Nikon Coolpix S9

Digital Photography Interface
7 September 2009
  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S9 is a small, stylish and affordable camera. A 3X zoom lens is self-contained in the camera and the 2.5 inch LCD on the back offers good resolution and viewing. Unfortunately, that LCD previewing won't last long without a viewfinder and below average battery life. Performance was just average - unless you're a sports shooter or used faster cameras (like Canon or Panasonic) before, you won't mind.
  • Pros: 3X internal zoom lens, Stylish design, Good LCD visibility and resolution, Tolerable (Average) performance, Nice movie mode, Good image quality with low noise, Affordably priced
  • Cons: Below average battery life, Limited continuous shooting, Plastic tripod mount, tiny buttons, No manual controls, No exposure info or histograms, Redeye, corner softness and color fringing, No movie optical zoom

  • Excerpt: Nikon Coolpix S9 has a slim, stylish, metal design and fits easy in all pockets. By featuring One-Touch Portrait Button (automatically activates In-Camera Red-Eye Fix and Face-Priority), Face-Priority AF , D-Lighting (improves brightness and details where needed), In-Camera Red-Eye Fix and BBS – Best Shot Selector , Nikon technology improves your photos automatically with no need of extra work, thing that also makes the camera easy to use.

  • Summary: An affordably-priced slimline digicam for snapshooters and travellers.At $150 less than the Coolpix S8, Nikon's Coolpix S9 looks like a good buy. Although its sensor resolution is lower, at 6-megapixels it is still high enough for snapshots, which will be the main application for this camera. Both cameras have 3x optical zoom lenses, although the S8 covers a slightly wider angle of view.

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S9 would make a perfect Christmas gift for the snap-shooter in your family, but if you're a more serious photographer you probably wouldn't rush out and buy one for yourself. The two words that best sum-up the S9 are "stylish" and "adequate". The "S" in Nikon Coolpix S9 stands for "Style", and this camera certainly delivers on that promise.

  • Summary: Die Coolpix S9 von Nikon ist eine sehr solide Ultrakompaktkamera. Allerdings reicht die Lichtempfindlichkeit nicht aus, die Bildstabilisierung fehlt und die Rauschleistung ist schlecht – somit ist die S9 sicherlich nicht erste Wahl.
  • Pros: relativ günstiger Preis für eine Ultrakompaktkamera, attraktives Design, Benutzerfreundlichkeit
  • Cons: keine manuelle Belichtungseinstellung, die Lichtempfindlichkeit reicht nur bis ISO 400, Bildrauschen bei ISO 200 und ISO 400

  • Excerpt: La COOLPIX S9 è stata realizzata per soddisfare il vostro gusto per gli oggetti di classe e dare sfogo alla vostra passione nell’esprimervi per immagini. Il caratteristico design a superfici ondulate cattura lo sguardo mentre cogliete l’attimo e lo fermate con colori fedeli e chiarezza cristallina aiutati dal generoso sensore da 6.1 megapixels e dall’ottica Zoom-Nikkor 3x di precisione.
