Not as good as expected

John S, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: Lot's of technology in this. Case seems cheaply made, to cut on costs. Do not like the pop up flash (preferred the built in of my old Lumix), particularly as it pops up right where I usually put my left index finger. Standard pictures are generally good. But the flash, at shorter ranges, frequently leaves the picture over exposed. Have had some issues with focus and sharpness, beyond what would be normally expected, on higher zoom shots.

VERY Fragile

BaltimoreSteve, Nikon

  • Summary: I really liked the features that the 9500 offered - I replaced my 9100 with this camera to get a longer lens, better resolutioin, and the GPS / Wifi features are excellent.

Odd focusing in low light

Donna Visocan, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: I've owned several Nikon Coolpix cameras and wanted this one for its high zoom capability. Unfortunately, the camera's inability to focus on things in low light caused me to return this one. I also did not like the pop-up flash which was located exactly where you hold the camera. This camera might be suitable for someone who wants to adjust settings, but if you are looking for a true point and shoot that auto focuses quickly, this is not the camera for you.

  • Summary: It does not have the continuous picture feature that is on the S9300. I am going to try it again a few times and may then return it to you for reimbursement.

Firmware update could make this camera great!

Vinoh, Nikon
18 May 2013
  • Summary: In the couple of weeks I've had the camera, I've really enjoyed it. In good light, it takes great pictures with vibrant colors and the flash works very well. The menu system is well designed which provides easy access to all of the camera's functions. I especially like the GPS features and panorama and 3D modes. Of course, the 22x zoom is great.

Focus problems in low light

S. Pollock, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: When I first got the camera, I really liked it. * The zoom lens is excellent, I got some nice shots of birds and buildings * The macro works well; got nice shots of wildflowers; great color, etc. * The panorama feature worked well about 50% of the time. However, when I tried to use it indoors after a while I went from happy to frustrated quickly.

Problem?

EK, Nikon
30 March 2013
  • Summary: The camera is great in almost every way. It takes beautiful pictures from very far away in low light, etc... The problem is that the WiFi stops working after a little while. I bought one and had to return it two weeks later because the WiFi stopped working. I exchanged it for another one. Now 3 weeks later the same exact problem happened again. I am hoping the store exchanges it again as it is more than 30 days since the original purchase.
