Nikon Coolpix S9000
So fare everything is working well. The main reason for this camers is for the GPS which is working well which connectstyo ipad and map on Lightroom. I cary this when my D7000 with GPS is too bulky to carry.

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.
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
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.
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
An alternateive when I don't want to lug my DSLR and extra lenses
I wanted a camera that was easy to take on a trip and carry with me at all times, but that could take clear pictures including from a distance. I took this camera to Africa where I took a number of photos at a conference I attended and on safari. It is easy to use (for basic features at least), takes great photos, and has the best zoom lens for a camera this small. My only complaints are that it is a little bit slow if you want to take multiple photos in a short time, and the panoramic photo feature isn't very accessible.
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.
I have not had serious use of the camera yet as I bought it to go on my trip in just a few days. I like the optical zoom on it. Its lightweight, eay to use, but I did not like the pop up flash as that is the same area, I put my finer on to help hold and stabilize the camera. I like the camera overall, great for light versus by DSLR. I liked the wifi and GPS feature along with the IOS app for seeing or downloading photos on to the phone or iPad.
