Nikon Coolpix 4200

 

The Nikon Coolpix 4200 has enough handy features to satisfy novices and some enthusiasts.

Slick looks. Wide variety of settings in well-organized menus. 12MB internal memory. Razor-sharp images. Good focusing in low light. Can remove red eye from images in-camera.

Minor color-accuracy problems. Daylight shots underexposed. No aperture or shutter priority modes. No full manual mode. Mediocre boot and recycle times.

awesome camera

 

I got this camera from my boyfriend and I love it. It's small and light enough that I can fit it into my purse, yet not too small that I'll lose it...It takes great pics and has a lot of cool features. Highly recommend!

Not Impressed

 

This camera was okay, took decent pictures and i liked how it was so compact, however it didn't like to be zoomed in apparently. Also, the dial got changed too easily and was a pain. If the camera doesn't zoom well, why have a zoom feature? We had to ...

Bad lens, zooming problems, dial too loose
