First i thought of buying sony cybershot, but i don't know what had happened to me, i changed my mind and bought this one. Then i felt very guilty for not buying sony. But then i realized when i saw the pictures that I've taken with Nikon in my laptop. It was amazing! The clarity is superb! Even i compared these pictures with the pictures that I've taken from sony, definitely Nikon scores over sony!
Coming to features, It got 4x optical zoom where your picture clarity will not be affected and 4x digital zoom where your picture clarity will slightly less. It got auto focus, manual focus and many scene selections. It also includes smile detector.
The only thing it lacking is HD video recording and panorama, but you can create panorama by panorama maker software given with the camera.
so if you want to buy a camera around 6000 rupees, just GO FOR IT!
Nikon Not Good with its Battery....
by Gaurav Shirke on 2012-12-04
I purchased Nikon Coolpix S2500 from Flipkart.com the service of flipkart seems good but I am not at all happy with its Battery. The battery got spoiled with in a month which is against a goodwill of Nikon.
I will rather suggest to not go with Nikon......

the nikon s2500 is a good camera, gives good pics in both night and daylight pictures .i had bought the silver one from a retailer
the other night. I felt that i might have lacked in some features if compared to a higher price camera eg: sony , canon . in this level of price this the best camera which i felt . if u need a camera for trips , excursions go for it .

Bought this digicam with my 1st scholarship, 2years ago. Everything is fine, only the night time photographs are little poor in quality as compared to canon. Daylight photos are as superb as heaven, you cannot complaint abt it ever.
But guys NEVER go for a digital camera if you are not a professional photographer. Dont waste your money for fun. Why I am saying this??
These companies give product at cheap price, but the accessories, battery and service are costly as HELL. Battery (Nikon EN-EL19 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery) price for this cam is Rs 8214. ABOUT DOUBLE THE PRICE OF CAMERA !!!! http://www.flipkart.com/nikon-en-el19-rechargeable-li-ion-battery/p/itmdy5hqtn2ypgpf?pid=ACCDY5HZNNWCHUW8&
And forget about service after warrenty period. It is so costly that you will prefer not to repair it. Thats why my brothers I said "Dont buy digicams if you are not an professional"
Even if you buy the camera, dont leave the battery in the camera even for a day. The current leaches out continuously and battery will be dead in few months. It can even damage your camera's motherboard. I am suferring from both of these issues, so its my duty to aware you of their dirty business strategy.
Value for money config but not built to last

I bought my S2500 from a shopping mall in New Delhi towards the end of Dec 2011. I thought I will write about my experiences with this camera
For initial few months, results were amazing. I tried all the picture modes (except the panorama) in almost all weather conditions and was delighted by picture quality. It is an easy to use system and connects well with your computer. And when you get all of this for 5772, it sure is a bargain.
However, after continuous usage (i.e. after 6 months) I discovered that:
1. Buttons started malfunction (e.g. Flash toggle button offers menu for trashing the pic)
2. Images started turning ‘shaky’ (funnily enough, I thought it is a problem with stability of my hands. However, later, a friend who is using Nikon Coolpix L810 confirmed that even he is facing similar problems)
3. Battery backup is noticeably lower than comparable peers from other OEMs.
I went to Nikon Service centres (Noida pickup centre & Karol Bagh) and they were not able to fix it to my satisfaction (that is altogether a different story though and I will not write about it here).
Please excuse if I sounded too naïve, this was my first review :-)

I have been using this camera for last 2 years...its a nice, basic point and shoot with easy shooting modes...it is very lightweight and sleek...video quality of this camera is poor so Nikon L26 would be a better option with same price and added feature of 720p video recording...
Veeeeery Gooood Quaaality
by Nitesh Kumar on 2012-05-10
This is awesome camera in the budget range.
Anyone can click with this camera & no need to have great knowledge to operate digital camera.
In one line" Bas Camera Lao Photographer Ban Jao".
Great Video recording with HD movie button.
Separate recording button & separate button to click the photos.
The only problem is with the recording:-No pause button to hold the recording when you want to stay for a while.
Remaining are the very good.

I did a lot of homework before zeroing in on this model for its Value For Money. The offer of a watch and the purse was not available in the retail stores but was available on Flipkart. Apart from this advantage, I could play around with the billing cycle of Credit card payment as well as the EMI.
For simple point and shoot, this could be the most recommended. Night time photos still aren't as good as the high end model, but for a person who bought the last digicam ten years ago, this has been a revelation. The battery backup is amazing. At 5MP (which is 2.5 times better than a mere 2 MP resolution generally required for a good photo print), in a 4GB memory card, it saves some 2500 snaps.
As usual, the Flipkart service and delivery has been fantastic. Strongly recommended for the price band.

If you are looking for a decent digital camera with basic features and you have fixed less than 6 K as the budget than this is one of the best choices you could get.
Its very light weight, 12 mp gives good details for your shots, clarity is good in both indoor and outdoor shots.Video is not very great but watchable.
Plese make sure you set the ISO setting to 200 or preferably even below that (this model provides option to change ISO manually) as at ISOs > 200, the picture gets grains.
