The Canon G9 is an amazing camera. I can't fault in any way. It's feel is solid and seems reassuringly well built. It's not a true "point and shoot" as you can have the same level of creative control as with a DSLR.
I have three Canon DSLR's and love them all but this is the camera that I find myself taking on daily excursions to just about anywhere. The controls are very "Canon" and so anyone who is familiar with Canon controls will get it almost without looking at the instructions.
to me, this camera fits neatly into a position in Canon's camera range. It is a clever addition to somebody like me who is an enthusiastic amateur photographer but does not always want to lug the DSLR around.
It is a good uprgrade from a true "point and shoot" and will quickly reward you just hours after it comes out of the box. It's movie capability is also great and with a 4gb card in there I reckon it makes a video camera a bit redundant, particularly if you have a laptop and cardreader handy so that you can wipe the card clean after every day's shooting.

I love mine and I am really pleased that I bought it.

I use professional Nikon DSLRs, and like other people, wanted a small camera I could put in my pocket when I travel light. I travel a lot, and I have bought maybe five or six compact digitals over the last few years, hoping to find one which really filled my need. The Canon G9 looked and felt right as soon as I got it out of the box, and I was just hoping that it's image quality lived up to it's appearance. It does. It is much much better than any other compact I have used. The manual controls are excellent, the handling is very comfortable, and the operation is very well thought-out. I really enjoy using this little camera. The image quality is excellent, if not as good as that of my Nikon DSLRs. I did consider the Nikon P5100 compact (and I have not used one, so it might be superb!), but I decided to go for the Canon based on exhaustive trawling of forums and reviews by people who had used both cameras. It seemed to me that most people thought the image quality on both was good, that the grip on the Nikon was better, and the controls on the Canon were better. The Canon G9 has RAW as well as JPG, which is a big plus. I find that the low-light performance of the G9 is great - it really TRIES to get a decent picture! It will end up a bit grainy (noisy) if the light is really poor, but it does a good job in situations where you would need 3000 quid's worth of DSLR and lens to get a better picture. The build quality is excellent as well - some people have commented that it is a bit heavy, but I find it hefts very comfortably and FEELS like a decent bit of kit. Highly recommended!

I researched online for a long time before settling on this piece of kit and I must say I am absolutely delighted with it. I previously owned a Panasonic Lumix FZ30 which was great in good light but terrible in any other conditions. The Canon trumps it on outright picture quality and user friendliness not to mention size. It is a fairly bulky camera by modern compact standards but I think it feels nice and is quite portable. Will easily fit in a coat pocket for instance.

I am not a professional photographer but I wanted pro-looking results wihtout having to go for an SLR with all the hassle and expense that represents. In short if I see a scene that I would like a photo of then I want a camera that can make this possible as close to what the eye sees as possible - night, day, inside, outside etc. A major strength of the G9 is that it can do just this. At low ISO settings it gives truly remarkable picture quality. At ISO400 its a bit grainy but in a nice film like way. Above 800 I would accept that it is no longer of sufficient quality or detail to print. It can handle a wide variety of situations very well. The scene modes are useful and there are loads of them. The video mode is one of the best I've ever seen. Its manual controls are easy to use and the interface is superb. RAW capability means you have seriously useful post-processing control on issues such as exposure, white balance, colour saturation etc. I had never used this facility before but now I've seen the benefits I always shoot RAW+jpg. Many shots can be recovered using this. One more thing - its macro mode is absolutely superb.

Overall the greatest thing about this camera is that it's small to take with you wherever you go and capable enough to get the pictures you wanted whether they be still or video.

I`ve not had this camera for very long but even when I got it I could tell that this was a great camera. I use professional canon SLR`s (1D series) and wanted a compact that could be carried around on holidays, walks, partys etc when the SLR was not feasable. The build quality is fantastic, just the feel of the camera is enough to tell you that this is very well put together, capable of taking what you or I might throw at it.
Using SLR`s I found the menu`s and and dials well thought out and quite intuitive, even for someone new to photography they would not take to long to familiarise yourself with. When in the menus there are an abundance of features to keep you happy and to aid in the most difficult of circumstances. Don`t get me wrong I am not saying that anyone can take the camera and immediatly get the best results from it, but its guarenteed that if you take the time to learn how to use the exposure compensation, the ND filter, the white balance etc you can and will produce fantastic resuts.
And on to image quality, as others have said in terms of noise this camera does not fair as well as an SLR, this is unavoidable however as the sensors on SLR`s are bigger than those on compacts and so when enlarging the image on the sensor the larger sensor image will fair better because it has to be enlarged less than its compact counterpart. That said though this camera is no slouch in terms of noise giving good results up to and including ISO 400 (that isn`t to say that anything beyond this is unusable just that noise is more noticable).
The images that come out of the camera are fantastic add to that the ability to take your pictures in RAW and the therefore greater control over post proccessing makes this camera one of the leaders in image quality amongst compacts.
