I Need a Camera – STAT

As you may or may not know I dropped my camera at BlogHer and I am now in desperate need of a new one.

You see, I’m going to a wedding this weekend. This guy’s wedding.

I can only imagine that there will be plenty of photo opportunities that I would hate to miss.

I’m thinking about getting the Canon G9. Do any of you have one of these? Do you love it? Hate it? Have a better idea? Have a camera that I can borrow?

  1. I shoot Canon and although I’ve never used a G9, I’ve heard great things. Not a tiny camera, but takes great pictures.

  2. We have three, you are welcome to one, although Chris probably won’t agree to part with the big one.

  3. I am a Nikon girl, but I have heard good things about the G9 — looks like a good point and shoot to me!

  4. I have a Canon PowerShot A550 and I loves it.

  5. As a pro photog, I only use Canon, although I haven’t used the G9 specifically. Looking at your amazon.com link, I’d trust the 239 people who rated it to be 4.5 stars. Sounds like a good choice.

  6. If I was going to spend 480 dollars on a camera, I’d splurge and get the Rebel for 100 more… or the Nikon D40 which is 470 at Amazon.

    But maybe you’re looking for a point and shoot? In which case I love my Kodak Z612 and imagine that they’re newer models are just as awesome…

  7. I’ve dinked around with Olympus and Sony but should have stuck to my Nikon roots. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my D40.

  8. I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ4, and I like it

  9. I had to send my camera in for repair right before my best friends wedding. I asked the Geek Squad at Best Buy if they rented cameras. The guy told me most people just buy a camera and then return it when they get theirs back. Problem is, Best Buy charges a 20% restocking fee. I went to Walmart, who does not have a restocking fee, told them my intentions (I felt guilty not being honest) and they were like, that’s fine. You have 90 days to return it. 90 days?

  10. Tell Mark congrats for me

  11. What about Polaroid? Just don’t shake the pictures, it makes the colors run.

  12. I have a KonicaMinolta, but I think someone stepped on it during our last vacation, and it did some weird shaky stuff for a while. Other than that, I love it.

  13. I have a cannon EOS Rebel and I love it BUT it is pricey. (I think mine came from Costco and was around 7-800$) All of the auto functions are awesome and you can grab it and go-no learning a bunch of stuff for the auto functions. However it can do a bunch of other stuff that I have yet to learn about. It is heavy and bulky-not the kind of camera that you can drop in your purse and go. All of that said I get some GREAT shots-including my husband landing a marlin yesterday.Yee Haw!

  14. I have a G7 (the G9’s predecessor), and I love, love, love it. It takes really good pictures, despite my limited skill.

  15. Dude, get the Fujifilm SBQ-35F. Don’t settle for less!

  16. I have two Canons — a tiny Powershot, and a Rebel XSi. They’re both great! Ask somebody to take photos for you & share…

  17. I have this sweet cardboard camera you can have.

  18. I’m a Nikon girl myself and know nothing about Canon. I also am not a big fan of point & shoots. But I would highly recommend a Nikon D80 or D40 if you don’t mind something a little bigger. You get used to the size and those are really light compared to the ones I shoot with!

  19. I have the original G1 and love it. Have had it since 2001! Recently switched to a SD850 for its smaller size and after 7 years and a gazillion pictures the battery in my G1 was going bad. For point and shoots, I’d stick with Canon.
