Ancient A95 is the reason I bought recently Canon DLSR as well. Has been bulletproof all these years (ok one repair but was cheap one), picture quality still competiteve in medium priced compact camera range, not bad for almost decade old technology... dont look at megapixels, but pictures ;)

Fantastic camera. 7 years old now, but performs well. Many nice features, especially the viewfinder and manual controls.
Only has needed one repair in it's 7 year life. The only downsides are it's a massive brick, and lowlight is pretty poor. Plus it is very outdated.

There are a few mistakes in the specs. The screen DOES flip out. It also has interchangeable lenses. Technically you can't take the one it comes with off, but you can add additional lenses on to it. No autofocus for movies. No external mic jack. It does have panorama mode, but not HDR or 3D. It has 9 point AiAF focus. Attached is a picture for the general page.
