Slim, stylish design with 18x zoom reach
Fine craftsmanship begins with the slim, stylish lines of a compact camera that fits comfortably in the hand. It then squeezes in the versatile reach and range of an 18x optical zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens that provides a focal range of 25 mm wide-angle to 450 mm super-telephoto coverage (35 mm format equivalent).
Sure shooting in challenging lighting situations
Night Portrait and Night Landscape scene modes make it easier to capture beautiful photographs at night by exploiting the camera shake and noise suppressing advantages of the back illuminated CMOS image sensor and EXPEED C2 image processing engine. A handy Mode dial provides quick access to each mode. Sensor shift and electronic VR image stabilisation help to ensure consistently sharp results.
The original EXPEED image processing system incorporates all of the accumulated expertise and technologies developed throughout Nikon's long history. Now, the latest evolution of Nikon's renowned system, EXPEED C2, expands the possibilities of photography even further, with enhanced movie recording, high-sensitivity performance and maximum image quality. EXPEED C2 maximises sensor performance for clear, pin-sharp images with vivid colours, reduced noise and smooth tonal gradations for outstanding photos and movies.
See the bigger picture
Packing a powerful 18x NIKKOR wide-angle zoom lens, the COOLPIX S9100 offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution even when capturing sweeping landscapes and large group photographs. With a maximum equivalent focal length of 450mm even distant objects can be framed easily, making the COOLPIX S9100 the ultimate companion for travelling.
A new Easy Panorama feature extends your view even further by offering 360° and 180° photos. While you pan vertically or horizontally across a scene, the camera's CMOS sensor takes a rapid burst of frames which are mergedinstantly to create a beautiful panorama.
Throw away the tripod and get stunning pictures in any situation
Disappointing night-time images are a thing of the past with the COOLPIX S9100. A back illuminated 12.1 megapixel CMOS image sensor increases the amount of light that each pixel receives, improving sensitivity and eliminating blurring, to deliver superb performance in any light. When used in the advanced Night Portrait mode, which is easily selected via the mode dial, the camera reproduces night scenes and indoor portraits exactly as the user sees them. It works by taking consecutive shots, with and without flash, which expose the portrait subject and background separately. The consecutive images are then immediately combined to produce beautiful night portraits that capture your subject and background authentically and without compromise.
Full HD (1080p) movie recording with stereo sound
Now you can get Full HD movie recording on demand, with a dedicated movie-record button which instantly switches from photos to video. Optical zoom and autofocus are available during recording and you can choose at any time to capture an image while still filming. Giving you even more creative freedom, there is also the option to film in slow or fast motion using recording speeds of up to 240fps (QVGA).
Also featured is a built-in HDMI mini connector with HDMI-CEC support, so you can connect your camera to a high definition (HD) television and view your movies in full HD with family and friends. The large 7.5 cm (3 in.) high resolution 921k-dot LCD monitor offers vivid colour reproduction and sharp contrast. Boasting Nikon's Clear Colour Display technology, it reduces power consumption and minimises reflections, even in bright sunlight.
The Special Effects mode lets you easily apply creative effects, such as High-Contrast Monochrome, Soft Focus, Nostalgic Sepia and Selective Colour. Click here for a larger image
Take creative control
The COOLPIX S9100 makes it simple to get creative with your images and movies, with options to apply a range of effects both before and after taking them. Before shooting a picture or movie, the Special Effects mode lets you easily apply creative effects, such as High-Contrast Monochrome, Soft Focus, Nostalgic Sepia and Selective Colour. The choice of effect can be reviewed on the LCD screen before you take your picture or movie clip.
After shooting, the Retouch Menu lets you enhance the photos you have taken without the need for a computer with its range of filter effects, such as Cross Screen, which adds a starry effect to bright objects. The unique Creative Slider makes it quick and easy to instantly adjust the brightness, saturation and colour tone of the image.
An additional must-have feature of the COOLPIX S9100 is Nikon's Smart Portrait System, incorporating a series of automatic functions including In-Camera Red-Eye Fix™, Blink Warning, Smile Timer and Skin Softening to flatter even the most camera-shy subject.
