Summary: I bought this camera ten years ago and loved it....but the door to battery broke and it cost more than the camera to fix. I tossed the camera but kept accessories. Decided to look on ebay for replacement after my new Canon point and shoot broke in less than a year. The Nikon is easy to hold and operate, it's familiar and I grab it when I don't feel like lugging my SLR around.
Excellent Product Good for the money paid. Not to expensive.

Summary: I had a Nikon Coolpix 4300 before and ahd purchased extra batteries and Compaq Flash cards when I dropped in Vegas. It always took great pictures. Wanted a replacement. Sometimes one of the batteries would die on me. They would charge pretty fast. This is wh I decided to look on ebay for a replacement. Even though I am looking to buy a Digital SLR Camera in the future. I can evenntually give this camera to my children to take on field trips.
A great little camera (Nikon Coolpix E4300 asa 4300)

Summary: I think it's a great little camera, even after SIX plus years. Working experience *CONS*: Low light is the pits; the flash is almost too bright, especially for animals and children and especially in low light (these cuties never hold perfectly still - GRAIN, Motion BLURS and EYES CLOSED). The movie feature is cute, very small, not the greatest quality any more.
Summary: I'm sure when this camera was released back around 2003 it was all the rave. I bought this camera back in July 2003 for $350 from Beach Camera. Alot of major annoyances with this camera such as the lens cap- you have to remember to take it off before you turn the camera on or else you get a message saying to take the cap off and restart the camera. The menu is tedious and cumbersome to work with. The manual settings take too much time. The start up time lags.
Summary: I bought this camera with money my wife gave me for my birthday in 2001. At the time I wanted a great digital camera that had the look and feel of a more expensive model but with really good imaging capabilities. I looked at every review for months. I poured over product manuals and would goto the camera store 3 times a week to hold different cameras to see what I liked. Then I bought the 4300 when I found an awesome deal. Well I still like this camera very much.
Summary: This camera is designed for photographers of all levels, from a simple point and shoot to a complicated moving object and with just one button upload to the internet you will be on your way to greatness.
Summary: I've had this camera for almost six years now and I have to say it's pretty durable. BUT the image display screen is painfully small (especially compared to some of the newer cameras) and everything this camera does takes FOREVER! It takes about 10-20 seconds between each shot to "think" and don't even ATTEMPT to delete pictures because that will take you up to a full minute for each picture!
