Summary: I love the way you can move the lens around for the perfect angle, shoot in color, sepia, or black & white, take video clips, and more. This camera takes wonderful photos, too. I used to have an Olympus.....but I'm thoroughly satisfied with my Nikon now! Worth every penny!
Summary: I purchased this camera about two months ago prior to a vacation. We had a Canon Powershot G1 which my husband purchased and got a lot of use out of. However, I found that too technical for me (average picture taking abilities).
Summary: I am amazed at all the things this camera can do. It has complex operation and is small and easy to handle. This is more of a professional camera. Adjusts for lighting automatically or manually, has 2 different zoom settings, one will go 40 times.
Summary: You will not regret getting this camera if you are looking for a high quality, small package digital camera with a big 10x zoom. Picture quality is very good. The video mode on this camera actually works very nicely.
Pros: Zoom, zoom, zoom. Picture quality is great. Small compact size. Very good video mode, at 15fps. Convenient to use AA batteries, or rechargeables. Good selection of scene modes. Great value for the quality.
Cons: Can't think of too many. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, it would be real nice if image stabilization was built in, especially when zooming. However, to help this there is a mode to capture the sharpest picture out of many taken in a burst.
Summary: This is my fourth Coolpix camera starting with the original 950 in 1999. They are great cameras packed with lots of features. The swivel is a great feature, allowing for stealth photos and different angles while composing the shot.
Summary: The design is awesome! I bought this camera for a relative for Christmas but I did familiarize with the camera before wrapping it. The camera is awesome. I love the swivel lens. It seems to be very sturdy. The pictures come out very clear on the lcd screen.
Summary: Well, I've had my Nikon Coolpix s4 for a couple of weeks now, and have taken pictures from stills to sporting events to boating to trying to get close-ups of quick moving pets (ferrets) and haven't been disappointed in the least.
Summary: The S4 is my second Nikon digital camera. Someone ganked my first one, a Coolpix 3100. I took that one to Costa Rica, Panama, back through Costa Rica and up into Nicaragua, taking somewhere around 3000 pictures along the way.
