    So, A new version every year. Though, last year there was a considerable upgrade this year there is a bit too.

    :thumbup:
    -High-Sensitivity 10 MP CCD & some HS system.
    -HD video @ 24 fps
    -Front dial
    -ISO increment in 1/3 steps
    -Upgraded IS
    -Electronic horizon indicator (always wished for this)
    -Multiple selectable image sizes available in 5 aspect ratios
    -In cam HDR (with a tri-pod though)
    -Manual control on highlight and shadow detail in jpgs

    :thumbdown:
    -Still no infinity focus option which even the IXUS series has.
    -15 sec limit on shutter (CHDK helps, may be a year down though)
    -Pop up flash, like the one on S90 or a centered flash would have been fab.
    -No time lapse movie mode
    -There are a couple input switches and dials, a little switch dedicated for metering, coupled either with the exposure compensation dial or placed on the left side the camera (which is bare at present, and left hand gets to play only with the EV swtich) would be neat.

    2.8 instead of 3, not a deal breaker, the swivel function def is a major plus advantage.
    though, I like all the buttons on the G9. Specially the ISO dial. And I cant do without a hot shoe at times when i can't ask people to stay still...fits comfortably in the pocket too. This seems like a worthy upgrade.

    Off topic: when reading Ken Rockwell, i either find myself confused or him confused.

    Why didn't they do 1080p video?
