For the past 10 years or something I've kept a little point and shoot Canon lying around. It's not the most sophisticated look but for a crisp, pleasure-to-use, take-with-me-everywhere kinda thing, it's just perfect. Every few years I upgrade and it looks like I'll be doing the same come September. The S95 update combines Canon's DIGIC 4 image processing, 10-megapixel high-sensitivity CCD sensor, and wide f/2.0 lens to enhance image quality and reduce noise at high ISO levels without resorting to a flash. Very cool. They've also included a new high dynamic range (HDR) mode, 720p video recording, and mini HDMI for when you wanna connect to that flatscreen. A 3-inch LCD, Miniature, Fisheye, Poster, and Super Vivid creative modes, 10x optical zoom, optical image stabilization, and a brand new 240fps super slow motion mode sound like just the right amount of good and fun I'll need for the next couple summers.
