18 Scene Modes and Scene Auto Selector for effortless photos and videos

Experienced photographers optimize their camera settings to match the situation. The COOLPIX S6800 does that work for you. With 18 Scene Modes, including Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, Sunset and more, it's easy to match the moment to a Scene Mode. You can even get creative and use Scene Modes to alter ordinary shots. Or, select Scene Auto Selector and let the camera choose the best mode for your situation.

Superior low-light performance

High-performance CMOS image sensor lets you shoot without a flash

Imagine being able to shoot without a flash at weddings, concerts, parties—anywhere your flash normally fires. You won't have to interrupt a moment to capture it, and your photos will look more natural and true to your memory. The COOLPIX S6800 performs so well in low light situations that, in most cases, using the flash is optional. Of course, when the lighting is extremely poor and you need a flash, it'll be there.

Awesome!!! I bought this camera from Costco in California and i got it for $189.99 with a case and a 4GB SD Card. I have pretty much used all the features and i think this is a great camera!!! I have already recommended a lot of my friends to buy this camera as well. August 5, 2014
Me encanta su nitidez Hemos centrado la cámara S6800 por sugerencia del vendedor y nos ha gustado mucho todo lo que puede hacer, la nitidez el HD en video y el manejo de luz. Esta bien para estar con ella en cualquier sitio. August 10, 2014
Good pictures but camera died This camera is easy to use, great in low light ( much better than my more expensive Nikon models) and seems to take great pictures. The big problem is that is died after one week and after all the hassles trying to get it repaired I returned it, July 28, 2014

We have a Coolpix P330 which has a CMOS 1/1.7 sensor - 12.76 MP - image size of 4,000 X 3,000.
Is the S 6800 1/2.3 CMOS 16 MP sensor a more advanced or better sensor than the one on the P330.
We are satisfied with the quality of the P330, but me wife would like something longer than 120mm on the P330. 25-300 focal length in 35mm on the 6800 is more like what she would like.

Previous answer on GPS was unclear to me. I understand GPS is not built in. Many cameras add the GEO tag when it the image is uploaded to a smart-phone with GPS enabled, using your software. Is this how GPS works for the 6800?

I installed View NX2, but it said I need to install software drivers. I am unable to find the drivers, and Nikon has been no help. Do I have to use a card reader, or is there a way to transfer the photos by USB cable?
