Love the camera! So easy to get started and the pictures are great so far! The quick start guide is helpful but you really need the use's manual to get to the less obvious functions and having to dig up the pdf is not helpful. I want a book I can take with me, that I can reference when I'm out and using my camera. Otherwise, love this camera so far!

Great features - intuitive interface
Outstanding camera that yields sharp photographs. Great battery life.
Easy learning curve.
Complete kit in the box.
Came with defective SD card - could not be read.

A great product!
I've owned a few compact digital cameras and this one is, by far, the easiest to use and has given me the best, most satisfying results. It is thoughtfully engineered and the touch-screen is an especially nice feature.

fantastic, dont listen to the bad reviews.
I just got this camera as a graduation gift. I have a larger SLR but I needed a small point & shoot to carry around when I didn't want to lug the bigger one around.
This camera is just as great as my bigger Nikon Digital SLR. The pictures are almost exact. Same great features too. To the reviewees that say the flash is too bright...get sunglasses? The flash has a normal brightness. It won't blind you. Overall, I would reccommend this camera to anyone, beginners and semi-experienced photographers.

This is my third Nikon camera and my second cool pic. It is very easy to use and I love the features. I would recommend this camera

I love this camera. I only have had a problem with the lense, but mailing it into Nikon was simple.

Great camera for the price AND size. 16 megapixels provides details that are impressive.

Excellent...BEST DEAL FOR YOUR MONEY
I just bought this camera the other day and have used it a lot. A few weeks ago I spontaneously bought a Sony Cybershot camera and it was terrible so I sold it to a friend for next to nothing. I was doing my research and this camera was one of the best I could find for the price. The zoom is incredible and if you like going to concerts or like taking action shots, this camera is perfect. You can't find a camera with this much zoom and high megapixels for this price, anywhere. I didn't think I would like the touch screen, but it is phenomenal and it works like a charm. This camera is also very simple to use if you're afraid of technology. Definitely recommend this camera to anyone that loves taking pictures and good video. The video is HD and it also zooms while recording, which is fabulous.

Great features, ease of use
I just received this camera as a gift to replace an older Nikon. It has lots of great features and it is really easy to use. It is light weight and really offers more features then the other Nikon that I had.

Very nice camera for the price.
Just got back from a motorcycle trip through Alaska. Took hundreds of pictures with our new COOLPIX S6100 and couldn't be happier with the results.

Easy to use, great features for the price.
I purchased this camera to carry around on vacation instead of my D7000. It takes great photos considering it's size and price. Much easier to carry around and still be able to put it in my pocket. For those "must have" keepsakes, it's no replacement for something like the D7000, but it doesn't cost near as much either. Took over 15 minutes of video with this and it seems to be very capable for those unexpected events one wants to capture.
I would definitely recommend this camera to someone as a point-and-shoot.
First full day, I took over 200 photos and the camera displayed "battery depleted". In all fairness, a lot of those were indoors and did require a flash. The following day, I took just as many photos and never ran out of battery power. I did, however, keep the wife from constantly reviewing EVERY photo that was taken.
I didn't read the manual one bit (what guy ever does?) and was still able to operate this camera with ease. Only issue was upon initial power up, it booted in a language other than English.

I was always the one that got the "How to improve your pictures", but got this camera recently and every single picture has been a very nice photo. No more blurry photos.

Don't listen to ANYTHING negative
I am not a professional photographer, and this is not a professional camera! It is a POINT AND SHOOT. It POINTS, and SHOOTS. It is not made to catch every glimmer on a butterfly's wing, however it does take nice pictures of butterflies. I know that it is hard to decide what type of camera to buy when you are looking for a new one because for every 5 good reviews there is one AWFUL one. If you are looking for a lightweight, easy to use (minus the touch screen which takes some getting used to but is overall really cool) camera with good quality 99% of the time, this is it. I took it with me to Wyoming and except for the fact that it died half way through and we saw a wolf that day, it really didn't dissapoint me! Also, If you are looking for a case, Lowepro has VERY high quality, even tough they aren't that pretty... :)

good and simple
takes great pics, easy to use and packed with features. I considered it a good purchase
June 26, 2011
New features in this product worth upgrading
Color and clarity are enhanced in the upgrade from a two-year old camera. A+ for Nikon

I just got this camera and I am psyched!!! GREAT quality and WONDERFUL features!

Great and Simple
I found the quality of the pictures and amount of options to be far beyond a point and shot camera. The access to the different settings with a touch screen keeps it simple.

After many years of use my antique digital camera died on me, so it was past time to upgrade. After much comparison I decided on the Coolpix S6100. Very stylish and smaller than a pack of smokes, the Coolpix takes excellent pictures and has latest touchscreen technology. Much recommended.

Excellant easy to use camera
This camera has a number of improvements that takes great pictures and actually eliminates the need for a flash in most pictures. The battery life and storage features enables this camera to keep on going all day.

Dust and fiber inside lens
I love the s6100. The quality of the pictures are great and takes close-ups of our flowers. I only had the camera for a week and happened to look at the lens, it had dirt or something inside the lens. I look it back to Walmart to exchange and the second camera also had things inside the lens. We traveled to another town and another business only to find their s6100 also have dirt, lent,or something inside the lens. I am wondering if all these camera are like this. I do love the camera but think this will soon show up on the pictures. Please check into this problem and they all might need to be recalled. thanks

I'm slightly sad about the design change. Recently, my camera was broken by one of my friends. I was hoping just to buy another camera since trying to get it replaced it so time consuming and stressful. But, I have noticed the change in the camera and just disappointed about it because I was very satisfied with the original camera. It was simple, ease of use, took really great pictures and I was thoroughly impressed by it. I'm willing to accept change but just don't understand why they would try to change an already great camera. So, hopefully I can get my camera replaced and that they still have this model of camera. The new Nikon S6100- not impressed. The old Nikon S61000- loved it! I will post pictures of how amazing the original camera was.(I am only 13, but I do show a serious passion for photography)

Exceptional image quality...
A great camera camera that takes incredibly sharp shots and has a remarkably powerful zoom. Just cannot understand why its designer (s) made such a poor judgment of placing the flash where the left index finger helps to firmly hold the camera... Just DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE! Consequently, many shots are wasted as a result of our finger preventing the flash to pop up. Uhmmmm

En lo personal me encanta esta marca, tiene equipos muy fácil de usar, en lo particular la cam que tengo me super gustó, no cambiaría de marca.

acabo de comprar la cámara, y a pesar de que es una compacta de las de menos rango de la gama 6000 puedo decir que es increíble, enserio, hace macros impresionantes, es de facil uso, el asistente de panorama, si bien necesita un poco de trabajo extra, me ha regalado panoramas que no se igualan en el de barrido sin cortes o malos ajustes, la pantalla touch es medio insensible, pero aun así lo es suficiente para darle un uso muy ágil, ademas de que hace ajustes en las fotos para no perder la calidad anexare las fotografías mas ejemplificativas

Esta camara es excelente, la calidad impresionante y la nitide inmejorable, quiza el touch un poco insensible tomando en cuenta el de iPhone, fuera de eso la mejor compra que pude haber hecho y ademas a un exelente precio en Palacio de Hierro. 1000% recomendable esta camara. Anexo una prueba rapidisima que hice con los macros.

Decent for the price.
I have owned this camera for about 6 months now. Daytime and outdoor pictures are great. It takes a dump when you use it indoors in relatively low lighting. Front shutter has a protective cover that suppose to be covering the lense while the camera is not being used, it worked for about 1 week and then it gets stuck doesn't cover properly sometime not at all. Battery is decent and options are good for a Point & Shoot.

High qualiyt pics
I baught this camera for a road trip across the country. It took amazing pictures on the go and was great for quick pictures. I loved the way it adjusts to horrible backlighting, its landscape pics, and the ability to take high quality movies. I was most impressed on how great my pictures came out, (Beautiful colors and crisp images.) I did have some issues with the battery not holding a charge. Minor setback, but was able to cope by just charging more often.

Great camera, BUT the wire burned out in my camera after just two months. My husband bought me the camera for christmas and by the end of february the camera would no longer charge. I looked up the solution online as it is a common problem with this camera.

Nice and compact. Good Quality.
S6100 is light, compact and good quality camera. Its perfect for beginners who have basic photography needs and use it for occasional photo clicking. Liked it.

Great value and extremely durable!
This camera provides amazing quality photos for the price. They are great resolution and generally do well while moving. I have used this camera primarily in outdoor settings and it has served me well consistently with its great battery life and durablility. I've literally dropped it on rocks and down trails and even with a few plastic pieces missing it still works like new. My one complaint is that it generally takes poor photos in low light (flash too bright and no flash way too dark/blurry). Overall, this is a great camera for a casual photographer that wants good photos without spending a fortune.
