GB Experienced amateur
I bought this to complement my m4/3 system. Having reduced the size of my camera system from my DSLR I needed a compact camera that was smaller but I didn't want to sacrifice quality with the smaller sensors. Ideally I would have had a viewfinder but in the interest of keeping the size as small as possible I decided to live without one. Fortunately I seem to be able to manage without a viewfinder so far. The one touch to boost the image brightness is handy and I can see to frame photos even in bright sunlight. The only thing I find a bit tricky is the level display is difficult to see in bright sunlight - I can see it but cannot see when it turns green. The row of bars on my Olympus is better in that respect.

Quality so far is excellent. I was worried about the touch screen (I hate phone touch screens) but I have taken to it very quickly. The programmable shortcuts help as well, particularly the one for deleting pictures.

I bought the Canon DCC-1890 case as well and it certainly is the smallest case you will find for the G9X. Be careful, a lot of places advertising G9X cases say they also fit the G7X so cannot be a good fit. A better picture on Canon's web site would be useful. They don't show the case open. The case has a cutout where the control ring is and a recess in the front flap as well so the extra thickness is minimal (normally you would end up with a double thickness of case on the front but not with this). There is a belt loop on the back.

I am not a tiny person but find it easy to grip and use. The touch screen controls are big enough to minimise accidentally touching the wrong thing. The control ring works well and I like the way a simple touch can switch it to exposure compensation from aperture for example in aperture priority. I am still experimenting to get the right "look" for the pictures so they match what I like. The Canon Photo Professional software looks useful and allows RAW processing as well, although I like to get good JPGs out of the camera.
1. the AF beep cannot be turned off - only by muting all sounds.
2. HDR mode is interesting but gives not control over setting such as aperture/ISO. You do get to choose the "type" of HDR though.
3. changing the AF size needs two steps - selecting the area first. Also, I would like multipoint AF without face tracking whereas you have single point or multi-point with face tracking.
4. a printed manual with the camera would have been nice.
5. close ups are only really close at wide angle (5cm). At the 84mm end the magnification is considerably lower due to the longer working distance. This is a common design compromise with compact cameras.

Middlesbrough GB Point & shoot
On one option it takes loads of different types of shots and filters ... it'll fill up your memory card quicker but it does get some quality shots
The touch screen can be annoying when your holding it and you take random pictures as you can tap the screen to take a picture ... first world problems I know
