Notice for Customers in the U.S.A. and Canada
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry of Canada (IC)
Declaration of Conformity
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules and Industry Canada licence-exempt
RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device
may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference,
including interference that may cause undesired operation of this device.
FCC/IC RF Exposure Statement
This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other
antenna or transmitter.
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are
associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that
these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power wireless devices
emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being
used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue),
exposure of low-level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known
adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have not found any
biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might
occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional research.

Auto with Red-eye Reduction
This camera uses advanced red-eye reduction (“In-Camera Red-Eye Fix”).
Pre-flashes are fired repeatedly at low intensity before the main flash, reducing the red-eye effect.
If the camera detects “red-eye” when a picture is taken, Nikon’s own In-Camera Red-Eye Fix processes
the image before it is recorded.
Note the following when taking pictures:
• Because pre-flashes are fired, there is a slight lag between when the shutter-release button is
pressed and when the picture is shot.
• The time required to save the picture increases slightly.
• Advanced red-eye reduction may not produce the desired results in some situations.
• In extremely rare instances, areas not subject to red-eye may be affected by advanced red-eye
reduction processing. In these cases, choose another mode and try again.

Focusing on Subject
Using Face Detection
In the following settings, the camera uses face
detection to automatically focus on human faces.
If the camera detects more than one face, a double
border is displayed around the face that the camera
will focus on, and single borders are displayed around
the other faces.

Notes on Face Detection
• The camera’s ability to detect faces depends on a variety of factors, including whether or not the
subject is facing the camera. Additionally, the camera may be unable to detect faces in the
following situations:
- When faces are partially hidden by sunglasses or otherwise obstructed
- When faces take up too much or too little of the frame
• When the frame includes more than one face, the faces detected by the camera and the face on
which the camera focuses depend upon a variety of factors, including the direction in which the
subject is facing.
• In some rare cases, such as those described in “Autofocus” (A68), the subject may not be in focus
even though the double border turns green. If the camera does not focus, try “Focus Lock” (A68).

Viewing Pictures Taken Using Face Detection
When zooming in on an image displayed in full-frame playback mode by rotating the zoom control

Autofocus
Autofocus may not perform as expected in the following situations. In some rare
cases, the subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the focus area or focus
indicator lights in green.
• Subject is very dark
• Objects of sharply differing brightness are included in the scene (e.g. the sun
behind the subject makes that subject appear very dark)
• No contrast between the subject and surroundings (e.g. a portrait subject,
wearing a white shirt, is standing in front of a white wall)
• Several objects are at different distances from the camera (e.g., an animal inside
a cage)
• Subjects with repeating patterns (window blinds, buildings with multiple rows
of similarly shaped windows, etc.)
• Subject is moving rapidly
In these situations, try pressing the shutter-release button halfway to refocus
several times, or focus on another subject and use focus lock. When using focus
lock, be sure that the distance between the camera and the subject with which
focus was locked is the same as that for the actual subject.

Notes on GPS
B
Using GPS/Electronic Compass (COOLPIX S9500 only)
• Before using the GPS functions, read “<Important> Notes on GPS/Electronic Compass (COOLPIX
S9500 only)” (Axi).
• It takes a few minutes to obtain position information when positioning is performed for the first
time or in a situation where positioning cannot be performed for a long period of time, or just after
the battery is replaced.
• Positions of the GPS satellites change constantly.
You may not be able to determine the position or it may take some time depending on your
location and the time.
To use the GPS feature, use the camera in an open-air area with few obstacles in the sky.
Signal receiving will be smoother if the GPS antenna (A1) is facing the sky.
• The following locations which block or reflect signals may result in failed or inaccurate positioning.
- Inside buildings or underground locations
- Between high-rise buildings
- Under overpasses
- Inside tunnels
- Near high-voltage electrical power lines
- Between clusters of trees
• Using a mobile phone of 1.5 GHz band near this camera may disrupt positioning.
• When carrying this camera around while positioning, do not place it in a metal bag.
Positioning cannot be performed if the camera is covered with metal materials.
• When there is a significant difference in the signals from the GPS satellites, there could be a
deviation of up to several hundred meters.
• Be aware of your surroundings when positioning.
• The shooting date and time that is displayed when playing back images is determined by the
camera’s internal clock at the time of shooting.
The time obtained by the position information and recorded on images will not be displayed on
the camera.
• Position information for the first frame will be recorded on a series of pictures shot using
continuous shooting.
Battery Drain While Recording GPS Data
• When Record GPS data is set to On, GPS functions will continue to operate at the specified
interval for approximately 6 hours even after the camera is turned off. Also, GPS functions will
continue to operate while recording log data (A92) even after the camera is turned off.
• When Record GPS data is set to On, battery power drains faster than usual. Confirm the battery
level especially when the camera is recording log data.

The color of light reflected from an object varies with the color of the light source.
The human brain is able to adapt to changes in the color of the light source, with
the result that white objects appear white whether seen in the shade, direct
sunlight, or under incandescent lighting. Digital cameras can mimic this
adjustment of the human eye by processing images according to the color of the
light source. This is known as “white balance.”
Although the default setting, Auto, can be used under most types of lighting, you
can apply the white balance setting suited to a particular light source to achieve
more accurate results.

Description
The camera uses a wide area of the screen for metering.
This metering mode provides the appropriate exposure for a

The camera meters the entire frame but assigns greatest weight
to the subject at the center of the frame. The classic metering
for portraits; it preserves background details while letting
lighting conditions at the center of the frame determine
exposure. Can be used with focus lock (A68) to meter offcenter subjects.
Notes on Metering
• When the digital zoom is in effect, Metering is set to Center-weighted or spot metering (where

Notes on Vibration Reduction
• Immediately after the power is turned on or the camera enters shooting mode from playback
mode, wait until the monitor screen stabilizes before shooting.
• Due to characteristics of the vibration reduction function, images displayed on the camera’s
monitor immediately after shooting may appear blurry.
• Vibration reduction may be unable to completely eliminate the effects of camera shake in some
situations.
• When the camera shake is extremely high or low, picture compensation with electronic VR may not
be possible even when On (hybrid) is set.
• When the shutter speed is fast or extremely slow, electronic VR may not operate even when On
(hybrid) is set.
• When electronic VR in On (hybrid) operates, saving the picture takes longer than normal, because
when the picture is shot, the shutter is released twice automatically to perform picture
compensation. Shutter sound (E77) is heard only once. One frame is recorded.

displays may contain pixels that are always lit (white, red, blue, or green) or always off (black), this is
not a malfunction and has no effect on images recorded with the device.
• Due to the general characteristics of OLED monitors, prolonged or repeated display of the same
screen or image may result in screen burn. Screen burn can be recognized by decreased
brightness in portions of the monitor or mottled display. In some cases, screen burn may become
permanent. However, images are in no way affected by screen burn.
To prevent screen burn, do not set monitor brightness higher than necessary and do not display
the same screen or image for an extended period of time.
• Images on the monitor may be difficult to see under bright lighting.
• The monitor is lit by an LED backlight. Should the monitor begin to dim or flicker, contact your
Nikon-authorized service representative.
The Battery
F3
Technical Notes and Index
• Be sure to read and follow the warnings of “For Your Safety” (Avi to viii)
thoroughly before using the battery.
• Check the battery level before using the camera and replace or charge the
battery if necessary. Do not continue charging once the battery is fully charged
as this will result in reduced battery performance. Whenever possible, carry a
fully charged spare battery when taking pictures on important occasions.
• Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 40°C
(104°F).
• Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5°C to 35°C (41°F to
95°F) before use.
• When the battery temperature is between 0°C and 10°C (32°F to 50°F) or 45°C to
60°C (113°F to 140°F), the chargeable capacity may decrease.
• The battery is not charged at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above
60°C (140°F).
• Note that the battery may become hot during use; wait for the battery to cool
before charging. Failure to observe these precautions could damage the
battery, impair its performance, or prevent it from charging normally.
• On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. Be sure that the
battery is fully charged before heading outside to take pictures in cold weather.
Keep spare batteries in a warm place and exchange as necessary. Once warmed,
a cold battery may recover some of its charge.
• Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning. Should
the battery terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry cloth before
use.
Caring for the Products
• If the battery will not be used for some time, insert it in the camera and run it flat
before removing it for storage. The battery should be stored in a cool location
with an ambient temperature of 15°C to 25°C (59°F to 77°F). Do not store the
battery in hot or extremely cold locations.
• Always remove the battery from the camera or battery charger when it is not
being used. When inserted, minute amounts of current are drawn from the
battery even when not in use. This may result in excessive draining of the
battery and complete loss of function. Turning the camera on or off while the
battery is exhausted can result in reduced battery life. When the battery level is
low, be sure to charge the battery before using it.
• Recharge the battery at least once every six months and completely exhaust it
before returning it to storage.
• After removing the battery from the camera or battery charger, attach the
included terminal cover to the battery and store it in a cool place.
• A marked drop in the time a fully-charged battery retains its charge, when used
at room temperature, indicates that the battery needs to be replaced. Purchase
a new EN-EL12 battery.
• Replace the battery when it no longer holds a charge. Used batteries are a
valuable resource. Please recycle used batteries in accordance with local
regulations.
Charging AC Adapter
Technical Notes and Index
• Be sure to read and follow the warnings of “For Your Safety” (Avi to viii)
thoroughly before using the Charging AC Adapter.
• The Charging AC Adapter EH-70P is for use only with compatible devices. Do
not use with another make or model of device.
• The EH-70P is compatible with AC 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz electrical outlets. When
using in other countries, use a plug adapter (commercially available) as
necessary. For more information about plug adapters, consult your travel
agency.
• Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter
other than the Charging AC Adapter EH-70P or USB-AC adapter. Failure to
observe this precaution could result in overheating or in damage to the camera.
F4
Caring for the Products
The Memory Cards
• Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards” (A17).
• Be sure to observe the precautions in the memory card documentation when
you use the memory card.
• Do not affix labels or stickers to the memory card.
• Do not format the memory card using a computer.
• When a memory card that has been used in another device is used for the first
time, be sure to format it with this camera.
When a new memory card is used, it is recommended to format it with this
camera first.
• Formatting permanently deletes all data in the memory card. Be sure to transfer
important pictures to a computer before formatting.
• If the error message “Card is not formatted. Format card?” is displayed when you
insert a memory card into this camera, the memory card must be formatted. If
the memory card contains images you wish to keep, select No and save those
images on your computer before formatting the memory card. To format the
card, select Yes and press the k button.
• Do not perform the following during formatting, while data is being written to
or deleted from the memory card, or during data transfer to a computer.
Failure to observe this precaution could result in loss of data or damage to the
memory card:
- Open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover to remove the battery or
memory card.
- Turn off the camera
- Disconnect the AC adapter

Caring for the Camera
Cleaning
Lens
Avoid touching glass parts with your fingers. Remove dust or lint with a blower
(typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one end that is
pumped to produce a stream of air out the other end). To remove fingerprints,
oily substances, or other stains that cannot be removed with a blower, carefully
wipe the lens with a dry soft cloth or eyewear cleaning cloth, using a spiral
motion that starts at the center of the lens and working toward the edges. Do
not wipe the lens forcibly or with a hard material. Failure to observe this
precaution could result in damage or trouble. If this fails, clean the lens using a
cloth lightly dampened with commercial lens cleaner.
Monitor
Remove dust or lint with a blower. To remove fingerprints, oily substances or
other stains, carefully wipe the monitor with a dry soft cloth or eyewear
cleaning cloth. Do not wipe the monitor forcibly or with a hard material. Failure
to observe this precaution could result in damage or trouble.
Body
Use a blower to remove dust, dirt, or sand, then wipe gently with a soft, dry
cloth. After using the camera at the beach or other sandy or dusty
environment, wipe off any sand, dust, or salt with a dry cloth lightly dampened
with fresh water and dry thoroughly. Note that foreign matter inside the
camera could cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Do not use volatile organic solvents such as alcohol or thinner, chemical
detergents, anticorrosive agents, or anti-fogging agents.
Storage
Technical Notes and Index
Remove the battery if the camera will not be used for an extended period. Do not
store the camera with naphtha or camphor moth balls, or in any of the following
locations:
• Next to equipment that produces strong electromagnetic fields, such as
televisions or radios
• Exposed to temperatures below –10°C (14°F) or above 50°C (122°F)
• Places that are poorly ventilated or subject to humidity of over 60%
To prevent mold or mildew, take the camera out of storage at least once a month.
