COOLPIX S9100 2.9 5 225 225
s9100 so far so great I read the negitive reviews then the postive one i took a chance and bought it in 2012 for half price this is my first travel zoom camera. It does come with the sort of a brif owners manual summery what the camera does and a true owners manuel on a cd u can download it on your pc.Yes i do highy recommend that u read the manuel to compleaty understand the camera it is automatic camera for picture taking but when u get blured pictures u know what cause it and how to fix it. like is the viberation setting right is it in hybird mode or normel or off? is the motion dection on or off?? that has help me to get clear picture in the outher setting like night landscape,,,,night portrait,,,,,,backlighting,,,,,u have to know how to set this. gettting great pictures when you are in the settings u hit menu to bring extra settings u pick and choose what u wont then exit snap and look at the result i will say i do high recommend getting a small tripod i got a joby--gorilla tripod and set the camera on it and snap your pictures this tripod has made a huge differance in these settings i also recommend getting a extra battery when u do video and flash it drains it pretty fast so its nice to have a spare also noted to i talk to a camera professional about the differance between class6 and class 10 cards for this camera what he said was class 10 if you plan on doing more video then photo and u plan on editing that video to splice it together to make like a small flim but if your going to take mostley photos then a class 6 would do fine but look at the writing speeds get the highiest u can so i got a class 6 sandisk extream card it writes a 30x so far it has work wonderful the camera has not froze up or slow responce nothing so if that helps any ? before i finshed this camera has a digtel zoom feature to this feature steps down your pixil rate and increase your f/stops it also crops your picture to so u are at the maxium zoom length and snap a picture it may not turn out clear or look right u might have to do this trick i learn set on the tripod and set the slef timmer for 2sec get your picture where u wont it at then hit the shutter let the camera start the timer and let it snap it and see what u got it has help me get some decent pictures but i turn my digtel zoom offf and it has never faild to delever a great picture now i know i havent meation about video about this camera well i dont use it for video i use it for pictures nikon s9100 it is a great camera but read the manuel to get the best out of it July 13, 2012
Great Easy Camera To Use!! Great Pictures From A Small Camera, East To Use Camera! April 10, 2012
Very Good Camera I was so surprised when I first used this camera. if you look for a small camera for travel, you should take this April 8, 2012
Excellent travel zoom This little camera only lacks of manual adjustments( exposure/speed priority), but I believe most negative reviews are people who didn't read the manual, it has several features and options to get excellent pictures and the zoom is awsome (obviously zoom compromises sharpness, but this is not the point, you get a 18X zoom in your pocket!) this is a P&S camera with a huge zoom (ideal for travel) the flexibility and size you obtain is invaluable. I also use some canon and nikon SRL's and a small p&s. January 18, 2012
Fantastic photo,s from such a user friendly little point & shoot camera ! From the moment that it was removed out of the box and reading the quick start info, this camera just performed absolutely flawless in every respect. Other review's that I have read made this machine sound like a complete disaster but I'm totally convinced that their result's was just a simple cause of a mere operator error in every respect. The whole layout of this model is so easy and simple to use and understand that if your result's are terrible, I can't imagine what your pic's would look like if you were operating a less inferior camera of a different brand. All aside, this model from Nikon is the best point & shoot camera that I have owned and I've had a few. My hat's off to Nikon for such great innovative technology ! January 6, 2012

They say that if you do not override the auto-off function that the camera will not have enough time to upload pictures before turning off. I know the Eye-Fi card does this automatically, so I was hoping someone at Nikon would have some experience with them before I order the SD card from them and find out it is a hassle to get working.

Thanks, any advice on settings would be very helpful!

Answer: 
Make sure your camera didn't make a separate folder of images. If not then check the SD card to make sure it still works. Put it in other devices like a video recorder or another camera to make sure it's putting the info on the card. If that doesn't help get the camera sent in.

I just purchased a S9100 and noticed many of the flash pictures were blurry in my first use. As I was reviewing them, I noticed they were all shot at 1/30 second. Is there a way to force a 1/60 as that would seem to be better for pictures of people to freeze them if they are moving at all.

My s9100 camera freezes when left on for awhile. The screen still shows a live image, but the camera would not do anything. Can't take pictures or view old ones. This especially happens after it comes out of auto off. I have to unplug the battery to get the camera working again. I've tried disabling auto off, or making it longer, but it would still freeze when left on for 5 mins or so.

This happens once every few weeks and is very disappointing. In the midst of taking pics of my baby, the screen turns blank and there is no response for a long time (more than 3 minutes). Only way to reset is to take out the battery and put it back again, and it works again immediately, but the picture moment is already gone. Do I have a faulty camera and should I return it and get a replacement?

After taking my camera from a dehumidifing cabinet I switched it on, it messaged the flashed isn't raised and the buttons won't work. I removed the battery, put it back and it seems the camera is confused - the lens is out but it doesn't work and doesn't switch off. The lens stays out, when I press the on/off button it goes in and out and doesn't function? After removing the battery and putting it back again, pressing the review button, I went into the menu & settings, ressetted the camera but no change?

I just got the camera today and I really love it. It is by far the best point and shoot I have ever owned but the 18X zoom results in blurry pics. Is there a way to fix that within the settings or will I want to get a tripod for taking pics that will require or need that much of a zoom?

Answer: 
The blur that you are getting is down to the shutter speed being to slow for the focal length that you are shooting at. There are various ways to try and get around this.

The easiest way is to hold the camera more steadily (this may sound obvious but the first lesson I generally teach people is how to hold the camera better, don't hold the camera out, as your hands will shake, which is one of the reasons you get blur, position you feet apart (in an open stance), generally I put one foot in slightly in front of the other, Generally I will have my elbows into my chest, whilst having the camera held up, take a breath before you shoot, so the body isn't moving. This might not work at x18 zoom as this is a long distance.

Use support or a tripod/monopod. If you can balance the camera on something it will make a big difference, if you can't do that support yourself against something, so you are not swaying around.

The S9100 if I remember correctly doesn't have manual/shutter/aperture priority but does have various scenes, so which increase or decrease the shooting speed appropriately. Something like sport will have a faster shooting speed, but remember, your photos will be darker as the sensor is exposed to less light.

Shooting in good light. This make a big difference, if you haven't got good light the camera will naturally compensate by changing the shutterspeed and aperture to get the right amount of light onto the sensor, thus slowing the speed that you are shooting. You can compensate this by having a higher ISO but the higher you go the more noise that you get on the photos. This is a much bigger issue with compact cameras, like the S9100 because it has a smaller sensor.

Hopefully this will make a difference to your shooting.

I just got my first Nikon in purchasing the S9100 and was so excited about it, but I am now ready to return it. Any shots that I try to take of my kids with even the slightest movement by them are blurry. I've tried auto, sports, flash, no flash, all blurry. Please help! Am I doing something wrong?

Answer: 
If you are starting out in photography and want to learn properly. I would suggest a basic DSLR, like the D3100 over a compact. You don't get the controllability with the S9100, really to learn how to do photography properly.
