Nikon COOLPIX S4300 Reviews

CNET reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S4300 and writes;
“The S4300 comes close to being the perfect novice’s camera. Anyone could pick it up and use it and be fairly sure that they’d get a decent set of results. The lack of manual controls makes it unthreatening, and Nikon has done an excellent job of taking away all responsibility for working out the best combination of aperture and shutter speed.”

Techradar reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S4300 and writes;
“The Nikon Coolpix S4300 is an enjoyable camera to use, with a responsive touchscreen and an attractive, petite body. White balance, metering and autofocus are all reliable, and the camera features effective vibration reduction. There is also a raft of automatic modes that make taking photos very simple.”

I love this camera

Great Camera
“I had a previous Nikon and loved it. Still have it. I needed a camera with wider optics and this works well, due to the type of photos I take.” – By HJopeful

Little Coolpix “plumb”works for me
“Have had it about five months. Took it and an older Canon that is a few steps up technologically on a road triptrip – New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Arizona. Used the Canon’s viewfinder in the sun. Coolpix worked great taking video and snapshots from a moving car. No problems.” – By Rick
