The black Nikon COOLPIX S6500 Digital Camera is a point-and-shoot with a 16MP CMOS image sensor that enables you to capture low-light shots without a flash. When the light is just too low, the built-in flash is there to provide extra illumination. The camera also has a 3.0" LCD with HVGA resolution. The 12x zoom NIKKOR glass lens covers a wide-angle to telephoto effective focal length range of 4.5-54.0mm, equivalent to 25-300mm in 35mm format. This makes it great for group shots, close-up portraits, and everything in-between. Lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps keep every shot steady, even if your hands are not, by compensating for camera shake. Maximum ISO sensitivity is 3200.

Built-in Wi-Fi enables you to share your photos and videos quickly and easily via the Internet. Instantly send photos and videos to your compatible smartphone, tablet or other Wi-Fi-enabled device. Then, email or upload to your favorite social media or photo album sites.

Hold down the shutter button to shoot in continuous mode at up to 7fps to freeze motion without blur--ensuring you don't miss those shots from fast-action sequences. Capture Full HD 1080p video with stereo sound, as well.

Subject Tracking automatically locks onto a moving subject and keeps it in focus until you're ready to take the shot. Motion Detection helps you produce sharper results by automatically selecting a faster shutter speed and higher ISO (light sensitivity) setting to compensate for subject movement or camera shake.

The Smart Portrait System activates Face Priority AF, Skin Softening, Blink Warning and more for ideal portraits. A catalogue of 20 Scene Modes, such as Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, and Sunset, are ready to go instantly: just select the one you want and the camera will automatically use the appropriate settings to get the best shot. You can also choose Scene Auto Selector and let the camera pick the right mode for you.

3.0" LCD Monitor
Large 3.0" TFT LCD screen has a resolution of 460,000 pixels and features 5-level brightness adjustment. Coverage is 96% both horizontally and vertically while shooting, and also 96% horizontally during playback (approximately)
12x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED Glass Lens
The lens' effective focal length range is 4.5-54.0mm, equivalent to 25-300mm in 35mm format. With 12x optical zoom, you can get in close without degradation of image quality. You can use the 4x digital zoom to get even closer after that, bringing your 35mm equivalent focal length to roughly 1200mm. Aperture range is f/3.1-6.5 (electronically-controlled ND filter (-2.0 AV) insertion). The lens comprises 8 elements in 8 groups
Autofocus
Contrast-detect TTL AF with the following focus-area selections available: Auto (9-area/point automatic selection), Center, Face priority, and Subject tracking. You can also opt for Manual AF area selection, which gives you 99 selectable focus areas/points. Focus Lock is available
Built-in Flash
TTL auto flash with monitor pre-flashes
Shooting Modes
Choose from the following options and your camera is automatically ready to go with the proper settings for a given scene: Back Light, Beach, Black and White Copy, Close Up, Copy, Dusk/Dawn, Easy Panorama, Fireworks Show, Food, Landscape, Museum, Night Landscape, Portrait, Night Portrait and Pet Portrait, Party/Indoor, Snow, Sports, and Sunset. Or, choose the Scene Auto Selector to let the camera pick out the best mode for the situation. The camera even features a 3D Photography mode

    I purchased this camera for an upcoming vacation to Mexico. This is by far the best pocket, point & shoot camera I have owned. I had a Kodak which I disliked the moment I received it. The S6500 lives up to all it promises in its features. I love the fact that when you click to take a picture it is 'instant' and there is no delay in being able to take another one immediately. The sports setting works great. I have a very active dog and love being able to hold down the button to follow him around to catch those 'action' shots. I would recommend this camera to anyone who wants a high quality pocket camera. So far have not found anything I dislike, but I'm still trying out all the functions. I did buy a second battery because it is indicated that it only lasts for about 250 photos.

    I have owned many Nikons in the past, both coolpix and film cameras and I was very disappointed in the S6500. I have a two year old, two dogs and a cat, nothing in my house sits still. The shutter speed was very slow. The image you think you are getting is good but the image that is actually captured is usually not so great.

    This would be a great camera for photos of nature, tourist shots such as buildings and such or other still photography. For things that move or low light situations, it was horrible.

    I would definatly not recommend this camera to anyone with kids or grandkids as you will miss a lot of those once in a lifetime moments when you only have that one chance to capture the shot.

        This camera goes with me everywhere so I never miss a chance to take the pictures I want. Photo quality is very good. Very easy to use. The 12x optical
        zoom really brings subjects closer.

        My one complaint is that the battery seems to get exhausted fairly quickly.

              What I like most about this camera is that it has a separate button for Timer and Delete,(you don't have to look up in the menu to scroll up/down to find those buttons)and that makes it very easy and convinient for users. Hope Nikon will always keep it that way.

              Comments about COOLPIX S6500 Digital Camera (Orange):

              I go to cemeteries - take photos of markers and backgrounds. Some pics are closeups of locator numbers (inches away from the subject). Others are long lens shots of upper row columbarium niches, but most are at distances of about three feet. I can shoot at large format and then select 'small picture' for the computer transfer. This camera does all my larger Lumix FX47 can, but it fits in my shirt pocket. It charges from my car - a big plus. Mine's orange - I love it!The flash actually flashes for fill in an already well lit scene (something the FX47 often will not do). There are many little gimmicks to adjust or correct your shots AFTER the click. It's not a toy, but it plays one in your hand. If you're taking movies of a football game from atop the announcer booth, use a longer zoom. But this 12X lens is just fine for weddings and such. I have a Class 4 card in it now - fast enough for what I do. Really can't find anything I don't like except perhaps lack of a neck strap.

Picture quality is excellent and does well in many situations, weather etc. For the price and quality it would be hard to beat in it's category!

                I needed a small camera with a good zoom to use for travel. This Nikon S6500 really fit the bill. Great zoom, great photos, and really worth the price. It is simple to use and the results of the photos is outstanding. I would recommend this camera to anyone who does not want to be burdened with a SLR or fixed lens camera on a trip. Good price, Nikon quality and great performance. What more could you ask for?

                  I am a long-time B&H customer. I bought this camera for my wife, mainly to record her travel experiences. It is well-made and engineered - to be expected of Nikon. One of the main reasons I chose this model was because of the image resolution (megapixels), the very large display and ease of use. The camera is extremely compact and travels well in a shirt pocket or purse. If you purchase one, you will not be disappointed.

                    Already have a 720p from Nikon that is almost exactly the same and is a year old now. We needed another camera to keep up with the online shop. Wanted as close as we could get and this was it. This is a 1080p and the difference is phenomenal! Also, I usually abhore "bells and whistles" and especiallly paying for them but the ones on here are quite fun to play with.

                    this camera was a gift to a friend that has little experience using a camera, almost none.

                    as it turned out it is a most intuitive and friendly camera to use, she is taking pictures and videos, using the basics.

                    she intuitively figured out how to lighten/darken photos

                    she is having no trouble using the camera. it is a good choice for her

                    picture quality is very good, bright brilliant colors auto focus works well.

                    it could do better in low light, think the county fair at night..
                    still she got some very nice pictures

                    It is a functional and reasonable camera. I just do not like that fact that you need to charge a battery inside of the camera.

                    Nothing else is special about this camera. Just a standard one. I saw some Italians using the one I have, so I guess it is an OK camera.

                      I purchased this camera for an upcoming vacation to Mexico. This is by far the best pocket, point & shoot camera I have owned. I had a Kodak which I disliked the moment I received it. The S6500 lives up to all it promises in its features. I love the fact that when you click to take a picture it is 'instant' and there is no delay in being able to take another one immediately. The sports setting works great. I have a very active dog and love being able to hold down the button to follow him around to catch those 'action' shots. I would recommend this camera to anyone who wants a high quality pocket camera. So far have not found anything I dislike, but I'm still trying out all the functions. I did buy a second battery because it is indicated that it only lasts for about 250 photos.

                            Bought this camera for an upcoming trip to Europe as well as photographing grandkids. Just getting used to it but takes great pics just using auto setting. Some pics are a little too bright so I have adjusted for that...other than that no problems.

                            I use this camera mostly at our RC flying field. It's easier to carry then my DSLR. The pictures look great. The pictures look just as sharp as My DSLR. Don't expect to get action shots with this camera especially fast moving children. All point and shoot cameras have that dreaded time delay built in, meaning what you see is not what you get. So remember if you want to stop action get a DSLR.

                            I really like the camera as a always take with camera.
