  • Summary: Nikon's new Coolpix S9700 has the makings of an affordable all-around point-and-shoot. While it doesn't have the ultra zoom lenses of the P600 (60x) and the P530 (42x), it still boasts a whopping 30x optical zoom inside its petite shell, good for a 35mm equivalent of 25-750mm.
  • Pros: Extremely sharp images in most shooting conditions, even at full telephoto setting, Hybrid Vibration Reduction feature works very well, Versatile camera with plenty of useful features, 30x optical zoom lens is impressive in this thin of a camera, Shot-to-shot delays are minimal, Shutter lag is no...

Nikon Coolpix S9700 Review

23 May 2014
  • Conclusion: With a similar price tag, looks, and specs as the SX700, the S9700 is clearly a direct competitor. While we think the SX700 has a better image stabilization system, both cameras take good photos.
  • Pros: Good-looking images, 30x zoom lens, Built-in GPS
  • Cons: So-so OLED screen, Rudimentary Wi-Fi, Compression artifacts in Normal mode

  • Summary: Outside of some design quibbles, the Nikon Coolpix S9700 puts big zoom power and nice photo quality (snugly) in your pocket.

Nikon S9700 review

25 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Packing a 30x zoom lens into a camera that's small enough to slip into a jeans pocket is an amazing achievement. Nikon isn't the only manufacturer to have done this in the last 12 months, though, so the S9700 needs to do even more to stand out.
