Great image quality; lots of options.

No manual exposure control.

If you don't need Wi-Fi, the Nikon Coolpix P4 is a great alternative to the Coolpix P3.

Nikon Coolpix P4

 

I like the feel of the solid build of the Nikon Coolpix P4. A step up from their more simple models it is still relatively easy to use. Slightly on the large side to slip into a pocket it is still small enough to carry around without a problem.

Colours ; No red eye in test shot

Shutter lag

"The Nikon Coolpix P4 is a solid offering without really setting off any fireworks. It has plenty of megapixels, takes a good photo and is well built. In my tests it also does well in lowlight and minimises red eye."

This small camera's antishake feature works well, though image quality overall is average.

Perhaps the most notable feature of the small, lightweight Coolpix P4 is its vibration reduction mode. In our informal tests, this feature did an effective job of reducing camera shake.

Effective antishake feature Sleek design

Some controls are awkward to use Lacks manual controls

The battery life from the 1100-mAh lithium ion battery was an above-average 270 shots

This camera has effective antishake and offers a good selection of image controls. It's slow to start up, however.
