Canon PowerShot G9 Camera Review

Review guidelines
11 May 2013
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot G9 is a compact digital camera that is simplistic to define, because it differs significantly from other models that feature both size and weight. To highlight the sensor, among the highest in the category, 6x zoom, which is also above average, image stabilizer, face detection,...
  • Pros: RAW; Image Stabilizer, Optical Zoom, Face Detection, Sensor.
  • Cons: Internal Memory.

  • Conclusion: And what of my relationship with the M8?  Let’s just say I haven’t served divorce papers quite yet, but I’m thinking about it. While the physical aesthetic of our tools is essential to a good creative relationship, my time with the G9 showed me that, for me, the cutting edge of technology is capable...

Canon PowerShot G9 Review

20 September 2008
  • Summary: And so, the problems found on the G7 have been largely fixed on the G9 – to a degree. It’s the same price as the G7 at £330, so no more expensive but it is a better camera. The lens is sharp and crisp but could still do with the faster apertures of the G6 from a few years back with its impressive...
  • Pros: Great build and handling, Fully featured spec, RAW mode, Good macro setting, Image quality, LCD.
  • Cons: Higher ISO noise, Purple pixel fringing, FlexiZone AF issues, Blocky styling, Auto white balance issues.

  • Excerpt: The Canon Powershot G9 is not a brand new camera. It’s not the smallest or lightest camera but that’s not it’s purpose. The Powershot G9 is for ambitious photographers and amateurs that care about taking superb photographs, not the flat colorless crap you get from point-and-shoots that claim to take...

Camera Test: Canon PowerShot G9

Pop Photo
15 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Put the new 12.1 megapixel Canon PowerShot G9 ($499 street) next to the 10 megapixel PowerShot G7 it replaces. Now stick a piece of gaffer's tape over the model number. You'd be hard-pressed to tell them apart. The two digital cameras are virtually identical on the outside.

Canon Powershot G9 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
22 August 2008
  • Excerpt: First of all, I would like too observe that you are reading abot Canon G9 because other performant point an shoot camers from Canon don’t offer RAW file format as a shooting option (Raw shooting is selected via the Recording Pixels sub-menu in the Function menu).

DP Review
17 August 2008
  • Conclusion: I should start by giving Canon a little credit for so quickly responding to at least some of the criticisms of the G7; the G9 may be a relatively minor upgrade but it does knock a few of the rough edges off its predecessor and - most importantly - brings RAW capture (and highly usable RAW capture at...
  • Pros: Excellent resolution and respectable edge-to-edge sharpness across the zoom range, Raw mode, Raw+JPEG option, surprisingly fast - and useful, Classic 'rangefinder' styling looks great, fit & finish superb, Marginally improved handling (better grip) and better shutter release (more distinct half-p...
  • Cons: Still missing some features 'G' users could once rely on: fast lens, vari-angle screen, Although image quality is good, you'll only get the best results shooting raw, Some shadow noise visible even at ISO 80, Noise Reduction effects start to creep in and smear detail from about ISO 125, Despite i...
