Summary: Great camera if you can spend hours learning about settings and take a photography course online. Otherwise pictures are always blurry you can't use autofocus like other point and shoot cameras and expect good clear pictures. So I just take a bunch of pics and play with different settings and occasionally get a decent shot. Video works great.

Summary: takes nice pictures and is small enough to carry around without any trouble. I dislike the spinning setting button/disc. It is right where you hold the camera and is so very easy to move. I have ruined many once in a life time pictures by not knowing I have "bumped" it and changed a setting. Otherwise I have been pretty happy with this camera.
Summary: I only used this camera twice! Then, when I tried to use it a third time, it will not focus at all. According to the forums that are out on the web, Nikon has a lot of issues with this. Not only with my s9200 model. But with most common Coolpix models. But I was smart a purchased a two year replacement warranty. I am only 7 months into the warranty, so I will be looking to get something else.
Summary: I'm not a professional by any means but I like this camera for the most part. My only real (and biggest) issue is that I got this camera specifically because I wanted to be able to take pictures of moving people and subjects without much blur, I got the opposite with this. Even taking a picture of an inanimate object comes out blurry no matter what setting I try. Maybe it's something I'm doing wrong but I've tried everything.
Summary: I previously had a Nikon S9100. I dropped it (only about 2 feet onto a grassy surface) and parts started rattling around inside. Totally broken. Admittedly my fault for dropping it...but not very durable considering I only dropped it about 2 feet and on to a grassy surface as well. Not worth the expensive to send it in to fix. "Upgraded" to the Nikon S9200. Hate is a strong word...but I really dislike this camera. The 9200 takes poor clarity photos..
Summary: This camera worked in the beginning and then stoped focusing properly on photo and video function. Sign of low battery would appear right after charging it! After a while could not turn it on. The lens closure stayed half open/close. Very unreliable product. Not recommended. A special price offer is never good if the product does not work properly.
Summary: Took this Camera to Spain and got great shots. The CMOS processor made shooting in low light possible. The zoom is amazing. If this was a camera of just a few months ago with that kind of zoom it would never fit in your pocket.
