Hi I am n00b but planning to pursue photography as a hobby in my free time instead of playing games on pc. Will be starting out by taking classes from an experienced Pro. photographer. is Canon G9 good for my kind?? also suggest some other camera options in the same price range. I am not going SLR right now as I am not a Hardcore photographer yet. or shuld I?? But will only be able to afford the cheapest of the SLRs so please suggest good SLRs nearest in price to the G9.
