My wife, who needed to be taught to frame, zoom and shoot and who has not snapped a shutter since she retired her KODAK INSTAMATIC, wanted a camera that was small,light weight, attractive and friendly with hi resoultion.
After testing and returning the Nikon L26, I reseached many cameras. We also have a Nikon S8100 that is great. We were going to get the S8200 and give her the 8100 but both of these were too much camera for her, plus it cost over $100 more.
We settled on the S4100 because it not only met her needs but had the extra features that I like in a back up camera. It does the job very well. She took it to Carson City, Nevada to visit our Governor. If you want to see the results go to
www.MsSeniorNyeCounty.com and from the Home Page go to the CARSON CITY TRIP.
I shoot both video and portraits on a prosumer level for the organization and am impressed with both these point and shoot digitals.
She is pleased with the S4100. By the way, she still has the INSTAMATIC as well as her BROWNIE HAWKEYE with a half used roll of film.
I purchased two other similar digital cameras for my wife within the last 6 months. She hated both of them. None of them were good enough for her. But I hit the jackpot when I bought this Nikon Coolpix S4100. It is small, simple for her to use, and takes great pictures. It has a lot of automated features which allows her to just point and click and every picture is postcard quality. I was able to purchase it through eBay for $50.00 cheaper than in a big box store plus I received a lens cleaning kit, tripod, and an extra battery. You will be hard-pressed to find a better camera for the price. You can't go wrong with this camera.
Camera is small & easy to use, price was best of all. It is
everything I expected -I will update it later on. The digital camera is new for me,have been using my original Minolta & slow to change to a digital camera. This Nikon is exactly right for a new begining w/digital.
Bought the camera for business use & it is extremely easy to use & the quality of pictures is awesome.
I bought this camera because I had borrowed an earlier Nikon version from a friend for vacation pictures. I didn't really want to buy my own for holiday pictures, as I have 3 kids to buy for, and didn't want to spend any money on myself! When I saw this newer one on ebay for about half the retail price, I had to get it. The picture quality is wonderful, and it is easy to use, even for someone as electronically challenged as Me! I highly recommend the product, and the seller, who was extremely prompt. No regrets or problems whatsoever.
The camera is very easy to use, and picks up the light that is available and makes the image more visible. I haven't been able to test it more as the battery was worn and I wasn't able to re-charge it as it did not come with the usb cable to do so. I am waiting for receipt of another one that I ordered before I can further test the images. It's very lightweight and portable and user-friendly.
The Nikon camera is really a great little camera and it was at a great price. It is nice since you can you the touchscreen too. It takes great pictures and they are true to color. Even if the lighting in the room seems dark, it still takes the pictures wth the perfect color. I plan on using it to display my clothes soon on the Chicboutiqueshoppe on Ebay. I want my customers to see the garments actual colors for their purchases. I like the variety of features it has and it is easy to use which is always a plus for me.
I am thrilled with this camera. I wanted a very small camera that would take exceptional close up photos. It does. It is easy to switch modes. The quick start guide is pretty informative. I havent used all the features yet but I expect they are as good as the ones I have used (no flash, high ISO, etc...).
It does have a glass nikon quality lens, AWESOME!
It is tiny...YEA!
I will take it camping & fishing & sking, AND put it in my pocket...YEA!
If it breaks I will buy another for $100...AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!!!
It came with a lot of accessories, and they are new in package...AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!!!
The Nikon Coolpix S4100 is an average camera. It takes amazing video, it is great quality for a handheld camera, and the light settings allows for you to take photos in the dark or in great light contrast. It does not do as well taking videos in dim light. Zoom is good, but pictures can become somewhat grainy and blurry if the zoom is close to being maxxed.
For a handheld camera, it is quite good, however changing the settings and becoming accustomed to the camera is more difficult than other cameras. It's been 4 months since I bought the camera, and I still have trouble with the camera at times.
The camera is on the Approved list for IStopMotion, but despite hours of trying, it will not connect to IStopMotion. If you are going to buy the camera for use with an animation program, do not buy this camera.
For a camera of its type it is great. Simple to use and always have with me. I have another camera with lots of manual overide but it is too bulky to carry around. Maybe more post work but at least I have the picture. Also I could not pass up the value.
This camera is great, everyone fell in love with the picture quality of the camera. It took me a while to get the hang of the settings but I got it. I love the touch screen, it makes things easier. At first I was disappointed because I thought it didn't have features to edit pictures such as black and white or sepia, but then I found them and they're even better than I thought, you can add frames and stamps and even write on the pictures themselves. This camera is amazing!
