In order to successfully use the Easy Panorama mode you must move the camera very steadily and slowly. When the camera movement speed is too fast, there is a large amount of camera shake or there is little change in subject such as a wall or in the dark, the shooting ends in an error. Please see pages 2 and 3 of the Reference section of the COOLPIX S9500 manual for more information.
If you have enabled the GPS feature of the S9500 and data is not being recorded, there could be interference that is preventing the camera from receiving position information. Please see page 89 of the S9500 of the manual for more information. Also please see page 59 of the Reference section of the manual for information on updating the camera's A-GPS file.
