Brilliant images anywhere.


Finally, a camera you can take everywhere you go. 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.

Meet your ultimate travel companion: the ultra-slim COOLPIX S6100. It's a mere 1.1 inches thin and weighs only 6.2 ounces. 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.

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.

Nikon's Best Shot Selector
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.

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. Better still, watching and sharing your movies couldn't be easier, since the COOLPIX S6100 has an HDMI output for simple hookup to an HDTV or computer.

Convenient Features

Carry the COOLPIX S6100 in your pocket or purse and it will always be on hand to take great shots. Its Smart Portrait System includes Smile Timer, which releases the shutter when a subject smiles. The COOLPIX S6100 also has Blink Proof technology, allowing you to capture two shots and save the one with eyes open. The COOLPIX S6100's, in-camera Red-Eye™ automatically corrects red-eye. Face-Priority focuses on up to 12 faces and Skin Softening smoothes out skin tones.

Whether hiking in a park, or sitting at an outdoor café, you can easily capture crisp, detailed shots with the COOLPIX S6100. You also have your choice of 20 different Scene Modes to match your setting, or you can simply let Scene Auto Selector select one for you.

This is a great little camera with alot of fun features. I had a hard time deciding between the s8100 and the s6100 because the s8100 takes faster pictures, 1080 video, a better sensor, and bigger zoom.The features listed below are the reasons I chose the s6100.

Touch screen--can use your finger but it can be a little tricky to move it just right. It does come with a stylus that allows you to move through the screens quickly. Makes it very easy to get through the menus. The menu on the left has the options for flash, self-timer, macro, and exposure compensation. The menu on the bottom has the options for touch shutter, image mode, movie options, and settings. The battery levels are always displayed in the left hand corner so there is no guessing how much battery is left. Above that the scene mode is displayed.

Scene selection--There are 19 scenes to choose from plus the scene auto selector. When you push the scene button and all 20 options are listed there is a question mark box in the upper right hand corner that will explain the different modes to help you choose the right one.

Filter Effects--It has the ability to draw or write on photos, add decorations, cross screen, fish eye, selective color, black and white, sepia. I have messed around with a few of these features, I will try to upload a few pictures. It also has glamour retouch and skin softening.

Playback button--Has options to star a photo as favorite, delete, slide show, protect, print, draw, retouch, voice record, and settings.

Charger--This camera can charge through your computer or it also has an adapter much like most cell phones now do so you can use the USB cord to charge using an outlet. There is a light on the back that flashes to let you know it is charging.

Purchased this camera while looking for a small yet high quality point and shoot style camera. This camera has great features in a small enough package to bring on the go. The optical zoom works wonderfully. Touch-Panel LCD is a nice feature.

Only complaint I have with the camera is the image review after taking a picture lasts a seemingly long time. If you are trying to take multiple pictures quickly it can be annoying as the previous image takes up the screen so you can't preview your next picture. Also, the touch-panel LCD isn't as responsive as you'd like it to be, but if you use the included stylus on the wrist strap it works just fine. Just don't expect iPod Touch-quality responsiveness.

Bottom line:
Purchase this camera if you are looking for a point and shoot camera with good features, optical zoom, and a decent MegaPixel rating that come in a small package.

Color Name: Silver
I've owned this camera for 3-months and waited until now to write a review because it was a gift and I really wanted to like this camera. But the more I've used it the less I like it. To be fair, it can take a descent picture under optimal conditions if you are careful, but so can a 1968 Kodak Brownie in the right hands. I really expected more from Nikon and modern electronic technology.

Let me give you a little more background... I'm 63 years old and I've been taking pictures since I was 8 years old. Last winter I suffered a stroke which affected the coordination in my left hand and I found it difficuly to operate my Nikon D50 SLR. My wife, trying to be nice to me bought an S6100 for my birthday because she assumed that a point-and-shoot would be easier and less frustrating for me to use than my D50 SLR. I was excited to get it and try it out. The Nikon S6100 was smaller, lighter and easier to carry. As far as being easier to use,
it is NOT! A person would expect an automatic point-and-shoot camera to be just that, point it, press the shutter release and get a fair picture most of the time. That's something this camera can't do with any regularity. A pox on Nikons house for the damn touch screen controls! Why have a touch screen shutter release function that duplicates the function of the shutter release button? While you try to hold the camera with your right hand you are almost forced to touch the screen while trying to frame the image and push the "real button". This more often than not activates the shutter resulting in a picture of the ground, your pant leg, or shoe. Then while you wait for the exceedingly slow electronics to store that image on the memory card, you miss several oportunities to try for a good shot. Would that this was the only problem with the touch screen.

Color Name: Silver
I have had this camera for about 4 hours now, so I am obviously a professional here. But I am amazed at this camera. I'll try and keep it short. The camera pictures are great indoors, great outdoors, great macro, good 7x opti zoom, Good white balance, great low light. Functionally, it is a simple interface, fast start to shoot time about 2-3 seconds, no noticeable shutter lag, flash is good for very short range, poor after about 7-10 feet and tends to not illuminate the entire photo, unless subject is very close.
Unless you are well schooled in SLR cameras, this will take as close to a perfect photo within a near range of subjects. If you want to zoom in on a players nose hairs from the balcony of the stadium, this camera will not do it. If you want to photograph your kids in normal light to dusk at 1-60 feet away. I don't believe you could improve upon this camera. I have not used it in bright outdoor light yet, so no opinion there. Unless you need a stronger zoom or flash, you cannot go wrong with this camera. It is simple fast and takes near magazine quality photos.
