COOLPIX S6100 3.8 5 122 122
Great camera I purchased this camera to have one smaller than the full sized one I have. It fits in my shirt pocket and takes great pictures. It is so easy to use that I have not even had to use the instructions. And I donot have to buy a camcorder. This thing takes better video than my old camcorder and is easier to use. I see that many people have had out of focus pictures? Most all digital cameras you need to be still when taking pictures. I purchased mine online and got a bunch or extras for a great price. Great job Nikon! February 5, 2012
awesome!!!! I just got it this is my first Nikon i turned the lights off and took a photo and it was so clear like it was noon outside.... I'm loving it!!!! January 19, 2012
FABULOUS CAMERA! I got my Nikon for Christmas. I'd been begging for one for years. I got a Nikon 4 years ago [it was the cheapest one they had] and it took wonderful pictures, but the lens got messed up a week after I got it. I was so excited when I got this one, and have not been disappointed. It's taken some really amazing pictures so far, and the videos are of excellent quality. I would HIGHLY recommend this camera to ANYONE. January 19, 2012
Great Camera I have had the camera for about a year now and it is great. The only thing that isn't so good is the nighttime pictures. When you try to take nighttime pictures there is a lot of noise. I also tried to take the camera skiing and it froze and fogged up but the pictures still looked pretty good. I recently dropped the camera and the lens broke and it would not work so i hit it and it started working again. Now the camera focuses pretty slow. I will add more pictures in another comment... January 14, 2012
Great Pont and Shoot I have had it about 7 months and i love it. it has great quality pictures and zoom. December 31, 2011
5 Cameras...This is the most used one!!! I have several $300.00 to $500.00 dollar cameras and I grab this one every time now. Bought the S6100 about a year ago. I have taken many hundreds of pictures with it. Use AUTO mode quite a bit but sometimes use menu to select ICON for the type of pictures I am going to take. Decent ZOOM for the price in a small inexpensive camera. Also bought a Sandisk EXTREME 8gb at 30mb/per second card for the camera, kind of expensive Sandisk card(49 bucks) but it seems to work great. Was recommended to buy this disk by a Camera geek friend. Dont know for sure if that is what makes the difference but I LOVE this camera. Excellent pictures, really GOOD movie mode also, easy to take ANYWHERE camera! December 22, 2011
it is cool its fit for simple use for house wife's just click.... good picture quality...... December 11, 2011
Works like a charm and makes you feel like a pro This camera is one of the best in a long line of cameras that I have purchased and used,It is simple to use takes great pictures,and is very easy to review the pictures that you have already taken. I own over 10 cameras and this one is the best to travel with take pictures of any kind with. December 6, 2011
Great pictures for size Takes great pictures and movies despite it's size. While it's not the smallest on the market, it's perfect pocket/purse size. I must however write that I had this camera for only 5 months and it's already been sent to Nikon for major parts repair. Customer service was excellent and I hope to enjoy my camera again soon. December 5, 2011
More than expected This camera does what I need and is more than I expected for what it cost. A great upgrade from my Canon Powershot that broke. Quick shipping too. I received this item in two days even though I ordered on Cyber Monday. December 5, 2011
Everything was as advertsed until I received it in the mail and unwrapped it.Then I had to go buy a memory card before I could try it out Long story shortI still haven't bought a card so how canI send you a review?I think Nikon Is probably .a good product but to cheap to furnish a memory card ann case.. December 5, 2011
Great! I'd recommed to anyone! I LOVE this camera! The colors are vibrant and amazing, with some coming out even better than they are in reality. It has great filter effects, including: *Selective Color *FishEye *Miniature *Cross Screen (as well as black & white, sepia, and more.) The best of the effects has to be the glamour retouch. It makes your face look fantastic! It takes awesome pictures from afar. I'd recommend this camera to anyone who wants great quality photos, and likes to play around with how they look. November 17, 2011
Love my CoolPix I have owned my CoolPix for six months now. I don't leave home without it, and have gotten great shots because of this. Night time, daytime, sunny or rainy days it all comes out great!! It is a "dummy proof" camera and adjusts much better and quicker than my own eyes can work!! Highly recommend for anyone, any age!!! :) November 14, 2011
much improved version This is a much improved over my previous coolpix. The battery indicator works great. The picture quality is excellent. November 11, 2011
Great Camera I am a novice but I really am enjoying this camera. It does so much for you. I would recommend this to anyone. November 8, 2011
Great camera. Not a toy! I've owned Nikon film cameras since I bought my first F model in 1967 while I was stationed in Viet Nam. Over the years and through many models I've always been impressed with the quality of every Nikon product. Now that I've bought my first Nikon digital camera, I'm pleased to see that quality of your film cameras has been successfully integrated into the Coolpix S6100. I look forward to many years of first class service from this camera. November 7, 2011
I love the camera but there is a sopt on the screen that show up on my pictures October 25, 2011
love how easy to used very nice crisp pictures who knew fom connon camera to a nikon and I love it October 24, 2011
Excellent camera for its price. I am not an experienced photographer but want to be able to get good macros of jewelry that I make, plants, birds, printed material - whatever. I also need to be able to take the usual outdoors pictures of my pets and landscapes. This camera does it all and does it very well. Photo resolution and color rendition is excellent. There are numerous settings to get just the picture you want, including streaming video. The touch screen allows easy access to menus and scrolling of images stored on the camera. Transfer to my computer is a snap with the included software and cables. I would highly recommend this camera model to anyone. October 24, 2011
Actually a great camera Take time to surf through the different settings and modes. I hate to read directions (didn't read for this camera). After I got the camera set up and found out things I missed-it worked great. Persons with problems, bad pictures, or other issues may not have the camera set for their needs. I just got back from a 9 day back country trip, and the pictures were fantastic! 7X zoom is about as much as you can hold steady. The digital zoom did work quite well when I held the camera on a tree for extra support. Once I got used to the touch screen-It works great. I can work it just like my Droid. I had no problems scrolling through the pictures. I am sure I will find more features if I play with my S6100 or read the directions?? September 2, 2011
Great so far The camera is great I love it! It is easy to use it takes great photos! You can touch the screen and see the picturesyou justtook and see them clearly. The video camera is fast and easy to use! August 29, 2011
Great features and pictures! Awesome camera overall! Takes great pictures! Easy to use and Great features! August 28, 2011
Lots of Camera for the Money This is my 3rd and best CoolPix camera. It is easy to use and produces fantastic results for casual photography. The 7x zoom is also perfect. Indoor low-light shots also come out nice without the flash (best with a mini-tripod). My S6100 worked for a couple of weeks and then the battery charger failed. Nikon made it easy to return it for warranty repair. I suspect my failure is not typical based on my experience with Nikon. August 23, 2011
GREAT LITTLE CAMERA I am having fun getting acquainted with my new camera.... NIKON coolpix s6100. It is taking me a while to figure out all the possible settings and the touch screen, and when to use the various settings. The color is great, and the 7X ZOOM IS TERRIFIC, AND STILL REMAINS FOCUSED when I use it. I am not able to use the editing features, however,the VIEW NX 2. August 22, 2011
this camera is a cut above the "point and shoot" I previously owned a s3000 which is a fine camera in its own right but the 6000 has some extra features which makes a really great camera especially compared to the ubiquitious point and shoot forerunners. August 22, 2011
I really like this camera, the zoom and focus are incredible. August 15, 2011
Ease of use As a hiker I found this camera very easy to use on the trail. I could remove it from a pocket with one hand, power up, adjust zoom and snap a great view with only one hand. I took over a hundred photos with my backpack on and a treking pole in one hand on my way up Mt. Whitney early this summer. This is a great camera outdoorsman and novice photographer. August 9, 2011
Love this camera i love this camera the picture quality is amazing and it's a fun camera to use August 8, 2011
Great camera Since i bought the camera two weeks ago i have nothing but good things to say about it, i have been using for real estate mostly to take pictures of apts and houses, so far the camera performs great in low light condition. I am very happy and satisfied with it. August 8, 2011
Great Pictures! I love quality of pictures. the only bad thing is that my first one had a loose tv cable and would not stay in. I exchanged that one and this one works great! July 30, 2011

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: 
You didn't mention where you bought the camera. I got mine at a garage sale. I was having trouble with it focusing when I got it. I noticed the lens had fingerprints and a smear in it. I used compressed air (at a distance) and cleaned the lens and it has been focusing and had sharp shots since then.

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.

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 .

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.
