Nikon Coolpix P4


This small camera's antishake feature works well, though image quality overall is average.

Coolpix P4 Digital Camera


Perhaps the most notable feature of the small, lightweight Coolpix P4 is its vibration reduction mode. In our informal tests, this feature did an effective job of reducing camera shake.

Effective antishake feature Sleek design

Some controls are awkward to use Lacks manual controls

The battery life from the 1100-mAh lithium ion battery was an above-average 270 shots

This camera has effective antishake and offers a good selection of image controls. It's slow to start up, however.

Nikon Coolpix P4 - digital camera

Great image quality; lots of options.

No manual exposure control.

If you don't need Wi-Fi, the Nikon Coolpix P4 is a great alternative to the Coolpix P3.

Nikon Coolpix P4 Digital Camera Review


The Coolpix P4 is the same camera as Coolpix P3, except that it's lacking the Wi-Fi feature (IEEE 802.11b/g wireless range up to 30m). Nikon Coolpix P4 is also the first compact to include their Vibration reduction technology (image stabilisation)....

Nikon Coolpix P4


When Nikon's first two P-series cameras were launched, they were good but not very stylish. The new Nikon P3 and P4 do away with the P1 and P2's "bulky" look and feature a silky metal casing. The P3 is higher-end than the P4 surprisingly and the...

Nikon Coolpix P4 VR Digital P&S Camera


The Nikon P4 is the latest in a rather good line of Point & Shoot (P&S) models from this well known and highly regarded camera maker. Although Nikon's reputation for dominance in the professional photography business is well known, like its fiercest...

Fast F2.7-5.3 optics. Built-in Nikon Vibration Reduction (VR) is an absolute joy in situations where you can't stabilize the camera or when you're shooting at full zoom in average or poor light. Though some photos appeared slightly soft with VR, non-VR...

While we didn't actually drop the camera, we did have a couple of close calls and wished for a grippier surface in place of the smooth, brushed and polished metal body (besides which it's still cold outside during early Spring in upstate New York and...
