Click to take a QTVR tour of the A95
The 5.0 Megapixel CCD sensor enables the A95 to provide superb image quality, suitable for high quality photo prints up to 13x19-inches. The 21 shooting modes, ranging from fully Auto to Manual, offer users total control for complete creativity, or can simplify things to ensure great looking photos in tricky situations. Along with all the fully manual, Program and Aperture/Shutter speed priority modes expected in an advanced digital camera, the A95 includes a custom mode for storing preferred camera settings. A special scene mode includes 8 settings for Foliage, Snow, Beach, Fireworks, Underwater, Kids & Pets and Night Snapshot. Movie clips with audio can be recorded up to 3 minutes at 320x240 or 160x120 and up to 30 seconds at 640x480, you can then playback and even edit movies all in the camera. VGA quality movies can now be recorded.
The A95 features Canon's Print/Share button, which illuminates when a successful connection is made between the camera's USB port and a PictBridge compatible printer or Windows PC. Pushing the button when lit will initiate a print of the currently displayed image (based on the default PictBridge or Direct Printer settings of the printer) or an automatic transfer of images to the PC . When connected to a Canon compact photo printer, the camera/printer combination allows for 'movie-prints' (sequential frames of a movie clip printed as thumbnails on a single card) and photo IDs (passport style ID photographs).
Software supplied includes browsing and printing software ZoomBrowser EX (Windows) and ImageBrowser (Mac). Other software includes PhotoStitch, plus photo and movie manipulation software ArcSoft PhotoImpression and VideoImpression. Also a free membership is included to Canon's online CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, with 100 Megabytes of free storage space for online album storing and sharing. Users can upload favorite images and now movies to the site and then direct friends and family to individually secure online 'albums'.
