For vacations with your family and friends, you need a reliable and versatile digital camera to record the moments that'll become beautiful memories. Nikon introduces the compact COOLPIX S6000 that boasts a stunning 2.7-inch Clear Color Display with anti-reflection coating, 7x optical zoom and HD 720p video recording, providing perfect performance in a compact package when you are enjoying a vacation!
With 14.2 effective Megapixels, you get amazingly crisp details and stunning prints as large as 20 x 30 inches. ISO 100 to 3200 light sensitivity lets you take incredible shots almost anywhere. Equipped with the NIKKOR ED glass lens, the EXPEED image processor ensures photographs have the most amazing color depth and clarity, and the 4-way VR Image Stabilization system helps you capture the clearest and sharpest pictures even when your hands aren’t steady or shooting fast-moving objects!
Scene Auto Selector automatically recognizes the scene in your picture and adjusts camera setting. 16 scene shooting modes mean you get the best image possible in various settings. Go from moonlight on the beach to full sun, and never miss an opportunity to capture a memory. The COOLPIX S6000 is tiny enough to fit into your pocket, and powerful enough to record those special moments.
Better than expected
This review is from: Nikon COOLPIX S6000 Champagne Silver 14.2 MP 7X Optical Zoom 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera
Pros: Excellent picture quality (even at low lighting - compensated by auto-flash in a lot of cases). 7X zoom. Compact. Easy setup and simple to use. up to 720p video and quality is very good. Takes picture of moving ceiling fan clearly with flash. Good face detection and blink detection. Excellent optical IS. Quick start till ready to take pictures.
Cons: USB connector cover is hard to open. No 3:2 image ratio support. 720p video once in a while skips a bit(probably due to the speed of my SDHC card - not a high class). Microphone is very sensitive that when recording a video, the sound of controlling the camera such as pushing and pulling the controller for zoom gets easily recorded. Can only zoom +2X once video recording is started (i.e. you can zoom before recording, but once started recording you can only do up to +2X zoom). If zoomed while recording video, image quality does get bit poor, but it still is good enough video image. Saves video in .mov file but is still in MP4 format, so is OK, but would have been better if it saved in .avi file.
Other Thoughts: I admit I didn't buy this from Newegg, but it's because there was sale in local store with a packaged deal with case and memory for a good price. Thus the memory I used is what came with the camera and probably not the best class which probably is the source of problem of bit of skipping when recording 720p video. It was a replacement of my Coolpix P80 which my son dropped and broke and it turns out this takes better point-and-shoot pictures than P80 which was whole lot more expensive when I bought it 2 years ago and still is more expensive than this S6000. I liked P80 having the 3:2 image ratio which this doesn't.. other than that, I think overall I am very happy with this camera.
