Good for the price

  • Summary: I like it, nice zoom, no image stablizing software built in (zooms are very bouncy), the internal menu is a little non- intuitive, 10x optical zoom rocks - overall, I'm glad I purchased it.

Great photos but slow and cumbersome

  • Summary: I bought a 4 megapixel Sony DSC S90 last Christmas, and it worked fine, but I thought I could do better. Taking pictures of flats like books and magazines all day long, I thought a camera with a swivel lens design was exactly what I needed. That way I could point the lens down while keeping the LCD at eye range and not have to bend over all day.

basicly, it's a good 10x optical zoom DC

  • Summary: I like the old coolpix turnable lense desigen. And the 10x optical zoom is useful, too. But the battery life is sort and the LCD is too big to leave space for your hold finger and the hand will touch it all the time in eye level shot.

Good but not great.

  • Summary: I bought the S4 to replace a 5 MP 5x optical pentax that died. I had the S4 for about 8 weeks and took a few hundred pictures with it. Overall, I think its a good camera, but not a great one. I obviously bought it because I was intrigued with the 10x optical. There's no doubt that the optical zoom is terrific. However, its use, in my opinion, was limited due to the flash not being able to light the subjects sufficiently.

A bit disappointed...

  • Summary: I bought the Nikon Coolpix S4 mainly because of the 10x Optical Zoom. I needed a new camera because my Olympus D-40's 3x zooming capabilities were no longer working. So, got my Nikon S4 a week before my vacation to Spain and bought a 1 GB SD card. Since I'm not to familiar with my new digital camera, I took along my Olympus D-40. ADVANTAGES: ZOOM, ZOOM, ZOOM..

slow shutter lag, no image stabilization and poor moving photos

  • Summary: I was very excited about the S4 and had it for about a week. Unfortunately, I ended up returning it due to the fact that that it really didn't take better pictures than my old 2.1 megapixel Olympus. I really wanted a compact camera with good optical zoom, but as you'll find in previous posts, the zoom hindered by the lack of image stabilization. I don't think I have shakey hands, but I kept getting blurred images.
