About Nikon S4300

The Nikon Coolpix S4300 Digital Camera (Black) has everything you need in a compact camera, all beautifully contained in a stylish little pocket-sized package less than 1" thick and weighing in at only 5 oz (139 g). Start with a serious 16MP CCD sensor for great image quality, add a sharp 6x wide-angle Nikkor 26-156mm (equivalent in 35mm format) lens and a brilliant 3" touch screen LCD display with 460K-dot resolution--you can focus by just touching a point on the screen.

The S4300 isn't just another pretty face, either--it's got one-touch 720p HD video, optical VR image stabilization to capture crisp, sharp images and reduce blurry pictures, sensitivity up to 3200 ISO that lets you keep shooting even when it gets dark, Subject Tracking Autofocus that locks onto a moving subject to keep it in focus at all times and a Macro mode that produces fantastic pictures by focusing as close as 2" from the lens.

The Smart Portrait System makes every person you photograph look good, by automatically capturing a smile, warning you when someone blinks in a picture, automatically correcting red-eye and smoothing out wrinkles and blemishes on faces. There are 20 scene modes, including Scene Auto Selector which automatically optimizes the camera settings for best results.

No Hype, Just Fact! -- Nice camera,

By

from Ft. Myers, Florida  -  Photo Enthusiast

My wife has been using an older camera that she has had for years and never complained. I decided to get her something more up to date and when I bought it for her she just loved it. The main thing she first noticed was how much larger the LCD was. She loves the color and the size of her new camera. She seems to always have it with her, in a pocket or her purse and uses it all of the time.

Wish I'd waited a week

By

Wow. Nikon strikes again! I had a coolpix 4000 & LOVED IT! It was lost around Nov. of '10. It was the most simple camera to use and got the best pix! My husband replaced it with a brand that shall remain unmentioned @ the same price point, with similar features.NO COMPARISON!The camera was only used for extreme 'missions'! I finally broke down & bought myself the COOLPIX 4300 for Mother's Day. I JUST LOVE IT!!! It has more features than my 'good-ole 4000' had & is EXTREMELY USER FRIENDLY! I adore this camera & will recommend it to all who ask. Thank you to Nikon & Adorama for making my day! See my pix on facebook!
