S9100 settings recommendations
I asked a similar question a few months ago about this camera and had almost no response. For some reason it appears to be deeply unloved by users of this forum. Yet the fact is that it has an enormous zoom range, a very reasonable video and gives generally very good images as long as you do not want to enlarge them too much. Above all it fits very nicely into a small camera case (I use a Lowepro Santiago 20) which will allow it to fit in a jeans pocket.
My only personal recommendations are to underexpose by a third of a stop and also the best shot sequence BSS is well worth trying out. But it's a pity there is not a webpage somewhere detailing tricks and tips for this machine.
