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.
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.
Summary: We bought this camera last year right before Christmas. It is okay outside, but terrible inside. If there is the slightest movement the pictures are blurry. We have tried all different settings with the same result and are very unhappy with the product.
Summary: CONS: I just dropped this camera ONCE and now when you push the ON button you can no longer see the image that you are about to take. This has been the only accident and there it goes, I can no longer see anything on the screen. This camera also blurs very easily, but you can get use to it.
Summary: I purchased a Nikon for my first camera, I just loved how you can take it anywhere, fits handy in your pocket and perfect size. I couldn't wait to take pictures but soon realized that the picture quality was great but as soon as the battery hit low the camera refused to hold my photo's.
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)...
Summary: I really liked this camera.........cool looking, easy to use, and it takes great photos with natural light.......... But when you turn out the lights and need to use the flash......well just like many people here will tell you(read reviews for coolpix s5, this camera has same issues).........
