Summary: Stellar picture quality. I can spin in a circle and snap a flawless picture. I was impressed. The features on it are standard. Nothing spectacular, but picture quality is the real important function. A 4 out of 5 overall.
Excerpt: I bought this camera almost 3 years ago. It is a bit old now, considering they have cameras with like 8 megapixels now, but this is still a good camera. It takes great pictures that come out very clear. In low light it can be a bit fuzzy. I use it every day to take family pictures and it's never failed me. The battery flap did break, as there are two small tabs that keep it closed, but nothing else is broken.
Excerpt: I've used various compact point-and-shooters, including Sony Cybershot and a Samsung model, but this Nikon Coolpix takes by far the highest quality images. I shoot a lot on macro and in low light (dusk and dawn mostly), so imperfections in these conditions really stand out -- and this camera does a great job of minimizing them. When shooting in low lighting, however, be sure to (obviously) hold the camera static.
This camera takes good photos most of the time. It's cute too!

Excerpt: Nikon - COOLPIX 4200 Digital Camera sure lives up to its name. This camera is trendy, small and cute too. It takes photographs that are amazing. I wanted to give it 5 stars but sometimes if the lighting isn't just right the camera won't give out enough light. The flash might kick in and mess up the picture because it will give too much light and make the photos a little fuzzy, also it has a hard time taking photos of smaller objects.This camera takes amazing pictures...
Excerpt: The Nikon Cool Pix 4200 is the first digital camera I have every owned. The reason, I frist consider entering the digital age of cameras, is that I'm a e-bay seller. I found the Nikon Cool Pix 4200 an invaluably tool in my selling. The Nikon Cool Pix 4200 is a great camera for transfering quality pictures to e-bay for sales. They have a high resolution and the 3x optical zoom gives me the freedom to take great close-up of marking and labels.
Summary: the camera was sent promptly,, well packed, and arrived inexcellent condition. everything was as described by the seller.. the camera is in excellent condition' asare the accessories. this is a 5 star seller..
Summary: This is a replacement for a product that I have used to death in my travels to Europe and Japan. It's an excellent camera that I purchased for taking photos of artifacts in museums up close... and flowers... not to mention the usual scenery shots. Great lens, easy to understand settings. I do recommend that you NOT drop the camera in Trafalgar Square or spill Coke on the lens cover (the old one used to stick because of it).
Summary: I bought this camera back in 2004 and since, I have taken thousands of great pictures. It is very easy to use and the quality of the pictures is excellent. It's life has come to a sad end as my 4 and 6 year olders started getting interested in using it. But If we were back in the 2004/2005 time frame I would buy exactly the same camera again. If you are interested in this camera model just make sure you carry an extra battery as a back up.
Summary: OK, I have had this little camera for two years now and here is what I think: Pros: Good shooting Modes Quality Prints Plenty of Options for Pictures Fast on and Off Good Focus Not Battery powered (yes, this is a pro, cameras EAT batteries) Cons: View screen is too small to be very useful Video quality not great Zoom a little underpowered Menus a bit confusing (even after a couple of years) Overall: A good first camera.
Summary: I love this camera, I have owned it for about two years when it first came out. The pictures are of great quality, and have used some of the special modes and have obtained professional photography results, even though I am just an amateur. The red-eye fix is very helpful. The external metal casing has been durable and scratch resistant. My only drawback is the battery door. A little tab broke off and I have had to tape the lid to the bottom of the camera.
