Introduction

Nikon's Coolpix S6300 occupies a vague space somewhere in the middle of the company's diverse entry-level point and shoot lineup. It's below cameras like the S9300 and S6400, which offer longer zoom ranges, better screens, or added gadgets like in-camera GPS. But it's above truly bottom of the barrel models like the S3300 thanks to its 1080P video recording and still-decent 10x zoom range. Like most bargain digital compacts, it provides a no-frills shooting experience with minimal manual control.

The Coolpix S6300 is available now, in black, silver, blue, and red, for a MSRP of $199.95.
