Summary: I wanted a small camera that I could easily carry in a pocket but still get reasonable quality images. This camera does what I wanted it to do and seems to do it well. I've gotten spoiled by my D200 and Nikon V1 as to what they will do but neither is a pocket camera and this one can be along with me as easily as my cell phone and it takes much better photos than my cell phone does. I like the wide range of the zoom lens and the sensitivity of the sensor.
Summary: this camera was a replacement for a 1 1/2 y.o. Lumix DMC-SZ1 with 10x optical zoom and 14 mp. the lumix developed dark spots on the sensor that showed up on bright images so it was retired. as a comparison, the nikon is a bit thicker but about the same length and width which is nice for a pocket camera. the display is good and controls are simple and easy to use.
Summary: This camera is very similar to the Fuji F770 except for the GPS which is on the S9300. The thing I like is the dynamic range of the pictures. I don't like the flash that pops up in some modes any time in low light. I harder to handle than the Fuji and the mode selector is so easy to change that it changes just with a nudge of your finger. Like I was at the cemetery doing findagrave stuff and I had changed the mode from auto to soft mode.
Summary: Got the 9200 for a friend, testing out right now so I can teach him how to use it. Took a few pictures while I'm at it, works fine. Pros: -price at $123.45 is darn cheap for a Nikon. -size pretty small to think it can do 18x zoom. -Screen very sharp. -Speed Fast shutter speed. Cons: -Charger is weird can only charge with the Nikon charger and not with other USB chargers.
Summary: First things first !!! The two best things I liked about this camera are whopping 18X optical zoom and the 1080p HD movies it shoots. Being a hobbyist photographer, I myself own a Nikon D7000 with a couple of lenses which I use every time I try my hands on photography. Wanted to buy an easy to use point-and-shoot for a friend. Being a Nikon fan for life, my work on selecting the manufacturer was cut short.
Summary: The S9200 Nikon camera is a great value for all the features you receive. The quality is as good as any I have seen in a non SLR camera. The user controls are easy to locate and understand. The features give you everything you need including great video along with the best MP level for this type of camera. The camera also has a great zoom, again one of the best in a non SLR or changeable lens camera. Excellent for a point and shoot camera, easy to carry.
Summary: Great camera, great price. This camera takes great pictures, portraits land scapes. Two issues, when you turn it on. Your hand easily blocks the flash, so you have to be carful how you hold it. Secondly, you need to either read the manual or practice shootings learning the Iso's and settings. Or you can just put it in auto focus and shoot. Professional shots right out of the box!
Excerpt: The Nikon s9200 creates awesome, high-quality pictures! I love this camera and it’s one of the best that I’ve used. This is actually the highest megapixel model that I’ve used. It’s a 16 megapixel and I’m quite impressed. If you’re looking to buy it, you’ll likely have to pay between 150 and 180 dollars. I purchased it through Amazon and they currently have it listed for 170. I actually believe the price is a bargain.
