My mother got this camera for me and my cousin for Christmas. The first month I loved this product, I thought the touch screen and the drawing features were awesome. One morning after plugging it in overnight to charge, it did not turn on. I would try to plug it in to different outlets and the charge light would turn on but not the camera. I tried to plug it in to my laptop then the on/off button and charge light turned on but not the camera. I am still trying to fix it but so far no luck. I am very disapointed with this product.
I love taking outdoor pics with this camera. It's great for the price and I love the size of it, i can just put it in purse and voila. The only down side to this camera is the fact that when you zoom in, it will blur. That's a bummer, but other than that this is a great camera. If you know what you have and know how to work with it, you should have no problem.
good thing about s4100, its touch screen, fast and can take high quality picture / movie.but sorry to say as time goes on i had this almost 2 years give or take, it shows its downside, it does not charge anymore, i did not use it often, never mis-use.like drop it or some otherway way to make it malfunction..it was a gift to me from my parents so i took great care for it..i googled and in the end landed back here nikon website and on my frequent shall i say "surfing" i noticed that its not just me that suffer the same fate about s4100 not charging, tried taking the memory off, it always blink a minute and nothing..also tried charging it with my computer, same result...sorry for the long explanation, my only advice is never leave this device uncharge for far too long,if it may in day, discharge (for a day or two,your call) it by leaving it on and turn its power saving feature "off" then charge it again..i repeat..please don't leave it for far too long uncharge..or suffer the same fate..
I had this camera since August last year, it was for my daughter, but she has barely used it. And maybe I should have tested it when I got it before I gave it to her... The camera failed after about 30-40 pictures! The lens comes out, an error message pops up to inform me that there is a "Lens error", and the lens goes back in. Unusable!
THERE ARE A LOT OF OPTIONS WHEN YOU WANT TO PURCHASE A CAMARA, BUT THERE IS JUST ONE WHEN YOU ARE FOUND OF A REAL HQ EXPERIENCE. COOLPIX S4100 IS A TERRIFIC OPTION
Both me and my wife have one purchased months apart from different stores. Hers won't hold a charge and both won't turn on most times nor won't turn off either. I turn mine on by pressing on button and simultaneously pressing the shutter button. I turn it off by releasing the battery and then pressing it back in. Nikon will not help me. Both take good pictures but are grossly faulty. no more Nikon products for me. Jim B.
the camera was very cool having the touch screen. The only problem I had was the battery lasted me only a year! Now I cant get the pictures off of the camera! This is kind of a bummer!
This camera worked great for about a year. After that it no longer focused well and 80% of my pictures were blurry. I have never had a camera stop working. I have always bought new cameras in order to upgrade what the camera was able to do. this is by far the most disappointing camera I have ever owned and it is unlikely I will buy a Nikon in the future because of the poor quality of this camera.
Camera takes great photos; Battery is junk, works well for about 3 months then will not recharge. Bought camera in April, replaced battery in Sept. by Dec. battery will no longer accept a charge.
small point and shoot great for the last second pics.
