zoom motor problems

  • 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.

Poor repair service from Nikon

Sharyn M. Sweeney, Amazon

  • Summary: I loved using this camera until it started to over expose and take blurry shots after only 500 pictures. I sent it to Nikon for repair and was initially told it would be about $100 to repair.

Great Camera..well it was.

  • Summary: This camera is very easy to use and takes amazing pictures. You can select scene settings and picture modes or you can let the camera select them automatically. The macro feature takes great close up shots. Even low light shots turn out great without using the flash. The optical zoom is awesome.

  • Summary: Purchased this camera before trip to Alaska as an upgrade from a previous Coolpix model which still works and we are pleased with. We wanted this camera for the added zoom, quality and added features. The Alaska pictures turned out great!

Love the camera but it FREEZES UP

  • Summary: I bought this camera from a NYC shop this Spring. It worked great for a few weeks, then froze up. Went through tech assistance - ended up sending camera back & getting a replacement. I like this camera, it's so compact, easy to use, takes great photos & HD video, but now it's FROZEN UP again. Grrr.

nikon coolpix s9100

Maurice N. Leibman, Amazon

  • Summary: All the new point and shoot cameras are really good , but one of the most important features , and to me, the most important, is the lag time between taking the shot and the shutter closing. IT IS TOO SLOW !! Of all the reviews I read , only one mentioned this and I did not pay attention.

User Review

hamdo, DP Review

  • Excerpt: Although still pictures look good, ergonomic is fine and response is fast, that camera can not be used as a "travel zoom" camera if you consider also taking video as well as stills. Problems: Poorly implemented electronic image stabilization in video.

Blurry, Blurry, Blurry

  • Summary: S9100 has a nice long zoom, shoots really fast, and has a very nice monitor. But what good is all that if the quality of the pictures are poor? The majority of pictures taken on my Nikon Coolpix S9100 were disappointingly blurry, soft and/or out-of-focus. Not sure what the correct "term" is.

Purchased and Returned Sadly

  • Summary: First of all I have to say I did not purchase the camera from Amazon, rather from my local Best Buy. After reading all of the reviews here and in other areas of the web world, I decided to give it a try.

Consider S8100 instead

avgjoe, Amazon
13 March 2011
  • Summary: The specs for the S9100 looked promising but it produced fuzzy and often out of focus still pictures making it unacceptable. In the end, I found the Nikon S8100 to have superior picture quality. I started by taking 50 or so pictures in a variety of setting using the S9100's default settings.
