Excerpt: The Canon Power Shot camera takes excellent pictures that are very high quality. I recently received this camera as a birthday gift and already it has become the envy of several of my friends (many of whom are looking to purchase the camera). Its pretty easy to use the camera, however, I have had a little trouble hooking it up to my computer in order to upload photos.
Excerpt: I used the Canon G9 while I lived in Japan for over a year and I put it to good use. I wanted a phone that was powerful (could take pictures in RAW format), but also was small in size. I've never owned a DSLR, so I thought having the G9 would be a good starting point. The G9 took great pictures, but post-processing the pictures was very time consuming as well as taking up a lot of hard drive space.
Excerpt: I love the Cannon Powershot G9. With my last camera, I had the problem where i would go to take a picture and by the time I took it the object would have moved. This camera takes pictures instantly and caputres exactly what I want. I have captured so many more memories because of the speed and ability of this camera. I am so thrilled to have a camera that meets my needs. Besides for this, it also has many additional features for shooting, editing, and recording videos.
Summary: This is an absolutely amazing camera. I did extensive research before purchasing and most people seemed to agree that there was no real reason to seek out the further iterations of the G-series. The G10 it seemed was arguably a backstep in some areas and the G11 and G12 do not show significant enough image quality improvements to warrant the extra money they'll cost.
Summary: Very good product .# 1 digital Camera Power Shot for CANON I've owned CANON SLR digital but went I go out I like to take the G9 is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan I am very impressed and the images absolutely sharpness with this small guy
Summary: Theres really not much difference between the new 12.1 megapixel Canon PowerShot G9 and the 10 megapixel PowerShot G7 it replaces. They pretty much look alike. They both are optically stabilized the same way. They have the same zoom lens (35mm equivalent), hotshoe and an optical viewfinder that's about the same. The G9 has a slightly bigger 3-inch wide view LCD. But I find them pretty much the same.
Summary: I've had my G9 for a few weeks now and am very pleased. Image quality is top-notch for a non-SLR and the ability to shoot in RAW format is inidspensible. I've also used the G7 quite a bit previously and thought people might be interested in a comparison between the two. In short, if you already have a G7 and don't need RAW support, you won't see any huge advantage to the G9.
Summary: I am a professional landscape photographer and I wanted a small point & shoot to have handy to grab pictures of my family as well as keep in the car at all times. The G9 delivers on all counts. I was waiting for Canon to release a point & shoot that could capture in RAW format, and when I heard about the G9 and after hearing lots of great things about the G7, I knew this would be the camera for me.
