Nikon Coolpix 4500 Digital Camera Camera

 

Nikon's 4-megapixel, $699 Coolpix 4500 produced some of the best prints we saw in this roundup. Our outdoor shots appeared sharp and realistic, while our indoor pictures showed only slightly oversaturated colors. The camera lost just a little detail in...

Also disappointing was the Coolpix 4500's 1.5-inch LCD, which gets too dark outdoors for easy use. Nikon bundles its limited NikonView viewer software with the camera

The Coolpix 4500 offers 16 preset scene modes and excels at taking macro shots.

Nikon Coolpix 4500 Digital Camera (Nikon-25503)

 

The midsize and midprice Coolpix 4500 is ideal for novice and advanced photographers looking to share a camera, or for beginners seeking a model they can grow into.

Nikon Coolpix 4500 review

 

Nikon Coolpix 4500

Useful swivel-lens design; clear, bright LCD; excellent macro capabilities; extensive manual control; superior image quality.

Confusing operation; no RAW file option; some features buried in menu.

The Nikon Coolpix 4500's power and versatility will appeal to photo enthusiasts who have the patience to dig for features.

Nikon Coolpix 4500 Review

 

The new Coolpix 4500 was announced on May 29th, 2002 as part of a trio of new Coolpix digital cameras from Nikon. It is the step up in resolution and features for the now distinctive split-bodied Coolpix design. The 4500 carries on from the 995...

Slow startup time (even worse if zoom set to 'last position') Lens barrel distortion at wide angle and some pincushion distortion at telephoto Longer shutter release LAG than we would expect at this level Average continuous shooting, 1.25 fps up to 5...

nikon coolpix 4500

 

The Coolpix 4500 is Nikon's first digital camera to feature a 4.0 effective megapixel CCD combined with a 4x Optical (38-155mm in 35mm photography) Zoom-Nikkor lens. Built on the award winning swivel-lens body design of the Coolpix 995, the Coolpix...

As with all cameras -- image quality is the thing and the Coolpix 4500 will not let you down in that respect. The camera can be operated like an automatic point and shoot or you can dabble with its multitude of drive, exposure, focus and capture features.

Nikon CoolPix 4500 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

Nikon is one of the few companies that you can say truly needs no introduction in the world of photography. Their name has been identified with professional and high-end amateur photography for a good 5 decades now, and they've been very successful at...

Like the rest of Nikon's Coolpix line, the Coolpix 4500 performed very well in the macro category, capturing a tiny minimum area of just just 0.84 x 0.63 inches (21.2 x 15.9 millimeters), one of the best macro areas I've seen. Resolution was very high,...

Nikon Coolpix 4500

 

The Coolpix 4500 is the latest in an almost legendary line of Nikon digital cameras. It uses the same swiveling lens design that has been with us since the days of the Coolpix 900. Through the years, the innards of the Coolpix have changed, but not the...

Swiveling, 4X optical zoom lens ; Tons of manual controls ; Very good photo quality ; Stunning macro ability ; Support for many add-on lenses + external flash ; CompactFlash Type II slot - Microdrive works fine ; Nice playback mode

AF and shutter lag higher than it should be ; Sometimes blows out highlights in photos ; LCD is too small; limited viewing angle ; No AF illuminator ; Included 16MB memory card way too small ; Movie mode could be better ; Flimsy plastic door on CF slot

After producing some just so-so digital cameras (Coolpix 2500 and 5000), Nikon has once again returned to making top notch cameras with the Coolpix 4500 (not to mention the 5700). The CP4500 produces excellent photos, has a full suite of manual...
