Nikon S6100 16.0 Megapixel Stylish Reviews Roundup

On February 8 2011, Nikon announced four new stylish compact cameras - Coolpix S6100, S4100, S3100 and S9100. Aim for the sophisticated traveler, the new S9100 packs a 18x wide-angle Zoom- NIKKOR ED glass lens into a stylish compact body, supporting wide-angle (25mm) to super-telephoto (450mm). It comes with a 12.1 Megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor and ISO sensitivity up to 3200, as well as Backlighting scene mode with HDR functionality built-in, Night Landscape mode, Night Portrait mode and Nikon's hybrid VR image stabilization system. The S9100 features a 3-inch high resolution, 921,000 dot LCD monitor, full HD (1080p) movie recording with one-touch operation, optical zoom, stereo sound and the ability to capture still images during recording.
The S8000 features a 14.2 Megapixels sensor with a 10x optical zoom lens at 28mm wide angle. It comes with a 3inch 921,000-dot Clear Color Display LCD on which to frame and review images and movies. The camera supports ISO 3200 and a 4-way VR Image stabilization System. The high-definition movie function with stereo sound offers a resolution of 720p and a frame rate of 30 frames per second. The camera includes a new feature called the Creative Slider, which simplifies adjusting brightness, saturation and color tone in-camera by utilizing the Rotary Multi Selector. Like the S6000, it also support Sport Continuous Mode and Advanced Flash Control. The S8000 has the ability to acquire the subject and lock focus using Subject Tracking.

Nikon Coolpix S6100 Camera Reviews Roundup


Steve's Digicam - May 17 2011
"The overall quality of our outdoor images is good, but not great. Exposures and colors are excellent, but the problem comes from the amount of noise that you find when looking at the image at 100%. Even at ISO 80, there is enough noise to soften the sharp edges within the image. While it won't make a difference in prints 8x10 and under, you will see it in l..." More »

User Review of the camera - Nikon Coolpix S6100

    Great camera, Avidbuyer
    Lightweight with a lot of options. I like it. I just wish it came with a book of instructions instead of just a cd.

    Good and Simple to use camera, A Customer
    Verified Purchase(
    I love Nikon cameras but for all the new technology out this camera is kinda sluggish when it comes to taking the picture and writing it to the SD card. The screen on the back requires you to use the stylus that comes on the strap or the tip of your finger. So don't think it will work like your Android touch screen phone. It does come with a rechargeable battery and charger that holds up pretty good. The charger will work with other Nikon cameras so if you happen to have more than one Nikon like I do it can charge all of them. The menus are pretty easy to navigate and figure out. Takes good video and the display on the back is pretty clear especially being a big screen for such a small camera. Its best when used outdoors and in well lit areas. Even the different scene settings have trouble indoors with lower light. Everything must be absolutely still to prevent pictures from coming out blurry.
    I like it but I'm an advanced user so this camera feels like it holds me back some when I am at an event and I'm stuck waiting for it to let me take the next picture when I only have 1 opportunity to get a good shot.
    For $100 I feel I got an ok camera but not a great one.

    Great Little Camera, Syl Flower "Shopper Shark"

    I bought this because I couldn't find my other Nikon camera. It works great. I also found my other one and took
    them both on vacation to Florida. I like the touch screen on this new one.

    Bought two of these. For this price, I was a great deal. Great photos. Gave as gifts both of them. Now I am really thought highly of, that I would be so considerate to give such a good camera.

    The camera was good.
    But it has been replaced by the camera on the iPhone.
    Why carry an extra camera when you have one build into a smart phone.
    Obviously, I'm not a professional photographer.

    Nice camera overall. It's decent and although it's HD, when you record from afar it gets blurring sometimes.
    Not the best but for filming upclose, it's nice. The pictures depends on which settings you put it to.
    It gets annoying to adjust it constantly because sometimes it's too bright or too dark but you'll figure it out.

    Great point and shoot with some fantastic color enhancement features, Canyon "'80's Man"
    Verified Purchase(
    This camera has some great features, especially for taking scenic shots. You can adjust color saturation on the camera to take some amazing scenic shots of sunsets, landscapes, and water. The touch screen is easy to use but in some cases is too easy as a double tap causes the camera to actually take a picture. If you are fumbling around with in your bag or pocket to get the camera and it is on then it may take a picture unintentially. It also seems to randomly take a very long time (up to 15 seconds) to record the picture on the SD card. It has a descent zoom and pretty good wide angel for scenic shots. The video is also quite good. The 16 MP resolution makes for some very crisp and vibrant pictures. Not very good for fast or rapid shooting.
