Small but mighty

The S9100 is an impressive wee camera, which manages to pack 18x optical, zoom into a body just a little bigger than the average compact. It's all thanks to the Nikkor wide-angle lens.

The camera is also rocking the back-lit CMOS sensor so you can get your full HD video kicks and watch them back on the 3-inch hi-res LCD screen.
