Good size, good photos. I really like this camera's size and photo quality. It's so portable I sometimes forget I have it with me (my cell phone's bigger!). I DO NOT like how unintuitive it is to operate. If I simply want to check on battery status, I have to totally re-familiarize myself with the entire camera. In fact, I just bought an S-3500 to replace it because the 3500 is as simple as I am! November 16, 2013
very good camera. I bought my Nikon back in November 2010. It was great. My pictures were flawless and I am absolutely in love with my camera. But it has suddenly stopped working. I know its not the battery, so it has to be the camera. And I am really sad!! I can't seem to find another one anywhere. I would definitely recommend this camera. It's so easy to use. October 25, 2013
me encanta el touch screen Es compacta, ligera, buenas tomas, funciones básicas y sencilas, el touch screen es muy práctico para las tomas y visualización de las mismas, un buen lente para tomas simples o cercanas, con un zoom limitado pero suficiente para este tipo de compactas. Tiene un pequeño defecto con respecto al "touch", se convierte en un pequeño problema cuando quieres proyectar tus tomas directamente en la TV (con cable audio - vídeo EG- CP14), debido a que la pantalla de la cámara se pone "negra" y tienes que calcular intuitivamente en donde estaría el botón "avanzar" o "retroceder", porque si no lo haces bien, te hace iniciar la proyección desde el principio, por lo que los espectadores se empiezan a incomodar con su respectivo Ooohh!!!! otra vez?, pero eso no lo haces todos los días. La opción de "grabar vídeo" no tiene "pausa", con lo que tienes que hacer varias tomas de un mismo evento. Otro defecto que he encontrado, es que siento que la batería me dura muy poco. ah, en los Nikkon que he tenido, el lente se atasca fácilmente con pequeñas partículas. December 22, 2012
Move on I expected more from a Nikon. Love the size and the touch screen. No problems in daylight, but I cannot take pictures in dim lighting or at night! So frustrating! December 18, 2011
Great Camera, few problems I got this camera S4000, for last Christmas. Abolsutely loved it! Great, sharp photos and nice videos. Nice features (ex- sunset, snow, fireworks, ocean, portrait, up-close). Really helped me out with creating music videos, and excellent sports setting. Took many softball in-actions pictures for my team..worked well for that. Takes very nice up-close photos of flowers, nature, etc. Amazing portaits (full body pictures). Although I ran into a few problems. Sometimes I would just be starting a video and the screen would flash up saying "Card could not be read". And then it would stop. Other people have had that problem. Tried many different cards, same problem. Other than that, GREAT camera! I dropped it once and then lens smashed in, inoperative. Getting a new one! Repair is expensive. I recommend for anybody! Thin for vacations and traveling. November 25, 2011

Camera charges fine, but when in fash mode, the red light blinks for a while, then the battery exhaused screen comes on, and camera shuts off. I can turn it back on immediately, use it in non flash mode and I can take dozens if not hundreds of pictures.

I use the auto focus method (press down half way, focus, take the picture) and it takes a lot of time for the picture to save and re-set to take another picture. Why is this? Could it be the memory card? I have a 2G HP card. Is it a setting i have set? I have re-set the camera to the default settings. Nothing seems to speed up the recovery time.

Look at the class rating of the SD card the higher the class the faster the write speed. Suggest you get a class 10 SDHC card, 8gb or greater if you are going to use the movie mode.

Apparently my coolpix s4000 is setup to create separate folders for pictures, not sure if its a date thing or some other reason but this is tedious when it comes time to offload the pictures to my computer. After a period of time when I am ready to store pics to my pc I go into DCIM folder and I see usually a series of folders labeled 100NIKON, 101NIKON, 102NIKON, etc. I tried looking around settings for a reason this is occuring but found nothing. I would like there to be just one folder if possible. Any help would be appreciated.

My Coolpix S4000 would not power on. I thought it was a battery issue, but a voltmeter showed the battery is properly charged.

After some Googling, I found a suggestion of pushing power & shutter button at the same time and the camera powered up! I had to set the date and time again. I also have to push power & shutter together to power down, but it will come on and take photos. After setting the date and time once, I haven't had to do that again.

Any ideas what caused this? Can I reset the camera so that I just need to push the one button to power up/down? Thanks.

If you have tried charging the battery and it doesn't hold a charge than you need a new battery.

When I plug my camera into any computer, I hear the sound as if the camera were to connect, the window pops up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen that says "Downloading device driver software" and within seconds the message changes to "Device driver software not downloaded" and I hear the sound of the USB disconnecting. This repeats over and over. I tried to plug it in to my laptop, which has the device driver software already downloaded, to see if perhaps it would make a difference. I was able to access my camera for about 30 seconds before my computer no longer recognized the camera. I cannot get the camera to turn on when it isn't plugged in.
