Nikon Coolpix S9100 - digital camera

CNET
14 August 2011
  • 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.

Nikon COOLPIX S9100

Camera Labs

  • 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. Where those models opt for lens-shift image stabilisation, the COOLPIX S9100 shifts the sensor to combat camera shake.
  • 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. Also, once the camera is up and running it’s generally speedy in use – AF is both fast and accurate while the COOLPIX S9100 travels through the focal range at a reasonable pace.
  • 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.

Digitaltrends

  • 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. Heavily-zoomed images just weren’t super sharp, and this is probably due to this camera’s stabilization system. We really liked the 5-way VR in Nikon’s P100 using OIS, and it should be used here.
  • 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

Nikon COOLPIX S9100 review: A compact camera with an 18x zoom and a good CMOS sensor

Good Gear Guide.au
15 August 2011
  • Summary: Nikon's COOLPIX S9100 is well built and it has a massive 18x zoom lens. It can take clear and vibrant pictures, but because it lacks manual controls it can sometimes struggle in challenging lighting conditions. Overall, though, it's not a bad camera at all for a user who wants something automatic.
  • Pros: 25-450mm zoom lens, clear and vibrant image quality, easy to operate
  • Cons: Sometimes struggles in tough lighting conditions, lacks manual controls
