Avoid

  • Summary: I've had this camera for many months and absolutely loved it... until the "dust problem". Now, I have a large grey squiggle and spots that are very visible on the LCD as well as on images shot with the camera. Prior to this, there were dust particles on the *inside* of the lens that could not be removed, but this did not affect the image quality. I suspect I now have dust on the image sensor itself.

  • Summary: The camera is great if you can use it without a problem. you can use manual mode to adjust the the shutter speed/exposure. I bought mine 3 months ago and now regret. after just 1 month of the purchase, I noticed some dust inside the lens that made my focus very slow and even not accurate sometimes. then the dust found the way to the sensor. the dust in the sensor will be shown in the LCD.

Canon G9 DEAD

lerot, Amazon
10 August 2012
  • Summary: Bought this 'quality' £350 camera for simple light amateur use. Owned for 2 years and it seems pretty good. However on vacation and the camera just suddenly died with the lens stuck out. Not the battery - so Googled it, and guess what - known problem. Apparently screws come loose inside (of course it takes longer than the warranty to come loose) and short out the circuit boards inside - theres even pictures on Google showing where the screws become lodged.

Rauschen schon bei kleinster ISO Zahl

  • Summary: Ich habe mir die G9 gekauft, da ich seit 2002 mit der G2 und der G5 sehr gute Erfahrungen gemacht habe. Sowohl Bilder der G2 und G5 haengen in 40x60 knackscharf ( mit Stativ ! )an meiner Wand. Dabei auch Nachtaufnahmen verschiedener Staedte. Alles super. Da ich glaubte zur 5D (die Alte) noch ein UW Gehaeuse zu brauchen mit guenstiger Kamera, holte ich mir die G9 mit dem dafuer vorgesehenen UW Gehaeuse. Schon bei den ersten Aufnahmen fiel ich fast vom Glauben.
  • Pros: guenstige Zubehoerteile
  • Cons: Die Bilder sind verrauscht

  • Summary: je viens de lire un avis très long et détaillé sur le g9 c'est de la pob cachée, en fait une tromperie,pas l'avis d'un consommateur ; il est évident que ce faux avis émane de l'entreprise de part les détails techniques profonds ce procédé est honteux ,destiné à abuser fuyer donc cela
