    Nikon 26217B reviews

    Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera (Plum) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 133.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is fantastic! I am very happy with this camera! I highly recommend this camera for a great point and shoot. It takes great pictures and has so many features to it. You can do so many things to the pictures before you even move them to the computer. Great buy! I bought this camera for our everyday family use and I love it. It is small and can fit in my pocket. The instruction booklet was very informative and I would buy this camera again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter camera, perfect for travel I purchased this camera for my 14 year old for her birthday. The package was perfect in every way - fun color camera and adorable leather-style camera case with matching camera strap that could easily slip in a little purse (all of which is perfect from a teen point of view) but for me, a professional photographer, this camera gave her a Nikon quality product with powerful, easy to use features and all at a beyond belief price. The package I purchased included the camera, camera case, and a 4MG card for an excellent price. I'm even considering getting one to keep in my purse so I can have a camera with me all the time or times when I can't carry by big Nikon and want a snapshot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Synonym : bang for your buck Coolpix S4000 is so full of functionality and performance that it can have 'Value for your money' or 'bang for your buck' as its synonym in Thesaurus. The zoom is smooth and the wide-angle lens are so good for portraits. Although it is not great in capturing colors in naturally lit environment the sharpness is perfect. The lens is stable and had less shake errors when in full zoom. Iso400 was ok but it started to have more noise in 800. I would definitely recommend it for starters looking for point and shoot camera with such a good performance and a price tag that won't change much in your bank balance, I would say go and buy the camera when you are done reading this review.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lense Errors This camera was great with taking pictures but I replaced my other Nikon coolpix camera with the S4000 due to a lense error, my friend also had the same problem with the older camera and so we both replaced them with this camera only to find out these both had lense errors as well only weeks after buying them.I take very good care of all my products, phone, iPod, camera etc. so when I experienced having to replace my camera twice after the same problem I'm not too thrilled. I won't be buying from Nikon any longer and I don't recommend the brand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pictures for a small package! Great little pocket camera to have for the on the go individual with great resolution. Used in everyday situations to shoot family and friends and to use as a small compact instead of hauling my huge DSLR. Right out of the box the camera is extremely easy to use. No need to read manuals as it's quite easy to follow the on-screen menus. Flash is quite powerful for such a little camera and it produces crisp photos. The video feature needs some improvement but is overlooked as a trade-off for HD video. No stabilization feature so you need to have a steady hand when shooting video. Included software makes transferring to PC a breeze even a child can do it. Overall a great buy for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from He loves it! Bought this as a gift for a client who is a tattoo artist. He showed me some photos of his work afterward and, for the price, this camera is a bit of a beast. (I mean that in the best possible way.) We were both pleasantly surprised by how sophisticated this camera was for the price! This guy used to take some of the worst photos I've ever seen! But this camera takes all of the work out of casual photography. He said the camera assists in framing the photos and finding the focal points. It's also very small, so he can keep it in his pocket. (I got him a case as well so the camera is protected in his pocket). I thought the touch screen display was a nice feature. No more big hands fumbling with tiny buttons!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolpix Has Come a Long Way Bought this for my daughter for her 12th Birthday. I have a lot of Nikon pro gear and bought my wife a S610 but was that that impressed with it. This camera is definitely a huge step forward for Nikon. Simple to use, very fast, sharp, great color. I wasn't sure about the touch screen but it works great and my daughter loves it. That's the bottom line.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I recently dropped my old Nikon point and shoot and it was going to cost $100 to fix it, so I decided to research and start looking for a new camera instead. I love the features of this camera. HD video, love the touch screen, it takes great and high quality photos, easy to use. The added bonus: it uses the same media, battery and USB connection as my old Nikon A80!! B&H offered a very competitive price,... YAY! Just in time for vacation! I've bought several products from B&H and have been VERY satisfied with every piece of gear I've gotten. Keep up the great work!
