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.
Summary: Outside of some design quibbles, the Nikon Coolpix S9700 puts big zoom power and nice photo quality (snugly) in your pocket.
Pros: The Nikon Coolpix S9700 is a 30x compact zoom that captures nice photos and video; it has very good shooting performance; and it has a full assortment of shooting modes from basic automatic to more creative options including full manual control.
Cons: The S9700's flash is poorly located, as are the stereo mics; Wi-Fi features are fairly limited compared with those in competing models; and battery life can be short if you do more than take photos.
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S9700 is – simply put – a joy to use. It's small and pocketable, but still has a ridiculously large zoom lens on it that can deal with any situation. Nikon are touting the S9700 as a perfect photographic travel accessory and we're inclined to agree.
Excerpt: Der er ikke så meget vrøvl med Coolpix S9700. Her får du et kamera, der er kompakt nok til at passe ned i lommen og er nemt at bruge. Uden nogen fiksfakserier. Det har 30x zoom – ligesom de andre – samt Wi-Fi med NFC, programhjul og en separat knap til video-optagelse.
Pros: Simpelt i brug og med en smart GPS-funktion, der gør det til et super rejsekamera.
Cons: Skudtakt og autofokus halter bagefter konkurrenterne, og billedkvaliteten er kun middelgod.
