Good Size

One Nikon Coolpix S6100 reviewer who reviewed this digital camera thought it was compact. Expert review site Steves-Digicams.com wrote in their review “Nikon's Coolpix S6100 is a compact, 16-Megapixel digicam sporting a 7x wide Nikkor optical zoom lens, 3.0-inch Touch LCD screen, HD Movie recording”.

Good Technical Features

One Nikon Coolpix S6100 reviewer who purchased the product reckoned that it had good features. Expert review site Steves-Digicams.com said “Combining all of these great features with Nikon's auto” in their Nikon Coolpix S6100 review.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years.
