The lens features Vibration Reduction to reduce the effects of camera shake at longer focal lengths and slower shutter speeds. The camera is capable of capturing stills as well as high definition 1920 x 1080 video with stereo sound. Additionally, the camera features a built-in GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity as well as a pop-up flash for illumination in low-light scenarios.

For times when you need more reach, the Dynamic Fine Zoom provides an enhanced digital zoom function that doubles your zoom to 60x. The S9700 even works with Nikon's mobile app, allowing for immediate review on your compatible smartphone or tablet for almost instant sharing . And, with the built-in GPS you can view where your images were taken on Google Maps and other websites. The photos themselves can be stored in the internal 329 MB memory or on an SD card (available separately).

16MP Resolution
At the heart of the camera is an 16MP CMOS image sensor that is designed to reduce digital noise, helping you to capture low-light shots without a flash.
3" LCD Display
Equipped with a 3" 921k-dot LCD monitor with 5-level brightness adjustment, the LCD screen features approximately 98% horizontal and 98% vertical coverage in shooting mode, and 100% horizontal coverage in playback mode.
30x NIKKOR ED VR Zoom Lens
The camera has a 30x NIKKOR ED VR zoom lens with an effective focal length range of 4.5-135mm, giving a 35mm equivalent of 25-750mm, which covers wide-angle to telephoto shots with an aperture range of f/3.7-6.4. It features 3 ED lens elements for improving sharpness, color, and image quality.
Wi-Fi Connectivity
Capture an image and quickly send it to your compatible iPhone, Android smartphone, iPad, Android tablet, or other Wi-Fi enabled device, such as your iPod touch. Install the Wireless Mobile Utility application on your smart device and you'll be good to go. Then, use your smart device to email, text, or upload the captured image to social networking or photo album sites.
Built-in Navigational Tools
The built-in GPS, mapping, Electronic Compass and Points of Interest features allow you to create photo journals and maps with your photographs. Share your photo journeys on Google Earth, Google+ and other social media sites, or via the Nikon ViewNX 2 software. The mapping and Electronic Compass functions also help you navigate unfamiliar destinations.
Full HD Movies
Record Full HD 1080p video at 30fps with stereo sound. Then, watch them on your HDTV via the camera's HDMI output, which provides a choice of viewing resolution: Auto, 480p, 720p or 1080i.
Pop-Up Flash
When the light is too low for the CMOS sensor to illuminate your subject on its own, the pop-up TTL auto flash with monitor pre-flashes offers extra illumination.
Easy Panorama Mode
Simply turn on this mode and start panning the camera to automatically record a series of shots and stitch them together into one seamless panoramic image.
Smart Portrait System
Consists of a series of automatic functions enabling better portrait capture, including In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, improved Face-Priority AF, Face Priority AE, Smile Mode, Blink Warning, Skin Softening and D-Lighting.
Scene Auto Selector
Let the camera do the thinking in this mode, while you just concentrate on getting your shot. The camera will recognize the situation and automatically select from six commonly used scene modes, eliminating the mode-setting procedure and streamlining the shooting process.
Subject Tracking
Maintain focus on a moving subject via a contrast detection system, which is based on the principle that the in-focus objects in a scene display the highest contrast.
Continuous Shooting Options
For capturing multiple photos in a fast sequence, the camera offers the following choices: Best Shot Selector, Continuous H, Continuous H 60, Continuous H 120, Continuous L, Multi-shot 16 and Pre-shooting cache.
Image Stabilization
Lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) helps keep your images free of blur, even when your hands are unsteady. When capturing still photos, the camera uses Electronic VR along with the lens-shift VR.
In-Camera Image Editing
Effects at your fingertips include Crop, D-Lighting, Glamour Retouch, Movie Footage Trim, Quick Effects, Quick Retouch, and Small Picture.

I've had my Nikon S9700 for a couple of weeks now, and I literally don't leave home without it. I bought it for travel, to avoid having to carry a DSLR plus extra lens , etc. The 30x zoom, 16 mp, and built-in GPS all led to this decision. And all work as well as I had hoped.

I have attended stage performances of two granddaughters since the purchase, the first on the very day I received it. I was able to get some excellent photos from 40 - 50 feet away, without flash, after some trial and error. One of those is now blown up to 8x10 and is on the living room wall. Second show, similar success, resulting in another 8x10 head shot from similar distance. With the movement in the dance numbers it was difficult, at maximum zoom. But for slow or solo numbers, it worked very well.

I'm still learning the controls and hope to get even better results once I an familiar with all the camera's functions.

As for now, this camera does all I had hoped, and then some.

Only area of complaint: The pop-up flash appears rather flimsy, and is located just where I usually have a finger planted. But time will tell on the former and I will learn to avoid the latter, I hope.

I've had the camera for almost month and took a lot of pictures in Las Vegas. The last day there I noticed that the focusing was not working and the image in the viewfinder was flickering back and forth. When I tried to take a picture it was blurry.
The main reasons I bought this camera was for the WiFi and manual modes. The camera has a lot of bells and whistles but I'm very disappointed in the way it all of a sudden had these malfunctions.
I have several NIKON cameras (DSLR w/lens & Point & Shoot) that I'm very happy with. This one I sent in today for warranty and I'll see how that goes. I'll amend this review after I get it back and get to use it for a while.
I give it 2 stars because I think overall the camera has great potential, but the one I got in particular has issues. Hoping for the best.

          I am enjoying this camera. The salesmen said I am not going to miss my old camera that just broke and he was 100% correct. This camera is easy to use. It allows me to make 3 photos out of each picture by zooming in on part of the picture. It zooms things far away so clearly. It allows me to take clear photos while walking. Very nice!

              Although this camera is a little big for the pocket, it is well worth the extra size. Great zoom, clear images. Ok in low light, but most of the smaller cameras are just ok in low lightl. Easy to use through auto mode or many options for different shooting pre sets and manual controls. So far so good.

              Nikon Coolpix S9700 is a good compact camera with great color definition, great zoom and video and ideal weight for traveling.
              When using flash, you have to be careful with distances from your subject, if your near it will bath it with too much light.
              I have an older Coolpix 5600 which has a museum mode and a copy mode which I miss in S9700, this modes helped in my research in archives where it was permitted to photograph but not photocopy old docs.

              I am leaving for an extended three month, back-packing trip through Europe, summer 2014. I needed a good quality, but light-weight camera that I could carry along with me. The ease and simplicity with which I am able to operate the Nikon S9700 is unequaled. I think it will be the ideal point-and-shoot camera for this epic journey.

                ...I can add that the Camera was fixed by Nikon on warranty and all seems well.
                The lens mechanism was replaced and all other camera mechanicals were check and seem to work well now.
                I really like this camera and expect to get a lot of use out of it from here on in. I hope to use the Manual setting this camera has which was oe of the features I liked.
                As far as B&H I like to use them for online purchases for there prices quick shipping and great website!

                Most point and shoot cameras that I have investigated seem to have too long a shutter lag.
                When checking the specs, the S9700 seemed to have very little delay. Indeed, I love using this "practically no shutter lag" camera.

                I've had the camera for almost month and took a lot of pictures in Las Vegas. The last day there I noticed that the focusing was not working and the image in the viewfinder was flickering back and forth. When I tried to take a picture it was blurry.
                The main reasons I bought this camera was for the WiFi and manual modes. The camera has a lot of bells and whistles but I'm very disappointed in the way it all of a sudden had these malfunctions.
                I have several NIKON cameras (DSLR w/lens & Point & Shoot) that I'm very happy with. This one I sent in today for warranty and I'll see how that goes. I'll amend this review after I get it back and get to use it for a while.
                I give it 2 stars because I think overall the camera has great potential, but the one I got in particular has issues. Hoping for the best.

                  I bought this camera for personal pleasure and do get back into photography that I used to do when darkrooms were popular. This camera is easy to handle, great quality, lightweight,excellent options. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to take great photos with an easy to camera that gives professional quality pics.

                  Comments about COOLPIX S9700 Digital Camera (Black):

                  I've had my Nikon S9700 for a couple of weeks now, and I literally don't leave home without it. I bought it for travel, to avoid having to carry a DSLR plus extra lens , etc. The 30x zoom, 16 mp, and built-in GPS all led to this decision. And all work as well as I had hoped.

                  I have attended stage performances of two granddaughters since the purchase, the first on the very day I received it. I was able to get some excellent photos from 40 - 50 feet away, without flash, after some trial and error. One of those is now blown up to 8x10 and is on the living room wall. Second show, similar success, resulting in another 8x10 head shot from similar distance. With the movement in the dance numbers it was difficult, at maximum zoom. But for slow or solo numbers, it worked very well.

                  I'm still learning the controls and hope to get even better results once I an familiar with all the camera's functions.

                  As for now, this camera does all I had hoped, and then some.

                  Only area of complaint: The pop-up flash appears rather flimsy, and is located just where I usually have a finger planted. But time will tell on the former and I will learn to avoid the latter, I hope.

                        I bought this because my wife wanted a good small camera to toss in her purse. Optics are very good for a very small package and the zoom serves most purposes.
                        The camera is pretty quick and takes nice clear images.

                          I purchased this Coolpix S9700 camera to replace an S9300 model. The longer focal range is nice, but you really need a tripod to use the longer ranges. The video performance is great for a camera of this size. Very easy to use and seems to be much steadier than my previous camera. The best thing that I like is the increased versatility of the adjustments. I have used a DSLR camera for years and this is the first small camera that I have had that has most of the adjustability of a DSLR. I am impressed.

                          I bought this point & shoot camera for a Spring Break trip to New York City and Washington DC. It's a great little camera that easy to carry around and take site seeing pictures of all the great places we went too. The 30x optical zoom works great for all those shots you have to take from a long away place.
                          The main draw backs to this camera is that its hard to hold onto with one hand and when you try to hold it with both hands the finger of your left hand falls right on top of the popup flash. This is a bad design and will take special attention not to put your finger over the popup flash. If you forget and the flash tries to popup and cannot do so, it locks the camera from taking a picture. Nikon needs to correct this bad design.
