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 »

    Nikon does not support their own product, James Montgomery
    Nikon does not support their own products. I received a Nikon as a gift a few days ago. The box was factory sealed and yet the LCD screen was broken. Nikon's response: sorry we do not exchange any item for any reason!

    Easy to use, but resolution was not what I expected. Videos are not very long. Would not recommend purchasing if you are looking for high quality pictures.

    Use Camara Right Away, Ruined Christmas
    I purchased this camera while vacationing in South Carolina and since I had an old camera I did not use my new one until Christmas this year or I thought I would.
    I charged the battery back in February when I bought it and then thought I would use it for Christmas. The camera was dead so no problem we got the charger out and low and behold nothing, nada. We tried it in the socket and on our computer and still nothing.
    My son who is a computer whiz was stumped so we figure it needs repairing which seems odd since we had never used it.
    Now I am in Canada without a warranty and without a camera unless I either pay for a new battery or who knows what it wrong with it. Did anyone else experience this problem?

    Long battery life, excellent lens & mirrors, all produce quality pictures. Nikon has a perfect camera in this little point-and-shoot. If you're looking for a small, tag-a-long camera for quick spur of the moment shots, this is it!

    All around a good bargain, NathanJP

    For the price, this is a great camera. It is of high quality, takes good photos and is reasonably priced. The 7x zoom comes in handy, though I have to put it on sport mode to counter act my shaky hands. The downside is I thought the pictures would be a little better coming from Nikon. I think my old 3MP Kodak I bought at Walmart looked at least as good.
    Higher end point and shoot cameras offer features such as 1080p video recording (this one is 720p), panorama mode and higher zoom levels. If these are important features to you, then I recommend that you buy a different camera. If not, this is a solid purchase.
