Stylish design and intuitive touch-control operation over an exciting set of advanced functions for shooting and viewing

Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
Integrating elegant design and intuitive operation, Coolpix S4000 is a stylishly slim compact camera equipped with a touch screen interface that places a variety of controls at the fingertips. The Coolpix S4000's advanced functions and delightfully compact design makes picture-taking and playback more exciting.

With a spacious 3-inch 460k-dot LCD featuring Nikon's Clear Color Display and intuitive fingertip shooting control, the Coolpix S4000 brings a new dimension of fun and visual beauty to photography.

Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
The Coolpix S4000 offers advanced shooting features that fully utilize the touch screen. With Touch Shutter, users can select their subject by a single touch on the screen to adjust focus and exposure, and to automatically release the shutter. White Balance can also be adjusted by touch in Food mode by dragging a finger to move the slider marker. The Coolpix S4000 is also equipped with Subject Tracking, which automatically follows and focuses on a subject selected by touch.

Touch control also lends a new dimension of fun to viewing and retouching images. The speed and ease of fingertip scrolling through images and instant image selection makes other forms of control pale in comparison. Then there is the supplied stylus that can be used with a variety of input, retouch and image enhancement functions. Included is the Paint Function, which enables memos, drawings, colorful borders or stamps to be added directly to images.

Another important feature of the Coolpix S4000 is its high performance imaging capabilities. 12.0 effective megapixels of sharp resolution is matched to the compositional freedom of a precision 4x zoom, Nikkor lens that ably covers focal lengths from 27-108mm (35mm format equivalent). Advanced digital image-processing faithfully reproduces fine details and subtle tones, delivers quick response, and maintains image quality and clarity when taking advantage of extended light sensitivity settings as high as ISO 3200.

Nikon Coolpix S4000 Feature Highlights

EXPEED digital imaging technology
Nikon's smarter approach to digital imaging technology. From image capture to processing, Nikon's comprehensive EXPEED digital imaging concept encompasses the entire picture-taking operation. EXPEED is much more than a processing engine; it is a revolution in digital photography.

3-inch, 460k-dot TFT LCD featuring Nikon's Clear Color Display with touch screen control
Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
The 3-inch LCD featuring Clear Color Display for the Coolpix S4000 is a delight to both the eyes and the fingers. Its large size and high-resolution make picture-taking and playback more enjoyable. The screen resists fingerprints, and features anti-reflection coating for better display in bright situations.





High-Definition movie recording
Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
Entertain audiences with movies that capture the impact of the scene with HD. The Coolpix S4000 can shoot up to 1.5 hours* of HD movies (720p) with sound at 30fps.
*Recording stops automatically after 29 minutes. This figure is based on in-house testing standards and stated for recording at 25°C with a fully charged EN-EL12 battery. Actual results may vary greatly depending on factors that include differences in ambient temperature, and the amount of zoom and autofocus operations used.





Four advanced image stabilizing features* help ensure sharper results
Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
Nikon's Electronic VR image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake. Motion Detection automatically controls shutter speed and the ISO setting to compensate for subject movement as well as camera shake. ISO 3200 capability allows faster shutter speeds when shooting in low light or capturing fast-moving subjects. And, Nikon's original BSS (Best Shot Selector) function automatically shoots a series of sequential frames and saves the one with the sharpest focus.
* The camera selects and uses only the features required to optimize each image.





Intelligent automation contributes to carefree shooting
Nikon's Scene Auto Selector eliminates the need to manually select a scene mode to match the shot, and this makes it faster and easier to capture the moment in beautiful fashion. The Coolpix S4000 uses this intelligent function to analyze the subject and its surrounding settings and automatically selects the most appropriate of the following six scene modes to achieve optimal results--Portrait, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Close-up, or Backlight.





Nikon's exclusive Smart Portrait System
Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera highlights
Automatically detecting as many as 12 faces in the shot, Face-priority AF helps produce satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure. Smile Timer automatically releases the shutter when the priority subject smiles and offers the Blink Proof function, which automatically shoots two sequential frames and saves the one in which the subject's eyes are open-wide. Now featuring faster processing speed, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.

Color Name: Silver
I found the last generation of coolpix cameras to be disappointing at best. This one however has received some massive improvements.

1. It's very very fast

It is speedy in all ways possible. The shutter response time in almost instantaneous. As soon as you click the button the photo takes... give 1 additional second in poor lighting at worst. Best of all is the photo navigation. Remember those old coolpix commercials where Ashton Kutcher would flick his finger and all the photos would scroll by fast? That never worked before, but it actually does on this one. There is no lag whatsoever on photo viewing or changing settings.

2. Excellent photo quality

I was playing with this in best buy and it took very noticeably clearer photos than the other camera in the same price range... including the Canon powershots. Its actually what made me decide to buy one before I learned all the other good stuff.

3. Functionality

It doesn't allow manual exposure and aperture controls because of its size. However they give you a ton of different scene modes to play around with. Some are a little too niche to matter, but all the main ones are there. Also you can do lots of adjustments to a photo that has already been taken. These are made even easier by using the little included stylus which hangs off your camera strap. The camera has a very good feature which allows you to choose the focus of your picture simply by tapping it on the screen. Finally a purpose to using a touch screen besides flashiness.

4. Looks

Its slim and the screen is large and clear. It's very minimalistic with only 2 buttons on the back. The camera looks very traditional and minimalistic, like most of the coolpix range.

Color Name: Black
Summary: A great everyday camera. Very good quality pictures, simple to use and very stylish. Small enough that can easily fit in a shirt or pant pocket. Gives you more options in terms of color and exposure manipulations than similarly priced cameras. You can even do basic photo editing using the included stylus. It also has the cool factor of having a touch screen for all controls.

Hi-def video:
720p, 24 frames per second. Does not include an HDMI port, so movies have to be downloaded into a computer to be seen.

Picture sharing:
You get 2GB free online storage to share pictures on the web.

Hardware:
Touch screen: this is the camera's main control mechanism, and it delivers. Bright screen that can easily be seen in bright light. Large virtual buttons that make navigating the options quite easy. Ok responsiveness, not the fastest, but certainly adequate.

Flash: It is tiny. Adequate only for filling in shadows, but in a dimly lit, indoor setting you get some noise on the pictures (as the camera automatically adjusts the ISO). Indoor images tended to be well focused despite the small flash.

Battery: I took 425 pictures (no flash) without needing to recharge.

Ease of use: Once you get used to the idea that there are no buttons readily available (all buttons and commands go through the touch screen on the back) it is quite easy to use. There are some settings (such as BBS) which require a quick review of the manual to know what they are for.

Burst mode: Contrary to other cameras in this group (i.e. Canon A3100) this one includes a burst mode which allows to take up to 16 images in rapid succession.

Pre-set scene mode: Gives you the common ones (portrait, landscape, children running, etc.) and some new ones, such as fireworks and dawn. There are 16 different scenes to choose from there are as many options as higher end models.

99 of 105 people found the following review helpful By Karen L. Cesar on April 19, 2010
Color Name: Silver
I have a few cameras: Olympus DLSR, Canon Powershot S3IS, and Panasonic Lumix (compact). I've also owned Kodak digital easyshares and Pentax film camers.

I've been power shopping the last few days for a good point and shoot for an upcoming trip I'm taking to CA. I'll be taking my Olympus DSLR, put need a pocket camera for those times a DLSR isn't appropriate due to size.

Having owned a Canon Powershot S3IS and an Olympus DLSR, I'm pretty picky about image quality. So I brought home a Canon 1300 and a Nikon s4000 and compared photos in Photoshop. Hands down, Nikon s4000 won everytime. Indoor, outdoor, flash, speed, ease of use, etc.

This is an easty, point and shoot with great color and picture quality.

I'd recommend it.

The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the way you have to charge the battery. The battery has to be charged while in the camera.

Color Name: Red
It's interesting how Amazon has divided up the reviews for the Coolpix S4000 based on the color of the camera (at least as of this writing). Moving on: This is a nice little camera, it's the third in my collection of compacts, the only one with a touch screen. I have posted photos taken with it, both post-processed and straight out of the camera. My notes:

There is an issue with charging the battery. This has been mentioned in at least one other review, don't remember the color of that camera (doesn't matter). Recharging is not done as described in the quick start guide. Put the USB connector in the wall plug-in part, and plug it into your outlet, THEN attach the other end to the camera. This is the only way that the camera will be triggered to turn on and recharge. Wall first, camera second.

The guide says charging a fully discharged battery can take up to two hours and 10 minutes, or thereabouts. After three and a half hours, though the light was still blinking, I unplugged mine during its first charge. The battery icon did not show up in the display, meaning it was charged.

The default should not be for digital zoom to be turned on. Make your first menu adjustment turning that off!

Another reviewer got the best results with a setting of 3m for the images. I set mine at 8 and they seem fine; unless you are going to print very large posters, you also may want to cut back from the 12m.

Flash settings aren't sticky, so if you turned it off and then turned the camera off, the flash will be back on auto when you turn it back on.

I found the color to be good, white balance to be fairly accurate, exposure to be so-so, all in auto scene mode.
