First it turns heads ... then it shoots their pictures.
s4100 color lineup

With its rounded body and sleek lines, the ultra-light COOLPIX S4100 sells itself on looks alone. It comes in four cool colors, plum, black, red and silver, which makes it a favorite choice of the stylish and design conscious. But while this camera is full of personality, it's also packed with versatile Nikon features that make it an ideal everyday camera. Slip the COOLPIX S4100 into your purse or coat pocket. At 0.8 inches thin and a feather weight 4.7 ounces, you'll hardly know it's there, and yet it's ready to shoot high quality stills or HD movies at a party, on the beach, or at a ballgame. You live life in high gear. You deserve a camera that keeps up with you every step of the way.

High Quality, High Resolution Touch Display.

If you love fingertip operation with a cool, intuitive graphic interface, wait 'til you start taking photos with the COOLPIX S4100. The camera's clear, bright, three-inch Touch LCD monitor comes alive with 460,000-dot detail. In shooting mode, Touch Shutter lets you choose a focus point simply by touching any part of the frame. There's also Touch AF/AE (Auto Focus/Auto Exposure) for convenient auto focus by touch. Plus, with Subject Tracking, you can touch any subject on the display and the COOLPIX S4100 will follow it through the frame.

The COOLPIX S4100 may be stylish, slim and compact, but it also has plenty of power. Nikon has equipped it with a 14.0-megapixel CCD sensor that assures exceptional image quality. It's paired with a 5x wide-angle optical Zoom-NIKKOR® glass lens that offers you excellent compositional freedom. Nikon's true glass lens boasts a focal length from 26-130mm, a range that zooms in for your best portrait shots and has a wide angle to cover beautiful landscapes. The COOLPIX S4100 even has 20 Scene Modes, including Scene Auto Selector, so you can leave it to this intelligent camera to automatically determine what type of photo you're taking and adjust the setting to assure a flawless photo every time. And just when you think this camera is maxed out with features, its movie recording capabilities capture all the action in 720p HD.

Hassle-free Nikon technology produces great shots every time.

Imagine an affordable, compact camera that's also smart enough to automatically correct for camera shake, take a series of shots and save only the sharpest ones, or intuitively adjust shutter speed when you're focused on moving objects. The remarkable COOLPIX S4100 does all that and much more. It's equipped with a four-way Electronic VR Image Stabilization system that minimizes blurred images. Its Motion Detection identifies moving objects and adjusts both shutter speed and ISO to create optimal settings to achieve the best picture. With the COOLPIX S4100, Nikon has thought of everything. When you're shooting in low-light, you're sure to get optimum results with high ISO speeds up to 3200. For both still images and movies that are sharp and clear, count on EXPEED C2 to heighten fine detail and image quality—and do it all with exceptional processing speed.

I purchased this camera as a replacement while on vacation. After less than a month it would not charge. When I contacted customer support I was told I needed a new battery because most likely I had overcharged the camera and should not leave it charging more that 2 hours. I purchased a new battery and it worked ok for 2 months. I removed the memory card to upload photos to my computer and now the Nikon S4100 won't power up again. Not work the trouble to get yet another battery. The Casio Exilm I lost was much, much better.

I have been really happy with this camera. The first one I ordered stopped charging correctly after the first day, but I was able to send it back for a replacement, and my new one has been working great. Sure, the night pictures aren't the best, but you're not going to find much better in a camera in this price range.
The camera turns on very fast which I like, however if you're using flash sometimes you have to wait a bit before you can take the next picture. I also had some trouble with blurry pictures at first, but I discovered the non-hand shake mode and once it was turned on my camera took great pictures.
I really like the simplicity of the buttons, especially the video record button. While it takes a couple seconds to actually start recording, it's fun to just be able to hit the record button to start a video. Some people had problems with the touch screen, but I think it works great. My phone is also a touch screen so I may just be used to how to use them, but I think it is very responsive. Plus, I think the plum color of the actual camera looks really good.
While the camera does have a few time-to-shoot issues (which is why I give it a 4 and not a 5), all in all, I think it's a great, fun camera for this price range.

Color Name: Plum Verified Purchase
I love my new camera! I haven't finished reading the user manual because it has so many features. I went to Universal Orlando and everyone was impressed with not only how easy it was to use the camera but how beautiful the colors were. The zoom feature is great. The best part is how large the screen is. It is so slim and I love the stylus that comes with the camera so you can see your pics. The only problem I had was that I didn't purchase a memory card so after 4 pics, I had no memory left and had to purchase a memory card at the park (ouch at the price!!) I would highly recommend this camera to everyone who is looking for an affordable yet high quality, beautiful pics!!

I bought the S4100 3 weeks ago to take on a vacation to europe. It looked small and had a touch screen and the picture quality was ok. I wasn't looking for anything special.

Out of the box the touchscreen seemed unresponsive but once again not a deal breaker. I had a small camera with a solid zoom and decent MegaPixel quality

However, I stand here 3 weeks and day later in Rome with a useless hunk of junk.

First it started with the lens errors. Then the battery became exhausted even though it was showing that I had a full battery. I took pristine care of this camera and made sure that I never charged it too long or let it drop anywhere.

Now the battery won't charge and the camera won't turn on. Absolute lemon and if you don't believe me read through some of these other reviews and you will notice a theme.

Save yourself the time and trouble.

Color Name: Plum
Purchased this camera for my wife. She used it one time and the second time she wanted to use it the screen turned cloudy and then went completely black

Sent it back to Nikon under warranty and it was returned saying that it was a moisture issue and that it was not covered but they would gladly repair it for $100

I informed them that the camera was never in a moist enviroment that would cause an issue

and stated that if moisture caused an issue under normal use than that would be a defect

I have a Canon PowerShot that is over 7 years old and has been subjected to rain, snow, beaches,ocean travel, and tropical climates and have never had an issue.

The Nikon Coolpix was used at a wedding and then attempted to take photos in San Antonio TX on a cloudy day... Hardly extream moisture enviroments that would cause damage to a supposedly high quality camera

In my opinion Nikon is a use once and throw away camera as the company does not honor it's waranty and uses their waranty service to charge more than what the camera is worth for repairs

Color Name: Plum
My kids found this camera on sale and convinced me to purchase it. I am glad I did as compared to the old HP camera, which I loved, this camera is far superior when it comes to ease-of-use. What I most love about this camera is the rechargeable power supply which means I do not have to purchase batteries. As the old HP digital camera was a battery hog, the Nikon is a winner when it comes to this feature.

I also like how easy it is to select the functions you would like to use when readying to take a photo. The back of the camera has a touch screen that displays the functions you can choose from. I have older fingers so I do use the attached stylus to choose the function I want to use.

When setting up the photo a grid is displayed to help guide you in selecting the correct perspective meaning those photos will come out looking professional.

My only complaint is sometimes, for whatever reason, some of the photos tend to come out a bit fuzzy. Perhaps it's the photographer and not the camera we'll never know :-)

Very pleased with this purchase and this is a great little camera for daily use.
