Canon PowerShot S95 & Fuji F505 Deals at Amazon

Canon PowerShot S95

Amazon is still rolling with its Black Friday Deals Week offerings.  Now, you can find the Canon PowerShot S95 for $289, as well as the Fuji F505 for $199.  Both cameras retail for $400. I think both of these are pretty solid deals for RAW-shooting compacts.

Canon PowerShot S95 Review

The Canon PowerShot S95 is a 10MP point and shoot camera that is essentially a slight refresh to its predecessor, the PowerShot S90.  With the ability to capture RAW image files and a bright f/2.0 lens, the S95 is a great pocket camera for the DSLR shooters out there.

New Canon Gear on August 17

A tipster tells me that Canon will be launching “1 dslr, some lenses and lots of point and shoot” cameras on August 17, which word supposedly comes from a source within Canon.

I don’t think any of this is really groundbreaking as rumors and leaks of the 60D have been flying like crazy lately, and Canon Rumors has pegged the G12, S95, SX30, SX130 and other point and shoots for launch soon.

The date, however, is different than what has previously been mentioned (Aug. 24 or 26).  I guess we’ll know Tuesday.
