The S9500 has an astonishingly versatile range for such a pocketable camera, thanks to a 22x zoom lens which covers anything from once-in-a-lifetime safari shots to close-ups of your favourite band. It even lets you use your smart device as a remote control for the camera, which comes in handy for self-portraits.
“Both the S9500 and the S5200 connected models make sharing easy, with instant uploading to a compatible smart device available via Wi-Fi. With features such as long optical zoom and high quality sensors, we’re confident that customers can enjoy the combination of stunning image quality and convenience of sharing special moments with this connected camera.”
The S9500 – Get close up images worth uploading
The ability to quickly go from wide angle to ultra-telephoto is something that has to be experienced to be appreciated, and the COOLPIX S9500 with a NIKKOR 22x optical zoom lens and ED glass will not fail to amaze. Its incredibly versatile focal range of 25–550 mm has a high fun factor, capturing both distant action and candid close-ups with ease.
The back-illuminated 18-megapixel CMOS image sensor and lens-shift vibration reduction means that even at the most energetic of events, whether a big sports game or a stadium concert, the COOLPIX S9500 gets pin-sharp images and movie clips. Providing a live view of the scene before you, a bright and high contrast 7.5-cm (3.0-in.) OLED screen makes it easy to frame your shot.
Once you have captured the memory just as you experienced it, you can instantly share it with friends and family, as the S9500 can transfer your high-quality images and movies directly to your smart device* ready for uploading to your favourite social media sites.
Want to share even more of the moment? The COOLPIX S9500 includes Full HD (1080p) movie recording at the touch of a button and can even film separate scenes as one seamless movie. What’s more, built-in GPS allows you to ‘geotag’ photos at any time, or retrace your route via a computer, whilst an electronic compass tells you in exactly which direction the camera is pointing.
The COOLPIX S9500 comes in four colours: silver, black, red and brown.
The RRP is £299.99 / €359 and is released 21st February 2013

The high-resolution, 7.5 cm (3.0-in.) LCD screen offers sharp contrast and clear viewing, while the 16-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers outstanding images in low light. The NIKKOR 6x optical zoom makes group shots or close-ups easy and lens-shift vibration reduction compensates for camera shake in real time, producing crisp photos and movies in any situation. When the moment warrants filming, the S5200 can switch to Full HD video recording instantly at the touch of a dedicated button.
