Nikon COOLPIX S9600 the Worst Camera I have ever had in my life!
26 May 2015
Summary: No wonder Nikon discontinued this camera. The Nikon CoolPix S9600 is the worst camera I have ever owned in my life. Forget about clear pictures. This camera specializes in blurry pictures. If I take 50 pictures of one event, I am lucky if one or two pictures are clear.

Summary: Seldom write reviews but after seeing the ones here and being amazed by this camera - here goes. I have had other brands of Point and Shoot cameras thru the years and have a digital Nikon D-70 SLR. The picture quality and especially video and low light capabilities are amazing.
Summary: Bought it today. Taking it back tomorrow. 1. Couldn't register the camera on the Nikon web site. Website indicated error on data input, but did not say where. 2. The camera comes with a "quickstart" 42 page instruction document.
Summary: I actually bought this camera several months ago for $199 brand new, and put an 8 gig memory chip inside ($12). I would call myself an experienced amateur photographer, I have owned many 35mm and 6x6 cameras, but my favorite pocket film camera died and I wanted a digital.
Summary: Note. Just looked at this at Best Buy 10/21/14 for $249.00. There's does not come with a Flash Card and only one battery and charger. They want you to buy the bundle : case, extra battery and Card for $50. If you opt not to, but want an extra battery they run like $40. Just thought you should know.
Excerpt: I returned the camera. I am back to pulling the SD card to transfer files to my Windows PC. Was this review helpful? |
Pros: I did not keep it long enough to form a negative feel for the cameras basic functions. It was better than my Galaxy S5 camera. The zoom was the biggest positive difference, but I found 22x optical zoom still was not enough for me. The menu , and functions were straight forward. The camera was eas...
Cons: I purchased this camera mainly for the ease of transferring files through WIFI. I discovered the WIFI was only to a smart device, one picture at a time, and it did not transfer videos. I assume if it did transfer video the storage in the smart device storage would needed to be quite massive. I ha...
