Great Camera

 

Takes excellent pictures ; Touch Screen ; Easy Interface ; Very slim fits in pocket very easily

Current price, I received mine during Newegg's black friday sales and was obviously well worth it. Still worth it with current price but has a lot of competition

Very Impressive Camera

 

Impressive quality pictures. Auto focus works good. The flash is super bright. Very nice camera for such a cheap price.

Amazing picture quality. Tons of features on the camera with a nice optical zoom

When trying to transfer pics from the camera with the USB cable it seems to freeze up and I have to unplug the camera to make it continue sometimes

Awesome camera

 

I bought this cam for $119.99 with free shipping during Black Friday! This camera is awesome. It takes great indoor and outdoor pics and the video is good too. I love how it has a touch screen. Auto settings are great and so far I haven't needed to use...

Terrible auto focus!

 

I have had other Nikon Coolpix in the past and they have always been flawless. This one however is not. I was very excited to get this cam because of the 7x zoom. Well the camera almost never focuses correctly. It's like it was designed to only...

BLURRY BLURRY BLURRY!!!

 

I have taken at least 500 photos in the week that I have had this camera and I am not satisfied with even ONE single picture of my kids.....

If you enjoy taking photos of still objects, with flash, or without flash OUTSIDE where there is plenty of light, then you will love this camera. The detail is amazing AS LONG AS THE TARGET IS COMPLETELY STILL AND THERE IS ADEQUATE LIGHT

If you are a parent(like me) and want to use this camera to take photos of your kids, forget it. If they are moving even just the slightest bit, the photo comes out blurry, even WITH the flash. Wanna shoot in low light without flash? You will not be...

Awesome Camera !!!!!

 

I looked at PC Richards and Besy Buy for the same camera. Models of the same camera (S3100 and S4100) were MORE expensive than this S6100 !!

I was amazed at the number of features this camera has. I'm not a computer wiz and the manual (both on paper and on a CD) helped immensely. It probably does more than I'll ever need, but who's complaining

None that I can see
