Great pictures, great camera!
I was so surprised reading the reviews. I wonder how much the reviews could help to a future customer. I owned this camera since April 2011. I bought it in LA Best Buy. I bring this camera to every single trip. I may have more than 50 thousands pictures that were taken with this camera. It is a great product! A few options allowed you to capture a perfect picture without being an expert photographer. Even more... I was riding a bike in Ecuador and I fall down and my camera was exposed to the hit. It didn't work few minutes later (the lens didn't closed completely) but after crying and rapping it, started working again... I also can hear something lose inside the camera (it is like a rattle) but I still can take great, colorful and sharp pictures. Best camera I ever owned. Great device that you plug in to recharge the battery.

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

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.
