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.

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.

"The reviews didn't prepare me - look elsewhere."

videoismylife, CNET
23 November 2012
  • Pros: 1. It was cheaper than most pocket zooms (but for a reason) 2. Quite a brick in the hand - felt solid 3. Fast "on". 4. Menu system better than average. 5. Pretty screen - but it didn't help see image flaws.
  • Cons: 1. Excessive, destructive noise reduction. 2. Poor auto-exposure; chooses 1/10s but IS can't handle it. 3. Features like panorama don't work well. 4. Heavy, large, corners too sharp - not a "pocket zoom" 5. IS can't handle 18X; blurry.

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.

"Freezes after a period of time"

gecrash, CNET
4 July 2012
  • Pros: Good shots when carrying a DSLR and a bag of lenses is inconvenient
  • Cons: Freezes up requiring the battery to be removed in order to reset, eventually just dies altogether.

Returning it - defective - Nikon quality control out of control.

Consumer, Amazon
27 February 2012
  • Summary: This camera has great features and takes excellent photos in daylight and very good ones in low light. The panorama feature works perfectly. However, there are two issues with this unit that caused me to return it. Amazon did not offer an exchange for some reason (out of stock maybe??). Defects: 1. There is a small bubble near the center of every photo in every zoom range.
