Catch candid moments

6x optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens

Just when they thought no one was looking…fire off a couple shots and catch your friends when they least expect it. The 6x zoom and fast autofocus make it happen. The S4300 has a wide-angle 6x optical Zoom-NIKKOR (26mm–156mm) glass lens, plus optical VR Image Stabilization to prevent your shots from coming out blurry.

Look at that!

High-resolution 3.0-inch touch screen

Keep in touch—both socially and with your camera. An intuitive graphic interface makes this one of the easiest cameras to use. The S4300 lets you navigate settings and camera modes, add effects and view photos and movies with fingertip operation. The clear and bright 3.0-inch LCD touch screen lets every one of your stills and movies come alive with 460,000-dot detail.

Quick and easy HD movies

HD (720p) movies at the touch of a button

Just touch a button and start recording movies. Memorable moments are preserved in high quality HD (720p) video with sound. Show friends the shots you got right away on the S4300’s the large 3.0-inch LCD touch screen or view your movies and photos on your HDTV or computer. Better yet, upload to the web and share with anyone.

With a European adapter will the battery of this camera charge safely, or is there a need for a voltage converter as well?

Answer: 
All Nikon Coolpix cameras have an auto switching (from 100v to 240V 50hz/60hz) battery charger that will work in most countries around the world. AC adapters have similar characteristics. Always check the specification plate on your other battery chargers or AC adapters as third party products may not support dual voltage systems. We do not suggest the use of third party battery chargers and AC adapters with Nikon equipment.
Note that the power cord included with some Nikon chargers or AC adapter is designed for 110 volt use only. A power cord suitable for the local power system should be obtained on arrival, most airport shops and computer suppliers will carry these items which are typically used for laptop computer power supply connections. Be sure that the new cord you buy fits the Nikon adapter you wish to use it with and that it is rated for the voltage in your new location. While not recommended, a simple plug adapter may be used, but caution should be taken as the cord Nikon supplies is not rated for the higher voltage and may heat or fail.
Some newer Coolpix have included an AC Adapter, like the EH-68P AC adapter, for plugging directly into a wall outlet without the use of a power cord. As with previous chargers, the correct adapter must be acquired for the country traveled to, and fitted to the Nikon AC adapter to allow proper AC connection to the wall outlet.

Why won't new S4300 recognize SDHC cards?

Have tried SanDisk 8GB (class 6) and Lexar 16 GB (class 10) cards in brand new S4300. Shows "this card cannot be used" error.

Both cards are on approved list of cards for this camera. Both cards work fine in other cameras and fully recognized by computer in card reader.

Is this a known issue? Any possible workaround to try to get camera to recognize and format these cards?

Answer: 
<<<Yes, the COOLPIX S4300 is compatible with the SDHC cards. A new memory card needs to be formatted using the camera; it cannot go thru different cameras because that will damage your memory card. Try formatting the memory card with the card reader and then with the camera. Also, verify that is not write protected.>>>

I've never heard of cards being damaged by re-use in various cameras -- requires reformatting of course, but not damaging to the cards.

At any rate, we have since tried a third SDHC card (SanDisk 4GB class 4) that also brings up the same error ("this card cannot be used").

All cards have been reformatted to FAT32 using the card reader and computer. The camera will not allow formatting of the cards -- it won't proceed to the menu beyond the "card cannot be used" error screen.

None of the cards are write-protected.

Please verify that you are using an approved memory card. Also, turn on the camera without the memory card inside or try a different USB cable.

Store rechargeable batteries at full charge. If depleted and left to sit they will not recharge. Sounds like you need a new battery.

I wanted a new camera where the time to shoot next pic was shorter and this one is just as slow. The manual says there is a continuous shoot mode but I can't find it. The spot it shows in manual doesn't show up on my screen.

Answer: 
To shoot continuously with the S4300, the camera needs to be in Auto mode. Sport scene mode also works.

(1) To Put the camera in Auto mode, turn the camera on, press the Scene mode button (middle green camera icon button), and select the first icon (Camera Icon) on the far left of the screen.

(2)To select continuous frame, press Menu, and select the Icon that is located between ISO and WB auto. There you should be able to select single frame, continuous, Best shot selector, and multishot-16
