Wendy, Telford Keen amateur

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Optical zoom very good
Bad points:
Position of flash which automatically pops up when it's needed. It's on the left top where I hold the camera and my index finger has got in the way several times meaning I'm worried I'll cause it to get stuck! Very poor design. Had a sony cybersgot before which was brilliant. Wish I'd stuck to the same make now

Linda, Holmfirth Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent images, easy to use, starts very quickly from switch-on. As a repacement for my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ5, this is fantastic: 22x zoom in a compact camera that can sit in my pocket or bag. Good price.
Bad points:
Can't think of any bad point. Maybe whenI've had more chance to useit?

Netia, Carmarthen Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great size for carrying anywhere. Great images and video faculties. Great for amateur artists or photographers.
Bad points:
Just a few different settings to get used to which can often lead to missed opportunities when trying to take that perfect shot. I'm sure this will get better in time.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The Nikon Coolpix S9500’s slimline body conceals a wealth of cutting-edge technology that sets this 18-megapixel camera apart. Along with built-in Wi-Fi, which allows you to share images and movies instantly, the 22x NIKKOR optical super zoom lens and backlit 18-megapixel CMOS sensor capture distant action and candid close-ups with ease. Lens-shift vibration reduction enables sharp results and a steady image on the large OLED screen, making it easier to frame your shots.

Built-in Wi-Fi: transfer your high-quality images and movies directly to your smart device ready for uploading on to your favorite social media.
Super zoom: the 22x NIKKOR wide-angle optical zoom lens (25–550 mm) with ED glass will make you a sharp shooter from virtually any distance.
Back-illuminated 18-MP CMOS sensor: with each pixel receiving more light, this highly sensitive image sensor works with the EXPEED C2 processor to deliver clear shots in any light.
3-inch 614k-dot OLED screen: OLED technology means this large screen offers excellent visibility and sharp contrast in all light conditions, including direct sunlight.
Lens-shift VR (vibration reduction): Nikon’s automatic vibration reduction technology counters the effects of camera shake in real time, producing steady photos and movies.
Full HD (1080p) movie recording: easily record life in motion and in stereo sound. A dedicated video-record button makes it easy to begin filming.
Built-in Global Positioning System (GPS): record the exact location (latitude and longitude) of images as a ‘geotag’, review point-of-interest (POI) information in playback, or retrace your route via computer.
Advanced movie functions: pause and continue filming to create a single movie. Optical zoom and autofocus are available while filming, and the built-in HDMI connector provides a direct link to an HDTV.
Auto HDR mode: the camera combines two shots taken at different exposures during a single shutter release to create an image with wide dynamic range and rich colour gradation.
Smart portrait system: Smile timer takes the shot when your subject smiles, Blink proof alerts you when someone’s eyes were closed, and Glamour retouch options make portraits look more flattering.
Easy Panorama 360°/180°: pan vertically or horizontally to create dynamic panoramas.
3D shooting mode: create 3D images that can be displayed on 3D-capable TVs and computers.
Retouch menu: enhance your photos on the spot with a wide range of in-camera filter effects, including quick effect mode in playback. Selective Colour converts your image to monochrome and then adds a splash of colour to the area of your choice, while Cross Screen adds a starry effect to bright objects.
High-speed continuous shooting: capture sharp shots of the action with ease. The camera can shoot up to 5 frames at a fast 7.5 fps.
Mode dial: access the most important shooting modes quickly and easily via the conveniently placed mode dial.
19 scene modes: scene modes automatically optimize the camera settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations.
Achieve great shots just by selecting the mode that matches your situation.
Subject Tracking AF: capture sharp shots of subjects on the move. Subject Tracking AF keeps the camera focused on a selected subject even if it refuses to stay still.
Slimline body: measuring just 30.7 mm at its widest and 23 mm at its thinnest, the COOLPIX S9500 proves it’s possible to be packed with features and slim all at once.
EXPEED C2: Nikon’s fast and powerful image processing system provides high-speed operation, enhanced movie recording, high-sensitivity performance and maximum image quality.
