Have you cleaned the sensor on your g9?
How did you do it?

Since the G9 does not have interchangeable lenses like an SLR, it is much harder for dust to get on the sensor. I do not believe there is any way to clean the sensor.

you would have to send it to canon... maybe your lens is dirty and not your sensor...

more than likely its the sensor. I think alot of members here will vouch for that. Even in the G10 it was a problem. Sending it to Canon is your best bet.
