Camera Review #2

When a 5x zoom isn't enough and a 10x zoom is too much (either in size or price), there are the likes of the 7x zoom Nikon Coolpix S6000. Combined with its 28mm-equivalent wide-angle starting point, you get an extra bit of flexibility in a pocketable body that does make a difference, especially when there's just no physical way to get closer. Add in this camera's relatively speedy shooting performance and you have a decent, well-priced compact camera for shooting from the sidelines. It's still a compact point-and-shoot, though, so despite its high resolution and Nikkor ED glass lens, the photos are best enjoyed at smaller sizes as prints or for online sharing with little to no cropping or enlarging.

Here are the specs:
Price: $249.95
Weight: 5.5 ounces
Megapixels: 14 !!!!
LCD size: 2.7 inch LCD screen
Lens (zoom, aperture, focal length) : 7x, f3.7-5.6, 28-196mm
Highest resolution size: 4,320x3,240 pixels
Image stabilization type: Optical and Digital
Battery type: Li ion rechargeable
Storage media: SD/SDHC memory cards

Camera grade: 9/10

-Super compact and fun little point and shoot, with 14 megapixels, which is 2 more megapixels than my Nikon D90!!
