    I am interested in buying the Canon G9 for family photos, around the house weekend trips etc.

    Please share your thoughts if you own the G9 and also any photos taken with your G9.

    Thanks in advance.

    The G9 is Wonderful.

    I recently got this digicam from Amazon as a back up to my Canon EOS 5D for situations when I couldn't take it.

    Its a great little camera and you shouldn't compare it to a DSLR, but as P&S it works well. RAW capability, 6x optical zoom, DSLR type controls, live histogram and manual focus make it wonderful.

    Since it's essentially a G7 with a higher density sensor and RAW, most things about the G7 will be true with the G9.

    I have a G7, and it works great for what I use it for (candid photos and hobby photography). I'd say it definitely packs a punch for its size. Some disadvantages I've seen, however, are noise at mid and high ISOs (400 and above), and holding the camera with one hand.
