Nikon Coolpix S9900: Retro style 30x superzoom (hands-on) - Pocket-lint

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.

Nikon Coolpix S9900 Review

 

Reviewed: the Nikon Coolpix S9900 - the travel zoom camera with a 30x optical zoom lens, built in Wi-Fi, GPS and a tilting screen.

30x optical zoom lens ; 2 year warranty ; Good colour reproduction ; Wi-Fi and GPS built in ; Full manual controls ; Good value for money ; Good 3inch screen ; 1cm macro mode

Soft images - detail could be better ; Low resolution panoramic photos ; Tripod position could be better ; The addition of a vari-angle screen has added to the size and weight of the camera ; Basic Wi-Fi app - needs improvement

The Nikon Coolpix S9900 is the only travel zoom camera available with a vari-angle screen, and one of very few to offer both Wi-Fi and GPS built-in, with the only other cameras being the TZ70 and HX60V. The S9900 has grown in size, due to the...

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...
