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.
Summary: I'm a lifetime Nikon fan. Do not buy this camera. The long zoom mechanism is not reliable. It sticks and has trouble focusing. To get it to focus, we have to repeatedly power up the camera, or repeatedly half push the shoot button, very annoying and time consuming.
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.
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.
Summary: I did not have the camera 2 weeks and the lens in it started to stick and when I got online to see if it was going to be hard to fix I found out that this is a VERY common problem with the Coolpix and that Nikon is aware of it. I would not suggest buying this camera.
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S6300 is certainly a handy size and has many desired features. One precaution should be observed, however. When my camera turned up with a damaged LCD screen, having never been dropped nor abused, I was told by sales personnel where I purchased it that it is extremely fragile and...
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.
Summary: This camera turns out to be too good to be true. I got it cause it was a good price, nice design, light, and long optical zoom lens. I saw some sour reviews on it, but also some really nice ones. So I decided to go with the nice ones.
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.
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.
