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 was great!!!!
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. This would allow me to hold the camera more steady, especially under low light conditions.
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.
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. Never had that happen with the 4300, but likely a common problem with all the new tiny cameras.
