High Quality 10x Optical Zoom-Nikkor ED Glass Lens

This combination is supported by Nikon's world renowned optical technology, with pro-quality ED glass delivering crisp, clear images while minimizing chromatic aberration. Add the 4x digital zoom and the Coolpix S4 provides an astounding total zoom of 40x.

Compact, Durable Body

The Coolpix S4 is ideal for carrying and using virtually anywhere. Compact dimensions and a light weight make it comfortable to hold in the hand and easy to carry.

Versatile Swivel Design for Creative Freedom.

Exclusive Face Priority AF

Imagine a camera smart enough to find a face in a portrait shot. Nikon's Face Priority AF function can do just that when selected through the Portrait Scene Mode.
