At first glance, Nikon’s newest “S” model doesn’t seem much different from its predecessor, but on closer inspection, the S9100 ups the ante dramatically in the travel zoom digicam class. The Coolpix S9100 looks a lot like the S8100 and features the same 1/2.3-inch 12 megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor, the same Expeed processor, and the same 3.0-inch (921k-dot) LCD screen as the S8100.
- Generous 18x zoom
- 1080p HD movie
- No manual modes
- Digital IS only for movies
The S9100 features some nice new innovations and a great 18x optic, but it doesn't solve the low-light problems that plague just about every compact point-and-shoot on the market.
