i give this camera top marks even though i don't give it all 5s. but it *is* to this day my favorite digital camera, and i have not replaced it with the G11. i *love* the combination of ease of use and manual features that allow for lots of creativity. i have bought the wide converter lens and also a Speedlite 430ex flash to overcome the limitations of the lens/built-in flash combo, and could not be happier with the results. in standard setting, it makes a fantastic take-everywhere camera for ...

I've had my G9 Since October of 2007 and have been very pleased with the photos it has produced. Great images within the 80 to 200 ISO range.

As a Canon XTi user (w/a Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS as my main lens), my G9 has a high bar to meet for image sharpness, and stopping down is part of my recipe for usable shots with the G9. I've found by trial and error that shooting wide open produces a rather soft image. I've had my G9 for 2 years. I've found it to be easily carried - and even forgotten about - in a front pants pocket. I put away the straps that came with it and replaced them with a pair of split rings: a tiny one to go ...

I have been using this camera for 18 months and it has produced some really good results. It is very well constructed,better made i think than most cameras in this category. It was a bit expensive,but you have to pay for quality in my opinion. Problems: none.

Uma camera de excelente qualidade. Muito util para ser usada como camera de estepe; isto é, uma segunda camera. Ao fotografar com esta belezinha, as vezes me surpreendo, pois, acabo fazendo capturas melhores do que com minha DSLR Canon EOS 5D; em iso 80 à 200. Uma vez que o sistema digital tornou a fotografia "eletronica", não se pode esperar e nem mesmo comparar com os resultados do filme. Contudo, usando os softwares Phptpshop entre outros, é possivel conseguir excelentes resultados com ...

I have the camera for almost a year now. What can I say about it - comparing it to other compact and ultra-zoom cameras that I have played with (Sony H9, Panasonic FZ18, different Olympus, Nikon, Fuji and Canon older models) - and I can definitely say that this is the most pleasant camera to take pictures with which makes the picture-taking process exciting and involving experience. The build quality is a different league; every other compact camera seems like a plastic toy compared to it; ...

Like many of you professionals I was looking for the best to buy "have-it-always-with-you"-camera to fit into a normal pocket (which makes it necessary for the lens to retreat completely into the housing). Since portability for me is a major issue (owing 12kg of L lenses and dslr cameras) the camera has to fullfill the following requirements: -raw ability with good dynamic range -good low iso performance -reasonably low distortions, color fringing, vignetting -compact & tough body, reliable ...

VERY SLOW but Well built Brick of a camera! Quality of images is good though not amazing. Painfully SLOW this is no SLR if you are expecting speedy performance then do not bother with a G9 it is as slow as any other compact. Problems: NO problems other that it not being any where near fast as an SLR in use IE slow start up slow focus slow recovery times etc etc .... Expensive for what it is.

When I bought this camera back in January 2008, I was far from thinking what it could do for me. I've been using digital compact cameras for over 4 years now, and decided to get a Canon camera, because i never had one before, and because i absolutely loved the pictures i've been watching in several reviews. I was undecided between the the SX100, the S5 and the G9. Decided for the G9 because IQ was my main gold. After getting my hands on it, i realized how little i knew about photography, so ...
