Canon S5 vs G9 vs G7 vs Panasonic FZ18
I have been trying to figure out what P&S camera to get that both myself and my wife can use. Wife will only shoot in Auto or Program mode and me as a beginner would like to learn a bit more and eventually only use manual mode. My number 1 preferance is a good picture quality with a sharp image and good colours. I'll be of course using PS to fix the pictures but would like a camera that does a good quality pictures even without PS. I'll be using the camera both outdoor and indoor. What would you recommend. Is there any other cameras I should be looking into?..

What subjects will you be shooting and under what conditions...

G9 is the best among these. Sharpest lens, Raw mode, good IQ, build & handling.For macro shots (flower etc.) - A650IS (due to swivel LCD)..

I'll be mostly shooting pictures of my family and both indoor/outdoor events/activities..

In general use the G9 may have a slight edge in IQ but it's not so clear cut that features might not outweight the slight differences between the G9, S5 and FZ18 (in about that order.) For instance is 210mm equiv max telephoto (G9) enough for your indoor/outdoor events or do you need 432mm equiv (S5)? or 504mm (FZ18)? Do you need 28mm equiv. wide angle (FZ18) or is the 35-36mm of the Canons enough? If you need wider angle for the Canons are you willing to purchase/use their W/A converters to get into the mid-twenties..

How important is high ISO/noise performance? If thats very important then the G9 with it's 1/1.7 sensor is a bit better than the 1/2.5 sensors on the S5/FZ18..

Do you need an articulated LCDscreen?..

I think for my use the S5 is enough of a camera and I beleive the picture quality is pretty good as well. Thanks for the info and advice..
