Nikon COOLPIX S9100 Black 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera, Model COOLPIXS9100BLK

Features:

Advanced, Powerful, yet can go anywhere
The new Nikon COOLPIX S9100 is loaded with innovative Nikon technology, like a 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor that assures 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 also love composing images on the large three-inch Clear Color Display. This dazzling 921,000-dot, ultra-high resolution display that makes viewing photos and HD movies instantly gratifying.

Whether you’re people watching in Paris or waiting for just the right light to hit the Grand Canal in Venice, the COOLPIX S9100’s High-Speed Shooting feature captures five photos in approximately one second at full resolution. And Subject Tracking keeps the camera automatically focused on your moving subject. At 1.4 inches thin and 7.6 ounces in weight, the portable COOLPIX S9100 is the perfect travel companion, no matter where in the world you take it.

Create a scene and get the most out of every shot.
The world is brimming with creative shooting opportunities, and the COOLPIX S9100 has the advanced features to match. Choose one of 19 Scene Modes to assure optimized camera settings for specific scenes. Or, with Scene Auto Selector, the camera automatically selects the most appropriate mode from among seven choices for you. Plus, Nikon’s amazing Easy Panorama mode allows you to pan the camera in any direction as it automatically detects, combines and assembles your shots into one seamless panoramic image.

With Night Landscape mode, capture high quality images at night. It shoots a series of consecutive shots and composes them into a single, brilliant image. Night Portrait mode takes outdoor portraits against bright backgrounds and combines multiple shots to capture the essence of night scenes. And, the COOLPIX S9100’s Backlighting HDR Mode automatically provides optimum exposures when you’re shooting backlit subjects.

In-camera special effects that don’t require post-shot processing.
You don’t want to be hassled with post-shot processing, which is why Nikon equipped the COOLPIX S9100 with in-camera special effects. These advanced features help you take shots you’ve never considered before! You can re-capture yesteryear with the Nostalgic Sepia effect, or try some intricate black and white shooting with the High-Contrast Monochrome feature. This versatile camera also lets you highlight bright areas of a photo with the High Key effect, or highlight dark areas with the Low Key mode. A Selective Color feature boosts the vibrancy of specific aspects of a photo or movie, while Soft Effect subdues harsh elements for a gentler, silkier look. The COOLPIX S9100 even has a Creative Slider to adjust the brightness, intensity and hue of an image.

Wide angle, high power 18x compact Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens
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) with outstanding color capture and razor-sharp results. This is the only lens you’ll ever need for exacting portrait studies, scenic panoramas, and challenging compositions. Plus, we realize that shooting from the roof of an SUV, a gondola overlooking the Swiss Alps, or a whale-watching boat in Iceland can get bumpy. That’s why we’ve included a five-way, Hybrid VR Image Stabilization system with the COOLPIX S9100. It uses sensor shift in combination with electronic stabilization features to minimize the effects of camera shake, so you can say goodbye to unwanted streaky or blurred images.

Bring back Full HD (1080p) movies of your treks around the world.
Sharing your travel adventures—or posting them on the Internet for friends and relatives—is even more exciting with Full HD (1080p) movies. While the COOLPIX S9100 can capture hundreds of memorable still images for you to easily print and save, its moviemaking features bring a safari, ski trip, cruise, or balloon ride to life. One touch of the movie recording button and you’ll be shooting 1080p HD movies—complete with stereo sound. Plus, optical zoom and auto focus 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. When the time comes to share your movies, simply use the in-camera playback feature or the convenient HDMI-CEC output for quick hookup to an HDTV or computer.

Convenient features
When traveling on an exotic adventure, you can’t afford missed photo opportunities. You’ll find Nikon’s Motion Detection feature to be important because it identifies moving objects and automatically adjusts shutter speed and ISO to assure crisp, blur free images. When conditions conspire against you, Nikon’s Best Shot Selector automatically takes up to 10 shots and saves the sharpest image. ISO speeds up to 3200 will help you capture great shots in low-light. Blinking eyes and red-eye can ruin portraits. That’s why the COOLPIX S9100 includes Blink Warning. It also offers in-camera Red-Eye Fix that automatically corrects red-eye as you shoot and Skin Softening that smoothes skin tones. The COOLPIX S9100 also has Macro Shooting for shooting as close as 1.6 inches. And, when you’re in remote regions, you’ll appreciate the camera’s 270-shot rechargeable Li-ion battery. .

          I really like this camera. The lens is very sharp and allows you to make full use of the high pixel count sensor. Blown up photos are still quite sharp.

              Comments about Nikon COOLPIX S9100 Red 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

              I was so excited to buy this camera with the fantastic zoom. The first time I used it I realized that the picture quality was poor. I missed many special occasions that I had intended to have great pictures from and now I have no pictures. I took it back to the store twice. I spoke to the service department. One tech restored the factory settings for me. I thought that would solve my issues, but instead I have fuzzy out of focus pictures from my daughters homecoming.
              I am sorry I bought this camera and I am basically stuck with it. I can't even exchange it, the time limit is up.

              This is by far the best point and shoot camera I have ever owned! I don't even know where to begin but if you're looking for a solid camera that is point and shoot you cannot go wrong with this. I cannot wait to travel and take some awesome photos with this camera. I am a novice when it comes to photography and this camera is easy to use and has some great features. I upgraded from an older Cannon AS1000 and this blows it out of the water.

                without a view finder, it was a bit difficult knowing what you were taking a picture of when out on the water in our canoes. Followed a bald eagle around and tried to take shots, but never knew if he was going to be in the picture or if I was just picking up the pine tree branches.

                The Nikon s9100 is a fabulous camera. I have the Nikon d300, Nikon d3100 and the Nikon s610. I prefer the Nikon s9100 for its ease of use and wonderful results. It powers up fast for the shot you do not want to miss. The video is outstanding and offers surprising versitility like slow motion. Thank you Nikon for a wonderful camera.

                Great take-along camera

                By Avohill

                from Southern California

                Comments about Nikon COOLPIX S9100 Black 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

                First thing to know: I received this camera from my wife for my birthday. She went to the store to purchase a full sized digital camera for my many photo "needs". I had planted hundreds of subliminal messages directing her to get me something like a Nikon D7000 with Nikkor lenses. The salesman helping her, after effective inquiries, convinced her I'd use the S9100 more. He was right. I'll bet the store's owner would not agree, but I do. So, after 6 weeks of very heavy use, here's what I think about the CoolPix S9100: The versatility and convenient carry size of the Coolpix S9100 combine with excellent quality to provide surprising value. It is easy to use, requiring for me just a few weeks of daily practice. The user manual is an essential element in this process. My opinion; camera company product development teams should ensure their collateral materials (especially user manuals) are as robust and user friendly as the primary product. Video quality is good. Sound quality is adequate for all my needs. I am particularly pleased the zoom features can be operated while shooting videos. Panorama features are excellent. The "assist" setting makes shooting panorama absolutely simple - even without a tripod. I'm eager to get a print made and see the results of this excellent feature. The HDR feature (high dynamic range) is terrific. The manual says very little about it or the way it works. It should. It is a good feature. I tried to determine, before first use, if this camera had automatic exposure bracketing. The reason for that inquiry was simply to ensure I could use the HDR software on my computer to create better photos. (one needs about 6 shots at various exposures) Imagine my surprise when I discovered the S9100 used software inside itself to make HDR photo for me. Now, that's something folks should know. The flash location and functions are good. Backlighting features are very good. "Scene" settings are good. It takes more than 6 weeks to really test them all thoroughly so for now I can only say, "my limited use seems to indicate these factory settings are good". Macro hasn't been as easy for me to use because the camera is very small and more difficult to hold than a larger bodied camera. I think it would be wise, if the user can manage it, to use a tripod with Macro. The size of the camera is one of its features. It is also one of its shortcomings. I have large hands. I found the addition of a pocket sized tripod gave me something to hold and helped me produce better shots. My mini tripod is about 4 inches long with legs like a "snake light". I leave it on the camera all the time. The view screen is terrific. However, like all screens, outdoor viewing can be tough and glare can be a real problem. I am going to test the anti - glare screen protectors sold for cell phones and PDA's. That may help. Recharging is a snap using the USB / 120v adapter with long wire. I prefer to recharge small batteries by removing them from the camera and placing them in a dedicated charging dock. That allows me to put the camera body back in its case (for safety) while the battery is charging, but I've adjusted to the S9100 system and have no complaints. I just have to be more careful. Overall, after 6 weeks of use, the salesman was right, my wife bought a great product, and I'm pleased with the pictures I'm creating. Compact digital cameras tend to be point and shoot devices for an audience that frankly doesn't require much else. But Nikon did right by their brand with the S9100. It's a whale of nice little camera. Of course, I doubt the D7000 would have disappointed me - but don't tell my wife.
