Love this camera!
I love this camera! All you need to do is point and shoot. Several other cameras that I've owned take several seconds to actually take a picture and a lot of times the scene you wanted to take was gone. With the Coolpix you just point and click and you have a great picture. I haven't messed with a lot of the features but the zoom in and out is right at your fingertip where you take the picture, so it's very convenient. I would recommend this camera to anyone that wants good quality pictures without all the fancy, hard to use features.

This camera is everything I was looking for and then some. The pictures are clear and bright. It eliminates sun glare from the pictures and there is no haze, which was the problem with my former camera from a different company. I would definitely recommend buying this camera.

Love it! So many features!
so far so good. needed a new small camera for my purse for my graduation b/c our old one couldn't keep a charge--did not want to risk not having it for the ceremony.
Hubby has bought the cheaper one for his office and decided to spend the extra $ for this one. Has some many features my prof Canon doesn't even have the features this one has. haven't printed anything yet BUT the pic on the screen is awesome. Like the touch screen.
What I don't like so far is how sensitive it is. While remaining on, while holding it it kept taking pics. Also, depending where you left off while viewing pics, when you take a new pic that's where the pic will be stored, doesn't automatically go to the end of the "roll", so when going back to look at pics it looks like I didn't take it so I have to scroll thru to find it--little frustrating.
also, wish it had a function/button that you could hit to set it back to auto default. hubby keeps putting it on panorama while playing so when I take a pic it is in that mode, and I lose the pic b/c I can't change it back fast enough.
otherwise, love it so far!

Good photos, small size, & great price!
This camera is very affordable and easy to use. The pictures aren't as sharp as I expected, but are still clear. The touch screen is very responsive, and the overall design is attractive, sleek, and modern. If you're just a casual photographer and not looking for an expensive camera, I would suggest this!

What a joy to use!
I really enjoy using this camera. It's easy to use and takes great pics. My only complaint is the video/record button is too easy to bump when taking pics.

Awesome Camera for the Price!!!
i loved this camera!!! it works very good in low light, it takes very good portraits and i haven't tried anything else with it but i'm going to shoot some pics out by the lake and see how it does for landscape and nature shots!!! even though i would rather have a d-5100 this one works very well for a compact camera for its price!!!!!

Excellent camera for dummies
I have fought buying a digital camera for years. My son had one and it was so difficult to operate. I researched digtal cameras and came across this one. It is sooooo easy to use and takes excellent pictures. I have taken many already and the closeups are awesome. the video feature is great too!

I recently bought a Nikon s4300 at Target where i got the package, and I LOVE IT! Its very easy to use and takes amazing pictures even though it isnt a big chunky camera. It's great for those who want to take great pictures without paying 1000$+ for a camera!

Super Pocket Camera
Purchased this Camera on sale, to replace my S5100, it developed a screen problem. Larger Sensor, great touch screen, excellent zoom. I know this will replace my favourite Pocket Camera.

Easy for teenagers to use.
This camera is so uncomplicated that I let my teenager use it to record his songs while he is singing. The only downside is that after 10 months of use my battery ran out and I had to buy a new one.

I bought this camera so I will be able to take video's and put them onto youtube, and still be able to take pictures. I didn'y want to spend about $200 for a camcorder but I don't think this camera has a pause button. If it does I can't seem to find it.

Love the camera and it came with it's own case, but it only lasted 1 month and had to be replaced.
I originally bought this camera on 5/11/12 and it worked great at first, but the night of 6/8/12, it stopped working and wouldn't turn on. I tried charging it, but that didn't work either. I took it back to Staples and they replaced it for me on 6/16/12. So far, no problems and then I did buy the warranty for 2yrs. I am hoping there will be no more problems with it, as I really do love the camera.

Cãmera com problema. (Não liga).
Comprei a câmera fazem 8 meses, tem excelente qualidade de imagem e vídeo.
Como sugestão solicito um software para melhorar o tempo entre uma foto e outra, pois a minha demora muito.
Já enviei a minha para assistência técnica na semana passada, pois não liga mais, estou aguardando retorno.

Good but not great.
This is a nice, small camera with a fair number of features. For the price, it is a good beginners camera and it does well as a camera to travel with because of its size. The drawbacks are : limited manual settings, very slow shutter speed. You will miss pictures if you don't "anticipate" them.
Additionally, the lens cover is very flimsy. Once it stops working, it must go in for repair. I will say that Nikon service was efficient. Our camera was repaired and back to us within 2 weeks --- better than new.

The Camera is very nice and takes great shops but its very unreliable. Last year i took it on the Disney Cruise in Florida. I turned it on. It was on Full power. Then it just turned off. It wouldnt turn again and wouldnt charge. It is Still broken and i wasnt able to take any pix at the concert of my dreams!

The camera works as advertised. Pleased so far, except for the included software. I needed a new camera which this fulfills and needed software to opn RAW files. Thought I had the best of both worlds here, but the software is usless. Only the third party panoramic software works as advertised. Removed the Nicon stuff and found a Freeware program that loaded right up and does everything I want. Good camera - Lousey software!

Best Settings to Use?
I am no camera expert. I received the camera as a early gift on my way to vacation to NYC before Christmas. Had lots of trouble getting pictures to turn out normal. Most were blurry. I have tried of some the settings which has helped a little. I don't know if it is me or my camera. I thought since it is a point and shoot I shouldn't have to mess with the settings too much. The video function works fine.
Any suggestion on what I might be doing wrong? (My finger is not in front of the lens, in case you were wondering).
December 30, 2012
I was really excited to buy this camera and start taking pics of our growing baby. I don't understand what I am doing wrong but most of my pictures turn out blurry. I've tried many different settings but I can't seem to have success. I thought it would be user friendly, but I am just getting frustrated and sad because I'm missing some memorable moments. My next move is to seek advice from the website.

Problems with this camera
When I first purchased this camera in 2012, I loved it, as it was so easy to use. However, after a few months, the battery would not charge. I purchased a new battery, and things were ok for a while, then that battery would not charge. I have exchanged the battery at Batteries Plus a number of times, and each time, it quits working. Finally after almost 2 years, I got the batteries to last. I took pictures at Christmas, 2014, and everything was fine. I got ready to take a picture yesterday, and the monitor is blank. I can pull up my old pictures, but can see nothing in the monitor. Flash works, but it does not take a picture. I will not purchase another one of these cameras.

Had high hopes
The pictures that I took with this camera came out very nice. However, the delay between pictures is long. You cannot take a quick succession of pictures. Also, I think the attachment of the zoom to the shutter caused overuse because after only a year an a half it popped off. To repair it cost $100, when a new camera is a little more than that. It just struck me as absurd. I guess there's not a thing meant to last.

I got this camera (Nikon Coolpix S4300) for my birthday, and for the first three months it was great; but then it started to act really funny. I went to charge it and it kept telling me "battery exhausted" even after I had charged it. I went to return the camera and the return policy had recently changed so I was unable to return it. They told me that I could send the product in to California or New York for repair, but I didn't want to go through that. I decided that maybe I should just go purchase a new battery, so I did and it worked fine, for about a month, then it started acting up again, the settings reset themselves and the picture quality became poor, and once again after charging it for a couple hours, it said "battery exhausted". So in all I was able to enjoy this camera a total of four months altogether. I am really upset by this because Nikon is known to have good camera but this one is not one of them.

The camera does not pursue clarity. The pictures that I took came out grainy. Also, I feel that in low light, the photo quality is very poor. I returned this camera and purchased a Nikon D3000, the difference between the pictures were distinct. The Nikon D3000 is a wonderful camera, it always captures every detail of every photo, unlike the Coolpix S4300.
August 13, 2012
I was not very pleased with this camera. All of my pictures came out grainy. I am not a professional, but I can distinct the difference between clear, precise images. Also, when I take a picture with flash, I feel that it over dominates the other object- Thus all I see is a bright light.

Tempo de disparo
A máquina em si é boa, mas o tempo de uma foto para a outra é lento. Isso eu não gostei
