Nikon Coolpix S6 review

I didn't buy this camera, but did consider it (I like Nikons). It's slim, a decent size, but doesn't sit in the hand well. Really needs 2 hands to reduce risk of shake. Controls are all the in the wrong spot.
Great screen.
Printed 3 shots in store (Fuji F30, Leica C-Lux 1, S6) and the Leica was the best - best color rendition and exposure. Nikon was 2nd, Fuji far behind.

I'd suggest looking at Fuji F30 or Canon SD700 instead. Or step up to Nikon P4 - feels MUCH better. That's what I'm going to buy.
Alternatively step down to Coolpix S3 which is available for not much more than half the S6's price at the moment.
