CANON G9

A First Rate Semi-Pro Camera

Published February 2008

It’s just amazing how fast the measuring stick changes. Some say that 50 is the new 30 and with the big 5-0 looming on the horizon, I like the sound of that! To make this more relevant, 12-megapixels (12MP) is the new 8MP and the Canon G9 is the perfect example of this logic, with a 12MP sensor in a very compact form. Retail price for this little jewel is $499, but I have seen a few reputable dealers selling it online for about $420, so a little smart shopping will save enough money for a 4GB memory card!

A Capable Compact

Published March 2008

If only cars got better, offered more performance and cost way less than they used to three or four years ago, we’d all be driving Porsches that got 50 miles to the gallon and cost $12,000. The good news for digicam buyers is this happens every day!

The Canon PowerShot A720 IS is a perfect example of this; 6x optical zoom, 8 megapixel sensor in a nice little compact case for $229. Memory cards cost more than this a year or two ago. It also includes Image Stabilization and quite a few different automatic modes to make basic picture taking as easy as falling out of bed.

Canon SX100 IS

8MP, 10X, Tracking Face Detection

Published March 2008

When it comes to point-and-shoot digital cameras, Canon has certainly got you covered, with a model to satisfy just about every shooter from beginner to advanced. As for me personally, I prefer a digicam that is compact — not ultra-slim, because that usually means you are paying extra for just the fashion and convenience of thinness. And it’s got to have a more powerful zoom lens (greater than 5X) with other good features too. The new Canon PowerShot SX100 IS is just such a digicam. Want more details? Read on.

A 12MP Performer For Less Than $450

by Jeff Dorgay

Published February 2008

The top-of-the-line in Canon’s A series of compacts, the A650 IS features a 12MP sensor like the G9, with a 6x optical zoom, 4x digital zoom and optical stabilization. Retail price is $449 with street price coming in at $399, so if you are pinching pennies at the 12MP level, this is a good alternative. (See a review of the G9 elsewhere in this issue.)
