    Wow, he has some great ones! Looks like it is the ISO (part of the learning process) as several reviews mentioned that specific drawback, but still gave the camera a 'best in class'. Thanks for your input! Next one up (after the hurricanes pass) will be a lot cleaner. One neat feature I found about the camera is the ability to do time lapse video of 1-2 second delays. Pretty neat for easy stop action maybe!

    This dude shoots all his panos with a G9 and they all look fantastic: www.gigapan.org/viewProfile.php?use rid=3134

    google search for 'PSG9_CUG_EN.pdf' which is the instruction manual and then search for noise. You will find a number of pages that describe how to reduce noise. Its a lot easier finding info in a digital manual versus a paper manual. You have a fine camera... keep it! Number one for shooting panos is to always select your *lowest* available ISO.

    Hi Tex, That's what I thought too, just got the camera yesterday and there is nothing in the manual or settings that I could find since it seemed like noise reduction would be a standard feature on a $400 model. It is possible that I missed something somewhere and will keep trying to improve quality. I got the camera to do Gigapans with and am somewhat disappointed at this stage. Shooting at a very low 80-100 ISO seems to reduce the problem significantly though. David

    check the forum and search for g9... I am considering buying a g9. Is there not a setting on the g9 to reduce noise? I have that setting on my Leica.
