Photographer’s Guide to the Canon PowerShot S95 explains all operations, features, menus, and controls of the PowerShot S95 camera in clear language, providing guidance not only about how to accomplish things with the camera, but when and why to use certain features.
The book is 256 pages long, and its more than 170 color photographs illustrate the camera’s controls and menus, with examples of the types of photographs that can be taken using the creative settings of the camera, including the My Colors settings, which let the photographer alter the color processing of images; the Scene mode, with settings that are optimized for various subjects, including landscapes, portraits, and underwater shots; and special features such as the Smart Shutter and Miniature Effect options.
In addition, the guide introduces topics such as infrared photography, street photography, macro photography and creating 3D (three-dimensional) images that can be viewed with conventional red and blue 3D glasses.
The book also includes a full discussion of the video recording abilities of the PowerShot S9, which can record high-definition (HD) video with stereo sound.
In three appendices, Photographer’s Guide to the Canon PowerShot S95 provides information about accessories available for the camera, sets forth a list of useful web sites and other resources for further information, and includes a section with helpful “quick tips” that give particular insights into how to take advantage of the camera’s advanced features in the most efficient ways possible.

Thanks so much for this fantastic guide. I am glad that I made my decision to buy this book. And many thanks for keeping the price low for the pdf version. It helped me to make my mind setup for the purchase. Thanks again,
Thanks! I’m glad you found it useful.
My book just arrived yesterday via B&N special order. This book is everything it claims to be. The printout of Canon’s pdf, hole-punched, in a binder on my computer books shelf does not suffice. Canon’s manual is a reference book. White’s book serves as a proper tutorial which I can read at my leisure and also bring along with the camera if I want. For me it is worth the extra money to have the actual book. I keep the pdf of Canon’s manual on my computer for searching fast. White’s book is very readable and clear. And the layout and photos are very pleasing, which is important to me. By perusing the book, in just 24 hours I have learned so much. I did not understand all the differences in SD cards – see pp 19-24. That in itself justified for me getting this book. I already purchased and have been using the eye-fi card from reading a preview of the book. I am looking forward to learning all about the menus and setting up the shortcuts to my favorite menus. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to get the most out of the fantastic S95 camera.

Kudos to White Knight Press – my order for the pdf version of the Canon S95 guide came very quickly, and I was given the opportunity to pay in Swiss francs (with the correct exchange rate). I have loaded the file to my iPad, and at first glance, this seems exactly what I need. My S95 took great photos during my recent vacation in Barcelona in “auto” mode but now I want to learn much more about using the camera.
Thanks very much — I hope the book turns out to be useful to you — the S95 is a great camera, with terrific capabilities.
Even though I carefully chose my S95 and normally drive a DSLR, I never think that I know all I need to know about my cameras. When I found the first indications of this book on the Internet, I realised that the extracts showed it went into every conceivable option available. I bought the pdf and have used it as a tutorial to go through every available option in what I believe is still the best pocket camera available. There’s no point in having a Swiss Army Knife to just butter toast. An S95 is not just an ordinary point and shoot. This book will not make you an awesome photographer, but it will let you know the functions of an awesome camera.
Thanks for the comment! I agree that the S95 is a great camera, especially for its small size. I’m glad you’re enjoying this terrific camera.
