Summary: Pros: great quality little pocket camera. Decent pictures and zoom features, good close up and pretty good dim light performance. Great stabilization feature. Nice audio video quality as well. The negative goes to Nikon's choice of having a proprietary USB connection for battery charging and picture access. Replacement USB cables are very pricey and usually only available at camera stores carrying the Nikon brand. Cables are much cheaper online and can work great.
Summary: This camera takes nice pictures. It's not as easy to use as my Canon was but due to bad customer service with Canon, I decided on a Nikon. Pretty easy to use though. I'm still getting used to it and figuring out how to use the different features. I had taken a video over the weekend and that turned out pretty well.
Fast start up and shutter speed, great size, durability and consistent photo quality may be an issue

Summary: After dropping my Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 4x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7-Inch LCD (Silver) I was looking for a point n' shoot camera that was small enough to put in my pocket or purse, but still full-featured and with a price less than $150. I found it in the Coolpix S6000. Reviews for this camera on Cnet and YouTube convinced me it would be a good buy, but I wasn't expecting to be instantly 'wowed' by it!
Summary: I purchased this camera to take with me to Iraq while deployed. I wanted something that would fit in my pocket, have good zoom capability but was fairly inexpensive. This has been a terrific little camera. I let my 11-year old son use it before I left and he took some terrific photos with it. I'm really surprised at the One- and Two- star reviews stating they had fuzzy pictures, etc. He and I have had no problems.
Summary: So far, the camera has delivered as it said it would. I've taken mostly indoor photos and it does great with indoor/natural lighting...the pictures were nice and sharp and the colors were stunning. And it actually captures the facial details of my black cat which is not an easy thing to do. I'm still playing with the different scene options but the panoramic assist is great!
Summary: I purchased this camera about a week ago. So far it is decent, but not incredible. The major con with me is the purple fringing that appears when a little over exposed. It mostly happens on out door photos along the skyline. I am finding that I can some times fix it with the exposure dial, but not always. I take a lot of photos outside, so this is an issue with me. Other than that it does take some really nice pics. The flash is a little weak.
Summary: i was up in arms when my ancient point and shoot died. it meant a search for a new one that was just as great as my old one, not too complicated and within a decent budget. my old camera was a cannon and i really loved its straight forward simplicity. after not being able to find a cannon that impressed me and had consistently good reviews along with fitting into my budget, i decided to check out the highly advertised coolpix range by nikon.
