Coolpix S6100

 

What the Coolpix S6100 lacks in fun features, it makes up for with pristine image quality. We were highly impressed with the images this 16MP camera can take. This compact digital camera is high quality, low maintenance and well worth your money.

Nikon's Coolpix S6100 has some of the best photography settings and takes great photos

The touchscreen is difficult to manage. The user nearly always inadvertently bumps the screen and messes up the settings

The Coolpix S6100 is high quality, low maintenance and well worth your money.

I love these cameras, their picture quality is great!

 

Best Camera I've ever owned!

Many features and easy to use, takes professional looking pics

The touch screen is a little hard to use but the Stylus that came with it helps

Amazing camera for the price! Takes perfect pictures!

 

I have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about this camera! I was looking for a camera under $200 that took really nice pictures and was immediately impressed with this one. My last digital camera was really hard to use since I had to...

Takes clear, crisp pictures, easy to use, great touchscreen, lots of cool features, feels solid, has great design, has amazing zoom capability, really nice video mode for compact camera

None that I can think of

First impression not good..

 

This is why i always buy from reputable dealer. One call..ebay. Took back no questions and sent out new one. Nikon has always been my camera of chioce and will continue to be

bought brand new and are sending a new one after terrible beginning. The two pictures that did turn out looked beautiful. I will update after i receive new one

Did not work straight out of the box everything was double exposed...thats always my luck

Great little compact with big camera power

 

This is the second Coolpix I have had and the first one (S570) still impresses me. This one I'm sure will do the same. I can't believe how far compact cameras have come and this one is a showboat. Good job Nikon.

Small, smart, shoots HD video, 16Meg, nice size glass

Flash but that's just being picky, it is a compact. The touch screen is a little hard to operate but I shouldn't expect it be react like my phone

Disappointing purchase.

 

Decent pictures

not reliable.Broke down after 3 months of sporadic use (lens wouldn't open ).Warranty denied due to internal rust most likely as a result of moisture condensation.The camera was never exposed to abnormal conditions.There are posts on the web that describe

Consumer review by:

Sleek, comparable model that is stylish and refreshing

 

A sleek camera with a sexy feeling of freedom attached is the Nikon Coolpix s6100. A versatile design that fits in any pocket and mostly any case is housed in a 2.5" x 4" design with a 3" LCD display screen that screams quality image. The video is...

Two and a half by four inch design that screams with the versatility of freedom. A pick up and shoot camera that never gets too big for itself. Nikon makes a breeze out of picking and choosing your moments of glory. The full immersion touch screen glides

A major con in my opinion is the zoom capacity of only three times. For those who want detailed shots off in the distance this camera is definitively not your type. It once again is comparable to other cameras in it's class which mostly all have the same
