The silver COOLPIX S9500 Digital Camera from Nikon is a point-and-shoot with an 18.1MP CMOS image sensor that enables you to capture low-light shots without a flash. When the light is just too low, the pop-up TTL auto flash is there to provide extra illumination. The camera features a large 3" 614K-dot OLED display. A member of Nikon's Ultra-Slim Zoom collection, the S9500 is equipped with a 22x NIKKOR ED VR zoom lens that has an effective focal length range of 4.5-99mm (35mm equivalent: 25-550mm), covering wide-angle to telephoto shots, and an aperture range of f/3.4-6.3. Lens-shift and Electronic Vibration Reduction (VR) help keep your images free of blur, even when your hands are unsteady.

Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, you can capture an image and instantly send it to your compatible iPhone or Android smartphone, iPad or Android tablet, or other Wi-Fi enabled device, such as your iPod touch. Once you install the Wireless Mobile Utility application on your smart device, you'll be good to go. Then, use your smart device to email, text, or upload your image to your favorite social networking or photo album sites.

The built-in GPS, mapping, Electronic Compass and Points of Interest (POI) features let you create photo journals, recording the exact location of each shot you take--so you can follow the path of your adventure. Share your photo journeys on Google Earth, Google+ and other social media sites, or with the included Nikon View NX2 software. The mapping and Electronic Compass functions also help you navigate unfamiliar destinations, and Points of Interest (POI) show you nearby photo-ops, e.g., scenic lookouts and historic landmarks.

With the COOLPIX S9500, you can also record Full HD 1080p video and capture panoramic landscape and 3D shots.

Pop-Up Flash
When the light is too low for the CMOS sensor to illuminate your subject on its own, the pop-up TTL auto flash with monitor pre-flashes offers extra illumination

Simply turn on this mode and start panning the camera to automatically record a series of shots and stitch them together into one seamless panoramic image
3D Mode
Captures two images that are then played back together on a 3D-compatible TV or computer monitor for stereoscopic viewing, resulting in a three-dimensional effect
Motion Blur Reduction
The Motion Detection feature for still images compensates for subject movement, allowing you to capture sharp photos without blur

Subject Tracking
Maintain focus on a moving subject via a contrast detection system, which is based on the principle that the in-focus objects in a scene display the highest contrast
Continuous Shooting Options
For capturing multiple photos in a fast sequence, the camera offers the following choices: Best Shot Selector, Continuous H, Continuous H 60, Continuous H 120, Continuous L, Multi-shot 16 and Pre-shooting cache
Clear Color Display

    I needed a small fast, camera with a powerfull zoom to carry around and be satisfied with the picture quality in the end. I did not get a chance to use the sports capabilities but so far all other features are up to my expectations. I would have preferred the camera to be a little lighter and smaller to fit in my jacket pocket but I do not consider this a burden due to quality.

    I wanted a point and shoot that would be easy and readily available to "point and shoot", this camera is not it. I have had other point and shoots that took great pics. This camera consistently comes up with blurry photos. It is easy to work, but that is of no use if you can't get a clear picture.
    However, the video is fantastic, very clear, zooms in great without any loss of clarity. But I have a video camera.
    My cell phone takes better pictures than this camera, I plan on sending it back.
    Also, the flash pops up right where you need to hold the camera and there is no where else to hold it.
    Finally, the camera does feel very sturdy, if you just barely hit the top of it, it turns on. I have heard a clicking in my purse and that was the camera which had turned on and the zoom was trying to go out, causing an error message. I was afraid this tore it up. I would rather have an actual switch to turn it on and off rather than a sensitive button.

          Comments about COOLPIX S9500 Digital Camera (Red):

          This camera is very versatile for its compact carry size. The optical telephoto allows for great closeups of distant subjects. Night video is clean and zooms well. The flash is bright enough for a large group shot indoors.
          I also carry a Nikon AW100 for rain, dust, underwater/pool shots, and especially for the beach since dust or fine sand could foul the zoom mechanism of the S9500. Both cameras use the same battery, so I always have a backup battery by carrying both (although I have had no problem with battery life).

              I bought this camera for still and video use because it has a large zoom. The video feature is great but the photos are not as crisp and clear as I think they should be. Also, the flash is where my left hand holds the camera so it prevents the flash from popping up when needed. I have a Canon point and shoot I think takes much better pictures.

              This is truly a must have camera, when on travel with limited space. Compact, light, and fits the pocket.On my recent Cruise, without the use of the flash, I took amazing pictures within the ship, on the shore trips, in dark shadow jungle places, recorded native dances, shot fast movinganimals,in very bright settings.I was amazed, that when I returned to the ship toedit the shots I may have wanted to remove, there were none, I wanted to keep them all.This camera was an excellent choice.

              I really like this camera. The zoom is great for a point and shoot. Charger is very convenient for travel, the cord plugs right into the camera and will plug into a standard USB plug, so I can just use it with my ipod/ipad plug.

              The one thing I don't like about it is if you use the flash, the flash won't automatically retract, it has to be manually pushed back down.

              I also don't care for the battery charger indicator. Instead of having the indicator like my previous cameras did, you really don't get a lot of warning if the battery is almost dead.

                  Comments about COOLPIX S9500 Digital Camera (Black):

                  This is my second Nikon Coolpix S series The thing that I can point out about it is that the pictures in low light makes spectacular. Even in daylight to improved too much about her younger sisters. The definition of the images is quite good and the macros are also great. Greatly improved the definition in images with high zoom, my previous Coolpix lost a lot of quality. I have not yet used it enough, but for now I'm enjoying it.

                    Comments about COOLPIX S9500 Digital Camera (Black):

                    I wanted a point and shoot that would be easy and readily available to "point and shoot", this camera is not it. I have had other point and shoots that took great pics. This camera consistently comes up with blurry photos. It is easy to work, but that is of no use if you can't get a clear picture.
                    However, the video is fantastic, very clear, zooms in great without any loss of clarity. But I have a video camera.
                    My cell phone takes better pictures than this camera, I plan on sending it back.
                    Also, the flash pops up right where you need to hold the camera and there is no where else to hold it.
                    Finally, the camera does feel very sturdy, if you just barely hit the top of it, it turns on. I have heard a clicking in my purse and that was the camera which had turned on and the zoom was trying to go out, causing an error message. I was afraid this tore it up. I would rather have an actual switch to turn it on and off rather than a sensitive button.

                      Very good at high ISO, a telephoto that reaches out, Nikon quality, easy to make menu changes, fine pictures in a tiny packable camera.

                      I USE THIS CAMERA WHEN I DONT WANT TO LUG MY BIG CAMERAS AND STILL WANT TO GET SOME GREAT PICTURES. FOR FAMILY EVENTS , WOODWARD CRUISE , THE ZOO, ECT. What is great about this camera is the great zoom lens , takes some wonderful long distance pictures without lose of detail, it's a light camera but build very well, lacks some manual controls, the wifi was misleading..battery dies pretty quick, about 170 pics. but I love this camera...

                      I got this camera a little over a week ago and I absolutely LOVE it. I have taken it to a museum and 3 concerts taking over 1,800 pictures and 5 videos. The zoom is incredible even with the lighting at concerts. The digital zoom takes a little getting used to as it is a little off in the display. I have yet to print any pictures but I am sure they will be great. I look forward to taking this camera on vacation next week. It is a great point and shoot camera and easy to carry and use. I purchased two extra batteries and have not used them up even in a 6 hour concert shooting over 600 pictures.

                        As a professional canon user, it about killed me to buy a Nikon, but I needed a nice pocket camera for a trip as so not to have to haul a full body SLR around and comparatively speaking; Canon doesn't even come close with their products for this type of camera. I love the Wifi feature that allows you to control the camera from your Iphone. Geo-tagging is also a great feature. Nice zoom considering it's not 88 mm diameter glass. 18 Mpix Jpeg provides for plenty cropping room. Pretty fast shutter response for a non-SLR. Lots of great presets for amateur use.

                        I purchased this camera for my son to carry on a last minute trip to Israel. While it is easy to use in auto mode, it provides an amazing range of manual options. If he decides to return it to me I think I will begin a month long project a la Henry Cartier Bresson.

                        The camera is small but easy to work with; when it is off it closes down in a manner allowing it to be pocketed.

                        When it turns on it is ready to shoot almost immediately; we were driving along the blue ridge parkway and Bambi came out of the woods to nibble on some local flora. I coasted back toward him and my son whipped out the camera and got a tack-sharp image even in a very difficult lighting situation. VERY IMPRESSIVE!!!

                        And as an added feature I ordered at the last minute and B&H got it to me overnight in excellent condition with all components new and ready to go.

                          This is probably the greatest value you can get for your money. It delivers highest quality image comparable with a SLR and the zooming capabilities are one of the best in its class.

                          Like the camera and the quality of the pictures but HATE the placement of the flash. It's exactly where the left hand needs to be to hold the camera steady. I would recommend the camera but tell anyone to try it first to see if the flash placement causes problems with their holding of the camera.
