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.

Intelligent scene modes for any situation

The world is brimming with creative shooting opportunities, and the COOLPIX S9100 has the advanced features to match. Choose one of 19 Scene Modes or let Scene Auto Selector choose the ideal mode for your situation. Nikon's amazing Easy Panorama mode lets you pan the camera in any direction as it automatically detects, combines and assembles your shots into one seamless panoramic image. And say goodbye to post-shot processing—the COOLPIX S9100 is loaded with in-camera special effects like Nostalgic Sepia, Selective Color, High and Low Key and many more.

Bring your adventures to life

One-touch Full HD (1080p) movies

Sharing your travel adventures is even more exciting with Full HD (1080p) movies. With one touch of the COOLPIX S9100's movie recording button, you'll be shooting 1080p HD movies with stereo sound. Optical zoom and autofocus functions will bring you close to the action. You can even shoot still images while recording movies or experiment with special effects like fast or slow motion. And the in-camera playback feature and convenient HDMI-CEC output for quick hookup to an HDTV or computer make sharing your movies a breeze.

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

Answer: 
Nikon recommends the MH-65 or the EH-69p battery Chargers.

Nikon COOLPIX cameras are designed to the highest standards and include complex electronic circuitry. Only Nikon brand electronic accessories (including battery charger, batteries, Charging AC Adapter, and AC adapters) certified by Nikon specifically for use with this Nikon digital camera are engineered and proven to operate within the operational and safety requirements of this electronic circuitry.

The use of non-Nikon electronic accessories could damage the camera and may void your Nikon warranty..

I had a Nikon S8100 and it was great for taking night time photos of salamanders and frogs. However, that is a pretty old version, I was wondering if there are newer versions of the coolpix that will give me the same quality as the 8100. Night time photos up close are a must.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX S9700’s 30x optical zoom lens goes from wide-angle—great for portraits and landscapes—all the way up to telephoto—great for closeups of sports, concerts, nature and more. When you need even more reach, zoom up to 30x with optical zoom and 60x with Dynamic Fine Zoom, an enhanced digital zoom function that effectively doubles your reach. The COOLPIX S9700 records the exact location of each shot you take, so you can follow the path of your adventure and every stunning view along the way! Share your journeys on Google Maps™, Google+™, and other social networking sites, or with the Nikon View NX2 software. A 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor contributes to the amazing image quality by producing breathtaking photos and Full HD 1080/60i videos. The COOLPIX S9700 also implements Hybrid VR image stabilization for stable video recording, even while handheld. From composing the perfect shot to viewing the photo in crisp detail, the COOLPIX S9700’s high resolution (921K-dot) 3.0-inch (7.5cm) bright OLED monitor helps the user do it all accurately.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX S9100 is an archived camera, which means that it is no longer available for sale. For alternatives take a look at the S9400, S9500, S9600 or S9700.
