Great pictures, very useful shooting modes. A, M, S etc

By HiltonHeadBill

from Hilton Head, SC

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9700 Black 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera:

love this camera. It replaces an S6500 I had been using and was impressed with the image stabilization giving clear pictures in low light. I give it a 3 star rating rather than 5 star due to the dim monitor. Even at the highest brightness setting, the image is barely visible when it's bright outside, even if you shade the monitor. My old S6500 was (is) much brighter.

Great features, poor picture quality

By Allan

from Maryland

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9700 Black 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera:

This is my second huge disappointment on a Nikon point-and-shoot. The features on this camera are excellent for its size, and the lens seems very decent. However, the .jpg files (I shoot using .jpg fine) almost always look solarized, with very heavy pixelation. They would not make any print greater than 4x6, in spite of the high megapixels. I am surprised that this camera has been rated higher than 2 by anyone because of this problem. I have a Nikon D90 and a D800, both of which are fantastic, but the software in this camera that renders the .jpg file needs some serious work -- or the sensor needs to be replaced. Too bad I can't shoot in raw to determine which is the case. Just displaying the images on my computer, they look terrible -- skin tones look like they were painted on with water colors, and are very streaky. Edges are pixelated. On any other camera, I would have to "solarize" the photo to make it look like the standard .jpg files coming out of the S9700. If you want magnification, buy this camera. If you want good pictures, look elsewhere. My Canon S110 takes much better pictures, and it is not all that great. The best point and shoot cameras I have found are the Canon S95 I used to have (no longer available), an older Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28, and best of all, my first digital camera, the Sony DSC-F717, which was a point-and-shoot only in the sense that it did not have interchangeable lenses. Nikon, you should be capable of much better! I really wanted to find a good camera to go with my D800 that would fit in my shirt pocket so I could always have it with me. Very disappointed! I get much better photos with my phone. You will probably not be able to see the issue in the attached file (I did not want to put any photos of people on the web site) because of the size of the picture, but if you could enlarge this to full size you would see that the fur on my pet does not show any individual hairs, but rather strongly resembles a watercolor. This was in bright full sun. It is much worse in dimmer light. Looks okay from a distance, but up close you know you are dealing with an inferior camera.

Nice camera, poorly produced manual



Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9700 Black 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera:

Only had the camera a few days, seems great, though. Good quality, fast, great zoom. But the manual gives very little info, instead requiring you to go to the website to search out instructions which is ridiculous. If I'm at the beach I don't want to try and read a manual on my smart phone screen. GIVE US A WORKING PRINTED MANUAL WE CAN USE PLEASE, THAT INCLUDES THE WIFI DATA AND LINKING!!!!

Broke on second use!

By lkpastor

from Tallahassee, FL, USA

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9700 Black 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera:

Had this camera 30 days, broke on second use. It was hot and i was sweating all day and the camera stopped. NIKON told me to send it in for repair and the repair people sent it back in peaces saying it was un-repairable.

Love & Hate this camera...


from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9700 Black 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera:

The main reasons I bought this camera was for the WiFi and manual modes. The first couple days I used it I was very happy with it, but on our trip to Las Vegas it started to act up. I've had the camera for almost month and took a lot of pictures in Las Vegas. The last day there I noticed that the focusing was not working and the image in the viewfinder was flickering back and forth. When I tried to take a picture it was blurry. The camera has a lot of bells and whistles but I'm very disappointed in the way it all of a sudden had these malfunctions. I have several NIKON cameras (DSLR w/lens & Point & Shoot) that I'm very happy with. This one I sent in today for warranty and I'll see how that goes. I'll amend this review after I get it back and get to use it for a while. I give it 2 stars because I think overall the camera has great potential, but the one I got in particular has issues. Hoping for the best.

Excellent P&S camera.

By WayneF

from Mead, WA, USA

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9700 Black 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera:

I have had this camera for about a week and have tried about every feature listed in the manual. They all work as advertised. The shutter lag problem I have had with other P&S cameras is gone with this camera. The manual says 6.9 frames per second for 5 shots. Didn't time that, but sure that's pretty close. That was in the auto mode, didn't try it in any other settings. I have taken about 500 pictures in all different modes and they have all came out Chrystal clear, sharp with crisp colors and detail. Just to test, I took a picture of a light bulb about 50 to 60 feet away with telephoto and could read the words "Made in China" very clearly. One thing I have to get used to is the location of the flash. It pops up right under my left finger. Not a big problem just something I need to get accustom to. The wireless feature was a little challenging to get my iPad joined to the camera, but after a email to Nikon support, that too works like advertised. Wont be using that feature much, but it will come in handy. The 1080p video works very well, but if one does that much, you should get a extra battery or two. I couldn't be happier with this camera and can see I will be leaving my heavy DSLR at home more. Have owned 6 P&S cameras of different brands and there is no comparison, the S9700 is by far the best.

Best of the S9xxx Series Yet!

By Halowe

from South Jersey

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9700 Black 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera:

I started with the original 9000 series camera and have been upgrading with each new release, with the exception of the S9500, since I didn't think the upgrade with worth the minor differences (some of the features were actually not as good IMHO). Anyway, you can read all of the detailed reviews about the great shots, low light shooting, etc. What I'd like to add is that they done two additional things that make this camera amazing. They've greatly increased the overall speed of the camera. It's quick to start, stop, focus, save, etc. etc. etc. They've also changed the battery/memory compartment door. It now stays shut. This change alone was probably worth the wait. Congratulations to the Nikon design team. This camera is absolutely amazing. I hardly ever have a need to even use my D7000 any longer. PS: I'm using the Lexar 128GB SD card. When I first placed it in the camera, the camera would not recognized it at all. So, I put it in one of my Panasonic video cameras and reformatted the card. It worked! So, I'm now able to use the card! If the design guys are reading this, they may want to take note, since they claim to have tested the Lexar 128...hmmm...
