Nice pics but too complicated for everyday use

supermiller, Viewpoints

  • 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.

"It freezes."

MarkNDark, CNET

  • Pros: Some photos are great, nice video also.
  • Cons: Unfortunatly this camera freezes, and the only way to un-freeze is to pull the battery out slightly for a re-boot. Very sad, since I paid $350 for my first Nikon camera and it is flawed. I googled and see many have this same problem.

  • 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.

Blurry, Blurry, Blurry

Marc Trevino, Amazon

  • 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. Color was always good, but the images were not crisp and clean. What do I mean by that?

Purchased and Returned Sadly

Vern Sahlyeh "Dirty Vern", Amazon

  • 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. I was looking for portability, mega zoom, image quality and basically something all around and fun. I am a current owner of a Nikon D90 and several other point and shoots varying in zoom, portability and functionality and I am tired of juggling cameras and lenses.

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. 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.

Super camera for carrying around and getting great photos

sydneyaz, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: I am already a Nikon user. I've enjoyed my P80 but it is too large to fit easily into my carry-on airline bag and also heavy for carting along on hikes. The S9100 has the same 18X optical zoom for excellent photos that the P80 has. I have taken wildlife photos with fully extended lens and was able to crop it into a clear photo. Other photos, including close-up flower photos are exceptionally clear.

  • Summary: It's an ORDINARY point and shoot machine. It emulates 18X. All results are fogy -a strange soften Photoshop effect- Beyond 10X is heavily shaky. It's not ergonomic, neither shutter button nor video record button. It's not clear it's recording or not. It's SLOW. Very slow. It's USB socket is rare version micro-USB. You have to carry that cable everywhere. It has a lithium battery without external charger. Battery display is not informative; it only displays FULL or LOW.
  • Pros: Nothing.
  • Cons: Many things.

  • Summary: non è la prima volta che mi capita con la nikon lo zoom si inceppa. Ho provato a tenerla comunque spegnendo e riaccendendo ad ogni blocco, ma dopo un anno si è completamente bloccata in qls funzionalità. Un vero disastro.
