I eBay'd some old computer stuff, and splurged on a Canon G9 as a 'from me/to me' present. While I've used many digital cameras, none of them mine , this will be the first one that is my very own. In highschool & college I worked in darkrooms and did plenty of film/print processing, so my last camera was a Minolta Maxxum 7000i. I didn't want a dSLR for the same reasons that I stopped using the Minolta - too big, fragile, expensive and clunky to actually *use* conveniently. The G9 is the best compromise of being a-l-m-o-s-t like a dSLR in features, with a size that makes it usable for me. In addition to the camera itself, I'm getting a 4GB UltraIII SDHC card, aux lens mount + Tiffen UV filter, an extra battery and an A/C power adapter. I already have a tripod. I've seen no threads here about the G9 or the older/similar G7. Anyone have either of them? Any real-world use advice for settings?
