  • Excerpt: The Coolpix 4600 ($200) and 5600 ($280) are Nikon's entry level point-and-shoot cameras for 2005. Both feature compact bodies, a 1.8" LCD display, in-camera redeye reduction and "D-lighting" features (more on these later), and tons of scene modes. The main difference between the two models is the resolution -- 4 Megapixels for the 4600 and 5 for the 5600 -- but there are a few other differences that I'll point out in the review.
  • Pros: Good photo quality, Compact body feels solid for the price, Tons of scene modes, Useful D-Lighting, Best Shot Selector, redeye reduction features, Good redeye test results (probably due to above), In-camera help system (though it could be better), Optional underwater case, Above average battery life
  • Cons: Poor low light focusing / no AF-assist lamp, LCD doesn't "gain up" very much in low light, Only 14MB on built-in memory, VGA movie mode isn't really VGA; only the Coolpix 5600 records sound, Sluggish flash recharge time, Manual controls would've been nice, or least let me set the ISO!, Including rechargeable batteries would've been a nice touch

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix 4600 is a compact, stylish and easy-to-use point and shoot digital camera. The scene modes are both numerous and advanced in their implementation and will really help the beginner, and the in-built help system, although limited, will also prove useful. The Nikon Coolpix 4600 has a couple of new features that aim to make the photographer's life easier, both of which work well.

  • Summary: ery good value for money especially for a Nikon - it's a real shame it doesn't record sound on videos - but if you're not interested in videos then this would make a very good digital camera.
  • Pros: Very good image quality (good colour, contrast, saturation, and detail), Quite low noise the majority of the time, Takes AA batteries, Advises you when pictures are blurry, Red-eye reduction works very well, Very good macro mode, Custom white balance, Compact
  • Cons: No sound on videos! (even though there is a microphone hole and speaker!!), Although speed is generally good, it could be a quicker, Occassionally struggles to focus in low-light, Purple Fringing / Chromatic abberations

  • Excerpt: För ungefär ett halvår sedan skrev jag min första kamerarecension någonsin. Det var en intressant utmaning och jag tog min dåvarande fickkamera Nikon Coolpix 2200 till min hjälp. Så när jag sätter händerna på den här nya Nikon-kameran känns det mesta faktiskt igen. Den ser nästan likadan ut och den känns nästan likadan att hålla i.

Röviden: Nikon Coolpix 4600 és 5600

16 March 2007
  • Summary: A Nikon néhány hete jelentette be a Coolpix sorozat két újabb modelljét, a 4 és 5 Mpixeles Coolpix 4600-at és 5600-at. A kompakt gépek nem szolgáltatásaikkal fogják meghódítani a vásárlókat, ezek a gépek nem a komolyabb, amatőr fotósoknak készültek. Hobbiból fotózóknak, turistáknak, családi emlékképeket készítőknek viszont jó választás lehet, főleg ha a kis méret is szempont...

  • Conclusion: Voor de liefhebber van de natuurgetrouwe Nikonkleuren en -helderheid, die ook graag een 4 megapixel volautomaat wil hebben, is deze Coolpix 4600 een uitstekende keuze. Zeker als je rekening houdt met zijn boterzachte adviesprijsje.
  • Pros: eenvoud, licht, prijs
  • Cons: plastic, ietsje kleurschifting
