Nikon Coolpix S6300 (Silver)


When the Nikon Coolpix S6300's predecessor, the S6200 , came out, it was one of the smallest, least expensive 10x zoom cameras available. It was a good camera for what it was, but not exceptional.

The Nikon Coolpix S6300 is a small, lightweight pocket camera with a ultrawide-angle 10x zoom lens that's easy to pick up and use and has a nice assortment of snapshot shooting options.

Though its overall shooting performance is good for its class, the autofocus is temperamental. Battery life is fairly short.

In the face of stiff competition, the Nikon Coolpix S6300 is an above average point-and-shoot made slightly better by a low price, simple operation, and nice features.

I keep the camera in my pocket so I can grab the decisive moment shot. The photos are clear. The zoom is not blurry. I would really like a view finder for taking photos in the very bright light but so far, if I point the camera in the right direction I...
