Frame the perfect shot

12x wide-angle NIKKOR glass zoom lens gets you closer to the action

Every COOLPIX is designed around a genuine NIKKOR glass lens, the legendary optics that have made Nikon famous. The COOLPIX S6500 12x zoom NIKKOR lens is great for everything from wide-angle group shots to close-up portraits. Plus, lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps keep every shot steady, even if your hands are not.

Superior low-light performance

High-performance CMOS image sensor lets you shoot without a flash

Imagine being able to shoot without a flash at weddings, concerts, parties—anywhere your flash normally fires. You won't have to interrupt a moment to capture it, and your photos and HD videos will look more natural and true to your memory. The COOLPIX S6500 performs so well in low light situations that, in most cases, using the flash is optional. Of course, when the lighting is extremely poor and you need a flash, it'll be there.

Freeze action in its tracks

Hold down the shutter button and fire up to 7 continuous shots per second

Create amazing action sequences with the touch of a button. When the action speeds up, just hold down the shutter button and fire off up to 7 continuous shots per second. You'll get views of fast-moving subjects you may never have seen.

Focus where you want it

Kids and pets are always on the go. Fortunately, the COOLPIX S6500 includes Subject Tracking, which automatically locks onto a moving subject and keeps it in focus until you're ready to take the shot.

Flatter your friends and family

Create beautiful photos of the people you care about. Smart Portrait System activates several features ideal for portraits, like Face Priority AF, Skin Softening, Blink Warning and more.

Let the camera call the shots

Easily match your situation to one of 20 Scene Modes like Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, Sunset and enjoy effortless shooting. Or, choose Scene Auto Selector and let the camera choose for you.

Dazzle with every shot

Create truly exceptional photos and Full HD videos in nearly any light. A 16-megapixel CMOS low-light image sensor delivers superior image quality, versatility and low-light performance.

User Friendly Even I can do it! (I am technologically challenged.) Actually, this is my second Coolpix S6500. I unfortunately lost my first, and immediately went out and purchased the same to replace it. August 23, 2014
A Gift of Anguish Received this camera 1 year 3 months ago as a gift. Used it outside of the house 3x's after researching how to use it because the provided instructions are minimal at best. ("how to use features" may have been written in another language that completes 75% of these instructions) Now all the camera does is "Lens Fail" when turned on. Nikon wants $79 + S&H to fix it? I'm now a proud owner of a $170 "door stop"! Thanks Nikon .....Now Nikon is asking me MORE information about myself to complete this review, THAN the instructions that came with this product! July 26, 2014
Lens Problems & Poor Support We have owned two of these cameras. They provide everything we look for in a simple point and shoot. However both cameras have developed lens problems. On the first the telescopic function often malfunctions. On the other, the lens aperture does not close completely. On the second, it failed within the warranty period. I mailed to the service center address provided with the warranty. After 3 weeks it was returned by USPS as undeliverable. I called support. She promised to e-mail the correct address. I never received it. I registered at the Nikon site and asked for the correct address. Three days later, I have not received it. I called support again and asked for the address over the phone. I have mailed the camera to the new address at my expense (twice). Let's see what happens now. July 9, 2014
Junk This is my second Nikon. I am going to wait to complete my review until I see how the service is. June 24, 2014
Best little camera ever I have taken great pictures in all kinds of conditions - sun - rain - low light, sunset - museum I like to backpack this is light and small enough to take anywhere I like this camera so much when I lost the 1st one in a museum, I purchased the same thing.... June 22, 2014

Answer: 
When using Wi-Fi feature of the camera please be sure that the Wireless Mobile Utility App is installed onto the iOS/Android smart device. Please make sure that there is an approved memory card and a full battery in the camera. Once these steps are fulfilled, go to the set up menu of the camera where it will have the Wi-Fi Options. Once selected on, the Wi-Fi network of the camera will need to be selected by going to the Wi-Fi settings of the iOS/Android smart device. Once the Wi-Fi is turned on on the smart device, open the Wireless Mobile Utility App (WMU) and begin to transfer images. For more information please call 1-800-NIKONUS!

Answer: 
Unfortunately I don't think you will have much success with the S6500.There is no way to hold the shutter open long enough. In fireworks show mode the shutter only remains open 4 seconds If you want to try it, first the camera must be on a tripod, set the mode to fireworks and use the self timer to release the shutter.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX S6500 does not have the ability to change the aperture manually. Macro mode will usually give you a depth of field effect but this mode may not work for all the situations in which you might want to achieve depth of field with the COOLPIX S6500. To decrease your depth of field experiement with zooming your camera to its longest focal length (without using digital zoom) and getting closer to your subject.

I have the S6500 and the zoom is not working on it anymore. It was purchased back in mid February (2014). I tried using the zoom at a concert on 3/29 and it just wouldn't work. But it worked a week preior to that.

I've emailed Nikon support, but was going to see if anybody else had an issue.

Answer: 
Older digital cameras developed around the time of Windows 98 / 98SE / ME may have required the installation of the camera manufacturers' driver to allow communication between the device and computer, but newer operating systems include built in libraries full of drivers for most devices available today. Most new computers contain everything you need to just plug in your camera and offload your images without the need to install additional software. Since earlier operating systems such as Windows ME and Mac OS 9, there has been built-in support for digital imaging devices. Just plug in your camera, and open My Computer (Windows) or the Finder (Mac) to "see" your camera. For more information please see this article on When to download and install digital camera drivers: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

Answer: 
To enable the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi, press the MENU button to display the menus, then highlight Wi-Fi Options in the setup menu and turn it ON. You will see that the camera is beginning to search for the smart device. On an iOS-powered device, you will need to go into settings and select Wi-Fi. Select the camera’s Wi-Fi Network or SSID, which will begin with the name Nikon followed by an alpha-numeric string. Connecting the camera's built-in Wi-Fi to your smart device is simple. It is automatic with an Android™-powered smart device. For iOS users, go to Settings on your phone, into the Wi-Fi settings, and select the Netowrk SSID. It begins with the name Nikon followed by a string of letters and numbers. Once you've selected the Network SSID, you can open the Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility app on the smart device, as the connection is now established. To ensure that the connections stays, COOLPIX cameras must have a media card in the camera for Wi-Fi options to be accessible; and the camera’s battery must have at least 50% charge.

Answer: 
With COOLPIX cameras the best way to take images of Fireworks would be by utilizing the Firework scene mode. This scene mode uses slow shutter speeds to capture the exploding bursts of fireworks. A tripod is essential here, too, and it's a good idea to release the shutter via the self-timer to keep the camera as steady as possible.
