Nikon Coolpix S9900 Review

March 24, 2015 | Mark Goldstein |


The addition of the versatile vari-angle screen, a dedicated command dial, enhanced GPS tracking and NFC connectivity make the new Coolpix S9900 Nikon's best travel-zoom camera yet, although it doesn't make any great strides forwards in terms of image quality or general performance. Presumably because it's still positioned in the Style range of Coolpix cameras, rather than the Performance segment, the S9900 doesn't offer RAW shooting, the wi-fi connectivity options are limited to sharing your images rather than controlling the camera, and there's no viewfinder or touch-screen operation, but otherwise the Nikon Coolpix S9900 is a well-appointed travel-zoom that suits a wide range of experience levels, from point-and-shooters to more advanced users, and it's crucially a little bit cheaper than its main rivals too.
