The Nikon CoolPix S6800 is an ultra-compact and incredibly easy to use
digicam. Built for anyone looking to just point-n-shoot, the camera goes
anywhere and is always ready to shoot both stills and video. Read more in our Full Conclusion.
Nikon's new Coolpix S6800 was one of five new Coolpix models launched at CES 2014. While it may not have the zoom reach of the $80-more-expensive L830, the S6800 boasts many of the same great features. These include a 16-megapixel backside illuminated CMOS image sensor (great for shooting in low light scenarios), Full 1080p HD Video Recording, a 3.0-inch LCD display, and 18 Scene Modes to easily adjust the S6800 for different shooting conditions.
What makes the S6800 a bargain is that, in addition to a 12x optical zoom (digitally extendable to 24x), it includes Target Finding AF (autofocus), Advance Glamour Retouch in-camera editing features, 4 all new functions, and built-in Wi-Fi. With Wi-Fi and the free Nikon Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility app running on a compatible smartphone or tablet device, it's easy to share your photos instantly.
