The COOLPIX S6100 is small enough to fit in a purse, pocket, or glove compartment—and powerful enough to capture landscapes, close ups, and portraits. This compact camera has a 16.0-megapixel CCD sensor that captures sharp, stunning images—along with a 7x wide-angle optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens that boasts a 28-196mm optical zoom to get close to the action. It’s ideal for day trips, weekend getaways, and last minute outings.

It’s so light you can slip it into your pocket and take it to the park for a family outing, an outdoor concert, or a day at the beach. Plus, it’s available in silver, black, red, and violet, so it’s as fashionable as it is portable.
  • newegg Touch the screen. Get the shot. Share the smiles The COOLPIX S6100 is ready to shoot whenever you are. Just take it out of your pocket and frame your photo or movie in the three-inch high resolution 460,000-dot touch monitor. Then touch the screen to adjust, focus, and shoot. It’s that simple. The COOLPIX S6100 includes in-camera Picture Editing, so you have access to Nikon technologies like Quick Retouch, Active D-Lighting, Soft Focus, and many others. This camera even tracks moving subjects, automatically keeping them in focus and minimizing motion blur. And the screen’s brightness control and anti-glare coating make it easy to compose, view, and share your photos—you can even watch them in a slide show, complete with music.
  • newegg Fashion elegance. Nikon excellence The COOLPIX S6100 is brimming with the Nikon technologies that make it a breeze to shoot high caliber photos. Its four-way Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization System automatically reduces the streaky images associated with shaky cameras. And its motion detector spots moving subjects and adjusts the camera’s settings to ward off motion blur. You’re sure to get crystal clear shots regardless of lighting conditions because the camera boasts ISO speeds up to 3200. And, with Nikon’s Best Shot Selector, you press the shutter once. The camera then takes 10 shots and selects the sharpest image.
  • newegg One-touch HD movie recording When a still picture doesn’t tell the whole story, turn your COOLPIX S6100 into a movie camera with the push of a single button. Instantly you’ll have HD 720p movies, complete with stereo sound. And you won’t miss a thing because you can zoom out to capture broad landscapes or pull in for tight shots and close ups.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Battery last a long time so I almost never have to worry about battery life as long as I have a full charge. Went on a 3 day vacation and took well over 150 pictures, many with flash and the battery still had enought power to last for plenty more without a recharge. Under casual use the battery only needs to be charged about every month or two.

Cons: I'm no photography nut but it seems to me that the clarity of the pictures could be better. Sometimes I notice that part of the picture will be clear and some parts very slightly out of focus with the settings on auto.

Other Thoughts: Easy to use, compact and as I said before the battery lasts a long time. For a point and shoot I would say this is an average camera. I have had no actual problems with the camera, but the picture quality could be better.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful

Pros: Takes great pictures!

Cons: The touch screen is kinda weird. It comes with a stylus that clips on the band and it is way easier to use than your fingers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera

Pros: Takes excellent pictures
Touch Screen
Easy Interface
Very slim fits in pocket very easily

Cons: Current price, I received mine during Newegg's black friday sales and was obviously well worth it. Still worth it with current price but has a lot of competition.

4 out of 5 eggsMight just send it back

Pros: The picture quality is super nice, same with the video.

Cons: Makes me feel like a idiot, I jumped on the deal newegg had without looking at all the specs. It requires a Nikon battery which by the way is some where near 40$ a piece. My experiences with batteries like this is the company will gouge you with the price of the battery and that the battery wont last very long. Oh you have to charge the battery in the camera as well. So even if you have extra batteries it will cause a problem.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Impressive Camera

Pros: Amazing picture quality. Tons of features on the camera with a nice optical zoom

Cons: When trying to transfer pics from the camera with the USB cable it seems to freeze up and I have to unplug the camera to make it continue sometimes.

Other Thoughts: Impressive quality pictures. Auto focus works good. The flash is super bright. Very nice camera for such a cheap price.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Camera !!!!!

Pros: I was amazed at the number of features this camera has. I'm not a computer wiz and the manual (both on paper and on a CD) helped immensely. It probably does more than I'll ever need, but who's complaining?

Cons: None that I can see.

Other Thoughts: I looked at PC Richards and Besy Buy for the same camera. Models of the same camera (S3100 and S4100) were MORE expensive than this S6100 !!
