An Unscientific Comparison of the Canon G9 to the Canon 5D.
So I picked up the Canon G9 as my little pocket photo companion. For fun, and out of curiousity, I wanted to do a completely unscientific test of the G9 compared to the 5D. I put my remote 580EX on a stand and alternated shooting between the G9 and the 5D using the Speedlight Transmitter from roughly the same spot.
The result are above. To see a higher resolution version of the photo, click here.
For web based imagery, the G9 seems to be a great solution for shooting in situations or environments where I just don't want to risk taking the 5D. At roughly $450 - $500 (you can find some sale pricing online), this is well worth the money. It also takes reasonably good video, which I'm pleased with.
Of course, it's not a 5D and never will be, but still a TON of fun.
