    I got a 4 gb memory card free with nikon S6500, in which i could approx 30 minutes of Hd video recording. Then i purchased a 32 GB class 10 sdhc sandisk card for increasing more video memory space, but i didn't get more pics or video space. Is there any limitation for this, also i didn't find. anything in settings regarding this. And one more thing i face that most of the time it requires more than one try to focus on a subject while taking pics and also on vids. Is it an issue or normal. Kindly suggest. Thank you.

      Hello Rajkumar. Most point-and-shoot cameras like this are only designed to take short clips and will stop recording after about half an hour, that's not an issue with the memory card, the camera just isn't designed to process that much video. You should however be able to fit more images on the 32 GB card, as well as multiple 30 minute video clips, over the 4 GB card. I did note autofocus issues in my hands-on review, so it's not a setting you are missing or anything. On autofocus, the camera automatically picks a focus point, sometimes it just doesn't select the same one you had in mind! Refocusing will select a different point.

    I want to buy a remote for this camera. Can you tell me what one will work with it?

      Hi Eileen! Do you have a smartphone or tablet? With the wi-fi, you can use a phone/tablet as a remote control, and the app (I believe it's called Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility) is free! Unfortunately, I believe all of the Nikon remotes are used for DSLRs, I don't think there is one available for the S6500 outside of using the Nikon app.

    I am looking for speed in taking pictures at a NASCAR race track, yet have a good zoom in a point & shoot camera. I presently have a Nikon Coolpix S10 with a 10X optical and find it VERY slow. What are some other options in this size and price range.

      Hi Bonnie. The Canon SX280 is a nice compact with 20x zoom and can take pictures quickly, 14fps (http://www.digitalcamera-hq.com/products/canon-powershot-sx280-hs). That's currently our top pick for compact zooms, and it has the speed you need. If it's a bit too much price-wise, then you could also look at the Nikon Coolpix L620 (http://www.digitalcamera-hq.com/products/nikon-coolpix-l620).
