Expert Review

  • Conclusion: Canon PowerShot G9 digital compact camera "We want RAW" we called out simultaneously when the G7 was introduced. And we did get it with the Canon PowerShot G9, including some adjustments that aren't necessarily improvements, since I certainly did not ask for more pixels. Canon did well taking a second look at the hand-fit of the camera. A few small alterations improved it tremendously. Thankfully the designers left the unique operation and shape alone.

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot G9 is a very powerful compact which will greatly appeal to enthusiasts or anyone looking for a pocketable backup for a DSLR. It features a wide array of manual controls which unlike many compacts are sensibly implemented and on the whole, unrestricted. The quality lens offers a useful 6x range and sports both optical stabilisation and impressive macro facilities.
  • Pros: 6x optical zoom with IS and decent macro., Flash hotshoe for Speedlites and wireless., Dedicated ISO dial and control wheel., Great manual exposure and RAW support.
  • Cons: No flip-out screen, nor much grip to speak of., Noise at 400 ISO and above., Modest AF speed and slow continuous shooting., A650 IS and EOS 400D compelling alternatives.

  • Conclusion: The Canon Powershot G9 ticks all the right boxes for me. In terms of picture quality it is difficult to find much better in a compact camera. It is also packed with features and it will be hard for me to let this camera go. Recommended.
  • Pros: Picture quality - viewfinder - features - red eye correction tool - macro shot - LCD screen quality
  • Cons: Shutter lag times are longer than SLR lag times

  • Conclusion: As close to a DSLR without being a superzoom, the G9 offers manual functionality with a degree of compactness

  • Summary: The Canon Powershot G9 is both a worthy upgrade to the previous G7 model and a real alternative or backup to an entry-level DSLR camera, thanks largely to the return of RAW mode. It offers the ultimate control over image quality for those prepared to spend the time refining their images post-capture, and a wealth of advanced features that will satisfy most photographers needs.

  • Summary: A compact digicam with an advanced feature set that would make it an excellent complement to a DSLR.Canon has re-introduced raw file capture to its top-of-the-range digicam, the PowerShot G9. This alone makes it a significant upgrade to the G7 model, although the G9 has slightly higher resolution (12.1 megapixels vs 10 megapixels) and a larger, 3.0-inch LCD screen.

  • Excerpt: Bien plus performant que ses prédésseurs, le Powershot G9 a de quoi séduire les photographes experts. Le G9 est une véritable référence d'ergonomie tout comme sa qualité d'images, toute fois nous mettons un bémole sur le zoom limité en courte focale à 35 mm. L'écran LCD de l'appareil a été agrandi (3").
  • Pros: Qualité optique, Bonne réactivité, Qualité d'image à 800 ISO
  • Cons: Dommage qu'il ne soit pas grand angle, Trop de bruit en mode 3.200 ISO

Canon PowerShot G9 Review

LetsGoDigital
8 December 2007
  • Conclusion: De perfecte compactcamera is de Canon PowerShot G9 dus niet, maar hij komt al aardig in de buurt. Misschien dat de Canon G10 dat gaat worden. Dan wel graag wat meer groothoek, minder pixels (u leest het goed!), betere RAW ondersteuning en wat extra functies zoals een draadloze bediening. Voor de rest hoeft er niet zo heel veel te veranderen. Voor nu ben ik tevreden met de Canon G9 en wordt het weer tijd om lekker te fotograferen met deze camera. Gaat u mee?
