The quality on the pictures is AMAZING. The zoom is awesome. This is a great purchase. Small compact camera that gives you great results. I have been satisfied with the battery life. I have not had any issues.

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.

Great camera but view screen scraches easy
I have taken over 10,000 photos (counter just rolled over at 9999) with this camera since purchasing it in August of 2014. Wonderful camera, easy to operate, one hand operation and great photos with VR feature. The only problem is the view screen has become so scratched I can hardly see the photo displayed. I thought there may have been a screen protector covering the LCD screen & it needed to be taken off or replaced but that is not the case. I’ve had many similar cameras in the past that do not come close to the superior photo quality of the S6800 and none of them has ever had the display screen scratch like this one. I use a soft cell phone case on my belt to keep the camera in when not in use. Nikon could have done a better job protecting the LCD screen. No other issues to report other than I would buy it again but this time also purchase a screen protector before putting in service.

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.

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,

Died after 45 days
The camera worked well, while it worked. After 45 days of using it periodically, and taking great care with it, the screen stopped working. It still takes pictures, but you can't see what you are taking a pic of unless you use the iPhone as the screen.
I have tried to submit an online repair form 11 TIMES.. and the form refuses to accept the submission.
Of course the camera should work, but when it doesn't NIKON should step up, send me a post paid mailer and get it back to me right away. If I had purchased this from Amazon, I'd return the product and get a replacement with no hassles. Since i made the mistake of buying from Walmart, they are of NO help whatsoever.
This should not be so hard. I should not have to do work and waste time to get the product I paid for. C'mon Nikon, you can do better.

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.
