Capture distant images with a 22x wide-angle to telephoto NIKKOR glass zoom lens

The COOLPIX S9500 features a 22x zoom NIKKOR lens that takes you from wide-angle group shots to telephoto close-ups in an instant. And don't worry about a little camera shake—lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps keep the shot steady even when your hands are not.

Share amazing photos in an instant

Built-in Wi-Fi® for easily sharing your shots anytime, anywhere

The COOLPIX S9500 makes it easier than ever to share beautiful views of your world. Take a great shot and instantly send it to your compatible smartphone, tablet, or any compatible Wi-Fi® device. Then use your smart device to email it, text it, or upload it to your favorite social networking or photo album sites—share it the same way you normally share online. Your friends and family will be amazed by the shots you share!

See where you've been

Built-in GPS, mapping, E-Compass and Points of Interest (POI) for creating amazing photo journals

Relive the excitement of your travels in a whole new way. The COOLPIX S9500 records the exact location of each shot you take, so you can follow the path of your adventure and every stunning view along the way! Share your photo journeys on Google Earth™, Google+™ and other social media sites, or with the included Nikon View NX2 software. Built-in mapping and Electronic Compass also helps you navigate unfamiliar destinations, and Points of Interest (POI) show you nearby photo-ops like scenic lookouts and historic landmarks. The COOLPIX S9500 is the ultimate travel companion!

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 S9500 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.

Turn some heads

Sleek, stylish design that fits in your pocket

Form and function can play nicely together, and the COOLPIX S9500 is proof. Ultra-thin and lightweight, it fits comfortably in your pocket or purse. But you won't want to hide it there—every time you pull out the COOLPIX S9500, you can expect someone to comment on its good looks. Consider it a stylish accessory for your already fashionable life.

Enjoy the view

Compose, review and share your photos and Full HD videos on a vibrant, high-resolution 3.0-inch 614,000-dot OLED display.

Dazzle with every shot

Create truly exceptional photos and Full HD videos in nearly any light. An 18.1-megapixel CMOS low-light image sensor delivers superior image quality, versatility and low-light performance.

Incredible panoramas made easy

Faced with an amazing panoramic view? Simply turn on Easy Panorama mode and start panning the camera. The COOLPIX S9500 will automatically record a series of shots and then stitch them together into one incredible, seamless panoramic photo.

Flatter your friends and family

like the sizes and easy to use. My COOLPIX S9500 has been doing a fine job recording my travels around the world. It's small sizes makes it easy to cary anywhere. August 24, 2014
So Happy! I bought this camera for a trip to Tanzania and the Serengeti without knowing anything about it. I was thrilled with the pictures I captured, often from a moving vehicle. The videos were also wonderful. I will treasure these pictures for a lifetime. The camera is light, compact, and sooooooo easy to use, even for a novice. The pictures are clear and when enlarged are so clear that eyelashes can be seen on the giraffe and the fur and spots on a cheeta come into view. Did I say I was Happy? March 11, 2014
Excellent camera for the money..... I have used Nikon for years like the S2 & D70 with great success. I purchased the S9500 and it is the best small camera I have seen to date. Even though I adjusted the color to be a little more vivid the pictures are outstanding. The scene dial on top makes changes easy and the Wifi is out of this world. To download to my smartphone with no cables is great. I love that you can put the camera anywhere and control it remotely by your smartphone. The 22x zoom lens is excellent. The GPS is a bonus. When you pickup the S9500 you can feel the quality with a metal body. Most small cameras are cheap plastic .The best of all is when I shut off the flash and shot in the evening when the light is low, the pictures are still great. Nikon keep it up, to me you are still truly the best. January 1, 2014
New User! I've had my Coolpix for a couple of days, but I am REALLY impressed!! Thanks so much! November 30, 2013
Clear, crisp pictures Great Zoom. Used it for the first time today. I was told by Dodd Camera that it would be even better than the camera that I was replacing. (I dropped it when the lens was extended.) They were right. November 25, 2013

The camera will freeze up randomly. The lens keeps working but there are no buttons you can push or dials you can turn to unfreeze the screen (Stays frozen like it was trying to focus on a shot). The only way to reset is to open up the trap door and pop out the battery. I even turned all GPS type functions off and it still did it.

Answer: 
Hi all,

I have bought the S9500 a month ago and experiencing the same problem. Only removing the battery resolves the problem. It happens sometimes after one or two shots.

No resolution yet but it seems to get less frequently when the setting vibration reduction is set to: Hybrid. For what it is worth until nikon comes with a good selution.

Good luck and Nikon, please help.

I am able to connect the s9500 to my iPad via wifi, but when I select a photo and attempt to transfer (download) it to the iPad via wifi, the transfer appears to begin (see graphic) but then stops, hangs, and never finishes. I'm apparently very close to success. What step or setting do I need to change?

PS - I am using a 32gb Class 10 Transcend SD card. I tried a SanDisk card, but with the same results.

Suggestions?

Answer: 
Hi Chelsea, thanks for your input. If you look at the graphic, I think you could see that I have no problem connecting the camera to the iPad (or viewing the photos). What I can't get it to do is successfully transfer the files from the camera to the iPad. The software and wifi connection seems to be working fine. I tried an approved card in my camera, no difference. I tried my card in a different camera, and it worked great. The evidence points (in my opinion) to some sort of fault in sending with the S9500. ???

Answer: 
Please make sure that when connecting the COOLPIX S9500 and performing a transfer there is an approved memory card, a full battery on the camera as well as the iOS/Android smart device. Select the COOLPIX S9500 network in the network settings of the smart device. Once the network is selected and the connection is made, try to transfer the images.
