Good camera - but needs an external battery charger to make you really happy.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
24 December 2014
  • Summary: I love the camera - takes great pictures. But the Battery charger, that comes with the camera, in a word - is lousy and is basically worthless. Nikon did away with the external battery charger to save us $25 and instead gave us one that charges the battery via the USB port.

Slow machine

Raf, Amazon
1 November 2014
  • Summary: Not too fast in Switching on, takes its time after each photo is taken too. Not a bad camera, but a relatively slow one. Tends to accumulate dust around the lens, which worries me in case some of it would actually manage to enter the camera.

Great pictures with reservations

AC Harvey, Amazon
28 October 2014
  • Summary: I am a loyal Nikon customer from way back and find this camera is the high quality that I have come to expect from Nikon. I am dismayed that it is so much bigger than the Coolpix that I bought it to replace and even more dismayed that Nikon doesn't provide a viewfinder - none of the digital cameras...

Camera takes great pictures however

DB, Amazon
8 October 2014
  • Summary: Camera takes great pictures however, the flash design ,placement and operation is a disaster. Only a matter of time before it breaks off. On/Off switch needs to be recessed. More than once while putting camera back in belt carry case the lens opened half way causing a lens error code.

It took great pictures for the week or so I had it

Karen Holland, LMFT, Amazon
6 October 2014
  • Summary: I had to return it because it got a lens error and is now inoperable. It took great pictures for the week or so I had it. Also, if you like to take a lot of pictures with flash, this camera will annoy you. Poor placement of a pop up flash.

Does not live up to Nikon's Coolpix Quality

tracker, Amazon
4 October 2014
  • Summary: I have used Coolpix camera for several years in my work as a wildlife biologist and loved them. The S8000 and S8200 were reliable and took excellent quality photos. The 9700 has been a disappointment. Rather than increasing in quality, it seems that each generation of Coolpix declines.

CRAPPY FLASH PLACEMENT

Been There, Amazon
3 October 2014
  • Summary: Nikon really blew it with the placement of the flash as it's in the left corner where you would naturally place your left index finger to steady the camera! Nearly dropped the camera the first time I used it because of the placement of the flash AND the fact that it pops up!

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Should have read the reviews prior to buying. Although a very nice camera, the flash mechanism quit working after 1 week of use so the camera is already in the shop where it can't be used. we'll see if the warranty service can fix the flash mechanism, but I seriously doubt it.
