Nikon Coolpix S4100 Preview


In between the S6100 and the S3100 also announced today, Nikon's COOLPIX S4100 offers a touch screen interface on a 3-inch TFT LCD, ideal for showing off recent photographs or playing back HD video clips. The S4100 offers 14-Megapixel resolution and...

Nikon S4100


Few steps forward and several steps back from last year's Budget Point & Shoot of the Year

Excellent color accuracy; Strong resolution scores

Mediocre noise performance; Lackluster image stabilization

We were happy to see Nikon continue its strong Coolpix tradition with the S4100 (MSRP $179.95). It improves on its S4000 predecessor with some added features and a new lens, but several areas of performance were a disappointment.

Not Impressed


It's been yrs since I upgraded from my old 5 mp camera. I kinda thought with 2-4 yrs point & click would be better. I push the auto focus to lock in then click. Am I missing something? I got equal quality w/ my old 3 & 5 mp fuji and cannon. I am...

Point & click

Way too many blurry pics

Nice for the Price


Very impressed with the flash. Even works great outside at night. Was little suprised at the size, was hoping it would be a little larger. However the screensize is great especially for older eyes.

Great little camera


The touch screen works great, however if you have big fingers like me you may have a little bit of a hard time.

Quick Charge, Great Pictures, nice Features ; I got this for an anniversary gift for my wife, since it was a little hard to pull out the DSLR for everyday pictures of the kids. We had it charged and ready to go in 30 minutes. The pictures are great,...

Nikon S4100


I am very disappointed with this camera. I thought that Nikon would make a decent camera (I have a Nikon SLR and it works very well). I have returned it.

Landscape pictures are good. Plenty of automatic settings to make it easy for the non tech type person

I was unable to take sharp indoor photos. I tried every setting there is. Photos of people were the worst, absolutely could not get a sharp picture

good for someone just pointing and shooting, not much past.


it might be that i have a high expectation, as all i have owned is SLRs and bridge cameras, but at least its not for me. for a person that doesn't take serious pictures and doesn't even know what ISO is, or what an exposure setting is, its PERFECT....

nice crisp images, pet portrait mode which is nice. touch screen is something different, sure gets the attention of the ones who just want a cool camera

does not have a manual mode. i was VERY disappointed to find this out in the field, if i would have known that before buying, i would have picked something else

Packs a big bank for a small camera


The Nikon Coolpix S4100 is pretty powerful for such a small camera. I can stow it just about anywhere. Put it in your pocket or in your breast shirt pocket so it is handy. Good for taking pictures of shy relatives too since it is always at the ready...
