Summary: This item arrived on time and in working condition. PREAMBLE & RELIABILITY: I purchased this camera knowing full well the 50/50 chance that I was plunking down nearly $200 on a very good pocket megazoom or a paper weight.
Summary: I found the S9100 Nikon to have more good points than bad. The thing that gave me the biggest problem was the placement of the mic's on top. While making a movie I would sometimes get my finger over one of the mic's causing problems with the sound.
Summary: I've always used Canon camera but when the last one died I did a lot - and I mean a lot - of research. Besides the internet I talked to people who had a Nikon. This one had the best reviews and I can see why - I've done photography for 30+ years and this little camera has a lot of bells and...

Summary: I have this camera, and was getting frustrated like so many users about the blurry photos. My guess was that the same excellent lens that gives us 18x optical zoom is also finicky and hard to focus. Wrong. Now I'm consistently getting good clear shots, much faster than before.
Summary: I am setting up a store front on Etsy.com under TreasuringthePast and am allowed 5 pictures per item. The pictures I use on this site can make or break me, which is why I choose to upgrade my camera to the 9100. There's alot to learn, but still easy to use right out of the box.
Summary: I am a snapshot dad. I don't know ISO from metering, how to balance my white or choose my AF area. I know how to zoom in and out, point, push the shutter button half way down to let the camera focus and then pull the trigger. I also know what a clear, real-to-life picture looks like.
