Summary: Love this camera. Took this on a 3 week trip to asia. Much time was spent traveling on a small bus, so i used my camera to take numerous pictures out the window. My husband set the camera to sports mode due to moving bus and I couldn't believe how fantastic all my pictures came out. For such an inexpensive and tiny camera, I was and am very impressed!
Excerpt: As an ex full-time pro, I appreciate quality and value.<br />I currently own a Sony NEX-6 system, Olympus Stylus 1, Leica D-Lux 3, and a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX55 and the Coolpix.<br />each performs a specific function.<br />The Coolpix is used in my work at Lowepro, to create instructional images to get concepts across to my customers. It fulfills this need perfectly and reliably, and atva reasonable cost.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy Wifi Connection, Good Image Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Logical Controls Menus, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
Summary: Very disappointed. Almost within days of the guarantee expiring the camera collapsed. The technician at Nikon informed me that the "main board" had malfunctioned and cannot be fixed. Cannot get any positive response from Nkion or their agents in USA or Australia?/Asia. I must say the quality of the picture taking etc., is very good. Just the reliability of the camera's endurance within days of 12 months ownership is what is annoying and expensive.
Summary: This camera is the best point and shoot made and I was disappointed that Nikon discontinued it. Fortunately it is still available on Amazon. I have had three of these cameras and all were stolen. The newer versions of this camera just don't hold up to this one. Images are phenomenally detailed and clear. In movie mode, the images are crystal clear, even in the night time street scenes and the sound quality is surprisingly good.
Summary: This is my third Nikon...and my second S6500.....absolutely beautiful pictures....unfortunately...I....dropped my other one 3x's....after that it didn't take as clear pictures....But overall...I really LOVE this camera!!!

Summary: Camera was pretty good. Photos with motion come out blurry with various settings. After a little over a year (just after the warranty) the camera stopped functioning spontaneously. Sent to Nikon for repairs and they never called or emailed to let me know what was going on. I finally checked with them and they wanted $109 to repair a $160 camera which I didn't love to begin with, so I now have a Nikon paperweight.
