Summary: The S4 camera is very handy and convenient to use. The unique rotating lense makes it very flexible to use. I had previously had one but up graded to a camera with longer zoom but decided that I still wanted the S 4 because of the lense movement.
Excerpt: My husband and I bought this camera over a year ago for my birthday. To this day, I can get better zoom and often better pictures than friends who have much newer cameras. I love that I can flip the screen and see myself as I take the photo, because my husband and I often like to take photos of both of us... but there isn't always another person there to do the favor.
Excerpt: This camera has been a great asset to our family. It is small enough to bring in my purse, but sturdy enough I don't have to worry about it breaking in my hand. The photos are wonderful, once you get a hang of the modes, which are pretty self explanatory, the range of pictures you can create is fantastic. I love this camera and highly recommend it.
Excerpt: This camera has become my all time favorite! I have used many digital cameras, but this one is tops. I love the 10x zoom. I have used this for candids of my kids & dogs and the pictures look professional. It's small enough to fit in a pocket, or purse and yet it still packs the quality elements you would expect from the much bulkier cameras.
Summary: Hello, I have my Coolpix 4S for over 5 years. My first Nikon Coolpix 2S dropped and broke. I ordered another one. I love the lenses swivel and the 10x optical zoom. I wish that Nikon keep making it and update it. It does not do well at night. It needs light. I took thousands of pictures with this camera around the world. It is wonderful. I love it. The new cameras are great but I can't find one with the same lens feature and 10X optical zoom at the same time.
Summary: I love the Nikon S4 digital camera, but mine died (does not allow me to take pictures--all black screen). I replaced it with the same from ebay because it has an excellent zoom, one of the best for point & shoot cameras. It is easy to use and compact enough to carry in my purse. I have taken thousands of pictures with it. I love that it has a swivel lens, making awkward pictures easy to take.
Pros: I'm 66 yrs old, the swivel viewfinder works great for low angle shots without having to bend over or squat to get shots of the grandkids. The zoom is excellent, picture quality is satisfactory. Purchased in 1995.
Cons: Lost the viewfinder, no image to look at..the swivel mechanism must somehow electronicly disconnected from the body. Sent it to an authorized repair service in 2008. It gave up again. Same problem. No swivel viewfinders for me again.
