The compact-body Canon PowerShot S95, successor to the popular PowerShot S90 launched in October 2009, features the HS System, which combines a low-noise, high-sensitivity 10-megapixel CCD sensor and Canon’s high-performance DIGIC 4 image processor to realize exceptional imaging results with minimal blur and reduced noise even when shooting in low-light conditions without using a flash or tripod. The technology allows users to retain the ambiance of low-light settings, such as night scenes or when indoors, without the sometimes unwanted effects that can occur in flash photography. In addition, a revised noise-reduction technology algorithm delivers improved resolution quality during high-sensitivity shooting.
