Anyone here use Canon Powershot G series of cameras?

I'm using the Powershot G6. Pretty nifty camera and it has pretty much all the features of a DSLR. Some things which makes it nifty.... F2.0, ISO 50 and RAW mode.

I have a G7. It is an awesome P&S. I still use it for certain occasions.

My Dad has a G7 and he gave it to my sister for travelling in Europe. G7 is black which I think is a better colour, but the G6 has a better lense and grip design, and it has RAW. The only thing that bugs me about the G6 is the lense cap design, it's attached to a string. Other than that, the performance is amazing especially in low light conditions.

There's a firmware upgrade out there to have the G7 use Raw.

not to mention you can also shoot videos.

IMO, you can never replicate a DSLR with a point and shoot, but the G series (G7 or G9) comes close. Its a great camera for those who want the adjustability of a DSLR in a small portable size.

Yes, it also applies for the G6 too.

I bought a new G9 a few months ago, it's wonderful. RAW mode is cool, but I would like a tilt/pan LCD screen.

I had a Leica D-Lux 3, sold it and bought the G9 and the the G9 stuck. It's typical Canon, problem free, takes great shots, and has a lot of handy features. Feels Fantastic as well, very solid all metal construction. Good stuff.

A BMW is Just a Car, it doesn't make you smart, handsome, cool, or wealthy. Get over it.
