Still a great camera

  • Summary: This is still a great camera. Nikon pioneered some features that others have followed. I like to use of add-on lenses for the CoolPix; too bad this feature has not been continued.

Nikon 4500 4.0 Megapixel

  • Summary: Great camera. I upgraded from the Coolpix950. Excellent photo quality with low noise due to noise reduction mechanism in the camera. The macro mode is unsurpassed by other camera companies and a wealth of manual features. But all the manual features are no user frendly and you almost have to constantly refer to the manual.

People are still buying this?

  • Summary: I got this cam in thailand two years ago and while it's been a real workhorse for me, i'm surprised to see it's still selling around the web. Well, maybe it's that good a camera. I give it four stars; here's why: the quality of the build is good but for the following things: focus motor connector came loose once and rubber strip on front is now super-glued. i am a journalist, so i beat the hell outta these things.

Much better than the predecessor

Matt, Amazon
14 October 2003
  • Summary: I didn't care much for the Coolpix 995 when it was out. The 4500 (which is the 995's replacement) is much better in my opinion. The body size has been greatly reduced. Unfortunately that also resulted in a reduction in screen size, but I guess that was unavoidable. Excellent image quality, excellent macro mode (3/4 inch!), good zoom.

Great camera - if you can live with some flaws

Peter Horn, Amazon
14 October 2003
  • Summary: I own a Coolpix 4500, before I had a 950 and a 995. I've been using them all a lot. Coolpix 4500 Pros: - Very good overall picture quality if you use the following settings: 1600 x 1200 resolution (downsampling algorithm does a great job - I usually shoot at 2 mp when travelling to save space without losing much quality); medium quality jpeg; sharpening +1 - Sturdy all metal swivel design body allows you all sorts of shots that would be impossible to take with other...

Coolpix 4500 Vs. 995

Keith H., Amazon
14 October 2003
  • Summary: Overall the 4500 is a solid camera with many advantages over the 995, however, the 995 hasd a few features that are missing or better than the 4500. Pros of the 4500: Scene modes-it is much quicker (less battery drain) to set the scene than it was with the 995. User interface-while the LCD on top is gone it is still pretty easy to tell what options you have on for the mode you are in.

Super digicam, but no substitute for a film SLR

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 September 2003
  • Summary: I purchased this camera about a year ago, and have really liked it -- for what it is designed for. It is when you try to stretch it a bit, like I did, to get it to replace a beloved old Olympus OM-10 SLR I have had for 20+ years, you really start to understand the limitations of the current crop of digicams (to separate them from the still-too-expensive-for-my budget digital SLRs).

Good, But Flawed.

Foxy Foxy "Vincenzo", Amazon
15 June 2003
  • Summary: I spent a year using and abusing the 990 coolpix in severe conditions on the job and fell in love with it inspite of some flaws (Needed higher resolution, chromatic aberations were pretty nasty and the control/ menu system was written for geeks). The 995 came out and I passed on it as I thought it should have had that higher resolution. When the 4500 appeared, it seemed like it was everything I wanted.
