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...

Feature-packed and stylish, but image quality is nothing special

Nikon Coolpix S9500 makes nice 22x zoom travel companion

 

With its long lens, compact size, and built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, the Nikon Coolpix S9500 is a very good point-and-shoot travel companion for pictures of birds and buildings.

The well-priced ; 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 from the camera to...

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.

Nikon COOLPIX S9500 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S9500 is available in black, red, silver (tested here) and a brown colour. Its price tag is about right looking at competitors, but for that price you'd be forgiven for expecting few more manual shooting options

Nikon Coolpix S9500 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpx S9500 is a Wi-Fi enabled camera which also has a 22x optical zoom lens, GPS and electronic compass. All of these features suggest it will make an ideal travel camera, particularly as it is small enough to carry in your pocket. It is...

Built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, Lots of zoom in a pocketable body, Decent image quality, Good value for money, Full 1080p HD video recording, 7.5 fps continuous shooting

Battery life rating is low, Images are soft in the corners, 360° panoramas don't always work

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 review

 

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 ( 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...
