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.
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.
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: This camera is just about what I wanted in a small footprint/high resolution RAW-enabled camera. Even though I favor my Nikon D80 for professional shots, there are times I don't want to, or can't, carry that heavier camera. But I didn't want to give up RAW images. The pros include a solid body, easy to use interface and a hot shoe. It's also a Canon, a company whose customer service is usually pretty responsive.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality, Strong Construction
Summary: I bought the G9 as a replacement for a G7. The capabillity to use RAW immage and greater resolution was main part of descition to buy. To bee a point& shoot camera I think it's the best. The only drawback is the lag. I many times use it as a compliment to my main camera (Canon Ds Mk ll). I also take stereo pics with an old Stitz stereo with great reults.
