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.
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.
Summary: My camera was just over 30 days old when the lens failed. Had to send for repair and now, 9 months later, the lens is going again. Customer svc won't help..tells me they ..." legally cannot change the terms of our warranty"! What BS!! Worst customer svc ever! They obviously don't care about their customers. If I decide to go for another repair, it will cost me about $100! No way will I pay for yet another defective lens! I will never buy a Nikon again.
disappointed with my Nikon camera & Nikon customer service

Summary: I bought my Nikon camera at the end of February 2012 and took it on vacation in mid May 2012. The camera stopped working in the first week of my vacation. I returned the camera to Nikon on June1 2012. It is now July 23, 2012 and the camera remains at Nikon waiting for parts. Numerous phone calls to Nikon have not solved the problem. They are "waiting for parts". I believe by this time they should have sent me a new camera. I will NEVER buy another Nikon product.
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.
Returning it - defective - Nikon quality control out of control.

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.
Summary: When is the camera coming? I ordered it a couple of weeks ago, and it shows that it still hasn't shipped. Luckily, I did get the case immediately, so it can sit on my desk while I wait for the camera - NOT! The product page shows that you can still order the camera - for $20 more than I paid on the Daily Deal. So are they holding up my order while they fulfill more lucrative orders? Hmmm.
Summary: Very poor focus issues, and the ISO range is pathetic. Returned for full refund. Couldn't take a clear shot in daylight it couldn't focus in low light even with the focus sensor. I expected more from Nikon.
Summary: I bought this camera despite the negative reviews because it had features that I wanted. I took a gamble an lost BIG time. This is literally the worst purchase I have ever made. The pictures are blurry if not bright light and half the time I have to turn the camera on and off over and over again to even get it to focus. Please trust the negative reviews and do not buy!
freezes up in zoom and takes blurry shots (UPDATED with info on how to send back to Nikon)

Summary: Purchased camera in the BLACK style in April (before most of the bad reviews) and THREE weeks later this camera started freezing when I zoom in for a shot. Not every time, but enough to not "trust" this camera. Yes, removing the battery puts it back in operation, like a "ctrl-alt-delete" type of restart.
