This is a timid exercise with my new Canon Powershot S95.... a very interesting camera from all angles...photo, video, portability and so on. For video, this is a perfect instrument to capture wide angle shots in mid HD resolution (720 24p) with an exceptional quality and detail, something that I struggle even with my D90, on wider shots. It captures every detail on scene.... beautifully, even diagonal or angled elements with almost no jagged distortion. This camera is a great sidekick for your professional DSLR. Stereo microphone is really really good, and since it record at 24p you can virtually use it as an audio source, matching your 24p DSLR movie to perfection.
If it's true that this camera might not be a video powerhouse (non optical zoom on video, forcing you to use it at 28mm too keep HD quality, no manual control over exposure, ISO, or focus while filming, etc) is still a very nice piece to have in your pocket. In order words, I consider this camera, "my personal 28mm wide angle lens pocket device". Enjoy!
