Summary: I bought this camera to replace the same model that I already had, which I screwed up by forcing the wrong cable into the receptacle for an upload of pics. The price had come down considerably, considering I initially paid about $100 for one of them when new. Its a nice small camera and I find 4.0 MP to be quite adequate for my purposes.
Summary: I bought this as a backup for my first COOLPIX 4600 that I love. The price was right and I was happy to win it. The battery compartment lid was broken but I can still get it to close. That wasn't disclosed. Other than that, it's a great little camera.
Summary: I love this little camera. The one I purchased before this was broken(battery door fell off). The camera takes great pictures with good details.I purchased 2 other cameras, 2 different brands, the picture quality did not compare.
Excerpt: I have to say, I haven't found the need quite yet to move onto a new camera. My Nikon has been going strong for at least 3 years now and still makes me happy! The quality is good and the menus are easy and fun. I may have to upgrade within the next year or two, but it has been a good run indeed.
Excerpt: We purchased the Nikon 2 wks before my daughter was born. She's now 2 1/2 & I guess I should be grateful that it's lasted this long but the the shutter lens is starting to stall out. You have to turn the camera on & off a couple of times for it to open. The picture quality is fantastic & it's fairly easy to use. I just hope that the lens failing to open is not the start of a downhill slide!
Excerpt: I own a SRL Nikon and I have always been more than pleased with it. I feel the same about the coolpix4600. It has all the extra features you need, easy to transport to your computer. Also it's small, but not so small that you don't realize it's there and you drop it.
I let me grandson use it this summer - he is ten and loved it.

Excerpt: I have enjoyed my Nikon Cool Pix. I let my ten year old grandson use while we were on vacation and he took great pictures without knowing anything about the camera but where to click. We used the camera for close ups as well as regular. I have used the sports feature, where you can take the pictures faster. The portrait feature allows you to take great portraits easily.
My digital camera is sufficient for what I use it for.

Excerpt: This Nikon-COOLPIX 4600 digital camera is sufficient for taking simple pictures like for Ebay, etc. Which is what I use it for mostly. I tend to have problems with reflections from the flash on new plastic covered items and items with electronic screens, but the picture doesn't seem to come out as good when using it without the flash. I usually have to take the picture on an angle when using the automatic flash mode.
Excerpt: I am reviewing the Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital camera. Let me just start off by saying that this is really a great camera for the novice, or experienced photographer. It has an effective range of 4.0 megapixels, and a 3x optical zoom! I have found that the 4.0 megapixel range is capable of reproducing great high detail pictures, which make great 5x7 prints.
Excerpt: The camera captures great high-resolution images very light weight, and is perfectly suited for shirt pockets Not much larger than a credit card ,capable of focusing as close 1.6 inches , Operating this camera is so straightforward I doubt you'll need the manual for much more than reference, although it's definitely worth reading about how to use the Best Shot Selector function for low-light photos, and learning to use the Preset White Balance option.
