Manufacturers defect - DO NOT BUY

Annika M Barnes, Amazon
1 September 2010
  • Summary: The Canon G9 has a manufacturing defect that causes internal screws to loosen and the camera to short out in about a year. The camera works beautifully until then (thus the glowing reviews), but then it dies and its hard to justify fixing.

Died collecting dust.

Mathieu Perry, Amazon

  • Summary: My G9 will not power on as of today. I charged the battery to no avail and have checked online for suggestions. I have now found MANY posts that the Canon G9 is notorious for failing around 12-16 months, often when the camera powers up and extends its lens.
