Nikon Coolpix 4600

 

Nikon Coolpix 4600 Review. This is a typical point and shoot digital camera. It has four megapixels and a three times optical zoom lens.

Low price ; Easy to use ; Strong colours

Disappointing indoors

Much better outdoors than in the Nikon Coolpix 4600 offers decent value for money if you are looking for a standard point and shoot model.

Nikon Coolpix 4600

 

The entry-level model in Nikon's low-cost point-and-shoot line, the Coolpix 4600 has several leading-edge features that help compensate for its limited ISO range and lack of manual settings.

Compact size ; Macro-focus indicator ; Best Shot Selector ; D-lighting mode ; Blur Warning ; 16 shooting modes

Narrow ISO range ; Slow flash recovery time ; Limited manual settings ; Video recording that doesn't include audio

One bright spot is the camera's macro mode. We produced some excellent close-up shots using the macro-focus indicator. The macro icon changes from white to blue when the zoom is within the proper focus range. Note: The manual says the icon changes to...

Digital Cameras - Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications

 

Nikon's Coolpix line of consumer digicams has always been well-received, appreciated for their image quality and ease of use. The Coolpix 4600 continues that trend, offering a 4.0-megapixel CCD and nice range of preset scene modes. The Nikon Coolpix...

Nikon Coolpix 4600/5600

 

This review is different than most here at the DCRP since I'll be covering two cameras in one review. For all the product shots I used the Coolpix 4600 as the "model". For the test photos I used one or both of the cameras, and I'll make clear which one...

Good photo quality ; Compact body feels solid for the price ; Tons of scene modes ; Useful D-Lighting, Best Shot Selector, redeye reduction features ; Good redeye test results (probably due to above) ; In-camera help system (though it could be better)...

Poor low light focusing / no AF-assist lamp ; LCD doesn't "gain up" very much in low light ; Only 14MB on built-in memory ; VGA movie mode isn't really VGA; only the Coolpix 5600 records sound ; Sluggish flash recharge time ; Manual controls would've...

While both cameras are decent and earn my recommendation, here's what I'd do: skip both the 4600 and 5600 and get the Coolpix 5900 instead. While I haven't completed my review of that camera yet, I found it to be much better in many areas, most notably...
