The perfect travel companion

The COOLPIX S9100 is loaded with innovative Nikon technology, like a 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and ISO speeds up to 3200 that assure superb image quality in low-light conditions. Optimized with Nikon's exclusive EXPEED C2 processing engine, you'll capture natural looking pictures with exceptional detail. You'll love composing and viewing images and HD videos on the dazzling 921,000-dot, ultra-high resolution Clear Color Display, and at just 1.4 inches thin and 7.6 ounces, you can take the COOLPIX S9100 on every adventure.

18x wide-angle zoom

Telephoto coverage and image stabilization

Producing precision camera optics is at the heart of Nikon's proud photographic heritage. The COOLPIX S9100 is no exception. Its high quality 18x wide-angle optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens offers impressive telephoto coverage (25–450mm) and razor sharp results. It's the only lens you'll ever need for exacting portraits, scenic panoramas and challenging compositions. And since shooting from a gondola in the Swiss Alps or a whale-watching boat in Iceland can get bumpy, we've included our five-way, Hybrid VR Image Stabilization system—say goodbye to unwanted streaky or blurred images.
