COOLPIX S6200 3.9 5 76 76
if you get it on sale = great value we previously owned two canons and were set on getting a third but the $125 sale price was too low to pass up. it has a lot of options that aren't terribly hard to find in the camera's OS once you get used to it. the pics are great looking, it doesn't weigh much, and the battery life is good. we bought a red one (only color in stock) and almost a year later none of the red has rubbed off. pretty well made little camera! September 20, 2012
Excellent Investment My first Nikon camera and I absolutely love it! It is well worth the investment for those priceless photos. I have had it for several months now and am highly impressed with the quality of the pictures and ease of use. I received excellent feedback when I sent my first set of pictures via email such as what kind of camera do I have and highly impressed with the beauty of the pictures. I took photographs of new plants and every detail was caputred of its unique beauty as if the viewers were seeing it person. I'm still learning more features about this camera and the more I learn the higher my impression. I highly recommend this camera. September 5, 2012
A Lot Of Camera In A Small Package The blue Coolpix.S6200 that I purchased for my birthday has been a real pleasure. I am used to a Nikon SLR film camera with a long telephoto-macro lense, but this little camera has really surprised me with its sensitivity and versatility. I use it for natural light and close-up shots and in a croud, I can elevate it to take almost any kind of subjects. Thank you, NIKON August 24, 2012
VERY NICE SIZED CAMERA, LOTS OF FEATURES I REALLY LOVE MY NEW CAMERA, IT TAKES BEAUTIFUL PICS AND I LOVE ALL OF THE FEATURES AND THE EASE OF USING IT, TOTALLY THE BEST CAMERA I HAVE EVER HAD August 19, 2012
I love this camera I bought this camera from Best Buys and I got it on sale for 129.99 it was a really great buy I really like the camera it takes very nice pics this in my first Nikon and I think it is a really nice camera and it was really nice for the price. It dose all that I expected and much more I use it for my work and I needed a camera that takes nice pics and can have the date and time both stamped on the pic And this dose it all.and it very compact to carry in your pocket.

Answer: 
This happened to us as well. We contacted Costco (where it was purchased) who offers free extended service plans of the products they sell. They walked me through a fix, which worked for us.

1. Hold power button for 60 seconds.
2. Done.

Apparently, it resets the internal computer.

Answer: 
Make sure you are using the wall charger that came with it. It needs more power than an average charger like a iPhone or other USB standard charger.

Answer: 
Disconnect the USB cable or unplug the Charging AC adapter and correctly connect it again, or try a back up battery. Also, connect the USB to another computer in order to charge the battery. If the problem persists you will need to send the camera and the charger to be evaluated.

Unable to update firmware

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
I am trying to update the firmware from 1.0 to 1.1.

I have the firmware bin file on the root of the card.
I turn on the camera and go into the Menu.
I select Settings and Firmware (at the very bottom).
I hit OK and it shows the firmware version (1.0).

Why can't I update it? I get no prompt for updating it.

I am having a problem with the battery being exhausted prematurely and I understand this update should resolve that.

Please help.

Answer: 
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS EXACTLY!

Copy the Firmware FOLDER to the card, not the bin file.

The camera does not recognize the bin file. It only recognizes a FOLDER called FIRMWARE and THEN it looks inside that folder for the bin file.

Once it recognizes the Firmware Folder (with bin file in it), it will ask to do the update.

Just follow prompts at that time.

Answer: 
I haven't found a selection where you can take fisheye photos, but you can change your photos to a fisheye effect. After taking your pic, go to playback and select menu. Under the menu options go to filter effects - there are a few options in addition to fisheye, like color select and painting, soft, etc. Play around with some of them. It's fun. Good luck hope you enjoy your camera.

No printed manual came with this camera. I realize that I can print off a copy from the software included, but I would rather not cart around an 8 x 11 unbound manual. My prior Coolpix camera included a nice little manual that I could put into my camera bag and carry with me on my trips. Why doesn't this newer version include a usable manual????
