Pros: I bought this to replace a lost 6300,still getting used to it but I have taken over 500 pictures with it and the improved technology of the battery really shows-took 250 pics one day and didn't make a dent in the battery. The 12x zoom works great and the pictures come out excellent.
Cons: Still trying to get used to a different menu and adjusting for light and dark.
Excerpt: takes good pictures. compact. many features.
Pros: takes good pictures. compact. many features.
Cons: since i haven't had a chance to check out the features i want from this camera, their is a delay from when you press the button until the picture is taken. if there is any movement during that time (such as a baby turning its head) then the shot is not what you want.
Nice camera - good quality, lightweight, just what I was looking for

Excerpt: Photos are good quality, especially for the price. Lightweight and easy to carry in purse or pocket. Battery life is excellent so far. Easy set up. Easy to adjust settings such as turning flash on and off, much easier than other similar cameras I've owned.

Cons: The only drawback I have found so far is that there is a fairly significant delay between the time I press to take a picture and the time it actually takes. As I get used to it, it will be easier to adjust, but it is longer than other similar cameras I have owned.
So far, so good...after almost making a serious mistake in buying from another site

Summary: I've only recently received this camera so will update this review further after I've taken it on vacation (next week) and had the chance to really test it out. But I wanted so share my buying experience with other seekers of cameras of this type in the hope of warning them about being wary of other...
Excerpt: I’ve been an avid photographer for 30 years, and I’m accustomed to using both film and digital SLR cameras. As much as I love my DSLRs, they’re not always practical to carry around. I bought the Nikon Coolpix S6800 as a simple “grab and go” camera.
Pros: Good image quality Ease of use Good ergonomics Sturdy build quality Elegant design Very long 25mm to 300mm equivalent zoom range with digital zoom to 1200mm equivalent Small and slim, fits easily into a pocket
Cons: Meager 170 shot battery life Lens cover shutter can jam Edge of image softness at widest angle setting No manual control No hotshoe for external flash No RAW capability
Excerpt: Looks great, large screen, simple buttons, bargain price, good reputation
Pros: Looks great, large screen, simple buttons, bargain price, good reputation
Cons: Inadequate manual; does not tell you that you MUST use a memory Card, merely that it has an internal memory function. Which as you will find out only holds 2-5 pix, then has no more memory. So, you MUST buy the memory card which did not come with the camera. You then find out Nikon has a lame exc...
Excerpt: Good camera for those who want a small camera that is better than their cell phone camera. [...]
Pros: Small, easy to use, takes good pictures and video. Zoom works well.
Cons: Battery does not last long if you take continuous video so purchase a backup off Amazon. You will need to purchase a larger memory card 32MB minimum class 10. Shutter speed is average for this model but it is to be expected.
