The Nikon Coolpix S6000 is aimed at being as versatile as possible with its long 7x zoom with wideangle, plus 14.2 megapixel resolution and fast startup.

14.2 Megapixels
The Coolpix S6000 is capable of producing images of stunning quality with its 14.2 megapixel sensor. You can create images of up to poster size and still have excellent sharpness.

Extraslim with 7x Wide Zoom
The inclusion of such a long zoom with wideangle capability is all the more impressive when you take into account how slim the profile of the camera is. The equivalent in 35mm terms is a 28-196mm lens.

Great for Low Light and Moving Subjects
This is an area in which the Nikon Coolpix S6000 excels. Firstly there is Optical Image Stabilisation (or Lens Shift VR as Nikon refers to it). Also, when taking fast moving subjects or shooting in low light, the ISO sensitivity can be increased to ISO 3200. Not at some reduced resolution though as you can still make use of all 14.2 million pixels. Motion Detection and Subject Tracking are two additional modes that help keep moving subjects free of shake and in focus.

HD Movies
The Coolpix S6000 is capable of recording 720p HD movies with stereo sound.

Additional Features

0.75sec Startup
Advanced Flash Control – effective balancing with ambient light
Scene Auto Selector – chooses the most appropriate scene type automatically

These Nikon compacts don't always do well in reviews but they are well made and can stand a few knocks. Shame the case is leather.

Hell of a deal so scorching hot but the camera doesn't review that well. Shame.. as Id otherwise snap it up for that price along with the extras.

14mp small sensor is not good

really ? oO

Canon PowerShot SX30
Nikon S1100
Samsung ST80
...

all of them have CCD 1/2.3 inch sensors and 14MP .It's actually fairly large sensor .

Its not a very large sensor its 0.435 inches

My Casio 10mp Z1080 has 1/1.18" 0.556 inches so you are cramming 4 million pixels on a smaller sensor

Why do you think some of the new Canons and Sony's have 10mp pixels nowadays.

Sure, the high MPs are just marketing rubbish but larger sensor does not immediately make the camera good.

Have a look at reviews of e.g.Canon PowerShot SX30 and you will see that CCD 1/2.3 inch is large enough to obtain very good quality pictures.This Nikon is a very decent camera too, especially take the brand and the price

A large sensor definitely helps.

That's for sure,it just does not guarantee anything yet. Otherwise we would have a lot of high end Panascanix cameras flying off the shelves

That's not necessarily the truth, £145-150+ is the usual price and without the Nikon accessories

It never will guarantee anything because the lens quality is important too, but it's a significant piece in the puzzle.

Yes of course lens matters too, but what im saying is less mega pixels and larger sensor gives less noisy shots and better in low light situations

Hmm, it's not bad but image quality isnt up with the best and the zoom doesnt work when doing videos...

With such an awesome camera making pedigree it's weird that Nikon never seems to get it right with their compacts.

That's not a general rule.I have an old Nikon Coolpix 5200 - fantastic little camera, very high quality finish, after 6 years of heavy usage still going strong and looks new, just rechargeable batteries had to be replaced (2 x £3.5, get over 100 photos on each) .Often used when DSLR is not handy.
I have not worked in store or service so did not see that many cameras, but I have never seen Nikon that was poorly made.Unfortunately, compact size will always mean compromise

I have found that in the last couple of years at least Nikon have dropped the ball in the compact arena. Same with Sony too.

Canon and Panasonic head the pack, with Fuji still pretty good too.
