Nikon S9900 Review

 

With last year's Nikon S9700 30x travel zoom compact camera, we saw Nikon actually reduce the resolution a bit from 18 to 16 megapixels, which we felt was a smart move -- slightly larger pixels, slightly better signal-to-noise ratio and thus better...

Nikon S9900 review

 

The Nikon COOLPIX S9900 is a compact super-zoom with a 30x optical range. Released in February 2015 it's an update to the COOLPIX S9700 which was launched a year earlier. The new model retains the 25-750mm equivalent f3.7 - 6.4 lens of its predecessor...

30x stabilised optical zoom ; 3in Vari-angle LCD screen ; 2nd command dial ; Time-lapse video feature

Comparatively bulky ; Lacks an electronic viewfinder ; Basic remote shooting features ; No RAW mode, but it's of limited use on this type of camera

The COOLPIX S9900 is a more affordable competitor to the best selling Panasonic Lumix TZ70 ZS50 and the Sony HX90V. Both of those are premium compact super-zooms that are attracting buyers with a high level specification and a degree of control that...

Nikon S9900 review

 

It's small on the outside but the S9900 packs a powerful 30x zoom lens

30x optical zoom range ; Slim, lightweight yet solid build ; Very effective Vibration Reduction system ; Vari-angle LCD screen

Can't shoot in raw quality mode ; No built-in or optional viewfinder ; Image quality is a little lacking ; LCD isn't a touchscreen

The Nikon S9900 offers a very long zoom range in a surprisingly compact body, but there's no overcoming the limitations of the small sensor, and the image quality isn't great – you can't shoot raw files, either.

Image quality is good rather than great, but the Nikon S9900 is packed with great features and the price is right.
