Ooops

Overstock
21 December 2007
  • Summary: I thought I would luck out on this purchase but, so far, not the case. Camera looks GREAT but doesn't give me photos anywhere close to my other CoolPix - which I gave my daughter. Battery does not hold a charge and the pictures i get for the most part are blurry and unprintable. Want to return it but am thinking I am past deadline. May call to find out. Not a good experience.

Red-eye reduction doesn't work!

Word Sorceress, Amazon
10 December 2007
  • Summary: I chose this camera specifically because of the advertised in-camera red-eye reduction fix. I have a new baby and like any proud parent, take loads of photos of him. It is a pain to have to fix the red-eye manually in Photoshop, but at the same time I don't want to lug around (or learn how to use) an SLR type camera. I thought the Coolpix S9 would be the solution to my problems.

Not as good as Canon

William Levin, Amazon
10 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought the Nikon Coolpix S9 as a replacement for my Canon PowerShot S410 because I wanted a lighter, less bulky ultra-compact camera with good picture quality. The S9 was the one of the lightest, and earlier versions of the Coolpix family received decent reviews. While the camera is light and fits nicely in my pocket, I must say I was not pleased with the quality of the photos I took with the Nikon Coolpix S9.

  • Summary: It may be that I have not studied the Guide to Digital Photo enough, but I am having difficulty in several areas. The camera often does not stay on long enough for me to get set and focused. It bright light, it does beautifully. Inside, I expected the flash to kick in and give me an even clear picture. It doesn't. Or hasn't. Maybe the operator - me.

If new great camera rebuilt don't buy

Overstock
23 October 2007
  • Summary: I bought this camera to take on vacation, and it is not living up to my expectations as of yet. I will say when I can get it to take pictures it takes great ones. Just don't try to take them one right after another. This camera also has a mind of it's own, and will take pictures when it feels like it, even if you don't hit the flash button. I will send it back for a new one when I get back from my vacation. This thing really stinks. Sorry but true.

Un compromesso verso il basso

Ursulaeffe, Ciao
29 November 2007
  • Summary: Ho acquistato questa macchina fotografica perché avevo bisogno di una fotocamera da poter portare sempre con me senza grandi ingombri. La macchina è molto carina e ha un display più che soddisfacente considerando le dimensioni generali. L'obiettivo è necessariamente molto piccolo e ciò limita molto la fotocamera in ambienti non molto illuminati. Per "ambienti non molto illuminati" mi riferisco anche soltanto agli interni di un appartamento con luce artificiale.
  • Pros: compattezza, design
  • Cons: fotografie d'interni appena sufficienti
