If this Nikon camera display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the 240 HS (3.2" and higher rated), or the ELPH 320 HS (3.2" and higher rated) both from Canon or the Nikon Df (£2,039) (3.2" and higher rated).

Lens System

Average Optical Zoom

The Nikon S9200 has a pretty typical optical zoom (18 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other cameras of this age and spec.

We compared all the other 18x optical zoom digital cameras to this digital camera and we think the Nikon S9300 (£229.18) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this Nikon camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Lumix DMC-TZ56 (20x and higher rated), or the DMC-TZ35 (20x and higher rated) both from Panasonic or the Fujifilm FinePix F750EXR (20x and higher rated).

Average Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 4 times zoom factor, the Nikon S9200 has a pretty average digital zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec cameras that have been around for more than two years.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 4x digital zoom digital cameras and we think because of their better review scores, the Nikon L120, the Canon SX150 IS, and the Olympus SZ-31MR iHS are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to consider the WB250 (5x and higher rated), or the SAMSUNG ST66 (5x and higher rated) both from Samsung or the HP P550 (5x and higher rated).
