enough to feel stable and balanced in the hand. The grip - a little shallow for my liking - is complimented on the rear of the camera by a textured area where your thumb sits. The large shutter release and zoom lever are well placed for single-handed shooting, though I found the weight of the A95 meant it felt a lot safer - and steadier - when supported by both hands. You cannot fault Canon when it comes to the build quality of the A95; it does not feel in any way like a budget camera, and what it lacks in sex appeal it makes up for in fit and finish.
