Excerpt: I bought this secondhand as budget was a constraint. However, I'm pleased with this so far. It has taken gorgeous photos for such a little camera. Problems: I dont' like lens caps, so this is something I find particularly annoying.
Excerpt: It is an excellent camara for an amateur. I have had it since december 03, and after 3.5 years I am changing to a smaller one Canon A540. I am very happy with the Nikon, the quality of the photos is excellent, it has several features and it really made a very good work.
Excerpt: Nice pics for simple things, but not for professional. I've had this camera for a few years and have been pretty happy with it. But it doesn't take professional pictures. If you want portraits, it doesn't blur the background, so it makes pictures look very busy.
Excerpt: I have had this camera since it was released. I went out and got a Canon SD800IS because it was pocket-sized and had over 7M MP. The Canon was/is great, but this Nikon holds its own. I took a couple of pics to compare (macro), and the detail of the Nikon was awesome.
Excerpt: The camera was bought in Hong Kong in the summer of 2003. At that time it had really high specifications, and it produced (and still produces) very good pictures. It has been used regularly as the family's only digital ever since and has been very reliable.
Excerpt: <font color=yellow><b>Wonderful camera. </b></font> Takes very impressive photos compared to all the other 4mp cameras I have seen. In fact a couple buddies of mine bought 5mp cameras (both sony's) a year after mine and yet we all agree the Nikon takes superior photos.
Excerpt: My second Cool pix. Bought it because 1st one died at 18000 exposures but had good close up. This one has poor close up, had power switch die at 10,000 exposures. Nikon says warranty not valid if sand in system but they sell in Arizona where sand is a fact of life.
Excerpt: I have taken many many thousands of photos over the two years I have owned the 4300. The camera has performed faultlessly during this time. It is a little slow by the standards of today's models, though shooting in continuous mode and using a Sandisk Ultra II card makes a noticeable difference.
Excerpt: This camera has endured over 2 years use in a R&D department for an aftermarket automotive manufacturer. Dust, debris, dropping onto the floor haven't caused any degradation in clarity. We are planning to cycle this camera to back-up status and buy another Coolpix as our primary.
