5.0 out of 5 stars Needed a smaller camera 25 Aug 2012
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I own a DSLR camera, so I have something that can take great quality pictures and video, but its massive. Taking it anywhere it a real pain and taking it on holiday where there is no where secure to leave it is a big problem as its a very expensive camera. All in it probably costs about 1000, that is not something you want to leave laying around and as it won't fit in the room safe what other choice do you have....

So, I decided to buy a compact camera to take on days out and holidays etc. I looked around at what was available and found that things had moved on a lot since I had my last compact camera, and these days the compacts are not far away from the DSLR specs. As my DSLR is Nikon and I have always had Nikon's in the past I didn't see a reason to change brands which left me with a choice of several models.

Looking through the specs of them all this one seemed ideal:
Good MP rating
Great zoom
Decent size screen
720p Video with sound
Rechargeable battery

Those are the features that were important to me and this camera had them all. There was another model with 1080p video but it was more expensive and has slightly worse zoom capability, and 720p is good enough for me anyway!

So far this camera has been a few places with me and so far has not failed to disappoint. Its been on a speedboat, in a racing car, at a zoo, on a plane and its worked everywhere so far.
The battery seems to last a decent length of time, I have not managed to run it out on any one of my trips so far which is more than I can say for my last compact camera. The quality of the pictures it takes are fantastic and for such a small camera I don't think I could expect anything more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little camera S6200. 29 July 2012
By Royfot
Colour Name:Red|Verified Purchase
I have been looking for a small camera for some time, to be used by my wife and by myself when I am not carrying my DSLR, (D300+16/85+80/400). What attracted me was the price reduced to below 100. I suspect that the new S6300 -(which replaces this)- with its CMOS sensor may produce even better quality pics, but the quality out of this one is still superb. It is nice and easy to carry, fitting into a pocket even when in a soft case. It is fully automatic all the time, which is a bit limiting to someone like me, but that suits the other half exactly. I haven't actually tried yet, but I suspect, that the 45Mb on screen image size would allow high quality A3 or A3+ Prints to be made on a Photo Printer. Most of the output will be used for Facebook or Flickr and a decent Program is needed to reduce the pixel size down to what they need, and View NX2 which is provided can do that easily. I had a first attempt at producing a Panorama last weekend, and it was remarkably easy and successful, without even needing to make use of my Tripod - putting this little Red Camera onto a full size, 30 year old, tripod could look more than a little ridiculous, in any case.

Over all we are very pleased with it, and I did wonder,(for just a little while), whether I really needed all that heavy expensive Gear I normally use.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing photos 23 Jun 2013
Colour Name:Red
I've previously had a Panasonic which was about the same price as this and whilst the photos of this are decent (my Iphone takes decent photos), I'm very disappointed with the photos in comparison to what my Panasonic used to take. I'm finding that the selection of what to focus on can at times be very poor (i.e. 4 people in the main photos taking up nearly all of the screen and the camera focuses on the background). This may be some settings that I need to learn, however both the contrast of photos and definition falls short of my old camera (both are 16 mega pixels)

5.0 out of 5 stars New Coolpix 31 May 2012
Colour Name:Black
Having worn out my six year-old Coolpix S3 wherever I went it was there with me. I bought this camera at the airport to replace it... It does all it is supposed to do and more. The battery is bigger but cheaper...the charger is smaller and lighter...but there is no docking stand!

I was delighted with this Camera - it is so easy to use, and gives you plenty of different modes of shooting pictures. Having a 16 mega pixel lens is absolutely wonderful, and so far all my pictures have been really good.
