Excerpt: Nikon's S4300 delivers a usefully wide lens and a responsive touchscreen inside a compact, lightweight body, but are its images just as impressive? The What Digital Camera Nikon S4300 review finds...
Conclusion: However, if you value a responsive touchscreen and easy to use controls above everything else, the Nikon Coolpix S4300 will serve you well. However, if you want the best image or video quality for your money, other cameras would suit you better.
