Fast shooting performance; nice features, good design for the money.
Noticeably soft photos with lots of purple fringing.
The Nikon Coolpix S6000's features and performance are very good for its price, but its photos are best suited for small prints and Web use.

Camera works flawlessly. Easy to use with the normal Nikon features and controls. LCD viewfinder is large and very good. I have a Nikon D60 and wanted a smaller camera that could be easily carried. This S6000 is perfect for what I needed.
The Nikon Coolpix S6000 is a sleek, user-friendly compact ultrazoom camera with a surprisingly long 7x optical zoom (a 35mm equivalent lens range of 28mm to 196mm). It occupies the middle ground between standard ultracompact point-and-shoot cameras with 3x or 4x optical zoom, such as Nikon's own S4000, and compact ultrazooms with 10x optical zoom and higher, such as Nikon's S8000
The S6000 is a small, lightweight camera at 3.8 inches wide, 2.2 inches high and 1 inch thick (97x55x25mm), with a weight of only 5.5 ounces (156 grams). It has a 1/2.3-inch, 14.2 megapixel sensor, probably the same sensor that is in the S8000. The S6000 comes in four colors - silver, red , black and bronze
Nikon packages this model with an EN-EL12 lithium-ion battery, an adaptor for plugging into a power source to recharge the battery, a USB cord for transferring files and battery recharge, an A/V cable, a wrist strap, a CD-ROM containing a 164 page User's Manual and various software programs including Nikon's ViewNX picture transfer and organizing software. The camera I received also contained a paper version of the User's Manual.
BUILD AND DESIGN
The first thing one notices about the S6000 is its attractive, burnished metal front section. All the parts seem to be of high quality, with excellent fit and finish. The camera, while small and lightweight, feels solid. After two weeks of inhabiting my pocket it did not seem the least bit worn.
The S6000's buttons and dials work as they should. The camera has solid, tight-fitting coverings over its A/V and HDMI ports. Its wrist strap is well designed, as it is a good size (not too small) and loops over a solid metal ring built into the side of the camera. Its battery/memory card compartment cover, while plastic, seems firmly attached to the camera body, and is closed by a sliding latch. However, on one occasion when I pulled the camera out of my pocket, I noticed that the cover had opened on its own.
The only design issue I found was that, when the camera was in use for a while, the LCD would get slightly warm. I don't know whether this is normal for Nikon cameras but I've never noticed it on any other camera I've used.
Ergonomics and Controls
The S6000 has the typical boxy shape of most small cameras. It can be used with one hand, and it has a useful thumb grip at the rear that helps, but most people will probably want to use both hands to get the sharpest possible picture. Also, the metal front of the camera is rather slippery, which makes one-handed shooting more of a problem.
The camera's front is dominated by its lens, which retracts into the camera body when not in use. There is an auto focus assist/timer lamp next to the lens and a thin flash in the upper corner. Unfortunately, the flash is in a position where it is vulnerable to being blocked by fingers of a left hand steadying the camera. The camera's front also contains holes for the microphone.
The sides of the S6000 are pretty barren, containing only the wrist strap ring, HDMI port and speaker pinholes.
The bottom portion of the S6000 contains a metal tripod socket, located at the far end of the camera. While placing the socket in the middle is best for proper balance on the tripod, the far end location should not be a problem here considering the light weight of the camera. The bottom also contains the A/V port, which is used for connecting the USB cable, as well as the compartment for the camera's lithium-ion battery and a memory card.
I purchased my first digital camera as an upgrade from the cell phone camera. The pictures I take require options for filters, lighting and scenery (options my cell phone doesn't have). This camera has settings for automatic, manual or both. The macro setting is great, too. ISO allows for excellent shots-provided you know how to use them. The best part is the picking out how many pixels you want (3 up to 14) for the photo, and type. The option for video isn't bad, but make sure the settings are correct for the video. The sound is OK, not the best-but good for a combo type. A great starter camera for those interested in digitalphotography. The quality is excellent, overall.
minelemall Having been a huge Nikon fan since the 70's I felt secure buying this camera. I had previously tried other point and shoot Digital cameras that had the latest features of the day. This camera seems cheap to me, too light,power button is difficult to press (maybe because I am male)but I would feel okay recommending this camera for a STARTER camera for later teenager to use.
IMO, it fails on the over 55 segment.
