Canon PowerShot G9 - Test shots - Exposure evaluation

A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality.

The wide angle end of the zoom is equivalent to 35mm, about average for a compact camera. Again, the full-size image was too large for our download system. We must do something about that if we're going to be seeing more 12mp cameras.

The telephoto end of the 6x zoom is equivalent to 210mm, a useful range for picking out distant objects.

Dynamic range is better than some high-powered compacts, but the shadows are still a bit murky.

Colour rendition and exposure are first rate.

The G9 is a good camera for creative photography, and really encourages you to get out and take photos.
