After a long period of time in which Nikon was practically out of the game, in regards to compact cameras, it's now safe to say - they're back.

Important Note: the S9100 was replaced by the Nikon Coolpix S9300 (compare ).

Preview:
(previews are based on camera specifications only, and do not include personal hands-on whatsoever).

The S9100 is the best example of how strong a competitor Nikon has become to the previously undeniable market leaders - Canon and Panasonic.

Panasonic's flagship camera is the new ZS10 (compare ) from Canon comes the new SX230 (compare ) and from Sony - the HX9V (compare ). The S9100's every parameter matches or exceeds that of those three cameras.

There are two exceptions to that last statement - the first is the built-in GPS offered by all three models - the ZS10, the SX230 and the HX9V. The second exception is the ZS10's and SX230's manual controls over exposure, which the S9100 and the HX9v don't provide.

Other than that, the S9100's has a larger zoom, a higher resolution (921k 3") lcd and its announced street price is actually lower.

In other aspects, all four cameras have full HD 1080 video with stereo sound and a functional optical zoom during video, a MOS sensor and body weight (including the battery) just over 200 grams.

It seems all three companies did their best to create a new market leading compact zoom. All trendy features were included, CCD sensors were replaced by CMOS ones, lenses became wider and zooms larger.

The S9100 checks the list in all the right places. For everyone looking for an all automatic, feature rich, extra long zoom compact camera, it very well may be Nikon's step in the right direction to the compact zoom throne.
