A superb primary camera or backup to your digital SLR
29 October 2013
Summary: While the G9 is out of production, a number of professional photographers such as John Fielder continue to keep the G9 as a pocket camera. A number of photos in Fielder's coffee table photo books are taken with a G9 .
Summary: Great pro quality camera. Fantastic pictures if the photographer does his part. It will keep up with many DSLR's of higher price. This is my second one.Only complaints about it: shutter lag between pushing shutter and shutter actuation is too slow and the optical viewfinder could line up better with...
Summary: I already have a G7 & G9. I purchased this G9 for my daughter. Condition of the camera was very good, however there was a spot of some kind on the viewing screen. Could be the coating. Past that detail I felt the camera was A good value for the price I paid for it.
Excerpt: The PowerShot G9 is my third digital camera. I decided to upgrade to a near digital SLR experience before jumping on to the real deal. The pictures are sharp, the colors are crisp and the photo review is so cool on its 3 inch LCD, you don't wanna take your eyes off of it.
Best pocketable semi-pro digital camera out there, period.

Summary: Here is how much I love this little camera: When I dropped my original in a river while boarding a dinner cruise, I immediately ordered this same model, instead of the newer (and larger, taller, heavier) G10 or G12. I own dozens of cameras, and use them all professionally and for leisure.
Summary: This G9 Canon really is a fine camera. I think it's comfortable to hold and shoot, maybe a little heavy but that's because it's built so well. It does so many things that the menus take some time to get used to but all good things in time. Having a LCD screen and a optical viewfinder is wonderful.
Summary: Superb combination of features from the best of a SLR and a Point and Shoot. Easy to use with multiple mode choices from fully automatic to photographer controlled for shutter and or aperture. Bright LCD, fast cycle time, with good zoom-wide angle range.
Summary: I JUST LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS CAMERA. SO EASY AND TAKES AWSOME PICTURES WITH NO LAG. BEAUTIFUL VIDEOS AS WELL... TURNS OUT BETTER PICS/VIDEOS THAN MY FRIENDS $3,000 CAMERA. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A USER FRIENDLY CAMERA THAT TAKES BEAUTIFUL PICS .. AND BEST OF ALL AT A GREAT PRICE..
