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: 
There are some features on the S6100 that will prevent you from using digital zoom but these should not cause the camera to behave as you describe. Sometimes electronically controlled cameras can be 'reset' by turning the camera off, removing and replacing the battery, then turning the camera on again. Please make sure that you are using a fully charged Nikon battery and that the memory card that you are using is on the approved card list for the S6100. You can find the memory card list here:

Unfortunately, the coolpix S6100 was not built for tether shooting or to be use as a webcam. Camera control pro can only be use with certain DSLR Cameras.

Answer: 
You can enhance your pictures brightness and contrast using the camera retouch menu or you can dowload Nikon free basic edition software called View NX 2.

How to set timer to remain functional until turned off?

Am trying to take several pictures - of different objects - in succession, using the timer and tripod to eliminate the possibility of interruption by my unintended movement. How may I invoke, for example, the 2-second timer for the entire "run" of pictures, rather than on a per-image basis (frustrating and time-consuming)?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
