CanonCanon PowerShot G9 digital camera review : Sometimes manufacturers actually listen to testers and users of digital cameras. In any case Canon did when developing the PowerShot G7. A terrific camera except for one minus; no RAW format was available and especially the photographer wanting a compact camera besides his DSLR was disappointed. But the successor, the Canon PowerShot G9, does offer RAW format making this top compact camera a very interesting one for the demanding and the professional photographer. Adding RAW format is not the only thing Canon has changed on the G9. The Canon G9 is now equipped with a new image sensor with 12 million pixels.

Canon PowerShot G9 vs PowerShot G7
Furthermore some cosmetic changes have been made. The silver had to make room for black which makes the Canon PowerShot G9 even look more classic than the G7. In order to improve the hand-fit Canon changed the design a tiny bit. The change is hardly noticeable but it does do the job. One who likes to use the Canon G9 with external flash, will be happy to hear that the infrared unit; the ST-E2, also works with this camera. Face detection is improved and enhanced with a so-called Face Select and Track function that lets you select and track a face from a group of 35 people.

Canon G9 digital camera - Classical appearance
A digital compact camera for the professional photographer should be solid and able to take a few bumps and bashes. Therefore Canon gave the PowerShot G9 a metal housing. You will notice the solidness when you take the camera in your hand for the first time. The device feels trusty and solid and besides that it is a beautiful camera to look at. Personally I find the Canon PowerShot G9 one of the most beautiful cameras of this moment. Even more so for its classical appearance which is pretty exceptional in the current digital world.

Despite of not offering RAW shooting, the Canon G7 conquered the hearts of many professional photographers. The question is if adding RAW shooting has made the Canon PowerShot G9 the perfect compact camera for the demanding photographer. We have had the Canon G9 in the office for a while for extensive testing. Our findings can be read in the following Canon G9 review.
