    New S95

    Last weekend I met up with a forum member to show him some Sony gear. He brought along his S95 and I was doomed. Instead of just going out and buying yet another camera I did a trade for the S95 (I gave up the LX5). LX5 is a good camera but I wasn't really bonding with it. The camera arrived yesterday and I spent some time last night going over the settings. I still have a bunch to learn on the camera but this AM I took it to the farmers market. Nothing special just getting familiar with the controls and looking at the files/colors. These are all from jpegs at the standard settings.

    Re: New S95

    Wow Terry, you sure do have the gear!
    Another tech camera lens? Which one?
    I am still going over making the Alpa to Arca R series switch; still think it out.

    Wow, great shots Terry! I also like Dragos' leaves.

    I got my S95 about three weeks ago and I have been very impressed with it in most situations. As a companion to 5D I like it better than the Panasonic G1 I had last winter.

    Maybe we should start a S95 picture thread? I have some I'd like to share.

    Re: New S95

    I have an s90 I'm very pleased with too. Surprising detail and dynamic range from a small sensor. Apart from the easily-knocked rear dial, is there any other reason to switch to the s95?

    This one doesn't count against me because I traded for it so some gear left the house. Actually, I just sold down a ton of gear so I feel pretty good right now.

    Yes, on the tech camera lenses...I think prices are going up enough in January that I'm accelerating things a little bit.

    For a small "point and shoot" it is surprisingly well thought out with interesting features.

    I never tried the S90, if the firmware is similar I guess I would say no. One the reviews I read did detail out all of the differences and I think it was minor enough. Funny the one thing ergonomically that sounds weird is that I almost wish the shutter release were on the mode dial. My finger always wants to be there.

    I agree, but I'm beginning to get use to its position now.

    Thank you for starting the picture thread! I'll go and post some photos now. Hope others will do too.
