Bought for its small size
if you have enough light and can hold it perfectly still, you can get some nice shots, otherwise it can produce grainy/ blurry shots. don't expect to do much cropping due to the graininess. i wanted a small camera i could always carry so bought this. i normally use a dslr. video looks pretty good but the mic is worthless and there is no port to plug in a good mic. kind of slow between shots and focus. if you spot a moose next to the road, by the time you get this camera out, turn it on, zoomed and focused, the moose will be long gone. forget about anything faster. for family pics, shots of the new motorcycle, etc., it is ok. about what i expected for the price.

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,

I received my coolpix s 6800 yesterday. It charged up in about an hour. The panoramic setting doesn't work and the battery only allowed me to take less than 20 pictures before it died. I went to charge it up 3 hours ago and it still hasn't taken any charge. I will be sending it back.
