Nikon Coolpix S9 Digital Camera Review

Nikon Coolpix S9 has a slim, stylish, metal design and fits easy in all pockets. By featuring One-Touch Portrait Button (automatically activates In-Camera Red-Eye Fix and Face-Priority), Face-Priority AF, D-Lighting (improves brightness and details where needed), In-Camera Red-Eye Fix and BBS – Best Shot Selector, Nikon technology improves your photos automatically with no need of extra work, thing that also makes the camera easy to use.

As accessory, there is a leather case that looks a lot like a wallet, and you can ask for your favourite color of the camera. Now for the bad: tests result into noisy images under low light conditions (unexpected for Nikon, but later models fixed this), and the lack of manual controls that for people like me is disturbing, but wont be a problem if you only want to make good snapshots.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
