  • Summary: My Nikon Coolpix S9100 review shows a camera that is a nice model with a feature you don't see every day: An 18X optical zoom lens inside a relatively small camera body. This type of telephoto power is really rarely found in a camera that measures only 1.4 inches in thickness, as does the S9100.

  • Summary: The Nikon COOLPIX S9100 is a compact super-zoom with an impressive 18x optical zoom range. In that respect it's well out in front of the competition, with the Panasonic Lumix TZ20 / ZS10 and Sony Cyber-shot HX9V offering a 'mere' 16X range and the Canon PowerShot SX230 'only' 14x.
  • Pros: 18x Nikkor optical zoom., 1080p30 HD video., Good range of fast burst modes., Easy panorama mode.
  • Cons: No GPS., Lacks manual exposure control., Effects filters are a bit tired., No stabilisation for movies.

Nikon COOLPIX S9100 Review

What Digital Camera
8 June 2011
  • Summary: An element of performance worthy of note is the camera’s slow start-up. This will no doubt be frustrating for those wanting to shoot in an instant, but can reasonably be attributed to the camera’s large focal range.
  • Pros: Large focal range, striking LCD, HD video capture
  • Cons: Lack of manual controls and RAW, plasticky body, slow start up

  • Excerpt: I make no apologies for reviewing this humble compact digicam – the Nikon Coolpix S9100 – in amongst the heavy hitting DSLRs and maxi-zoom models. Why? ‘Cos it has a few features the DSLRs do not have.

  • Conclusion: On paper, the Nikon Coolpix S9100 has a lot going for it: 12-megapixel BSI CMOS imager, wide-angle 18x zoom and full HD video. Yet these theoretical terms did not translate to the greatest photos and videos in the real world.
  • Pros: 12-megapixel BSI CMOS imager, 18x wide-angle zoom (25-450mm), Large, hi-res LCD performs well in bright light, Full HD videos (1920 x 1080 at 30 fps), Backlight HDR for expanded dynamic range
  • Cons: Images not super sharp at full zoom, Few manual adjustments (forget aperture, shutter speed), No optical image stabilization

  • Summary: Nikon produces another solid point-and-shoot compact megazoom with the Coolpix S9100 by offering fast performance, good photos, and an excellent feature-to-price ratio.
  • Pros: The Nikon Coolpix S9100 has fast shooting performance, a wide, long lens in a pocketable body, and several useful and fun shooting modes.
  • Cons: The Coolpix S9100's photo and video quality is soft, particularly at high ISOs and in low-light conditions. It also lacks auto picture rotation.
