Product Details

Nikon COOLPIX S6100 Violet 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera, Model COOLPIXS6100VLT

Features:

Powerful
Finally, a camera you can take everywhere you go. The COOLPIX S6100 is small enough to fit in a purse, pocket, or glove compartment—and powerful enough to capture landscapes, close ups, and portraits. This compact camera has a 16.0-megapixel CCD sensor that captures sharp, stunning images—along with a 7x wide-angle optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens that boasts a 28-196mm optical zoom to get close to the action. It’s ideal for day trips, weekend getaways, and last minute outings.

Touch the screen. Get the shot. Share the smiles.
The COOLPIX S6100 is ready to shoot whenever you are. Just take it out of your pocket and frame your photo or movie in the three-inch high resolution 460,000-dot touch monitor. Then touch the screen to adjust, focus, and shoot. It’s that simple. The COOLPIX S6100 includes in-camera Picture Editing, so you have access to Nikon technologies like Quick Retouch, Active D-Lighting, Soft Focus, and many others. This camera even tracks moving subjects, automatically keeping them in focus and minimizing motion blur. And the screen’s brightness control and anti-glare coating make it easy to compose, view, and share your photos—you can even watch them in a slide show, complete with music.

One-touch HD movie recording
When a still picture doesn’t tell the whole story, turn your COOLPIX S6100 into a movie camera with the push of a single button. Instantly you’ll have HD 720p movies, complete with stereo sound. And you won’t miss a thing because you can zoom out to capture broad landscapes or pull in for tight shots and close ups. Better still, watching and sharing your movies couldn’t be easier, since the COOLPIX S6100 has an HDMI output for simple hookup to an HDTV or computer.

On the road, on the go, in your pocket!
Meet your ultimate travel companion: the ultra-slim COOLPIX S6100. It’s a mere 1.1 inches thin and weighs only 6.2 ounces. It’s so light you can slip it into your pocket and take it to the park for a family outing, an outdoor concert, or a day at the beach. Plus, it’s available in silver, black, red, and violet, so it’s as fashionable as it is portable.

Fashion elegance. Nikon excellence.
The COOLPIX S6100 is brimming with the Nikon technologies that make it a breeze to shoot high caliber photos. Its four-way Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization System automatically reduces the streaky images associated with shaky cameras. And its motion detector spots moving subjects and adjusts the camera’s settings to ward off motion blur. You’re sure to get crystal clear shots regardless of lighting conditions because the camera boasts ISO speeds up to 3200. And, with Nikon’s Best Shot Selector, you press the shutter once. The camera then takes 10 shots and selects the sharpest image.

Convenient Features
Carry the COOLPIX S6100 in your pocket or purse and it will always be on hand to take great shots. Its Smart Portrait System includes Smile Timer, which releases the shutter when a subject smiles. The COOLPIX S6100 also has Blink Proof technology, allowing you to capture two shots and save the one with eyes open. The COOLPIX S6100’s, in-camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects most instances of red-eye as you shoot. Face-Priority focuses on up to 12 faces and Skin Softening smoothes out skin tones.

Whether hiking in a park, or sitting at an outdoor café, you can easily capture crisp, detailed shots with the COOLPIX S6100. You also have your choice of 20 different Scene Modes to match your setting, or you can simply let Scene Auto Selector select one for you. Plus, it comes with a rechargeable Li-ion battery that lasts for approximately 210 pictures. .

      Comments about Nikon COOLPIX S6100 Silver 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera:

      This was the best camera I've bought so far in my lifetime of using cameras. I use my camera to take family photos, random things that catch my eye to be captured, such as beautiful scenery or wildlife. It's lightweight, has a surreal LCD screen, great zoom, & takes excellent quality photos! A brilliant product. A must have!

            Comments about Nikon COOLPIX S6100 Violet 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera:

            This is the best camera I have purchased to date. I took pictures of everything in sight within minutes. I love the ability to take a quick sequence of clear shots from 50 feet away for the action feel, but also to be able to get within an inch of a flower bud and get and perfect shot.

            I also like that I can edit photos right on the camera or wait to download them. And I mean really, a camera that can identify a person versus an animal. AMAZING! I tell it my dog is in the picture with the touch of one button, and there are no glowing eyes in sight.

            I am always looking for new ways to take pictures, and I think this camera is going to help me do just that.
