Can Canon's new flagship compact win back the enthusiasts?

Canon PowerShot G9 digital camera

 

The G-series of Canon compacts are Canon's premium enthusiast-level compacts providing DSLR-like features and controls within a more compact and portable body. The G9 arrives amidst a marketplace packed to the gunnels with "affordable" DSLRs against...

Great build and handling, fully featured spec, RAW mode, good macro setting, image quality, LCD

Higher ISO noise, purple pixel fringing, FlexiZone AF issues, blocky styling, auto white balance issues

And so, the upgrade of the G7 that is the Canon PowerShot G9 has been fixed – to a degree. It’s the same price as the G7 at £330, so not cheap, but no more expensive and it is a better camera. The lens is sharp and crisp but could still do with the...

Canon PowerShot G9 review

 

Canon's latest stab at a 'serious' pocketable camera steps a little closer to perfection, but still has a little way to go

Serious photographic control and performance in a compact body, albeit at a price

Canon PowerShot G9 review

 

The quality of an SLR with the convenience of a compact

Strong features list ; Good performance for a compact ; Good-quality build

Three-tiered multi controller could be better ; Quite expensive

Don't expect quite the same overall picture quality and responsiveness of an SLR. The G9 is ideal for casual snappers that want the best, or keen photographers looking for a portable camera that doesn't sacrifice manual control

Canon PowerShot G9 digital camera

 

Canon's G series has converted many a serious film shutterbug to digital photography. Launched in 2000 with the PowerShot G1, the sturdy G line helped establish digital photography as something more than a novelty. But judging from the latest entry,...

While it’s a worthy camera in most ways, the Canon PowerShot G9 doesn’t offer many compelling advantages over lower-priced competitors. It’s hard to recommend it as a reasonable value.

Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera Review

 

Take your photography to the next level with the Canon PowerShot G9. Designed for the progressive photographer, the Canon PowerShot G9 delivers advanced control, RAW image capture and versatility.

Expand the capabilities of the Canon PowerShot G9 with a full range of additional accessories such as wide-angle and telephoto converter lenses; waterproof housing and Canon EX Speedlite flash products.

Canon PowerShot G9 Review

 

Did getting his hands dirty with the PowerShot G9 make Julian Lass a happy photographer? The answer's an unequivocal 'yes'

Fantastic features, solid body, great LCD, pin-sharp pics

Battery capacity not great, focusing laborious in macro

If you already own a DSLR, but want something equally capable to slip into your pocket, the G9 is it.

And so, the problems found on the G7 have been largely fixed on the G9 – to a degree. It's the same price as the G7 at £330, so no more expensive but it is a better camera. The lens is sharp and crisp but could still do with the faster apertures of the...
