[SOLVED] Canon S110 vs S95

Any one used the Canon powershot S110? / both ? I don't mind spending the extra money on it is that better over the S95.
Which of these 2 do you guys think I should get ? My current camera is Sony H55, either of the 2 should be a decent upgrade over my current one right ?
I would like to buy one of these this month. I won't be buying online.

Also whats up with the availability of these cameras in India ? I went to buy last week, I checked a couple of Canon stores & they didn't have one that time. Other Shops (Croma, Reliance Digital,etc ) , These guys haven't heard about these cams !!!.

Thanks for you replies.

Edit : I decided to go with the S110. Pic on post #16. Thanks.

:rofl: Funny...
Where are you from?

I haven't used these two cameras. Both are good... S95 was discontinued long ago. I don't think you can find it anywhere.
H55 is a travel zoom, while these two are advanced compact with a larger sensor (lacks H55 zoom). You can weigh things based on your requirements. If you are thinking of buying a large sensor compact, consider other cameras as well, if you haven't.

There are wide range of cameras ranging from little under 20k to 60k+

yes S95 is old then came S100 then S110 I think....also S110 may cost too much ....these cams may be good as a backup cams for pro but too costly for general purpose

No, my budget is not 60k+ :p. I've checked out other cameras as well & its between these two.

The s95 is within a good price for general use.
I agree S110 is a bit too much, I just wanted to know if the S110 is worth for that extra price.
Definitely a no from the specifications, Would love to hear from people who have used both.

Thanks for your posts to both of you.

P7700 is not really compact & I also thought about Olympus XZ-1 before.
S95 is for 21500.
Mumbai Yeah. I met 3 newbie sales reps.

^ Okie...

Just it is too old and it has seen two generation after that... And the price is also higher, it was selling much less I think.

mirrorless cameras like epl1 is also worth considering. but it all boils down to what OP wants to shoot n in what conditions.

^ Even though it says it's updated, it's an old post, I think. Most of the cameras stays there for more than a year...

Thanks everyone, I appreciate your time & replies.

yaah it was once selling for 19.5 few months back... consider LX5 too...its also sleek..

Yeah, I've thought about the LX5 as well, but again it is the same question as with the S110. Is it worth the extra 8K ?
Till last week I was 100% sure on the S110 because S95 was not available. But now the more I think the more confused I get.

No, I will not buy a mirrorless at this point. I need it to be pocketable & I'm not really ready to get into lenses for now.

read his review and decide...
If the S100 is available & if it is not within the defective serial no# list Canon announced, that will be the camera I'll buy happily.

The best compact is Sony RX1. Just 3K higher than S110 but totally worth it
I'm sure you mean the RX100 and not the RX1. Do people even buy cameras at the the price of RX1 ?
I'm already stretching my budget to reach to the S110. There's no way I can go any higher.

Thanks to both of you: sujoyp & nac.
Didn't get a chance yet to go out & shoot but here are a couple of comparison shots at home with my first cam the Sony H55 & the new Canon S110.
I know it does not makes much sense to compare the 2 but this was just for fun.

Auto Mode -

Manual Mode- F3.5, 1/30, ISO-3200 , All other settings are the same

Notice how the WB are so different even though both were set to Auto. It was funny how in auto the H55 would focus on Niko's face & say people detected.

Well controlled noise at ISO 3200. I guess you will be getting an opportunity to shoot in this three day long weekend...
