  • Summary: I did not have good luck with this camera; the battery was constantly "exhausted" but even when it was working the pictures were not as crisp and clear as I would have liked. At one point, another traveler used my camera to photograph me and commented on how poorly the camera was working. After getting back home, I attempted to download my photos on to my computer, but the USB cable was not the one pictured in the manual.

2 year owner ... Very unhappy.

D. Gilder "Deva ____", Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this camera for two years. I purchased it to replace my Olympus and wish I hadn't. This camera is horrible. If you are in natural light, or even artificial and the subjects are within a decent distance and not moving ... Then great. If you're at a concert, which I frequent, this is the WORST. Don't even think about taking a picture of people dancing. Don't even think about taking a picture of people not dancing.

Pictures are not always sharp even with different settings.

  • Summary: I would not buy this camera again. I had the Kodak EasyShare which took clear, crisp pictures but I decided it was time to update my camera. I bought the Coolpix for price and the good reviews. With this camera I cannot depend on my pictures to be sharp. I have tried many settings but I still get blurry pictures a lot of the time. I know I don't have the steadiest hand but I don't noticeably shake.

  • Summary: I bought this as a gift for my wife. While the color of the camera was fun, she was disappointed with the lack of features the camera had. The photos taken on the timer setting were always blurry. It was pretty much a lateral move from the cheaper phone she had previously. We ended up returning it and getting her a Samsung camera. She is in love with it. Samsung offers a wide range of options that this camera did not.

Very slow response time

Leslie McGonagle, Amazon
23 December 2012
  • Summary: I thought this was going to be better than the Canons - but this one seems to have been defective. By the time you want to take a picture, you couldn't get the camera open. Then pressing the button - the response time was delayed - missing the picture. Took forever to let the lense come into focus when you were expanding the shot,.

Misinformation and poor support

Mr Joel Mason, Amazon
14 November 2012
  • Summary: First of all, let me clarify that I am not a very tech savvy person; in fact, I don't even own a smartphone and I categorically hate dealing with any new tech device I get. Trying to understand the content of the manual for any tech product is comparable to having a root canal for me. To avoid as much frustration as possible, I referred only to the Quick Start Guide. I started out by charging the battery.

Huge disappointment

Ed Van Sicklin "Still Here", Amazon
13 July 2012
  • Summary: Switched to this camera after killing my Canon HS310 when a sudden squall in Panama soaked it. What most pisses me off with the 6300 is the lousy contrast performance. 80% of my subjects are in bright daylight and the Canon dealt with them much better than this camera. I just bought a Powershot SX260 so we'll see how their new one works out Like: Big zoom Size Dislike: Lousy performance in even medium contrast situations - blows out highlights Self-timer requires it to...

BLAH

Amazon
8 June 2012
  • Summary: Going by all the 5 star reviews I expected more... this camera is nothing special, you could get an $70 camera and it would take the same quality pics... HD?!! where? the pics are ok and the video, one word comes to mind LAME... you zoom it blurs and does not auto focus at all, pixelated like crazy, dont even think of using it in lowlight or indoors, I have a webcam and the "HD" is 1000x better this is a CHEAP back up DAYTIME OUTDOOR camera only, nothing more, dont think...

wish I hadn't bought it now

Mick Joyce, Amazon

  • Summary: Slow to switch on, Flash doesn't always work as required. We bought this to replace an old Kodak model but it doesn't come close, had it a while now and I'm just not happy with it.
