Nikon Coolpix S9700 review

 

The desire for longer zoom lenses has supplanted using sensors bursting with megapixels to market point-and-shoots.

The Nikon Coolpix S9700 is a 30x compact zoom that captures nice photos and video; it has very good shooting performance; and it has a full assortment of shooting modes from basic automatic to more creative options including full manual control.

The S9700's flash is poorly located, as are the stereo mics; Wi-Fi features are fairly limited compared with those in competing models; and battery life can be short if you do more than take photos.

Outside of some design quibbles, the Nikon Coolpix S9700 puts big zoom power and nice photo quality (snugly) in your pocket.

Nikon Coolpix S9700

 

The Nikon Coolpix S9700 camera packs a 30x zoom lens into a compact body with Wi-Fi. Its image quality earns Editors' Choice honors.

Sharp lens. Good image quality through ISO 800. In-camera image filters. 5.7fps burst capture mode. 30x zoom range. Sharp LCD. GPS. Wi-Fi.

Pricey. Wi-Fi could be more functional. External charger not included.

The S9700 has an integrated GPS. When enabled it adds geographic coordinates to your photos—many photo sharing sites and workflow applications will recognize that data and display your photos on a map. The GPS locks onto a signal in about 40 seconds,...

The Nikon COOLPIX S9700 is a compact travel zoom with a 30x optical zoom lens, a 16 Megapixel CMOS sensor and a 3 inch OLED screen with a 921k dot resolution. The COOLPIX S9600, launched at the same time, has a shorter 22x zoom, a lower resolution...

30x optical stabilised zoom ; 3in 921k dot OLED screen ; Built-in Wifi and GPS with map display ; Wide range of movie modes

No built-in viewfinder ; Lacks NFC connectivity. (Newer S9900 has it though) ; Settings inacessible in PASM modes ; Basic and clunky remote shooting

The COOLPIX S9700 is a competitively-priced 30x compact superzoom with a great range of features and a useful lens range of 25-750mm. It offers the full range of PASM shooting modes for those who like to take control of exposure plus a good range of...
