Good camera, but could be more impressed.
Comments about Nikon Coolpix S9500 18.1 MP Point & Shoot Digital Camera - Black:
Got this camera before going on a 2 year trip expecting it would be an excellent investment that would last me these next 2 years and thousands of photos. However less than a year in and this camera has terrible power issues. Sent it in twice to get repaired before it finally seemed to have the issue resolved and I discovered others have had similar issues with the type of battery used for this model and other models. The pictures are great quality but not my wildest dreams or anything. The protective case it came with also was a disappointment as I took my camera out and found the screen cracked. I would definitely look elsewhere to see what other options are available if this is in your price range. Something more dependable and higher quality is probably available. Still love Nikon cameras though.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Best Point and Shoot for the money
from Asheville NC
I spent hours researching and obsessing about a quality pocket camera on the internet. The Nikon S9500 had the best features, best reviews, best of everything including price. I have taken so many awesome photos with this handy camera. 22X zoom is awesome.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Nice Small Camera
Good little camera, not very user friendly however. Still not able to get the WI-Fi set up. Unsure if just my camera since was a refurbished model. Upgraded from my AW100
like the sizes and easy to use.
from Huntington Beach, CA, USA
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.
Time between Pics
I have just purchased a Coolpix S9500 and I find the time between taking a photo and the time that the camera is ready to take another, seems to be a long one. Can anyone advise on this please. I am currently using Auto mode.
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?
This is my second coolpix camera. I never had a problem with the last one. This one has frozen on me 3 times during the first month of ownership. I have had to remove the battery each time
Ordered new camera and came apparently used
from Elkton, MD, USA
The camera was already set up with someone else's pictures and settings loaded. May have been used already. Waited two months to receive as it was backordered that long. The description should be more explicit that you have to buy an additional card to wifi load pictures to a standard computer. The installed Wi-Fi only works for ipads and smart phones. Had to purchase a eye-fi card to load pictures to my computer. Other than that it takes a really good picture. I wouldn't recommend it due to the inability to receive when you want it.
Very poor battery performance
from Tulsa, OK
This camera does not come with a dock. If left unplugged, the battery drains in a couple of days. The manual says not to leave fully charged battery plugged in. I do not handle my camera everyday. It is very annoying to pick it up and it be inoperable because of discharged battery. Features are nice.
What a great little camera!
from Hudson, NH
Lot of features. If you can't afford to take along your full size SLR due to space or weight this camera will get the job done. Many features found only on bigger cameras. Great telephoto zoom lens. The zoom range is 22X optically which is much better than other cameras that pretend to have a zoom but it is nothing more than digital cropping. With a camera this small you don't have to take bad pictures with your cell phone. No reason to leave this one home. The bad on this is that the flash is pretty weak and pops up where you would naturally hold the camera...but it is still a better flash than what you have with a cell phone camera.
