Canon G9 Camera

It’s about time I put my trusty 2-year old camera to retirement. Everyone I know seems to have a Canon G9 Camera so I finally bit the bullet and ordered one today. I’m no professional photographer and I don’t need fancy schmancy features. I’m not the type who fiddles around with settings and crap so good luck to me. It’s funny how people always assume I’m a “techie” when I know absolutely nothing when it comes to gadgets and shit.

I should get my new camera any day now and I hope I made the right choice. I’ve had Sony digital cameras for years. I think now is a good time to try Canon. We’ll see. :-)

    Very good choice – if you were not getting this, I would have suggested the Ricoh GX100. The G9 takes pics with very good resolution I must say, also good movie quality. But since you don’t really care much about having good results even at low ISO settings (which this camera can do), this is one of the best right now for point-and-shoots. I have been using mine since Christmas and no regrets. With 12.1 mp, you can’t go wrong – I’m sure you’ll be happy with it. Just hope you didn’t pay for the full price at this time.

  2. Just make sure it’s spelt with a double ‘n’. Cos the fake ones only have one ‘n’.
    Like Guci.
    Or Channel.
    And with you living in the Third World where fakes are rife, well, I hope and pray that you don’t get ripped off with one of the fake ‘Canons’.

  3. Canon Is The Bomb!

    I really want to get this too. It somehow looks like those old Canons form the 80’s! Almost vintage looking! It would nice to have an old looking clunker sometimes, but deliver great digital photos.

  4. A friend of mine has that camera. I borrowed it the other day and it was really easy to use. just point and shoot! plus the transfer to a computer was smooth and quick. Im actually thinking to get one too! let us know how u like it once u get it!

    poor ferroever. it’s him/her who’s been buying fakes all this time without a CLUE! i knew his/her suggestion to spell “real” canon’s with double n’s there was something amiss you i looked that up. looked up chanel as well. the poor fool.

    good camera, a lot special futures. also it has pre-set shooting easy modes, so you’ll be fine..
    by the way, you might need to exercise before, because it is a bit heavy.
    hehe

    Hear that, Bryanboy? Be sure to get a CANNON, with 2 Ns. Sort of like that one in Corregidor perhaps? Hahaha! And take a photo with your single N, third world variety “fake” Canon.

  8. Good choice, a lot of pros carry this as a second camera, can even be used with a proper flash unit! Do try and explore the features a bit though, it’s an extremely capable camera.

  9. its actually .. CANON… with ONE N !
    the official CANON website is spelled with ONE N !
    perhaps CANNON is the fake one.
    get together people.

  10. my sony camera is really old too. i’ve been using it for 4 years and although it’s still great for movies, the picture quality is just… blah. well it was great 4 years ago but now it’s… :(
    i went to the patricia field party last night and if not for my friend’s camera, i would have been left with only a few good shots!
    i want the canon too!!! or a ricoh!

  12. Dang! I’ve been wanting to get this camera. It’s really good. 12mp! Oh HEAVEN!

  13. Hey BB, how much is it costing you there, I’m comparing the prices in as many places as I can, so far , without tax, it come sin cheapest in Belgium, I thought it would have been Oz, or singapore, but it was most expensive at London duty free,and coming in second was at Singapore duty free, Singapore duty free was even more expensive than normal price in Sydney

    Fabulous fabulous cam! My brother has an entry-level DSLR while I use this and photos are comparable! Sometimes he borrows mine when he doesn’t wanna lug around lenses, etc. Auto/Program mode does wonders but has full manual and creative controls too :)
