Summary: I had my other one...the S6000 for 8 years & was very pleased with it. I purchased it for mainly video cuz I have a Nikon DSLR. It is a great price for what it does :-) The quality of the photos can be a little grainy for me but for you it might be perfect :-) For what I put the last one through it...
Summary: This is a replacement for a previous S6300 that was damaged. This is a great little camera. It is compact, lightweight and easy to use. The photos are sharp and clear. My only complaint is that I am an old-school photographer and I miss the eye-level viewfinder.
Summary: It would have been nice if somewhere on the box it would have said that you can only store 7 pictures on it with the sd card. I sent my daughter to camp for a week and she could only take 7 pictures. I have bought an SD card and so we are ready for our next trip.
Summary: This camera is the perfect size to throw in a purse and take for dinner or a night out but it is very finicky on lighting. The pictures are often over exposed if the flash is needed and generally struggles in low light. If you can get the lighting right, the pictures are great.
Very Nice Camera for Conditions That Aren't Too Dusty.

Summary: Love the camera overall - excellent photo quality and features. I replaced my old Nikon 4300 with this - it's a fraction of the size and weight. My only complaint is that I've had to send it in for service due to dust interfering with the lens extension / bellows assembly.
