Video

Supports Full HD Video

supports Full HD video

The Nikon Coolpix S6200 supports Full HD video, which is unusual. Most of the other cameras that have been available for a similar time to this camera do not support Full HD video.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras which support Full HD video and we think the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, and the SLT-A57Y both from Sony or the Casio EX-ZR400 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1920 X 1080 Pixels Video Resolution

The Coolpix S6200 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's over two times the video resolution of a 1280 x 720 pixels digital camera, which is the most frequently found video resolution.

A 1920 x 1080 pixels maximum video resolution is in fact the best video resolution across all digital cameras that are a comparable age to this digital camera.

A 640 x 480 pixels maximum video resolution is the worst video resolution across comparable types of camera.

Average Digital Zoom

At 4 times zoom factor, the Nikon Coolpix S6200 has a relatively standard digital zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that have been around for a comparable time to this camera.

Other 4x digital zoom digital cameras currently available that you might also want to consider include the L120, or the Coolpix S6150 both from Nikon or the Canon 240 HS which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to consider the SAMSUNG DV300F (5x), or the WB30F (5x) both from Samsung or the Pentax Efina (5x) which also has a higher rating.

Average Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 10 times zoom factor, the Nikon Coolpix S6200 has a pretty average optical zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that are a similar age to this digital camera.

We compared this camera to all the other 10x optical zoom digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung 200, and the Sony DSC-H70R is also worth considering.

If this medium megapixel camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the S6600 (12x), or the S6400 (£219) (12x) both from Nikon or the Samsung WB35F (12x) which also has a higher rating.

Average Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 2.7 inches, the Coolpix S6200 has a fairly typical display diagonal compared to most of the other cameras of this age and spec.

We compared this camera to all the other 2.7" screen digital cameras and we think the S3100, and the S3100 both from Nikon or the Rollei Sportsline 99 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the Fujifilm FinePix x100 Classic Kit (2.8"), or the Canon G1 X (£419.99) (2.8") which also has a higher rating.
