Terrible camera - failed within 2.5 months of purchase.

Paul A. Newman, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Bought this in October 2014 and the view screen failed in early January 2015. Now the camera won't even turn on. Of course, it's beyond the return date. I would rate the image quality as fair, not much better than my old Panasonic Lumix. Albeit, better than my iPhone 5. Occasionally the lens would get "stuck" and wouldn't properly retract. I would remove the battery, wait 20 seconds, re-insert the battery and restart.

Very disappointing performance - also not Wi-Fi

Debora McGrath, Amazon
3 January 2015
  • Summary: I'm very disappointed with this camera. It had great reviews but my experience hasn't been so great. It isn't wi-fi at all. If you have an iphone you can download an app which will let you remotely take a picture, but the camera itself doesn't connect to wi-fi. I don't have an iphone and nothing explained it was a "requirement". The camera also overexposes pictures all the time. The auto focus doesn't work as well as other cameras I've had.

nice camera overall

amihai karniel, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: nice camera overall, as a camera.but the flash seems fragile. the wifi connectivity did not deliver. the android app is crushing and generally useless for wifi connectivity. the ipad app works, but can be dramatically imroved with very little work from nikkon. it seems they do not care for this feature at all and have just made the minimal effort they could to be able to say they have it.

Have to return camera - not working anymore

Paris Visitor, Nikon
29 September 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera specially for a trip to Paris and because weight of luggage was limited. Since I could not bring my SLR thought this would be a good trade off. On the first day, after about an hour, the camera would no longer turn on. Thought it was the battery and I was glad I had brought another one. So, for the second day, I switched batteries and it worked good for the morning.

Defective shutter or CMOS. All outside pictures were white ...

Robert L. Mcconnell, Amazon

  • Summary: Defective shutter or CMOS. All outside pictures were white, inside pictures were very light but viewable. Manual changes of shutter, appeture, ISO had no affect. Yet video worked normal outside.

  • Summary: Not robust like a Nikon should be. Weak, fragile, its multi control, just froze up after 6 weeks, of little use. Hard to see the screen under most lighting conditiions. Point, guess, and shoot whatever.

Don't Buy

H. Snider, Amazon
23 August 2014
  • Summary: Don't buy this camera. I Just about didn't buy this camera because of the flimsy, breakable flash. But it had other features I liked. I thought I would just keep it in the non-flash position and only then would the flash pop up when I (rare in my shooting habits) wanted flash. Well in the auto position it won't maintain the setting desired when the camera is turned off.

  • Summary: I wanted a camera that would allow me to send photos directly from the camera to my computer. The S9700 will go directly to a smartphone or a tablet, but not to a PC. I have just purchased a Samsung Galaxy 2 Camera.
