Nikon Coolpix 4100

 

Nikon Coolpix 4100 Review. This is a standard point and shoot digital camera. It is aimed at anybody looking for something simple and straightforward.

"Typical standard digital camera. Decent set of features and the four megapixels and Nikon brand name may just give it the edge over other, similar cameras."

Nikon Coolpix 4100

 

Despite its ergonomics and ease of use, the Coolpix 4100's extremely slow performance and weak flash should send even casual shutterbugs looking elsewhere.

Images show good detail. Handy design with 14.5MB of internal memory. Framing assist helps the focus work better. Can use double-A alkalines or rechargeables.

Daylight images are soft around the perimeter. Graininess in shadows. Flash is weak. Slowest recycle time of any camera we've seen, and boot time is also a bit long. Shutter lags enough that you'll miss many photo opportunities.

Despite its ergonomics and ease of use, the Coolpix 4100's extremely slow performance, weak flash, and lack of included rechargeable batteries and charger mean that even casual shutterbugs should look elsewhere. The Coolpix 4200 would be better, though...

Hiway

 

Great camera. Very nice pictures. Very easy to use. Unless you are a serious photographer you do not need anything more than this camera offers. Reasonably priced only at newegg. Buy it and it wont let you down. Rest assured.

Great Cam!

 

First off, the description says 320x240 movies max 26s, but it does 640x480 (15fps) and can go until you fill up your memory card (15mins with 512 MB). After a lot of camera shopping I picked the Nikon 4100. It was almost the exact same price as the...
