Summary: I purchased a new Nikon Coolpix S6000 camera from Walmart about 2-3 years ago. My wife and I used it infrequently, usually when travelling. It was never dropped, submerged, or otherwise abused. Recently the lens cover wouldn't open completely when it was turned on. I called Nikon Support and was told I'd need to send it in for repair which would cost between $56 and $117. With postage, I'm approaching the cost of another (not Nikon) camera.
Summary: For a carry around camera this one can't be beat. Easy to use, easy to download and the photos while not professional quality are good enough for the family photo album, website, or research subjects.
