Nikon Coolpix S9100 Review and specification - Nikon Coolpix S9100 can hold its head, or rather lens, up amongst the industry leading Panasonic TZ models of this world. The price is fair, and for what's being asked the performance is fair too - Nikon Coolpix S9100 from its box. We had the sleek black body option in for review - sensor with an effective resolution of 12.1 million pixels.
The Coolpix S9100 may be styled like a high end compact - the black finish adding an extra layer of apparent sophistication to our review sample – but there's no disguising the fact that it's actually a fairly approachable point and shoot. The mode dial doesn't feature any program, aperture priority, shutter priority or manual modes - it's preset auto modes all the way.
ike its sibling we also get Full HD 1080p movie clips at 30fps with stereo sound, with an instant record button squeezed into the top right hand corner of the back plate. Its implementation is similar to the one found on the cheap-as-chips Coolpix S3100 lower down the range, in that it features a raised surround to avoid accidental activation. Yet another feature shared with that model and the P500 is the ability to create slow motion video clips; via a fast capture speed of 240fps though this does require a sever resolution drop.
