Summary: The auto focus drove me crazy. it is completely and utterly unable to auto focus on objects that move even slightly, even pictures of a group of children standing stationary! For instance, when focusing on a group of people, the camera can not decide which person to focus on and so it just keeps trying. When it does eventually focus, the slightest sideways movement of one person simply restarts the process!
Summary: I previously owned Nikon S220 camera which I loved, the battery lasted almost 2 weeks whilst on vacation without having to charge, when that camera finally died I decided to stick with Nikon. I noticed the S6200 on sale and now realize why IT IS AWFUL the battery does not hold a charge, I sent camera in 3 times under warranty and they kept sending back saying everything is fine, battery depleted.
Summary: Wanted the perfect compact camera to have when on the run with my children. The lightening on the pictures was not always the best and my flash stopped working for no reason. Be aware that once the flash goes, the camera is done.
Hate everything about it but video, which eats batt.

Summary: Fuzzy pictures, grainy, must edit to get any kind of quality shot. Have a few remarkable photos, but only with 200 ISO and outside in relatively clear weather. Worst camera for outdoor adventurers. The size is portable and it takes good video, except that kills the battery in nothing flat so you get few shots if you take any video. I have so many lost shots of wildflowers and summits in overcast weather. I have the few greats I mentioned because the weather was perfect.
Summary: I purchased this camera in may of 2012. I used this camera for 5 months and then lost image on one half of the LCD screen,so I sent it in to Nikon for repair under warranty.Nikon contacted me and told me I would have to pay over one hundred dollars to get it fixed even though it was under warranty.I checked with the BBB and found out Nikon has a F-Rating with the BBB at their repair center and that they had 199 complaints at that time.I wished I had have checked BBB...
Summary: I received this camera as a Christmas gift and within 6 months (still brand new, hardly used at this point), the camera would not focus at all and all images were blurred. Nikon service agreed it was defective and "replaced the lens and adjusted the flash". It was returned to me completely unfixed...all images still blurred.
Summary: This camera is terrible. I tried to return it but don't have the box so they won't take it back. I had no idea I would be returning it. I have a Nikon D90 and it's wonderful, however, I always use a compact camera for ease in traveling local and away. The pictures are distorted like they were taken in a fun house.
Summary: I was very excited to purchase my first Nikon camera since I've heard such great things. This camera has so many great features to offer I thought for sure I would love it. What I quickly found out was the camera is great but EXTREMELY slow to process. I kept thinking my lack of patience was the problem, but I went to my friends 4 yr old's bday party and needless to say this camera could not keep up with the kids running around.
