Careful with those cameras, are old and usually broken
8 December 2011
Summary: I have some problems with this camera. The seller said it is working properly but I found out that he is only working on auto, because I can't change anything about the pictures: iso, focus...... Only thing I can change is image quality.
Summary: Just after the one year warranty and I turn on the camera to hear loud clicking noises. Have to take the battery out to shut off. "SYSTEM ERROR". $200 to repair from Nikon - oh and they won't tell me what's wrong with it. I'm not the only one. My friend had the same problem, but he had it repaired in greece for $100. I've read that a number of people have had the same problem, actually some on Amazon reviews, where are they now? Way to go Nikon.
Two major dissatisfications for Nikon Coolpix 4500

Summary: My first complaint/advice is about the "purported" rebates offered by Nikon. After sending in much documentation, they still refused after several letters to respond and reimburse with the promised rebate. They have a laundry checklist of reason used to "stiff" customers and not pay. They appear to be unconcerned with their own corporate image or past customer loyalty.
