Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by very good small camera overall a very good camera ,which has a good range of features and handles very well.transfer software to computer is also good.where flash pops up maybe a negative for some people, but not really a problem. 14 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not enough use for a full review Haven't used this enough to test it properly as bought in preparation for my trip to Australia next month. on first impressions, simple to use, a little bulkier than my last camera but much better zoom. Bit fiddly to get to connect to the Ipad wirelessly but maybe that is just me not being used to it yet. Good price - will be well tried out next month. 07 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Camera this is a great camera for the price. Picture quality is excellent, easy to use, a bargain at this price. 20 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nikon coolpix review I bought this camera to replace an older version of the coolpix. The previous version developed a fault where it would switch itself off, so will have to wait to see if this model has same prob. The flash us now more robust too. The quality of the photos is very good. Still trying out the different settings. 18 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by OK but not as good as the Sony it replaced, MAC users AVOID I bought this to replace my Sony Cybershot DSC-HX7V. This camera has a larger CCD and a better optical zoom however that's about all I can say in it's favour. It is nowhere near as easy to use as the Sony, produces shakier pictures has a host of useless features. it WILL NOT CONNECT TO A MAC!!! by USB (no Mass Storage option) and as yet I haven't managed to connect it by wifi. The videos aren't as sharp or the photos as sharp, so far Apple macintosh users this camera (and most new Nikons) are a No-No! 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good camera! Excellent results every time! Love the colour and it is not too bulky.....takes good close ups and scenes too-would recommend! 17 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nikon Coolpix S9600 Slightly more bulky than I expected. One big design fault the flash pops up right where you hold the camera. Only had couple of outings but continually fall foul of this problem especially when you grab the camera to take a quick shot. Still learning the different settings, so hope to correct the blurry pictures due to hand shake on what is an excellent zoom. 06 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice little camera bought this camera for its zoom which has proved to be good 06 August 2014
