Sounds like a problem within the lens of the unit, might just be an imaging sensor. The best thing to do is to first try reseting the camera through the menu and place the top cover dials both to Auto. If that doesn't take care of the problem, you'll just need to have the camera serviced. The site that is great for the Powershot Models is: www.CamerasAndParts.com They only specialize in these Powershots, you'll want the distorted image service they have on their site for the G9. That takes care of any type of image issue on the camera just as you have. They tend to be the best deal plus they're service is wonderful. You'll pay $89 for the repair, all of the service for that model and the return shipping back to you included with them. They'd be the place for help with this one, best of luck.
You did not mention the make or model of the camera. Your symptoms seem to indicate you are using internal memory rather than the card. Card typically hold from 200-2,000 high quality photos (depending on the size of the card and the camera).
Another possibility is that you have a high end camera and are shooting in the RAW format. RAW is only for the more experienced users who post process their work. If this is the case switch to JPG.
Note reducing the picture size only makes the pictures lower quality and is only useful if you only post them on the web.
After only 15 days mine did the same thing. I called the dealer Olympus and they gave me a RAN number and told me where to send it. I got a call about a week later. They said because the camera had moisture inside I was not coverd. The best they would do is mail me a rebate card for 25 dollars off my next purchase. I was like WTF. The woman said sorry but that was all they could do. When I asked to speak to manager she hung up.
The problem is in your ISO. The camera has a terrible noise problem at anything over 100 ISO. I set my camera to 100 even when shooting in auto, and never use any other ISO setting - the results are just not worth it.
Hang in there. The camera is awesome and you will make friends with it. The settings are really not that complicated once you get used to them. Just decrease your shutter speed and increase your aperature (lowest number) when in low light conditions and watch the LCD until it looks good (you might have to half press the shutter to get a preview), until you get a bettter grasp of what those adjustments are doing for you. Good luck, Cindy
