COOLPIX S6100 3.8 5 122 122
the perfect camera for me. small point and shoot great for the last second pics. September 23, 2012
Great Buy! I spent thousands on the D7000 all the goodies and love it...Today my wife wanted a beginner camera to take away for a business trip...(.Keep in mind I buy the cheap skillet, because I know she will ruin it..)..I found for her the Coolpix S6100 for $136 bucks (AU) We brought it home and I was totally shocked! This camera has almost everything that my camera has and is so easy to use...the touch screen and the light weight is a bonus...I know I'm the better photographer in the family, and I pay the bills with my skills. But shes right there behind me! Cheers April 22, 2012
----> Nice camera I have a Nikon P50 (8.1 megapixel) which takes good pictures. After 2 years with it, wanted to buy something better & bought Nikon S6100. I take pictures once in a while & last week went to Mèxico city, of course it was the perfect time to test the camera. *PROS -16 MEGAPIXEL: photos looks great in all light conditions -Touch screen(lcd) with stylus: very easy to use. Nice feature, you take pics. with one touch -Lots of options: Retouch, paint, motion detection, vibration & wind noise reduction,etc. -HDMI port & small size -Price: US$183.- (Mèxico) -Li-ion battery & USB(charger): No more batteries!! CONS: -Only 720p video: Well, it does the job for me. 720p is HD & looks very good. Can`t complain. It`s a camera, not a video-camera. For "more money" you get the S6200 (Full HD) with stereo sound -Lens(x7): For me it`s perfect, but, once again, if you want more , get the S6200(x10) I`m happy & will buy Nikon in the future without a doubt ! We all know that Nikon (along with "C---N") is one of the best camera brand in the world. Others ? A joke! March 14, 2012
Great camera for a great price I bought this camera at Best Buy in a bundle that included an extra rechargeable battery, a hard camera case, and a 4 gigabyte memory card for 149.99. I bought this to use just as a fun camera to carry around and take normal pics of my friends and family etc. as I already own a very nice camera from another manufacturer. I use this camera for almost everything! It has lots of cool features, is very compact, and takes great pics. Between this camera and some adobe software I'm taking absolutely amazing, magazine quality pictures. Nothing bad to say about this camera. March 3, 2012
Perfect for what I wanted~ I bought this camera to take to a convention where I knew there would be terrible light and where I knew that there would be ALOT of pictures to take (anime conventions are like that), so I knew I would need a high ISO level. This camera was on sale and so I thought I would buy it. When I came home I played with it A TONNE! and I was so happy with what I was seeing, in the bad lighting of my home sweet home I got perfect pictures! It takes portraits gorgeously and it takes STUNNING close up still-lives (I took some pictures of some flowers I got for valentines day and they are amazing!). I have been bragging about this camera to EVERY one I know! February 15, 2012

Answer: 
To focus your shot press the shutter release button halfway down - the camera will autofocus and determine exposure when you do this. Then press the shutter release button all the way down to take your picture. If you wish to refocus or reframe your shot, remove your finger from the shutter release and then press it halfway down again. If you need further assistance please contact Nikon Support: http://support.NikonUSA.com .

I bought this camera 2 weeks ago. So far the images are saturated and not clear. The camera seems to have problems focusing on the subject. I adjusted the settings, turned the camera on and off yet my 3 mega pixel fuji seems to blow the image quality away. Any suggestions before I return this camera?

Answer: 
It isextremely annoying when this happens. But your best option is to hold the button down half way and just wait. It takes 5-10 long seconds but it eventually gets it.

When I ordered it online, the website stated it was in stock. With other authorized dealers, they didn't have them in stock so the delivery time was listed at 3-4 weeks. When ordering directly from NikonUSA website and selecting 2nd day air for delivery, will I recieve it within 1 week?

Answer: 
The most time it should take is a week. Even less time then that. I got my camera for Christmas, (which is the busiest time of the year) and got the camera within 3-4 days. Not that long of a wait at all. And if you're willing to pay extra, I'm pretty sure you can get it within 2 days.

Answer: 
Mine did the same thing. Apparently, according to a service bulletin, you need to press the "on" button after plugging it in. However in my case this did not solve the problem and I had to send it back for repair.

Answer: 
Please verify that that you have the correct option selected for the Charge by computer, MENU > SETUP MENU > Charge by Computer. Also, try it with a backup battery. If the problem persists you will need to send the camera and the charger to be evaluated.
