Nikon Coolpix S9500

 

Nikon's Coolpix S9500 is a fully loaded pocket camera with a huge zoom range and a sharp lens, but it doesn't quite edge out our Editors' Choice.

Very sharp lens. 22x zoom range. Short shutter lag. Wi-Fi and GPS. Sharp OLED display.

Detail suffers at high ISO settings. No manual shooting modes. Off-center tripod socket. In-camera battery charging.

Wi-Fi and GPS are integrated, which is fairly common for cameras of this class. GPS automatically adds your geographic location to your photos. And Wi-Fi allows you to transfer images to your iOS or Android device using the free Nikon Wireless Mobile...

Nikon Coolpix S9500 ( Red)

 

The lens is 100mm longer than the one on last year's model, the S9300 , going from 25mm to 550mm, and the resolution has been bumped up to 18 megapixels. OK, so those don't necessarily make it a better camera, but if you're trying to get people...

The well-priced Nikon Coolpix S9500 has an impressive zoom range for its size and weight. It has a full assortment of automatic shooting options and can capture HD movies as well as slow-motion clips. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to directly send photos...

Picture quality drops off indoors or in low-light conditions. Autofocus can be finicky under those conditions as well as when fully zoomed in. If semimanual and manual controls are a necessity you're out of luck, and its flash is poorly placed.

With its long lens and compact size, plus extras like built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, the Nikon Coolpix S9500 is a very good point-and-shoot travel companion.

The Nikon Coolpix S9500 might not be a standout in the compact megazoom category, but it's not an also-ran, either.

Nikon Coolpix S9500 Review

Large 22x optical zoom lens in a thin camera is a great feature ; Image quality is good with sharp photos and realistic colors ; 18MP of resolution is available ; Plenty of aspect ratio and resolution options ; Start-up time is very fast ; Almost no...

No advanced manual control options ; Very limited shooting modes ; Uses small 1/2.3-inch image sensor ; Menu structure is a little tough to navigate ; Selections included on mode dial are odd ; Battery life should be better ; No separate battery...

Nikon Coolpix S9500 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S9500 is a slim and stylish travel-zoom digital compact camera. Sporting a back-illuminated 18 megapixel CMOS image sensor for low light photography and a 22x, 25mm wide-angle lens with lens-shift vibration reduction, the Coolpix...

The Coolpix S9500 is Nikon's best travel-zoom camera, adding wi-fi connectivity, GPS tracking and a bigger 22x zoom lens when compared to the slightly cheaper S9400 model, all at a competitive price that undercuts its main rivals.

Nikon Coolpix S9500

 

The Nikon Coolpix S9500 is a pocket-size camera that manages to squeeze an 18-megapixel image sensor, a GPS radio, Wi-Fi, and a long 22x lens into a slim form factor. It's a stylish design that can snap sharp photos in automatic mode, but it doesn't...

Nikon Coolpix S9500

 

Nikon's latest travel zoom doesn't stun with specs, but it's available at a nice price.

For all the faults, annoyances, and shortcomings of the Nikon Coolpix S9500, it's actually not a bad bet for a point-and-shoot. At a $349.95 sticker price, it doesn't quite deliver all that we had hoped. However, cameras like this tend to drop in price...

Nikon Coolpix S9500

 

Is there still a case for compact cameras? A 22x optical zoom helps make one

Impressive focusing system, Good image quality, Large focal length, Good battery life

Awkward pop-up flash position, No viewfinder, iA performance is somewhat tardy

Nikon Coolpix S9500 review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S9500 fits into that smartphone-won't-cut-it bracket: its 22x optical zoom lens not only means wide-angle shots can be captured, but those far away subjects are also well within reach. It's a straightforward point-and-shoot model that...

Wide-raging zoom, battery lasted out well, exposure compensation available, in-camera effects available

Stabilisation system not great at longer zooms, image quality issues, no manual modes, opts for excessively low shutter speeds, inconsistent white balance, shutter lag

If you're after a point-and-shoot camera then the Nikon Coolpix S9500 may well have surfaced on your shortlist. We can see why too: it's got a reasonable-sounding feature set; it's small yet has a significant 22x optical zoom lens in tow; and the...

Nikon Coolpix S9500 review

 

Nikon compact packs in the features and zooms with style

640k-dot OLED screen ; 22x optical zoom ; GPS capability

No touchscreen ; No manual controls ; No raw capture

A good update to the existing Style range of Coolpix cameras, the Nikon S9500 brings the shooting features we are starting to expect of a digital compact, including HD video, outstanding image stabilisation and Wi-Fi capabilities. The range of...
