Canon Powershot G9
I bought this camera some months ago and I'm very happy with it. Maybe it has more noise than I rather prefer, but in general, it's a good camera.
It has 12.1 MP, 4000x3000 pixels of photo. For uploading to DT I always shoot in it's widest resolution, and then in photoishop maybe reduce my 4000x3000 pixels photo, delete unwanted background,etc... or if the photo it
- Different shooting programs: Snow, Beach, Indoor, Foliage, Aquarium, Fireworks, Landscape, Underwater, Kids & pets, Night scene, Sports mode, Portrait mode, Stitch assist, Night snapshot
I always try to use Manual mode, but sometimes it's good to use one of this modes, 4example, I always shoot fireworks in "Fireworks mode" :)

If you want more articstic shots or play with the color
- Max Shutter Speed: 1/2500 sec
- Min Shutter Speed: 15 sec
If you have bad light and no tripod try to shoot at moreshutter speed you can, example, better 1/30 than 1/15 or 1/8
As less speed, more out of focus

I try to use always manual ;-)

If you manage well with PC and post editing, I strongly recommend always shoot in RAW
