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.
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: Better images than the new G10 (I have both). I do like the G10s wider angle lens however. Both this and the G10 are great high end point and shoots. Best uses are landscapes and subjects that are still. If you want to shoot action, buy a DSLR.
G9 still has the edge on G10 when it comes to portraits

Summary: Best Buy outlets have Canon G9 on clearance for $350, which is about the max I believe you should be paying for it nowadays. The model is quickly becoming obsolete. The next generation of prosumer cameras has already entered the the market (Canon G10, Panasonic LX3, Nikon P6000, etc).
Summary: I think that Canon may have created its own monster with the G series cameras. Far too many people think that they are going to get DSLR performance from what is essentially a point and shoot camera. Sorry, but there is no free lunch. You can build a camera to high standards.
Summary: I was looking for a compact travel camera with full manual controls and capable of excellent image quality (at least in good light). There are a lot of great P&S's out there but not a lot of compacts with manual controls.
Excellent product, but not quite great. This is a long one.

Summary: i would highly recommend heading over to luminous landscape and reviewing the travel article about a trip one of these took to japan in the hands of an expert, Nick Devlin. i think it very realistically sums up the capabilities of this camera far more accurately than a lot of the sourness you read...
Summary: After agonizing over a travel camera (I currently have an EOS 30D and lenses), I purchased a G9 three weeks ago and took it on a trip to Hong Kong. I have been pleasantly surprised with the quality of the pictures, particularly night shots and will be using this camera exclusively for travel from...
Summary: I own a second Canon Powershot SD600 digital elph for over two years now, the first one accidentally fell into the ocean and was damaged instantly. I am very impressed with its sturdy and compact built and it has not failed me in taking wonderful pictures in my travels both here in the US and abroad...
