Canon Powershot G9

posted on 12th of august, 2008

I bought this camera some months ago and I'm very happy with it. Maybe it has more noise than I rather prefer, but in general, it's a good camera.
It has 12.1 MP, 4000x3000 pixels of photo. For uploading to DT I always shoot in it's widest resolution, and then in photoishop maybe reduce my 4000x3000 pixels photo, delete unwanted background,etc... or if the photo it¡s perfect I just upload it in XL :)

- Different shooting programs: Snow, Beach, Indoor, Foliage, Aquarium, Fireworks, Landscape, Underwater, Kids & pets, Night scene, Sports mode, Portrait mode, Stitch assist, Night snapshot

I always try to use Manual mode, but sometimes it's good to use one of this modes, 4example, I always shoot fireworks in "Fireworks mode" :)

- Special effects: Sepia, Vivid, Neutral, Vivid Red, Color Swap, Vivid Blue, Vivid Green, Color Accent, Black & White, Positive Film, Darker Skin Tone, Lighter Skin Tone

If you want more articstic shots or play with the color

- Max Shutter Speed: 1/2500 sec
- Min Shutter Speed: 15 sec

If you have bad light and no tripod try to shoot at moreshutter speed you can, example, better 1/30 than 1/15 or 1/8
As less speed, more out of focus

- Exposure Metering: Spot, Evaluative, Spot AF area, Center-weighted

- Exposure Modes: Manual, Program, Automatic, Shutter-priority, Aperture-priority

I try to use always manual ;-)

- White Balance: Flash, Cloudy, Daylight, Underwater, Fluorescent, Tungsten light, Custom, Presets, Automatic

- Image format: RAW,JPG

If you manage well with PC and post editing, I strongly recommend always shoot in RAW¡ you can edit white balance and color temperature on your PC. Some mode presets don't allow to save in RAW but manual mode do.

- Additional Features: AE lock, AF lock, FE lock, DPOF support, Audio recording, Histogram display, Resizing an image, Diopter adjustment, PictBridge support, USB 2.0 compatibility, RGB primary color filter, Camera orientation detection

- Flash Modes: Auto mode, Fill-in mode, Slow synchro, Flash OFF mode, Rear curtain sync, Red-eye reduction

About me

I got interested in photography on 2004-05, when I bought my first digital camera. I bought better cameras and finally, in 2006 I discovered Stock Photography, a fun and easy way to make money with my pictures, beside I'm not a pro. If you purchase one of my pics and want to let a comment about how it will be used I'll be very happy ;) If you need some specific theme or subject leave me a comment and I'll shoot it :) If you are from Barcelona or near and want to be my model,please leave me a comment
