After 10 countries, and 59 cities, I finally have what I wanted!
30 December 2008
Summary: I have had this camera for over 8 months now. During that time, I have done some random photography, and traveled to Barcelona, Granada, Mallorca, and St. Louis. I have taken water shots, night shots, and usual tourist shots.
Summary: This camera has restored the fun in photography for me. Let me explain: I am 80 years old, started out with a Speed Graphic using the Ansel Adams Zone System, graduated to a Linhof Technica V with all the extras, downsized to an Olympus OM-1, then a Canon EOS 35mm with most of the extras, got older...

Summary: I have several canon cameras, 1Ds, 1D, 30D and several L lens and other very highly rated lens. The G-9 does not compare to them but the images are sharp and the functions are great, try the ND filter on moving water you will love it.
Summary: I have been using this camera for 5 months, and it has exceeded my expectations. The automatic modes (Auto and P) take such wonderful photos, that it's rarely necessary to use the special settings. Like on an SLR, it's easy to adjust the aperture/shutterspeed on the fly to change the depth of field.
Summary: Background - I used to own a 7.1 mega pixel Sony Point & Shoot for around an year, back in India. When I came to US i decided to buy a new camera. I wanted a high end Point & Shoot, as they are easy to carry and I thought SLRs would be tough to use.
Summary: This is the best compact digital camera that I've ever used. I carefully compared this with images from my 8MP DSLR, and confirmed that the G9 produces images with significantly greater resolution. 12MP really means 12MP. I was quite shocked.
