Nikon COOLPIX S6200
16 megapixel CCD sensor; 10x optical zoom with 25mm wide-angle; 720p HD video with stereo sound; 2.7-inch LCD screen; Optical image stabilization; Lithium-ion battery
On the lower-end of Nikon's travel zoom S-series, the S6200 packs a very good 25-250mm 10x optical zoom into a relatively compact package. You miss out on the higher resolution screen, 1080p HD video, and CMOS sensor of the S8200, but the cost savings might just be worth it. Do note that a replacement for the S6200, the S6300, has been announced. The newer model has a CMOS sensor and shoots 1080p video.
