3/9/16 I was told today by the west coast Nikon service center that Stuck Pixels and Hot Pixels on the image sensor are considered normal. I don’t consider this normal at all, therefore I can no longer be a Nikon customer. It’s time to shop other brands. Before the first repair, I loved this camera, great pictures, great video. But after the repair, it has never been the same. My video's have specks in them that I can't Photoshop out. Ruined.

Here’s my repair history in reverse chronological order.

2/23/16 – Repair #3 for Stuck Pixels and Hot Pixels on the IMAGE SENSOR (I previously called them “specks”). Despite leaving pictures and video examples in the camera for them, the Nikon and the West Coast service center states this is normal. (Note that these specks are on the IMAGE SENSOR, not the LCD screen).

10/19/15 – Repair #2 for “specks” in videos. I didn’t know the term for the specks at the time. On the repair order, they called it blurry photos and replaced the lens again!

6/11/15 – Repair #1 under Extended Service Contract for BLURRY PHOTO’s and LENS ERROR again. Lens was replaced.

12/10/14 8 months ownership 9200 pictures later. Today found my camera BLAZING HOT and battery depleted (was freshly charged) with the camera OFF! 2 hours earlier I took a few pictures, turned the camera off and set it down. VERY DISCONCERTING!!! I let it cool a couple hours, recharged battery, now seems to be ok. Called Nikon - they say "that's the first they heard of it".

5/2/14 Received S9700 #2 – LENS ERROR within a month. Nikon tech support convinced me to “reset” the camera as a fix. Seemed ok for a while.

4/25/14 Received S9700 #1 – Flash wouldn’t popup, return/exchange back to AMZ.

I've had a Samsung WB850 and I still have a Fuji F900EXR. Both are megazoom pocket cameras. I'm sold on pocket megazooms for reasons that I explained in my review of the WB850. I've put my big DSLRs away only for stuff where I need the features of a big DSLR and those times are becoming rarer. I changed from the WB850 for one reason. It is SLOW between shots. Super camera but it just took too much time between shots AND I wanted a camera that would shoot in raw format.

The Fuji is fast between shots and it shoots in raw BUT it won't let you run the camera and charge the battery in the camera through the USB port. Therefore I always had to carry extra batteries.

After owning the Fuji for a few months, I found that I really did not need raw pictures. I just never used the raw file, only the jpg file. If you don't know what the raw format is, then you most likely don't need raw. I saw the 9700 in a store and was super impressed with the zoom. There is a BIG difference between the 21X megazooms and this 30X. They didn't have it in red and I wanted the red model so I bought it from Amazon.

This camera takes megazoom to a whole new level and it still fits in your jeans pocket.

Pictures and video are great. I won't go into detail about photo and video quality because for the picky you can find ample comparisons and specs on photo and video quality. All three of the cameras take great pictures and video.

This is the biggest zoom on a pocket camera that I've found and I can't see any reason why you need more. There is a 35X but it's not pocket sized unless you are wearing Safari pants and fitting in my pocket is a requirement.

The shot to shot time in practical use is about 2.5 seconds. The Fuji is MUCH faster at around one second.

I was able to take a stable electronic zoom at 1500 mm in bright sunlight. Most impressive. I had been considering a bridge or full DSLR before I select this. The aperture /shutter priority with full manual control is impressive and works very well. I have yet to use much of the special settings as the traditional control is so good. I do regret that the aperture cannot be stopped down to a1.8 much less1.4, but this is my travel camera and it will likely be with me where a bulky DSLR wouldn't (I know, because even before film became scarce I rarely took my canon AE1P and associated lenses but often took my canon SD550 and before that a Chinon digital compact and before that a Minolta film compact). One problem was trying to connect to my iDevices by Wi-Fi. Nikon service couldn't fix it. However, I found that by sending an internet message from the iDevice to the camera in the http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx format while the camera was searching for a connection and then clicking on the "take photos" button in the Nikon app fixed the problem. The camera URL (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx in which they x's are replaced by the appropriate numbers) is listed in one of the sub menus. One big concerns was whether the OLED screen would be bright enough to see on a sunny Louisiana day. It's not perfect, but way better than an iDevice and almost the same quality as a kindle paper white but with colors bleached out to almost match the paper white with no dark letters/scene specifics. The wide angle to zoom is fantastic. I also find that as long as I am aware of the flash settings, it's location is not a problem. However, the flash seems to want to pop up whenever I try to place the camera in its case or just touch the camera "wrong". The flash is thus way too sensitive.Read more ›
