Summary: This camera is the best I have ever used in the work I do. Light weight, fits in purses, pockets etc., I searched for a long time and found it on amazon with the best price and very easy to use even to downloading photos its so easy using Picture Perfect. Great Camera, sorry to hear they don't make this camera any More.
Summary: I was waiting for this camera to get here ASAP, and it did! Everything came as described. I only use this camera for Stop-Motions, and its very hard to find a Nikon camera with Stop-Motion Movie mode on it, and I'm glad I found this camera for under a hundred.
Summary: terrible. Takes horrible pix - and have tried fiddling with all the different settings. Has a quirk that causes it to freeze up so you have to pop the battery out to make it work again. Couldn't get a sharp picture to save my life and there is a terribly long delay before the picture actually takes - huge loss for wanting to take pix of our newborn.
Summary: I am holding a great paper weight. A 270 dollar camera that broke with no reason to break. This camera looks like it just came out of the box. The camera's menu suddenly stopped working, and the picture of the menu distorts and flickers. The buttons do nothing, and the only way to turn it off is by removing the battery. Nikon will fix it for [...]. Not worth it.
Summary: This is the 2nd Nikon Coolpix I've owned; the 1st needed to be replaced after a years use when the plastic cover for the battery compartment broke. I love the size of this S9 - easy to pack into a purse or pocket and I found it to be fairly intuitive to use. I love these smaller point and shoot digital cameras since I like to carry one around at all times in case some interesting photo op comes along.
