Summary: Brand-new camera didn't work. Sent to Nikon repair facility. Returned unrepaired. Camera was never mishandled. Much red tape and paperwork for no satisfactory result. Hope to get a refund. Will not get a replacement. Nikon website to handle repairs was literally non-functional.
it has not turned out to be a very good camera. My biggest complaint is the autofocus mode

Summary: I received this as a gift a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, it has not turned out to be a very good camera. My biggest complaint is the autofocus mode. The camera will get hung up trying to focus, and I have to constantly play with the zoom control to get it to focus clearly.
Bad purchase; especially in lowlight, with movement

Summary: Waited an entire year of using this camera before I posted a review. This camera is awful, especially in low light or with any movement (ie. taking pictures of children). Most pics are blurry and despite having a professional play around with the settings, couldn't get the camera to function well.
Summary: This is the worst camera ever! It does take a decent photo, when it takes it, but as that is only about 10% of the time. The shutter is so slow that by the time it actually takes the photo you have completely missed the moment, or the group is getting annoyed.
Summary: Nikon Coolpix s6300.. Actually I have purchased three in the last year. I did drop the first one but not the others. "Service" claimed that was the problem. I have a spare charger and batteries to guard against the short life.
Summary: I bought this camera for my Europe trip this past summer because the only camera I use is my iphone, which doesn't take great pics at night or indoors. This camera was very slow to take pictures. The battery died quickly after it was fully charged.
Summary: I purchased this camera for our trip to Europe. I also purchased the hard case to protect it. We wanted a small camera that would easily fit in my purse or around our neck. The first day, it worked great, and the picture quality was excellent.
Summary: Initially I was impressed with this camera. I took it on an African safari and it did surprisingly well when compared to the far more expensive SLR cameras. But half-way through the safari, the camera simply refused to turn on.
