If you're clumsy and want to drop your camera in the water a bunch of times then, yes. If you want great pictures, then no! The G9 (and newer G10) are still some of the best point and shoot cameras around. There are a couple of companies that are making great competitors to the G9 but its still the top of the Canon line!!

Then I think I'll keep both my G9 and money safely in my pocket :-)

Hi Guys,

I have a Canon G9 like Vinovat and am taking it travelling with me, my question is would you buy an additional lens for the G9 for better scenary shots, like the wide conversion lens? and/or the Tele conversion lens?
Thanks Reply to this

Most people I know who use the G9 use it as is, e.g. without any additional lens accessories. Some pros I know who use this as a fun backup to a DSLR use a lens grip which allows a user to hold the lens like you would on a DSLR. I found one on the internet here: Lens Grip

My thought is that an additional lens accessory would put more (& cheaper) glass between you and your picture. I have long been told that this is a bad thing and to try to avoid it.

That's my two cents!

Great, thanks for your reply Mike, appreciated. I'm now just wondering if I should leave my G9 at home and buy a better camera, although the G9 is great I have seen others with bigger cameras with bigger lenses and possibly getting an SLR, obviously thats a lot bigger and the point of buying the G9 was that it was small. Can I ask what camera you use and do you find that adequate for your travel pics?

This sounds like a great topic for another discussion. Look out for a post I'll start in a few minutes.
