I'm new to this forum and I have some questions regarding the Canon S95.
Most of the postings on this forum for this camera have been favorable and good pictures can be produced with it based on some of the pictures that have been posted.
Based on those two things and my wanting to get this camera to begin with, I got one.
Here a couple of things I'm wondering about.
I'm finding that when I review the images on the camera's LCD screen, the images look really good. Good colours and good clarity.
But, when I download the images to my computer, they don't look as good on my 19 inch monitor.
I have a few other older cameras and don't find this noticable with them as I do with this camera.
My monitor is roughly 5 yrs old so maybe that might explain some things but, is what I'm seeing on the camera's screen accurate or does the camera's screen add more "punch" by design, to the pictures?
I haven't had any of the pictures printed yet so, I'm not sure what's giving the better representation, the camera screen or the computer monitor.
Has anyone else noticed this with their camera/monitor?
I fully charged the battery 11 days ago.
The battery ran out completely tonight.
Total pictures taken on the fully charged battery.. 70.
That's 70 jpg's at the camera's default settings.
That's a really low number compared to what numbers I've read that the battery should be capable of producing.
I did review all the pictures taken but, only for a matter of 5-10 seconds per picture. If that.
Used the zoom function a little bit, the flash for maybe 10 of the 70 pictures and only took a 10 second video.
I've read other complaints about the battery life but, should I expect the battery life to be better after the inital charge?
