Nikon Coolpix S9500 – Pocket Point-And-Shoot With 22x Zoom & Wi-Fi

Featured News Nikon Point and Shoot

Nikon has updated their pocket superzoom camera line with the new 18-megapixel Coolpix S9500. The Nikon Coolpix S9500 sports a 22x 25-550mm f/3.4-6.3 zoom lens (35mm equivalent), full HD video, GPS and built-in Wi-Fi. If you’re only going to own one camera, my advice would be to make it a pocket superzoom. They’re my favorite point-and-shoots because you can carry so much camera in a pants pocket. The S9500’s 25-550mm zoom lens has more range than you’ll find in most professional photographers’ huge camera bags. Combine the built-in Wi-Fi, your Smart Phone and Nikon’s mobile app and you can wirelessly transfer photos and videos from the camera to your phone and share them on Facebook no matter where you are!

In my experience, Nikon pocket superzoom image quality is about as good as it gets. The only thing the S9500 doesn’t have is manual exposure controls. So if you’re a pure point-and-shoot photographer that wants a powerful pocket-sized camera so you can take great photos and videos and share them immediately, the S9500 is a pretty sure bet. The S9500 will also make a great vacation camera for travelers who want to keep their luggage light and simple. And the built-in GPS will tag all your photos with location data so you can search, browse or share them by city, landmark, country, etc.

The Nikon Coolpix S9500 pocket superzoom camera will be available in February (2013) in red, silver and black for US $349.95.
