Portable versatility

Compact, powerful 10x optical zoom

Imagine the photos and movies you can capture with a compact camera that features a powerful 10x optical zoom lens. Vary your shots: zoom out to capture the fun and laughter at a party, zoom in to frame a winning goal. Your photos and HD movies will be sharp and clear thanks to the S6300’s versatile 10x optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens (25–250mm) with built-in optical VR Image Stabilization technology.

Capture all the family action

High-resolution 16.0 MP CMOS sensor

With the S6300’s 16.0 MP CMOS sensor, awesome images can be shot under challenging low-light conditions. Capture spontaneous fast action with this highly responsive camera. The CMOS sensor technology directs a maximum amount of light to each pixel to render high image quality even when the light is dim.

Bring it home in motion

Full HD (1080p) movies with stereo sound

Touch a button and start your movie recording with continuous autofocus and stereo sound! Memorable moments are saved in Full HD (1080p). Get creative and have fun recording slow- and fast-motion movies, too. When you’re ready, play back your movies and photos on an HDTV (via the camera’s HDMI port) or a computer. Best yet, upload to the Web to share your memories with everyone.

Wide-view panoramas

Get 180º and 360º views of your world

Easy Panorama Mode combines multiple shots into a seamless 180º or 360º panoramic image. Begin by focusing on your starting point. Once the camera detects your directional pan, the shooting starts and images begin stitching together in-camera. Use the handy in-monitor guidelines to keep the view aligned and track your progress. Amazing!

Make it fun for all

A host of in-camera Special Effects

Apply in-camera Special Effects such as Low Key, High Key, Nostalgic Sepia, even Selective Color to add a creative touch to images and movies. Or, add a creative Filter Effect like Fisheye or Miniature to your still shots in playback.

IT is Great fun and good ------------------------------------- May 23, 2014
Great for all my needs! I am a jewelry designer/metalsmith. This camera works for all my up close photos of jewelry and tutorials that I make. The audio is amazing. I record my guitar player/hubby at his shows and it records audio beautifully. I highly recommend this camera. I have been using it for over two years now. And I have to admit I have dropped it several times and it's still working great. Thank goodness. December 14, 2013
great camera for a compact I really like that image quality and the battery life is great took 400 pic at a weeding (moderate zoom light flash, and light video taking) The size is great to take on trips September 25, 2013
My S6300 is AMAZING! I use this camera at work and for personal pictures. I take photos for several online auction sites and website photos, as well as using it for family pictures and vacations. I absolutely love the S6300. It's been one of the only cameras that I've ever kept around instead of using my phone. I'm by no means a professional photographer or anything like that, but as far as personal use goes this is DEFINITELY a good camera. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an easy to use, good quality camera. August 1, 2013
Great camera! Love the size, ease of use, and the quality of the pictures! May 27, 2013

Is it possible to save photos directly to an external HD without using a computer?

I will be traveling on an extended trip. The only electronics I would consider taking are my Coolpix s6300, an external 1 TB hard drive, an iPad Mini, or an iPod Touch. It doesn't appear that I can download pics from the SD card directly to the iPod touch. The iPad Mini doesn't have enough space on it to download the pics.

So, the only other thing I could think of was to see if it was possible to download pics from the camera straight to my external HD. I know it's a long shot, but I thought I would ask.

I point and focus the camera, click the shutter button on top of the camera, hear it click and see it flash. But then I can't find the picture either in playback mode on the camera or when I connect camera to PC to download the photo. The guidance given in the "trouble shooting" section of the manual for this problem is incomprehensible. Can someone tell me how to fix this?
