Nikon Coolpix S4000 review

 

Normally when there's a performance complaint about a touch-screen camera, it's about the responsiveness of the display. That's not true for the Nikon Coolpix S4000. Its touch controls respond well to both fingertips and the included stylus. Nikon...

Stylish ultracompact design; responsive 3-inch touch-screen display.

Inconsistent autofocus; poor low-light photos, performance.

Nikon's budget-friendly Coolpix S4000 offers up a large, responsive touch screen, but its performance will test your patience.

Nikon COOLPIX S4000 review

 

A slim, sleek camera with a few headline-grabbing features

Slim, decent-sized screen, some good features

Soft edges on images, poor touchscreen system

A flawed compact with a few interesting extras, but limited image quality and a poor touchscreen make it a below average attempt

Review of the Nikon Coolpix S4000

Lacking manual exposure modes, the Nikon COOLPIX S4000’s specs don’t match up to its competitors. The unimpressive image quality doesn't justify the expensive price point, and its only saving grace is the responsive touch screen.

Nikon Coolpix S4000

 

Review A touchscreen camera for just £120? Well, if it was a dodgy brand you'd never heard of, you might not be surprised, but no one would describe Nikon in such terms.

It doesn’t offer the best performance around, but it is highly affordable. If you fancy a compact, touchscreen camera for casual shooting, then it's well worth considering. ®

Nikon - Coolpix S4000

 

As soon as you take the Nikon Coolpix S4000 out of its box you just know that it is primarily aimed at the female market. Call us old-fashioned but it is extremely slim, elegant and lightweight ...

Although the Coolpix S4000 is not at its best in low light circumstances, this is a chic, well-constructed point ‘n' snapper that has efficient touch screen operation, some fun Touch Shooting options, HD video and good quality outdoor pictures.

Nikon Coolpix S4000

 

The Nikon Coolpix S4000 can deliver good images and a mostly satisfying touch-screen experience at a sub-$200 price point, but it requires a few compromises.

Low light performance better than similarly priced competitors. High-resolution, 3-inch 460k-dot LCD. Touch screen complemented with some physical buttons.

Soft Images. No optical or mechanical image stabilization. Resistive touch screen (some touches require hard presses). Proprietary USB port. No HDMI out.

Nikon Coolpix S4000

 

A cheap and cheerful compact touchscreen camera with a few niggling issues up its sleeve neatly summarises the Nikon Coolpix S4000.

Sleek styling ; Wide-angle lens

Noisy images at ISO 400 and above ; In-camera battery charging ; Temperamental touchscreen makes it hard to press with large fingers ; Electronic rather than optical image stabilisation

Most people don't set out to buy a touchscreen camera, so the S4000 sits in a peculiar market segment. It's a compact and attractive model so this will lure potential buyers, but image quality issues and the temperamental nature of the touchscreen...

Nikon Coolpix S4000 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S4000 is a 12-megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera with a large 3 inch touch-screen LCD and 720p High Definition movie recording capability. Equipped with a 4x, 27-108mm equivalent zoom lens, the S4000 features an innovative Touch...

The Nikon Coolpix S4000 is a pretty basic camera aimed primarily at snapshooters, but it has a few interesting tricks up its sleeve. One of these is a second-generation touchscreen interface that provides gesture support and a range of touch-based...
