Plagued by stuck pixels

lk, Amazon
11 September 2008
  • Summary: I have bought and returned 3 PowerShot G9 cameras because of stuck pixels. I really like the features and size of the G9, but I cannot accept it if has stuck pixels. The first G9 I bought had two stuck pixels in every shot I took: One bright red one near the center and one faint green one about 3/4ths to the right. The stuck pixels were present in the image files. This was a major defect.

Poor Quality Control, but great camera

Spicy Tofu "booktalk", Amazon
11 September 2008
  • Summary: I really love the G9. This is the perfect camera for street photography. It takes much sharper pictures than the typical point and shoot and it is much easier for me to carry around than my Canon XT. (I keep it in my messenger bag when I walk around the city.) The 2 downsides: 1) Noise. The pictures are definitely noisy indoors, no matter how much light. However, it's not any worse than your typical P&S. (It is worse than DSLR for sure though) 2) Poor quality control.

Did you expect a DSLR?

mavn "Rand Fan", Amazon
30 May 2008
  • Summary: I'll preface this by saying that my photographer friend and I, who both own Canon's excellent 5D DSLR, both purchased a G9 from Amazon to be our "grab-and-go" compact cameras so we would not have to always lug around the 5D and its lenses. We are both members of the local camera club. Amazon came through with their as-promised delivery time, as usual.

Good camera but...

Bakari Chavanu, Amazon
25 December 2007
  • Summary: There's already really reviews of this camera, but I thought I'd throw in my perspective from a professional photographer's perspective. Pros: --Sturdy, stylish, and compact. Treat this camera well and it could last a while. --RAW is definitely a plus, and if you care about about taking higher quality photos, shoot in RAW when you can. --Manual control --C1 and C2 presets useful. You can save camera settings and recall them when needed.

So So compared to G6

Photography Enthusiast, Amazon
3 November 2007
  • Summary: I own a G6. When I used it for the first time, my impression was WOW! The image qualiy was just outstanding. A few years later came the G9. I actually felt G6 is better in terms of pictue quality. G6 is a 7 million pixel camera. G9 is 12 million. I think Canon should start to educate people NOT to buy into just pixel count. I think 7 million pixel is more than enough for regular consumers.

G9 has a LCD light leak problem

G. Cruz, Amazon
17 October 2007
  • Summary: I have returned four G9s because of the LCD light leak problem. Just search G9 light leak on dpreview.com and you'll see photos of what I'm talking about. My 40D, 20D, SD550, and HV20 do not have the light leak issue that the G9 has. If you don't want to search, just put the camera in playback mode without a SD card installed and take a look at the lower right hand of the screen.

bella ma datata

bob777, Ciao
7 April 2014
  • Summary: E' stata una delle prime semicompatte ad avere una certa importanza in quanto faceva delle foto stupende grazie al suo sensore e grazie alla possibilità di lavorare anche in manuale ma ormai è una macchina fotografica datata se non sbaglio sono passati più di 5 anni dalla sua uscita è attualmente in commercio ci sono semi compatte molto migliori in fatti vi consiglio di prendere le più recenti g16 o g14 che sono molto più nuove e con tecnologie migliorate anche anzi...

mala canon mal servicio

jonugarte, quesabesde.com
5 October 2011
  • Summary: la máquina no enciende y no es un problema de batería lo que, por lo que veo, es un fallo que se repite. Tarifa plana reparación 183 euros más portes total 206 euros. Lamentable. No compraré más canon.

Canon Powershot G9

Birger F., foto.no
5 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Slett ikke ubrukelig, men det finnes mye annet som muligens er bedre til ditt bruk.
  • Pros: Et lite og lett i bruk kamera som er enkelt å ta med. Litt større enn de fleste lomme kameraer idag, men det er solid og har de fleste instillingsmuligheter de fleste kjenner fra speilrefleks kameraer. Spesielt vil jeg nevne kontroll hjul og brytere for iso og eksponering er direkte tilgjengelig uten å måtte grave seg ned i menyer. Objektivet er også relativt lyssterkt.
  • Cons: Bildekvaliteten er ikke bedre enn på mange billige kompakt kameraer. Billed sensoren er for liten, har for høy pixel-tetthet og dette skaper mye støy i bildet særlig når man bruker iso 400 og over. Det er derfor vanskelig å få skarpe bilder innendørs uten å måtte ty til en blitz som ruinerer stemningen. Jeg klarte aldri å stille inn blitzen slik at den fungerte som en fyll-blitz, den var som regel altfor sterk eller for svak. Jeg har erfaring med SB28 og TTL uten at d...
