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

Whenever I take a video over a minute or so, the camera says the file did not save or no file can be recognized or something. Can anyone tell me how to fix that, because time-limited videos aren't that fun.

Answer: 
I tried one of the approved cards (Lexar 8Gig) and had the same problem. Worked for the first video (about 3 minutes in length) then when I went to do the next video, I received the same "can't read" message. Very frustrated with this camera for video.

Answer: 
You are probably using a memory card with too low of a speed classification. On the SanDisk SD Card, there is a number inside a "C". If this is not 4 or more, the write speed of the card is too slow.

Answer: 
If the light is too dim, the shutter speed will be very slow, and any camera motion will blur the photo. Also, make sure that you are not "punching" the shutter button. Press slowly, and gently.

Answer: 
make sure you have the right adjustments for exposure, like:
white balance in auto mode
ISO sensitivity auto
AF area mode auto.
(all of this if you're novice) and when taking a shoot make sure you press at half the shutter to focus and when the focus area goes green press fully the shutter. Another thing will help you is:
AF assist - auto
vibration reduction - on
motion detection - auto

Answer: 
Make sure you are using SanDisk cards, and double check the speed class of the SD Cards you use. I was unaware that they had such a thing, but the Coolpix 400 requires a card with a speed class of 4 or higher. On the face of the card, right below the red part of the label, there is a number enclosed in a "C". This indicates the speed class.

Answer: 
How many photos were you trying to import? I use a mac as well, and it can take sometime for iPhoto to read all the photos on the camera. I had 800 photos on my camera, and it took almost a minute for my camera/photos to appear in iPhoto.
Try closing iPhoto, then connecting your camera. iPhoto should automatically open and read the photos and then give you an option to import the photos.

I am aware of pressing the photo button halfway to allow for focus, but in doing this I cannot get the image to become in focus. I have tried to reset the camera's settings, but this has not worked. The image on the touch screen remains blurry whether it is zoomed in or out.

Answer: 
too small of a card, settings for pics set too high. On mine with a 4GB card I can only get 250 pics at max resoulution. Recommend 2-4 GB card for this camera, unless you want to constantly download photos.

Answer: 
Pictures taken are recorded as images files. The size of the files and with it the number of images that can be recorded, depends on the size and quality of the images. Before shooting, choose an image mode according to how you plan to use the picture. See page # 48 of the User’s Manual.

Ex. If you have the Image Mode set to 12M you can only record 5 pictures in the internal memory. If you set it for 3M you can record 46 pictures. Internal memory is approximate 45MB.
