Nikon's 2014 compact zoom, the S9700, looks to have an excellent set of features for the $350 retail price tag. The S9700 features the same 16.1 megapixel 1/2.3 sensor as Nikon's bulkier and pricer P520 and P600 ($450 and $500 retail, respectively). While the 30x zoom is smaller than the camera giant's extended zoom cameras, this one is small enough to fit in a pocket (note: we don't recommend storing cameras in pockets). This small shooter has a 5 fps burst mode for capturing action and wi-fi to share it almost instantly. Surprisingly, this $350 compact also includes manual modes. Like most smaller cameras though, there's no viewfinder. Overall, the camera looks to be excellent for the price.
