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.

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. I convinced them that it was under warranty, but after the camera being in their hands for over 3 weeks, I still did not have a repaired camera. I expected the camera to last longer and to have better customer service for the 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. My only issue was that when you try to get creative with shots..it gets a little tricky since there isnt a manual focus. Overall, this is a great hassle free camera.

  • Summary: When camera works it takes great pics and videos. That is when it works. I have had numerous issues with this camera and Nikon Customer Support has been far less than helpful. The people I have dealt with in the Camera Dept at Walmart know more and help more than the Nikon people. Go buy another brand would be my suggestion.

Worked great for about 45 days

  • 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! 180 degree panaramic feature is easy to use and pictures turned out awesome! Never got the 360 feature to work, even used it on a tripod to no avail. Here's the kicker...

Love the camera but it FREEZES UP

LK, Amazon

  • 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. I need a camera for work that is reliable. I've treated this camera with kid gloves. Tomorrow I will return it for a full credit (I hope) & buy something else.

nikon coolpix s9100

Maurice N. Leibman, Amazon
13 August 2011
  • 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. I would not buy this camera for that alone. Too many other great choices available . Check out the Sony Cybershot, a better buy.

Consider S8100 instead

avgjoe, Amazon
12 August 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. The results looked ok on the camera's 3" screen but once loaded to my PC, poor focusing & fuzzy/soft edges were evident in almost every photo.

  • 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. In addition, for an unknown reason, CMOS rolling shutter effects (jello) become worst at the end of the zoom when shooting video.
