Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9 Digital Camera, Silver:

I love this camera. I have a new baby, so I take alot of pictures. It is easy to use and really fun to go in and play with stuff after that picture is taken. I have found that if you put it in sports mode, the flashes aren't as long and you can get some really cool pictures.
Just love it.

Horrible Camera!
By mary from missouri on 1/4/2007
Describe Yourself:
Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Pros:
Simple Controls
Cons:
Low-Quality Pictures

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9 Digital Camera, Silver:

This is my second digital camera and I wanted everything in it that my first one (three years ago) didn't have such as red eye reduction, faster at taking pictures, better batery life, better pixels and so on. Well-this camera does have red eye reduction but it takes 6 seconds to take the picture. By the time it takes the picture, the moment has passed. If you have it on auto flash instead of red eye reduction, then you get the red eyes. Lith. batery doesn't last long and the picture quality isn't great. It also locked up on me because I was getting so upset with it. [...]. I think I will have to resort to going back to my old 2.1 mega pixal digital camera. This may be a camera for first time digital camera users, but if you know what you want in a digital camera from past experiences, this isn't the one for you. Save yourself the disappointment and go with something better [...].

back up camera

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9 Digital Camera, Silver:

I was pleased with the camera aesthetically and the ease of use. However, I was greatly disappointed with the limited battery life. I attended a one hour event and left the battery in and by the time the event was over, the battery was depleted. Now I am forced to repeatedly install and remove the battery throughout the course of an event to prevent this from happening. What a hassle that has turned out to be.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9 Digital Camera, Silver:

I love this camera. I got it for myself around Christmas time. I wanted a pink one, but they sold out. This one is a great camera, although, there are a lot of instances where I had a second to take a picture, and it couldn't do it. It has 6 flashes! 6 FLASHES! That's why...It's a little annoying, but I guess now it's easier to work.
