Nikon 5400 or Canon A95?
With the current $200 rebate on the Nikon 5400, the price of the 5400 and the Canon A95 are about the same. Any thoughts on which would be the better buy? I realize that the Nikon has external flash and 4x zoom. The Canon A95 is always at the top of most lists for best buy so wondered what people thought. Thanks...

I bought the Coolpix 5600 and am very pleased with it. It is compact, but loaded with so many features and it is sooo easy to use. I too looked at the 5400, but the 5600 was only $20 more. Yes, Canon is a great camera, but I after many days of researching I decided to go with the Nikon Coolpix 5600...

The A95 has better image quality and superior battery life.

You will probably be happier with that one. - Itai..

The A95 is the winner. The new A610 is even better. My Canon S60 picture quality come close to my Nikon D50. I actually tested the A95 vs. S60 and found their picture quality was the same. I even prefer "Canon color" over Nikon.

However, the D50 is a DSLR. That means I can use different techniques to capture much better images than the P&S Canon but I admid the D50 is not the best in auto mode...

I realize the OP's post is now over a year old, but anyway.I have both the Nikon 5400 and the Canon A95. Both are excellent cameras in their original price ranges, the A95 being an especially great bargain. But the 5400 is much the better camera overall, and if the OP could buy one at about the same price as an A95, that's the one he should have have bought. I bought mine after that model was discontinued, a never-owned display camera, so got it at a terrific price. It has a noticeably better build quality than the Canon, has a hot shoe for external flash, and the 28-116mm (equivalent) lens is outstanding. It's too bad that Nikon no longer makes that sort of camera, but they are dropping their high-end fixed-lens line entirely to concentrate on low-end digital SLRs, which I suppose makes good marketing sense...
