Nikon Coolpix S6000 Feature Highlights

EXPEED digital imaging technology
Nikon's smarter approach to digital imaging technology. From image capture to processing, Nikon's comprehensive EXPEED digital imaging concept encompasses the entire picture-taking operation. EXPEED is much more than a processing engine; it is a revolution in digital photography.

High-Definition movie recording
Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
Entertain audiences with movies that capture the impact of the scene with HD. The Coolpix S8000 can shoot up to 1.5 hours* of HD movies (720p) with sound at 30fps. HDMI output is also available for easy in camera playback on your TV or computer.
*Recording stops automatically after 29 minutes. This figure is based on in-house testing standards and stated for recording at 25°C with a fully charged EN-EL12 battery. Actual results may vary greatly depending on factors that include differences in ambient temperature, and the amount of zoom and autofocus operations used.





Four advanced image stabilization features ensure sharper results
Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
VR image stabilization in action
Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
Compensating for the effects of camera shake to realize sharper results and contribute to a more reassuring shooting experience, lens shift VR stabilization frees you to enjoy capturing special moments without worrying about slight hand movements. High ISO 1600 capability at any image size up to its maximum of 4320 x 3240 pixels allows faster shutter speeds when shooting in low light or capturing fast-moving subjects. Motion Detection automatically controls shutter speed and the ISO setting to compensate for subject movement as well as camera shake. Advanced flash control enables natural and beautiful flash photos even when subjects are backlit or when shooting telephoto by enhancing ISO sensitivity, rather than opting for slower shutter speeds. With advanced flash control, users can shoot with more flexibility in the night and when subjects are far away.



2.7-inch, 230k-dot TFT LCD featuring Nikon's Clear Color Display
Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
The high quality 2.7-inch Clear Color Display for the Coolpix S6000 features an ultra wide-viewing angle, anti-reflection coating, and screen brightness adjustment. The monitor's structure greatly reduces reflection and improves visibility outdoors for a more vivid, clearer image preview and playback.





Nikon's Smart Portrait System with Skin Softening
Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
As part of Nikon's Smart Portrait System, a series of advanced functions help produce consistently great portraits. The Skin Softening function ensures smooth skin tone on the face of subjects by leveraging built-in face-detection technology. Automatically detecting as many as 12 faces in the shot, Face-priority AF helps produce satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure. Smile Timer helps to faithfully record precious moments by automatically releasing the shutter when the subject smiles. Blink Warning alerts the photographer when it suspects that a subject has blinked, while the Blink Proof function shoots five sequential frames, then saves the one in which the subject's eyes are wide open. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.



Subject Tracking
Subject tracking automatically detects a human face and then continues to track and focus on that subject. Particularly useful when capturing children as they move naturally, Subject Tracking even functions if the subject moves out of the frame and returns within three seconds

I wanted a small point & shoot camera that would be easy to take with me, that had a great optical zoom, that took HD movies and most importantly could take quick pictures. I tried out many cameras in stores before finding this one and so far have been very, very pleased. I am able to quickly capture my kids smiles and the pictures are super clear. Plus, you are able to zoom while in movie mode. The 7x optical zoom is fantastic. I love that I can touch up photos right on the camera and right from the get go the camera was easy to use. I find that the buttons are set up very well in a user friendly manner.

This is my third in the Nikon Coolpix line, and I love it just as much as my previous ones! If you're a fan of any Nikon Coolpix, this will certainly be something you like!

My only disappointment is that there isn't a "Sports" setting anymore, which was something I used a lot on my older models. However, the camera takes such fast pictures that it hasn't really become a problem as of yet.

Battery life is good... haven't taken the time to see how many pictures it has per charge, but it's held up through at least 200 pictures at a graduation I went to recently without any battery indications.

The charger is different than previous the Nikon Coolpix cameras I've owned, as it plugs directly into the camera as opposed to having to remove the battery. I'm not sure whether I like this, because the AC OUT cover is kind of stubborn to come out. Again, it's nothing that's become a problem.

The HD movie is pretty cool. I haven't recording much with it, but the quality on it is wonderful. The record button is on the back of the camera, by the menu, which makes it extremely easy to switch from camera to movie. No setting change! This is definitely one of my favorite features, and is perfect if you like to take both stills and video!

The zoom is great, and takes crisp shots from a good distance!

The smart portrait feature is fun, but probably not something I'll really use. It's a good replacement if you don't want to use the self-timer, but again, it's kind of a pointless feature. Still interesting, though.

I haven't played with the Subject Tracker yet, to be honest. I'll add more to this once I get a chance to mess around with it for a little while.

Overall, it's a great camera!

This camera rocks! The pictures are so crystal clear that it is like looking at them in person! I also like the 7x optical zoom, which you are able to use during video recording. It has easy buttons to operate and there are tons of options to play with and very user friendly. It also takes close-up pictures up to 3mm that are NOT blurry! It has lots of options to have automatically set and very easy to switch to when chanigng scenery or from portrait to landscape. It also has the option of choosing one of your own pics as a screen saver every time you turn on the camera. I like that I can change colors of photos (i.e. black & white, sepia) with the press of a button or use the "vivid color" option. It has a great stabilizer and facial recognition software to remove red eye, tell you when someone has blinked in a pic or can soften skin in a photo. I also have a Fuji Finepix SLR camera, but wanted a smaller point and shoot camera for my honeymoon to Alaska this summmer and I am psyched to use this one!

Sorry, but this'll be brief. I decided to try a Nikon after many, many years of Canon usage (still have several). This Nikon S6000 seemed like a lot of bang for the buck. My impressions so far:

Pro's: Great pics, small size, easy to use, great macro, automatic scene selection, good focal length

Con's: Power button too small, takes WAY too long to zoom after turning on, zoom is in large jerky steps so it's hard to find that "right" framing, poor battery/SD cover design - have to latch the door all the time (not spring loaded), flash use not always predictable in certain light.

Would I buy it again? Probably not...YMMV

I bought this camera before my 2 week trip to Italy. My previous camera was a 2002 Nikon Coolpix 3500 which I liked but was outdated. This camera is a big improvement. And I used the video feature while on a boat along the Cinque Terre coast! It did a great job and I have a nice memory of that beautiful coast line.
The only thing I don't like is that it makes you charge the battery inside of the camera. But I only had to recharge the camera twice in 2 weeks and took almost 400 pictures and videos. So very happy with the battery power.

This camera is much lighter than my old camera and I love that. Very easy to handle and learn how to use; menus are intuitive. New features for me that I really like is the panorama shots and the auto selector. Didn't have these on the 3500.

Overall I love this camera but then I'm not looking for SLR quality. My main use is for travel photos.

Don't let the size of this little fellow fool you. Although basically a point-and-shoot, this small camera produces pictures that are comparable to the bigger models.
In fact, it was a bigger model that led me to the COOLPIX S6000. I own, and love, my Nikon D300. The pictures it takes are nothing short of amazing. However, the weight and bulk of it sometimes get in the way of life. Sure you shoot pictures that are professional but there are times when you need to capture the moment but not with all the creative functionality weighing you down. That's where the S6000 shines. The Nikon technology and genius with photography are evident with the end product. True, you don't get to compensate for a lot of things and the price is a bit stiff for a second camera but it is one that you will use continually - either by itself or one that is easier to transport.
