This was a great camera coolpix S6500 until it stopped working I thought the battery just wore out so I bought two more, but that was not the problem. So I did some looking around and found a comment section and I see other people have had the same problem. I called the tech line and they were no help told me to send it in for repairs and pay them more money I'm not very happy I paid $239 for it at wall mart there should be a recall on it they no there is a problem with this model.

Even I can do it! (I am technologically challenged.) Actually, this is my second Coolpix S6500. I unfortunately lost my first, and immediately went out and purchased the same to replace it.

A Gift of Anguish
Received this camera 1 year 3 months ago as a gift. Used it outside of the house 3x's after researching how to use it because the provided instructions are minimal at best. ("how to use features" may have been written in another language that completes 75% of these instructions) Now all the camera does is "Lens Fail" when turned on. Nikon wants $79 + S&H to fix it? I'm now a proud owner of a $170 "door stop"! Thanks Nikon
.....Now Nikon is asking me MORE information about myself to complete this review, THAN the instructions that came with this product!

Lens Problems & Poor Support
We have owned two of these cameras. They provide everything we look for in a simple point and shoot. However both cameras have developed lens problems. On the first the telescopic function often malfunctions. On the other, the lens aperture does not close completely. On the second, it failed within the warranty period. I mailed to the service center address provided with the warranty. After 3 weeks it was returned by USPS as undeliverable. I called support. She promised to e-mail the correct address. I never received it. I registered at the Nikon site and asked for the correct address. Three days later, I have not received it. I called support again and asked for the address over the phone. I have mailed the camera to the new address at my expense (twice). Let's see what happens now.

This is my second Nikon. I am going to wait to complete my review until I see how the service is.
