Sometimes digital camera manufacturers actually listen to testers and users of digital cameras. In any case Canon did when developing the PowerShot G7. A terrific camera except for one minus; no RAW format was available and especially the photographer wanting a compact camera besides his DSLR was disappointed. But the successor, the Canon PowerShot G9, does offer RAW format making this top compact camera a very interesting one for the demanding and the professional photographer. Adding RAW format is not the only thing Canon has changed on the G9. The Canon G9 is now equipped with a new image sensor with 12 million pixels.

Canonís DIGIC III processor delivers responsive operation, improved color rendering and near-instant start-up time. The EOS Integrated Cleaning System combats sensor dust, while a strong magnesium alloy body with weather resistance ensures lasting durability.
The Canon booth at the PMA 2007 Las Vegas is as always overwhelmingly large and outsized. The Canon digital imaging booth is overcrowded and people are fascinated by the large series of compact camera models and of course the new race-monster, the world's fastest digital SLR camera; the Canon EOS 1D Mark III. The year 2007 is a brilliant year for Canon. Not only because Canon has conquered and still holds an important market share but also because it is exactly seventy years ago that the first Canon camera was born. It was the Canon S and the first one in a long array of successful cameras. Also the step from analogue to digital was carried out incredibly fast and on a professional level.
