Summary: I had a previous Nikon camera that I used as a claims adjuster and it worked every time. Took decent pictures, this one just doesn't work. I cannot keep the thing charged or it just doesn't turn on at all. Wish I never would of bought it...
Summary: I bought this camera because we are about to go on vacation and I wanted something other than my phone to take pictures. I opened it and tried to charge it and the battery won't charge at all. The indication light that is supposed to come on isn't. Now I don't know what to do because we are going on vacation and I don't have time to return it and get a new one fast enough. I am so disappointed.
Summary: So- I have had the camera awhile and noticed that it was kind of slow, but figured that's okay because it's cheap. I JUST now turned the camera on without a memory card and found out that there were pictures taken BEFORE I bought the camera.. Guess what I saw- many pictures of around what I believe to be an Office Depot store- and a picture of the other DISPLAY MODEL cameras.
Summary: Pictures were ok, but compare to other brands of cameras I own (that are still working after many years of use by me and my now 7 years old son)This camera lasted 1 year of random use!!!! Never again buying another NIKON product!!!
Summary: I bought this camera a year ago, and i gave it to my mom as a gift, but what a surprise.. the flash didnt work; i live out of usa, so i couldnt return it, i took it to a special center for revision and it cost me almost the same that the camera. Too bad, not recomended.
Summary: I purchased this camera just prior to going out of country for 6 months. I took 10 photos in the USA than 20 more in Mexico and from that 10th day I had it the lense would not extend outward to permit taking pictures. Camera shops in Mexico and then in the USA on my return home after 6 months had no idea how to fix it. It was quite a disappointment to take a new camera for an adventure and it failed near instantly.
Summary: I bought this camera to take pictures of my children.....but the shutter lag is so bad that I barely catch smiles and/or them even looking at the camera! I even tried taking it out with friends for my birthday and it felt like we had to hold smiles for a full 10 seconds before the picture actually snapped! it's not a bad price but not worth the trouble...I put it up and went back to using my old camera!
Parts falling off. DO NOT BUY! Not my favorite little camera - I have broken one before.

Summary: UPDATE to Review: s4300 piece of junk as well. The thumb hold keeps falling off - NIKON doesn't seem to have their parts group prepared to handle the junk. Should have learned not to get a second one. BUYER BEWARE!! S4100 with LCD Screen LEAK. No broken glass. Apparently pushing on the screen as it is a touchscreen ruined it. due to Have to be super careful with the LCD back.
