Q & As

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nikon s9700 very good camera,we love the x30 zoom easy to use great picture quality 04 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 A nice compact All cameras are a compromise and I chose carefully. I wanted good picture quality and a good zoom lens for those times that I didn't have my SLR. The camera arrived at Christmas and I have been amazed at the quality of indoor shots, without flash. I have just read that it won't synchronise with the cloud, which is a bit disapppointing as it has wi-fi, but you cannot compare it to a phone if you want great pictures! So far so good.... 28 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Unfortunately I had to return this camera the day after getting it as the camera jammed with the lens at full zoom. I did not exchange it as although it may have been a once off I had lost faith in it. 16 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor design - battery drained way too quickly Had to return this item. Its quite bulky, the flash is in a terrible position and seems easily breakable, but there was a fault in that the battery drained mysteriously. First time buying a Nikon and won't buy another. This was returned and swapped for a Canon. 09 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent replacement for old Sony Have had for four plus months, all working well. Battery life far superior to old camera. Need to take care with indoor shots / use of flash - trial and error - getting there (slowly). Would not hesitate to recommend as a relatively low cost point and shoot camera. 21 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Small, handy but not spectacular I thought it was time to buy a modern camera and stop relying upon my smart phone. This has a great zoom and is small with a good internal memory. The WiFi connection is disappointing as I thought it would upload my pictures to the cloud automatically - it doesn't! A smart phone has the edge over this apart from the resolution and optical zoom. 30 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice little camera Does the job well, but very sensitive to knocks, buy a sturdy hard case to protect it. Otherwise a good buy. 09 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikon Coolpix S9700 First impressions are excellent. A small problem - It is easy to press the movie button accidentally but very pleased with the initial results. Photo quality is excellent and the 30x zoom is a boon. 08 September 2014
