Nikon Coolpix 4500 review

 

Nikon Coolpix 4500

Useful swivel-lens design; clear, bright LCD; excellent macro capabilities; extensive manual control; superior image quality.

Confusing operation; no RAW file option; some features buried in menu.

The Nikon Coolpix 4500's power and versatility will appeal to photo enthusiasts who have the patience to dig for features.

Nikon's 4-megapixel, $699 Coolpix 4500 produced some of the best prints we saw in this roundup. Our outdoor shots appeared sharp and realistic, while our indoor pictures showed only slightly oversaturated colors. The camera lost just a little detail in...

Also disappointing was the Coolpix 4500's 1.5-inch LCD, which gets too dark outdoors for easy use. Nikon bundles its limited NikonView viewer software with the camera
