  • Excerpt: I bought this camera almost 3 years ago for the pockatable 18X optical zoom.  My previous camera  only had a 10X zoom. It is fast, the image stabiliser works well and image quality is acceptable when in focus.  The LCD screen is excellent. The big and I mean very big problem is the focus.  IQ is irrelevant if the photo is out off focus! There are two situations where this camera has problems focusing. First outside at long distances with the zoom above 10X.

  • Summary: Directions for camera use drive me crazy but those on this particular camera are very user friendly for a novice and my pictures are fantastic. I really do love it!

Lousy camera

John M Brown, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: The camera is difficult to use. I have read many different articles on how to take good pictures. They still come out blurry. My older model worked much better and easier. I wouldn't recommend this camera to anyone.

Nice pics but too complicated for everyday use

  • Excerpt: I asked for a "simple" camera with video capabilities after our first son was born. My parents went above and beyond and bought this camera for us. No matter how hard I try I cannot seem to find a basic setting for everyday pictures. I am constantly missing great moments trying to find the right setting. Active toddlers and pets are blurry - particularly if they're in the same shot.

Takes Terrible Pictures & Breaks Easily.

J.J. Money, Amazon
19 July 2013
  • Summary: 1- Camera has always taken terrible pictures. a- They are slightly blurry and fuzzy. b- Even to get it to that point, you have to hold your breath and hold *perfectly* still for three seconds. c- Lighting has to be absolutely perfect (rare). d- On auto mode the pics are crap. e- Even if you mess with all the settings for each individual shot (who wants to waste time with that??), they are still bad. f- Back lighting or low light are huge problems.

zoom motor problems

kokana "kokana", Amazon
15 February 2013
  • Summary: I have had this camera long enough for it to be out of warranty but it hasn't been used very much nor mishandled but I started experiencing some locking up issues. Some of the pictures I took were good, others were just okay. But the final straw is that the camera would just quit working, the lcd screen still worked but none of the buttons would wake the camera up or turn it off. I found that I had to pop out the battery to make it turn off and start back up.

Excellent Features Despite Design Flaw Repair Potential

Andrew Johnson, Amazon
15 September 2012
  • Summary: This item arrived on time and in working condition. PREAMBLE & RELIABILITY: I purchased this camera knowing full well the 50/50 chance that I was plunking down nearly $200 on a very good pocket megazoom or a paper weight. The review I found at PCWorld.com of the top 10 pocket megazooms was glowing by virtue of the features packed into it for the price.

Nikon Camera 9100

C. Knisley "CDK", Amazon
11 September 2012
  • Summary: This is my second 9100. I gave my first one to my wife because of the quality of pictures and ease of use. As for Amazon it is by far the best to order items on line. My only complaint is that some of the companies linked to Amazon charge a fairly high handling charge for very small items. Amazon the main company is outstanding.

A total waste of money

Jan E. Lorah "EcoMuser", Amazon
11 July 2012
  • Summary: Beware of this Nikon Coolpix S9100 camera. I purchased one not even 7 months ago, and it has been broken (unusable) for most of that time. It freezes... w/ no response, at all. I paid to have it shipped back to Nikon for evaluation; they then told me I would have to pay $87 for repair -- not covered by warranty. Total for shipping and repair: $127, for a $200 camera. Then, not 1.5 months later, the same exact problem reoccurred.

  • Summary: The camera has met all my expectations. Even a complete camera clod like me can take great pictures with this smart camera. Get the memory card that is optional and this camera will be everything you'll ever need.
