A superb primary camera or backup to your digital SLR
29 October 2013
Summary: While the G9 is out of production, a number of professional photographers such as John Fielder continue to keep the G9 as a pocket camera. A number of photos in Fielder's coffee table photo books are taken with a G9 . Its near impossible to find a camera with a comprable robust metal body, high quality optics, and high resolution chip.....
Summary: Great pro quality camera. Fantastic pictures if the photographer does his part. It will keep up with many DSLR's of higher price. This is my second one.Only complaints about it: shutter lag between pushing shutter and shutter actuation is too slow and the optical viewfinder could line up better with the actual image captured. I carry it more than any other camera because it is so handy.
Excerpt: This is such an excellent camera for great pictures, easy to use, do not have to be techno savvy. I bought this as my very first digital camera and an extremely impressed especially with all the different features; 12.1 megapixel,3.0 inch LCD screen for picture viewing. Which is all great for zooming into pictures, croping and enlarging pictures.
Excerpt: Ok so I am a bit of a amatuer photography junkie. I just purchased this camera at the first of the year and I absolutely LOVE IT! I have had several different digital cameras I have to say I am most pleased with my canons. This is an excellent point and shoot style camera that anyone can use that comes with all of the extras that the professionals love. Add that it is a whopping 12.1 MP you just can't get a better deal out there right now.
Excerpt: The G9 is a great alternative to an SLR if you don't feel like carrying something huge, or losing your camera in your back pocket. it's a happy medium. Hi ISO, long exposure capabilities and takes beautiful Macros, my only complaint is that there is no shutter remote.
Excerpt: Love this camera! I bought it after heavy research online, used on ebay. It was still great quality, barely used at all. The ease of use is incredible, and the pictures turn out great! Great zoom, clear and bright pictures, I love it! I always bring it to concerts, and my pictures turn out so great, they look like they could go in magazines!
Excerpt: The Canon Powershot G9 Digital Camera is a wonderful camera. This camera is very easy to use and even the most tech illiterate people can use it. This is why I reccomend this camera to people because many times people who are taking pictures don't know technology very well and this camera does not confuse them. It makes taking a picture, viewing it, moving it, organizing, and deleting photos very easy and self-explanatory. Not only that it's quality is amazing.
The Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera is Canon's best camera yet
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I received the Canon Powershot G9 Digital Camera as a Christmas present a couple years ago. I really wanted to expand my photography skills, and this camera has allowed me to do so! It was very easy for me to figure out and use. Even it you aren't too tech-savy, the camera comes with a great and easy to follow instruction manual. This camera has a lot of really great features and the display panel helps me find the features with ease.
Excerpt: This camera is the best point and shoot camera I have ever owned. It is easy to use. It has a great lens. it is almost 13 megapixels. It takes SD cards, just like every other piece of electronics. It is solidly built. This camera has taken a lot of abuse. It has a great zoom. It has a hot shoe for an off the camera flash if you want it.
Excerpt: After reviewing dozens of cameras both instores and online I chose the Canon Powershot G9. I chose this one because of the quality and price. I have owned it for two years now and have not experienced any promblems with it. It has taken thousands of pictures, been on many outdoor vactions, and been dropped many times; but it still works like brand new.
