Perfect.....

This was a replacement for one that was damaged. I like it because it is easy to carry wherever I go. I have a D200 and a D70 that are simply too cumbersome to lug around. The only down side is when using one of the many features of the S6000, certain other functions must be disabled. For instance, when using the self timer you must disable the anti vibration function.Most importantly was the Adorama Experience.

This was easy to buy, from a knowledgable individual, who was helpful, polite and honest. My other camera (which I was replacing) was at Nikon Corporation for repair for over a month. Adorama's price was over $50 less than what Nikon wanted to rebuild the old camera. [...]I cannot express how impressive it was to deal with a Company that does exactly what they say they will do.BRAVO!This is an AWESOME company!

Not as Good as....

By

from Olympia, WA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

attractive, light weight, dependable. However, not as good as my Nikon Coolpix 5100. Not as sharp, and lacks ability to control shutter, aperature,and focus.I find that my pictures are consistently less sharp. Unfortunately, the 5100 died after about 10000 photos

Love the Nikon Coolpix S6000 refurb

By

from Brainerd, MN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Much better camera and imaging than my Sony WST 230. So far all it was advertised to be. This was a refurbished unit from Adorama. Would do it again.
