CANON G9

A First Rate Semi-Pro Camera

by Jeff Dorgay

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!

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.

The Technology Train Ride

by John B. Holbrook, II

Published March 2008

In my experience, new technology is much like a train ride. Many folks out there, like myself, enjoy riding the new technology train and can’t wait to see where it next takes them. Other segments of the population seem to ride along the new technology train and simply fall off somewhere along their journey. Still others seem to intentionally jump off the technology train with no intention of going any further down the tracks.
