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.

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: 
The COOLPIX S6500 can be used with or without a memory card. However, the number of images that can be stored on the S6500's internal memory will vary depending on your image settings - about 5 images can be saved with the camera at its default settings. This number can be increased by changing the S6500's image mode settings to smaller image sizes, but image quality will decline with a decrease in image size.

A list of approved memory cards for the COOLPIX S6500 can be found on page 22 of the Technical Notes and Index section of the S6500 manual.

See page 49 of the reference section of the S6500 manual for a chart showing the approximate number of images that can be saved to a 4GB card at different image mode settings.

When the camera is powered on but inactive for a time it goes into a sleep mode (screen goes dark). When I try to wake the camera by pressing once on the shutter button, the camera takes a long time to wake up. I'd say its at least 3 seconds. It just seems abnormally slow. Is there anything that I can do to speed it up?

I'm very happy with everything else about this camera, but the slow wake time is just really frustrating.

Answer: 
The S6500 cannot connect to the internet if that is what you are asking. The Wi-Fi feature of the camera allows smart devices such as iPhone/Ipad and adroid Phone/Tablets to connect to the camera and control the shutter or transfer pictures to the smart device wirelessly.

The Wireless Mobile Utility application must be installed on a compatible smart device before it can be used with a Nikon COOLPIX camera having built-in Wi-Fi. The application can be downloaded free of charge on Google Play™ on your Android device running Android 2.3 or later (smartphone) or Android 3.0 or later (tablet). For the iOS mobile platform, the application can be downloaded free of charge from the iTunes® online store for use with iOS version 6.0 or later.

Answer: 
The S6500 Wi-FI options will not be be available when an HDMI or USB cable is plug into the camera, if there is not a memory card in camera, if you have an Eye-FI card in the camera, or if the battery is not fully change.

90 percent of the time, this issue is cause by the memory card, or the battery not being fully charge.

Answer: 
When the built-in panorama application detects it is unable to connect images, shooting stops. The function also depends on rotation speed or shooting environment.
The closer shooting distance tends to fail in connecting images while the longer shooting distance can get relatively better images.
Using a tripod is recommended for panorama shooting.

I have a new Nikon Coolpix S6500 (red) camera and generally like it a lot. We have noticed on more than one occasion the camera freezing up if we attempt to take a picture, or display (play) previously taken pictures too soon after powering it on. Is this normal? We're using a SanDisk SDHC I, 30mb/sec 32GB SD card rated with a speed of 10. The card had roughly a few hundred pictures and a half dozen short (less than 15 minutes) videos. There was a lot of room left on the card, and we formatted the card in the camera before using it. The behavior allows you to actively view the on screen viewfinder, but we're unable to get the camera to take a picture, video, or play content from the SD card. The only way I've found to get out of this frozen state is to remove the battery and try again. I find if I wait a little after power up, it behaves better.

Answer: 
From your description of the problem, It could be the memory card that is causing the issue, and you may need to get a new one. Transfer all the files from the card to your computer, and format the memory card in the camera. You can also try using the camera for a while without a memory card in it, or if possible try a different memory card to see how the camera performs. If the issue persist, please contact Nikon technical support for assistance.

Answer: 
The battery life of the EN-EL19 battery in the COOLPIX S6500 is approximately 150 still shots. For longer shooting sesssions the optional EH-62C AC Adapter can be used to power the S6500 from an AC power source.

For a COOLPIX camera with similar features and a longer battery life check out the COOLPIX S9500 which uses the EN-EL12 battery and can shoot approximately 230 still shots per charge.

**Based on CIPA industry standard for measuring life of camera batteries. Measured at 23°C (+/-3°C); zoom adjusted with each shot, built-in flash fired with every other shot, image mode set to Normal. In a cold environment, the number of shots may decrease according to the battery characteristics.

Answer: 
The Wi-Fi option in the S6500 menu will be greyed out if there is no memory card inserted in the camera or if an Eye-Fi card is inserted in the camera. Also, since Wi-Fi will add to the camera's power usage, be sure to have a fully charged battery in the camera when using this feature. With an approved memory card and a fully charged battery inserted you should be able to access the S6500's Wi-Fi settings and turn the on the Wi-Fi.

Detailed instructions on using the Wi-Fi feature of the COOLPIX S6500 start on page 107 if the S6500 manual. A copy of the S6500 manual can be downloaded from here:https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

Answer: 
Having a "Lens error" message display on the camera's LCD display indicates a problem with the camera lens mechanism. This situation generally requires that the camera be sent to a Nikon Service Department for repair. Before doing this however, be sure to check these situations below:

One possible reason for this error is if the camera is switched on and the lens unit is prevented from extending. The camera will struggle for a second to extend the lens, then report the problem. Inspect the lens for any obvious obstruction, then turn the camera off, then on again. Usually, simply switching the camera Off then On again is enough to correct this problem.
Remove and recharge the battery. Retest.
If this does not help, then we regret the camera must be sent to our Nikon Service department as there are no user serviceable parts on Nikon Coolpix cameras.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will do everything we can to repair your Nikon camera as quickly as possible.

Answer: 
The S6500 internal memory is approximately 25mb . If you intend to take many pictures and later transfer them to your computer, a memory card is recommended. The WI-FI feature of the camera which allows you to control the Shutter with a smart device or transfer pictures wirelessly to a smart device requires a memory card. A memory card of class 6 or higher is recommened for video recording.

Answer: 
With a Booklet printing software you can create your own manual and fold it up, You can cut those 200 pages down to about 50. Nikon store paper manual are in the link below but I do not see your camera or any new camera listed.

I am interested in buying the Nikon COOLPIX S6500 for an upcoming trip, but will mostly be in areas with no wi-fi and want to know if I can save battery power by turning off the wi-fi until I need it for transfer of my photos at the end of the day.

Does the S6500 store more than 1 video? I recorded 3 videos. When I started a new video it appeared to write over the previuos video. Also a fully charged battery last only 45 minutes, is that normal battery life?

We have two small children who are constantly on the go. We would like to know the best setting to capture our children in action. Often times, we are missing great photo opportunities because the camera is taking far too long to snap the picture.

Answer: 
The COOLPIX S6500 has preset scene modes such as "sports" to capture movement. There is also a setting in the shooting menu that can capture a continuous shot by holding down the shutter button.

My S6500 does not always set the orientation of the picture to portrait or landscape based on the camera position. Is this a setting or a problem?

Answer: 
With the COOLPIX S6500 the orientation in playback will be landscape. If the image is portrait and during playback it is landscape, once uploaded to the computer it may need to be rotated properly to the correct orientation.
