Nikon Coolpix S9 review


More often, manufacturers have been making cameras with larger model numbers that cost less than their larger-numbered brethren. For example, Nikon's Coolpix S9 can cost anywhere from $20 to $80 less than the Coolpix S5, depending on the store you...

Relatively low price for an ultracompact; attractive design; easy to use.

No manual exposure controls; sensitivity tops out at ISO 400; noisy images at ISO 200 and ISO 400.

Nikon's Coolpix S9 has an attractive price, but its feature set and image quality could be better.

Nikon Coolpix S9 Digital Camera - Hands-On Preview

Review: Nikon Coolpix S9


When you take the Nikon Coolpix S9 (street $210) out of its box, the immediate impression is of an antique, elegant cigarette case from one of those 1940's black and white detective films. Small in size with gently sloping, speckled chrome on the body...

Nikon Coolpix S9


Compact and affordable, the Coolpix S9 seems to be Nikon's solution for consumers wanting such a camera. It offers 6 megapixels with an internal lens in a stylish little case. Is this the affordable thin camera you've been waiting for?

3X internal zoom lens ; Stylish design ; Good LCD visibility and resolution ; Tolerable (Average) performance ; Nice movie mode ; Good image quality with low noise ; Affordably priced

Below average battery life ; Limited continuous shooting ; Plastic tripod mount, tiny buttons ; No manual controls ; No exposure info or histograms ; Redeye, corner softness and color fringing ; No movie optical zoom

The Nikon Coolpix S9 is a small, stylish and affordable camera. A 3X zoom lens is self-contained in the camera and the 2.5 inch LCD on the back offers good resolution and viewing. Unfortunately, that LCD previewing won't last long without a viewfinder...

Nikon Coolpix S9 digital camera


Nikon's 6-megapixel CoolPix S9 digital camera is a very cute-looking and lightweight (it is just 115g in weight) camera that has an excellent and large 2.5-inch screen (there's no optical viewfinder, a problem during the bright conditions I shot this...

Build, styling, Price

Noise in shadows at lower sensitivities, small buttons, JPEG artefacts evident even in top quality mode, Lack of detail.

Perhaps not one for the more advanced user, problems with image detail and JPEG artefacts frustrate an otherwise nice camera. Nikon’s Coolpix S9 is undoubtedly a stylish and easy to use (once you’ve mastered a couple of the small control issues) little...
