Summary: I researched cameras and found fairly good reviews for this one, but I soon discovered that I would have been better off with my old 1 MP Kodak. The flash is weak and I have to lighten nearly all indoor photos. As others have mentioned, this camera has a long recycle time between photos and you do miss a lot of photos. I also have a problem with the quality of the photos; a lot of them are slightly blurry and I have to use my photo editing software to sharpen them.
Summary: I am not the only one. After using this camera for maybe 6 months, and being annoyed by the delay between pictures, now the darn thing won't even power up! I've replaced battery after battery, and wondered, are ALL the batteries in my house dead (taken from remotes, CD players, MP3 players, you name it)? But now I see, it's some sort of defect. Is there any remedy? I didn't purchase a warranty. Even if I had it would have expired.
Summary: I should have read the online reviews before buying this camera. The flash lag time is really a problem and I also found that the range of the flash wasn't great enough. I couldn't take pictures without the flash, either, because the shakey hand symbol always came on. Most of the pictures I took with this camera were blurry too. I never had any of these problems with my old Fuji Finepix F40. That camera was only a 2 megapixel but the pictures were always sharp.
Summary: I have had this camera for less than 1 year and now it won't work anymore and comes up with the message "Battery Exhausted" even when brand new batteries are installed. I checked a few other sites and was surprised to find numerous comments about this very problem and the lack of any sort of customer support from Nikon on what is clearly a defective product. My suggestion is "Don't buy this product".
Summary: This may be true of all cheap digital cameras, so Nikon may not be the only culprit. My previous camera was a Casio QV 3500EX, on paper an inferior camera with less mega pixels etc, etc. (yes i fell for the sales patter for the know it all; the spec sheet) I also come from a standard photography background. My Casio died last week and i needed to replace it, i was pleasantly surprised that digital cameras had come down in price since i bought it, but now i realise why.
Summary: Tengo una y no me ha salido nada buena, primero una de las pilas que venian con la camara no funcionaba y tube que comprar otras por que estaba de viaje y tenia que hacer fotos, y luego de repente y sin avisar no se encendia la camara. Luego me a costado mucho contactar con el servicio tecnico en Madrid.
Summary: Vor diesem geweblichen Verkäufer, der weder örtlich noch telefonisch erreichbar ist, kann nur gewarnt werden. Er hat eine "Nikon Coolpix 4600 Neu + OVP" mit Artikelbeschreibung "Coolpix 4600" angeboten. Tatsächlich hatte der Verkäufer die Artikelbeschreibung der "Coolpix 5600" zur Grundlage seines Angebots gemacht.Die Kamera war auch nicht originalverpakt und höchstwahrscheinlich auch nicht neu. Nachdem ich festgestellt hatte, dass die Funktionen lt.
