  • 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. I will still use it even if it is an old model. Problems: It is a bit slow to take photos, especially when I use the flash. Also it takes ages to delete a photo.

  • 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. I like the small size--it fits perfectly in my purse.

  • 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. Luckily I bought a 4 mp camera back then, because in my opinion that is the minimum resolution a camera can have to produce good results.

Buy an extended warranty

  • Summary: Purchased the coolpix 4300 in March of 2004 and loved it. Great photos and loved the features. In mid June, just 15 months later, the zoom and focus died. Nikon wants a check for $249.00 mailed with the camera to even look at it. A local camera repair shop wants over $200.00. Cannot believe it when the camera was only 3 months post warranty. Have replaced it with a Canon A95 from Amazon for about the same price as the repair would have been but I lost some $260.00.

Good photos at a price - don't spend too much on the Coolpix 4300

  • Excerpt: "...a good piece of glass, Nikon are a lens company above all else, so they can be trusted to produce excellent lenses. The lens contributes as much, if not more, to image quality than the MP number (above a threshold). The Coolpix 4300 exposes images well and actually takes surprisingly good quality images. To illustrate this, please take a look at the totally unedited pictures I have uploaded that were taken on my holiday to Thailand. I have included ...
  • Pros: great lens = good image quality, now extremely cheap
  • Cons: now quite old, poor design, out of date features, slow startup, battery flap weak point, bulky

LA VERSATIL NIKON 4300

FOX_XX, Ciao
2 September 2006
  • Excerpt: Ya les había comentado de la Fuji A210, está Nikon llegó tiempo después, también llegaría una Olympus de la cual comentaré después. La Nikon 4300 es una cámara de 4 megapixeles, uno más que la Fuji, pero sinceramente eso no hace una gran diferencia; la verdadera diferencia está en las mayores prestaciones que ofrece, indicadas para alguien que quiere curiosear un poco más en la fotografía y no solo limitarse a apretar el botón.
  • Pros: Sus muchas prestaciones .
  • Cons: Uso de baterias .

  • Summary: Ich habe diese DigiCam nun schon seit mehreren Jahren und bin eigentlich sehr zufrieden mit ihr. Erstmal meine positiven Bemerkungen vorneweg: - Die Kamera eignet sich hervorragend als Outdoor Cam. Das Gehäuse ist schön klein und dermaßen stoß- und kratzbeständig, dass ich mich jedes mal wieder übers neue wundern muss.
  • Pros: Sehr robustes Gehäuse, sehr klein
  • Cons: schwache Naheinstellgrenze, schlechte Belichtungszeiten

Nikon 4300 - bedingt geeignet

lucyslo, Ciao
19 December 2005
  • Summary: Ich habe die Nikon 4300 nach 2-jähriger Nutzung verkauft. Trotzdem die Kamera zahlreiche schöne Aufnahmen bei guten Lichtenverhältnissen ermöglichte, wurde der Frustfaktor bei schlechten Lichtverhältnissen zunehmend grösser.... Innenaufnahmen ohne Stativ, die NICHT verwackelt sind und mittleren Ansprüchen genügen, sind fast unmöglich. Die Videofunktion OHNE Ton dürfte gleichfalls nicht mehr als zeitgemäß erachtet werden.
  • Pros: insgesamt gute Aufnahmen, handliche Kamera
  • Cons: bei ungünstigen Lichtverhältnissen/Innenaufnahmen schlechte Qualität

Pas pour les amateurs experts...

  • Summary: J'ai acheté cet appareil en tant qu'amateur... et il m'a permis d'aller plus loin dans le monde de la photographie. En fait, les trois gros défauts de l'appareil sont : la mise au point automatique n'est pas fiable pour tout ce qui est portrait... (qui est fréquent chez les appareils compact numériques) la tendance à la surexposition, mais facilement corrigeable grâce aux réglages que propose l'appareil.
  • Pros: Belles couleurs, pas comme les minoltas .  .  .
  • Cons: Appareil pour les amateurs .  .  .
