If you want to get a 3-4 MP camera, I would like to tell you why you should consider this camera:
1. Excellent optics. Very crisp pictures, good color adjustment. (you can always depend on Nikon because the commpany is dedicated to optical instruments in contrast to some other companies who produce digital cameras, speakers, PDAs, TVs, radios, keyboards etc at the same time! Makes sense?).
2. Size: It is compact and light but at the same time gives you the feeling of holding a camera and not some nonspecific electronic rectangular object (which I value very much).
3. The zoom: 3x optical zoom is not provided by other brands with similar value and MP. They all offer digital zoom and all of us know what that means!
4. Software: Very intuitive and easy to learn. I did not have to read the manual to understand the menus and that is a great plus. The Custom mode offers several settings from room lighting type to bracketing, and several other stuff that you will enjoy using. But the bottom line is, you actually can get to use the camera the way you want to just by the click of a single button.
5. The Macro mode: Fantastic! You can get close up from 1.6 inches and this is real. Try the other cameras and get a close up at that distance. I have tried but could not succeed. If you are going to use the Macro mode, be sure to try all the brands but when you try, you will see that Nikon has an excellent macro mode.
One problem I have encountered is the focusing sound the camera produces when it focuses. However, at day 2, I realized that it was due to the default continuous AF mode and when I switched it to single AF, there was virtually no sound. If that sound had persisted, the camera rating would have been 4 stars and I am so glad that you can actually get rid of that sound. Some people may not find it bothering but I did!
Amazon offered it at a great price when I bought it and I don't know if they will continue selling it because it is so good you don't need any better (unless you want to print pictures with sizes > 11x14 inches, where Coolpix 4300 or 4500 would be better suited to your intentions. However, for that paper size, remember that each shot will be of about 2 MB size)
I definitely recommend this camera to people looking for 3-4 MB range. Just try it before buying any digital camera. You will notice the difference.
The shutter delay that some people have complained about is a problem but not a big one unless you're a sports photographer. You learn to accommodate it. It was the one problem that almost kept me from buying this camera but I'm glad I took the chance.
I had no problem with the battery life as long as I didn't leave the camera on too long when I wasn't taking pictures. I'd charge it at night and it usually lasted me all day. If I were a real serious photographer, I think I'd want to carry a spare but for vacation snapshots, this one worked just fine. I averaged about 60 shots per day with no problem.
The only complaint I had was that my dinosaur computer didn't want to recognize my camera when I attempted to upload the pictures. First I had to upgrade my OS. Windows 98 just wasn't good enough. Even then it took me a couple of attempts to get the process to work. That's probably the fault of my computer but it's rather annoying that they don't make the software work for past Windows versions.
The optional Fisheye Lense brings picture taking to a whole new level. Also the Wide angle lense almost doubles your picture size. The only thing wrong with this camera is it takes 45 second videos, Which is amazing, But it doesnt record sound.
I called Nikon weeks after I purchased it & They couldnt tell me why. I am now buying the 5700 which takes 60 sec. Videos with sound Also has an extra Megapixel & 8x digi Zoom.
All in All Its a Great Camera for the price.
