The black COOLPIX S6800 Digital Camera from Nikon is a compact point-and-shoot featuring a 16 Mp 1/2.3" CMOS image sensor for sharp, high-resolution shots. The camera also provides ISO sensitivity of 100-6400 to aid you in low-light environments. When the light gets too low, the built-in flash takes care of business. Capture high def 1080p/i video at various frame rates, including 25 and 30p and 50 and 60i. The Zoom-NIKKOR lens offers a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-300mm, covering wide-angle to extended telephoto perspectives.

The camera is also equipped with a 3.0", 460k-dot LCD monitor with an anti-reflective coating. Benefit from creative shooting modes, including Easy Panorama for incredibly wide coverage of vast landscapes. The autofocus system is capable of face priority and quick subject-tracking, and offers up to 99 focus areas.

Lens-shift vibration reduction counteracts camera shake for clear, blur-free shots, even in dim lighting and when shooting at the extended zoom positions. Take advantage of in-camera image editing, including D-Lighting to optimize high-contrast images in order to restore shadow and highlight details that have been lost. Save your images to SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.

With built-in Wi-Fi, take photos and watch them instantly appear on your compatible smartphone or tablet. Then share them via text, email or social networking sites. You can even use your smartphone or tablet as a remote control for the camera.

Zoom-NIKKOR Glass Lens
The 12x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-300mm, covering wide-angle to extended telephoto perspectives. There's also a 24x Dynamic Fine Zoom function, which is an enhanced digital zoom that effectively doubles your reach. Hybrid lens-shift vibration reduction counteracts camera shake for clear, blur-free shots, even in dim lighting and when shooting at longer focal lengths.

      CoolPix in the Canyon

        Comments about COOLPIX S6800 Digital Camera (White):

        I purchased the CoolPix for my most recent hiking trip through the Grand Canyon. As an inexperienced photographer, I needed a simple camera to operate that was durable and had decent battery life. I needed to be able to point and shoot literally as I took many shots from narrow trails.

        This camera exceeded my expectations and despite my novice ability, I am very pleased with the photos and videos that i brought home. The camera was certainly light enough to meet my backpack weight limitation. I found the process of switching to video to be a breeze as well. The photos i shot ranged from dramatic sweeping views of the canyon depths to extreme close ups of animals or plants. Adjusting to the Grand Canyon's harsh lighting was also fairly simple. The view screen allowed me to see what I was doing and adjust accordingly.

        I was also concerned about the heat extremes. The temp can rise to 140' F. This camera shrugged off the heat like nothing. Images were quickly loaded onto my Mac when done.

        I purchased the refurbished CoolPix with no regrets. I am very pleased with my purchase.

        Comments about COOLPIX S6800 Digital Camera (Black):

        I use it to take higher quality pictures than my camera, but it's convenient because it isn't big and bulky. I still find the picture quality is amazing, though. No problems at all so far!

        Comments about COOLPIX S6800 Digital Camera (Red):

        I purchased this to carry while backpacking because of it's light weight and Wi Fi functionality. Reading reviews of the app made it sound difficult but in fact downloading photos via WiFi is very easy and almost intuitive. Have only practiced with it so far but am looking forward to using it while hiking, uploading photos at the end of the day to my iDevice and forwarding to Flickr from there. This should allows daily backup or real time back up of your memory card photos just in case.

          My wife is going to Chile for a month to visit family and wanted a small camara to replace the one she had that was no longer functional. She wanted something small that could be carried in her purse or pocket, easy to use, and took great pictures. I surprised her on Mother's Day with the COOOLPIX S6800. Right out of the box, she was able to take some great pics with the kids, and she is looking forward to using her camera in Chile to capture speciaL moments with family.

            The camera is smaller than what I was expecting but one gets used to it.
            The controls are good and easy, and the fact that I have a Nikon D80 makes it still easier to learn.
            Very important, the lag time is the best I have experienced until now with this type of camera.

              It gets good sharp pictures and has very little shutter lag.
              So far I have not encountered any negatives.
