Nikon Coolpix S4000


The Coolpix S4000 (MSRP $179.95) is one of a few entry-level digital cameras offered by Nikon. Ease of use is the name of the game here, with very few bells and whistles to get in your way. Fortunately, the photo quality is pretty good too..

I purchased this camera 2 years ago and used it occasionally. A few weeks ago, when I turned on the camera, the "battery exhausted" message was displayed on the screen. I telephoned Nikon and was told to ship it to the repair center. A few days later I...

The camera has a touch screen. It is very easy for my daughter to navigate through the many different programs to decide what she wants to do: take a picture, video, etc. There are also so many different options to choose from for taking pictures:...

Perfect A+


I bought this camera for my better half as a present. She has a camera that she uses for wildlife photography and other events, but it is too bulky to carry on trips (bathing suit attire-quick trips) and the battery life on the bulky camera goes down...

Easy to Use right out of box. Exactly as described. Long Battery life. Perfect for hauling on trips. Great Price

None so far in the two weeks of owning it

Pretty good!


I really like the picture quality coming from the camera. At concerts it tends to focus in on the crowd's heads rather than the stage up front so the focus is always as clear as I'd like it unless I work hard for it. I was hoping it'd take indoor pics...

It takes gorgeous pictures, pretty easy to use w/o even reading the manual
