    Dont actually have a S9500, but guessing the green beaming light is normal, as its usaully used to help the camera autofocus, and is standard on most digital cameras.

    Suggest you switch the camera off, remove the batteries, wait a couple of mins, and then refit the batteries and switch on.

    Quote: Left from the internal flash on the camera we find an AF assist illuminator. In dimly lit conditions this feature is definitely needed to control your focus. Press the shutter halfway down to allow the AF assist illuminator to fire. A bright green light will lighten the subject and it allows the S9500 digital camera easier focusing. You will obtain the best result in wide shots; telephotos are also helped by the AF-assistance but the effective range decreases.

    just found the above from a general web search...perhaps it explains it. I have a Panasonic and it emits a red/amber light (when flash is closed)

    hope that helps Smile

    Any sort of tripod as long as it stands still. It is not a heavy camera so a medium size tripod that can at least go to your own height should be more than enough. You will need a tripod for the zoom lens as it has no Image Stabiliser.
    EDIT: I think you can turn that green light thing off - one of the menu features, but can't remember which one.

    Do be careful tho' I got a Jessops tripod which I thought would be fine, then discovered I can only use it in landscape mode - so if you were wanting to take portrait shots too - and you never know when that might happen - even if you taking landscape shots - make sure you can rotate the camera to suit - well worth it for the extra tenner or so Smile

    Cheers!

    How about a suggestion... Try www.calumetphoto.co.uk for their CK6143 tripod...20ish (!!) very solid..and allows the flip to vertical that Fran indicates..I use it..if you hanker for more 'exotic' brands like Manfrotto then keep it in the boot of the car for 'spur-of-the-moment' events..(don't think you'll need to though...seriously it's a solid piece of kit)..
