Alan, Tonbridge Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I use a Nikon D80 and D800 (DSLRs) with various Nikon lenses for most of my portrait and landscape shots but wanted a quality 'pocket-sized' compact camera for ease of carrying around etc. The S9900 is very very good and is clearly a 'top end' compact.

Build quality is excellent (save for a slight dislike of the flash mechanism), auto-focus is spot on, it has a whole range of shooting options including a few auto options plus Manual, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority aswell as HD video etc so you can be really creative.

The 30X optical zoom is amazing (if you need to use it), flash light quality and the ability to capture ambient light at night is great, and the overall image quality is excellent.

A really great little camera.
Bad points:
Only criticism is the actual flash mechanical mechanism: It's a bit of a 'Mickey Mouse' spring-loaded cantilever pop-up affair which can be a bit obtrusive. - Not a major problem but just be aware of it as it could be easily caught and damaged under 'less-than-careful' handling.

Paul, Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good images for a compact. Last Coolpix had awful shutter lag but thankfully this is a thing of the past.
Bad points:
Auto focus won't always lock in macro mode presumably due to insufficient contrast between subject and background. Also I keep catching the WiFi button due to its position close to the review button.

NIKKOR 30x optical zoom lens
