CNET

  • 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.

What Digital Camera

  • Excerpt: With an 18x optical zoom and 12MP backlit CMOS sensor the COOLPIX S9100 hints at being a serious compact. But how does it shape up when put to the WDC test?

Nikon Coolpix S9100 Review

Digital Photography School

  • 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.

Nikon Coolpix S9100 Review

Digitaltrends
10 May 2011
  • 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

Digital Photo Review: Nikon Coolpix S9100 point-and-shoot

Macworld
22 April 2011
  • Excerpt: (1 items) The Nikon Coolpix S9100 is a camera that seemingly achieves the impossible on several fronts. First on that list of surprises is its 18X zoom lens, which matches the optical reach of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10 at the top end of the pocket-megazoom market. It also serves up stunning image quality for its reasonable $330 price: In our subjective tests, the S9100's photos were on a par with those of much higher-priced cameras such as its sibling, the Nikon...
  • Pros: Very good macro capabilities, 18X-optical-zoom lens, Large array of useful and creative scene modes, In-camera editing features improve low-light shots, Superior image quality, Extremely easy to use, Excellent performance for the price, Light and slim for such a long-zoom camera
  • Cons: No Raw shooting mode, No manual controls

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
