Canon has obviously fine-tuned its noise reduction for the new sensor, and though there's not a lot in it the result is a slight improvement. As ISO 400 on small sensor compacts goes this is about as good as it gets (Fujifilm F31fd aside, of course), though the noise reduction is some smearing of low contrast detail overall the output is sharp and has surprisingly good color (anly a slight desaturation). The G7 was pretty good, with the G9 Canon, thankfully, hasn't blown it.

My super wonderful G9 is going to turn 6 years old soon.

I am grateful to Canon for this sort of masterpiece, despite I have some troubles now due to dust on sensor. But I am sure I'll find the right people that will sort this out.
And I'll keep shooting with her.

Greets to all the reviewers from Italy.
