It's the only lens you'll ever need for exacting portraits, scenic panoramas and challenging compositions.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Shoot fast pictures

Cons: Had trouble in video mode switching from light to dark, it would be either a washout or compelte brightness. Also had a shadow of a circle in the middle.

Other Thoughts: Took a chance on a recommendation on buying Nikon, won't do that again.

1 out of 5 eggsLemon - recall in order

Pros: 18X Zoom
3" LCD

Cons: Blurry pictures
Poor Autofocus
Poor Lens quality

Other Thoughts: I purchased 3 months ago and wished i wouldnt have. From day one, blurry pics, poor autofocus, loud grinding noise from lens when autofocusing. Sent in to Nikon for repair and then after 1 month all my pics exhibited white circle on all pics.

This camera should have been recalled.

2 out of 5 eggs1080p video, but weak Image Stabilization

Pros: Very Nice resolution view screen(The best I've ever owned). Nice Optical zoom for a small point and shoot. 1080p video also a big plus.

Cons: Image Stabilization is not very good at all. The physical lens Image Stabilization in my 3 year old Canon is much easier to take clear pictures with.

Other Thoughts: Unfortuanately, I dropped this camera into the middle of the Lake of the Woods on a fishing trip about a week after I bought it; only got to keep about 60 pictures. My 32GB card went with it :(

1 out of 5 eggsVery Irritating

Pros: Takes fantastic pictures when its working. Very fast shoot times. Video is above par as well.

Cons: It has broken and is being sent back to Nikon for repair already after only 6 weeks time. This camera has been very disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my wife for a birthday present in June, by our vacation in July it was broken already. I did everything Nikon suggested, its being RMA'd to them now, another 3 weeks my wife wont have it. She barely got to use it.
I thought I was buying the best quality when I was buying the Nikon name. Apparently I was incorrect in my assumption.

Try a different model from Nikon if you are sold on Nikon cameras.

5 out of 5 eggsNikon S9100

Pros: I have a Nikon DSLR, but I needed something portable to have in my pocket. I have tried other point-and-shoots, but none of them compared to the S9100 in photo quality and video quality. I didn't bother with the software because I use Photoshop. The zoom is great for a camera this small. The display has twice the pixels of most point-and-shoots and is stunning!

Cons: Some photos taken with the automatic setting are a little over exposed.

Other Thoughts: Best camera I have seen for keeping in your pocket.

5 out of 5 eggsCamera is WELL worth the price

Pros: -Great size, for the zoom and quality you are getting, the size is very good, able to fit snugly in a pocket (I bought a camera travel satchel)
-The video quality is very, very good for a point and shoot camera. I had a Flip video HD before this, and now I am putting it up for sale because the HD video on this S9100 is great
-Picture quality is great for average shooters
- The zoom is amazing compared to any point and shoot I have used.

Cons: - The picture quality isn't so great for photophiles. Is that a word? oh well u get what I mean.
-Bundled software is a little hard to figure out, I dont bother with it and just edit them all with photoshop.

Other Thoughts: For the price, if you are looking for an all-in-one picture/video device, I would seriously give this one a try. It takes great pictures, the low light quality is VERY good. U must have steady hand in low light but thats with every PnS camera. The video IMO is where this thing really shines, and for that, you are basically getting two devices for the price of one.
