“I’m looking for a good point and shoot camera. What do you think of the new Canon G9?”
The G9 specs look impressive, and Canon has added back a few of the features that I thought were missing when I reviewed the G7 for Monitor Magazine. I’ve been trying to review the G9 for a few months, but unfortunately Canon’s Canadian PR rep hasn’t been able to send me a loaner yet, so the best I can say is that it looks promising.
The G9 is at the top of Steve’s Prosumer list:
dpreview says “Highly Recommended (but only just)” [7.5/10]
Digital Camera Review seems happy as well: “The G9 has a few warts, but at this point in time and when compared to the other cameras in its class – the G9 is as good as it gets.”
I am considering a G9 and wonder if the Canadian PR folk has forwarded one to review. Many thanks.
