Nikon Coolpix 4800 review

 

Nikon Coolpix 4800

Great zoom range; fast zooming; decent electronic viewfinder performance; useful scene modes; excellent red-eye prevention.

Few manual controls; lots of visual noise in images; no manual exposure controls.

A useful wide-to-supertelephoto zoom range and a competent EVF are the key attractions of this 4-megapixel point-and-shoot compact.

Nikon Coolpix 4800

 

The 4MP Nikon Coolpix 4800 is a good camera, but falls short of being a great one. That said, it is a reasonably priced alternative to more expensive superzooms.

Powerful 8.3X optical zoom lens. Best Shot Selector feature really works.

Slow shooter for a compact camera (though average for a superzoom, which this is approaching). Flash images dull, EVF murky. Smallish LCD.

If you're new to digital photography you may wish to read the Digital Photography Glossary before diving into this article (it may help you understand some of the terms used).

Nikon CoolPix 4800 Review

 

Announced in September 2004, the Coolpix 4800 represents the latest in a long line of Nikon compact cameras that stretches all the way back to the late 1990's, and is Nikon's first budget 'super zoom' camera. Although it sits in the same range as the...

Nikon Coolpix 4800

 

What's in the Box

Compact body for an ultra zoom ; Very good photo quality (though a bit noisy) ; AF-assist lamp ; Top-notch macro ability ; Many scene modes ; LCD/EVF usable in low light ; Handy BSS feature ; Supports proprietary and "regular" batteries ; Optional...

Slow AF speeds, noticeable shutter lag, shot-to-shot delays can be annoying ; 8.3X zoom is on the low end of things in the ultra zoom market ; Aside from white balance, no manual controls ; To get to slowest shutter speeds you must give up control over...

There are a lot of choices out there in the ultra zoom market, and I think there are better cameras available than the Coolpix 4800.
