Question

Can connect new S9500 to iPad via wifi and view photos, but can't transfer them?

I am able to connect the s9500 to my iPad via wifi, but when I select a photo and attempt to transfer (download) it to the iPad via wifi, the transfer appears to begin (see graphic) but then stops, hangs, and never finishes. I'm apparently very close to success. What step or setting do I need to change?

PS - I am using a 32gb Class 10 Transcend SD card. I tried a SanDisk card, but with the same results.

Suggestions?

Hi Chelsea, thanks for your input. If you look at the graphic, I think you could see that I have no problem connecting the camera to the iPad (or viewing the photos). What I can't get it to do is successfully transfer the files from the camera to the iPad. The software and wifi connection seems to be working fine. I tried an approved card in my camera, no difference. I tried my card in a different camera, and it worked great. The evidence points (in my opinion) to some sort of fault in sending with the S9500. ???

Please make sure that when connecting the COOLPIX S9500 and performing a transfer there is an approved memory card, a full battery on the camera as well as the iOS/Android smart device. Select the COOLPIX S9500 network in the network settings of the smart device. Once the network is selected and the connection is made, try to transfer the images.

No, The S800c is the only Coolpix camera capable of joining your home wireless network, and accessing the internet: It runs android. The Wifi on the S9500 is only for connecting to smart devices wirelessly., and transferring pictures to them.

Don't make the mistake that every compact digital camera owner makes, turn the flash off. The little flash is only good for 10-15 feet, regardless of the zoom factor of the camera.

With the flash forced off, the camera will automatically turn the ISO up so you have a chance to get a concert shot. Remember to be as still as possible.

Even better, after forcing the flash to the off position, set the ISO manually. Try 400 at the concert, check the pics for blur. If they are fine, leave it there. If there's a slight softness/blur, try 800, and repeat.

Use the lowest ISO that freezes the action because noise gets bad at 800 and beyond with compact cameras.

And finally, practice at home before you go. Try taking indoor shots without the flash, learn how to turn the flash off and change the ISO manually, learn it by heart so you aren't lost at the show.

The S9500 built in WIIFI cannot be use to assist the GPS with determining location. The purpose of the WI-FI is to enable the camera to transfer pictures to a Smart device wireless.

Question

How to disable the power-off GPS log warning?

When I turn off the camera while a GPS log is being recorded, the S9500 camera displays a warning and then freezes up for 10 seconds before turning off. This is an unnecessary annoyance since I have to wait for the lens to retract before putting it away. Is there any way to disable this warning or, at least, to dismiss it earlier so the camera shuts down when I want it to?
