I just upgraded from another pocket sized camera and this Nikon Coolpix is so amazing! Love the touch screen, the upclose pics I've taken are completely in focus, the recovery time between pics is WAY FAST, the cool purple color is my favorite, and I can't wait to go shoot some HD video! Totally the gold standard of pocket-sized cameras!

I love the small size of this camera and how it's so easy to take with you any where you go. It seems to take acceptable pictures outdoors and in normal lighting. However I used it to take pictures at my grandson's graduation and very few of them turned out. They were yellow and blurry. I had the camera on auto so maybe I needed to set it to a different scene mode-I'm not sure but I'm very disappointed that these once in a lifetime pictures did not turn out. I've had 2 other Nikon cameras and have been very happy with them. I replaced my 7MP camera with this one and I would have thought it would take much better pictures than it does. I would not recommend this camera to anyone.

Comments about Nikon COOLPIX S4100 Silver 14.0 Megapixel Digital Camera:
good thing about s4100, its touch screen, fast and can take high quality picture / movie.but sorry to say as time goes on i had this almost 2 years give or take, it shows its downside, it does not charge anymore, i did not use it often, never mis-use.like drop it or some otherway way to make it malfunction..it was a gift to me from my parents so i took great care for it..i googled and in the end landed back here nikon website and on my frequent shall i say "surfing" i noticed that its not just me that suffer the same fate about s4100 not charging, tried taking the memory off, it always blink a minute and nothing..also tried charging it with my computer, same result...sorry for the long explanation, my only advice is never leave this device uncharge for far too long,if it may in day, discharge (for a day or two,your call) it by leaving it on and turn its power saving feature "off" then charge it again..i repeat..please don't leave it for far too long uncharge..or suffer the same fate..
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Junk! Failed after a handful of pictures
from Los Angeles, CA, USA
I had this camera since August last year, it was for my daughter, but she has barely used it. And maybe I should have tested it when I got it before I gave it to her... The camera failed after about 30-40 pictures! The lens comes out, an error message pops up to inform me that there is a "Lens error", and the lens goes back in. Unusable!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

THE TERRIFIC ONE
from Mexico City, Federal District, Mexico
THERE ARE A LOT OF OPTIONS WHEN YOU WANT TO PURCHASE A CAMARA, BUT THERE IS JUST ONE WHEN YOU ARE FOUND OF A REAL HQ EXPERIENCE. COOLPIX S4100 IS A TERRIFIC OPTION

worked fine for 1 year
By amateur photog
the camera was very cool having the touch screen. The only problem I had was the battery lasted me only a year! Now I cant get the pictures off of the camera! This is kind of a bummer!
from North Dakota
This camera worked great for about a year. After that it no longer focused well and 80% of my pictures were blurry. I have never had a camera stop working. I have always bought new cameras in order to upgrade what the camera was able to do. this is by far the most disappointing camera I have ever owned and it is unlikely I will buy a Nikon in the future because of the poor quality of this camera.

Great camera for those on the go!
from Central Florida
Writing reviews is not my strong suit, but seeing the number of negative comments, I had to state my experience. I purchased this camera for my wife for her birthday and she loves it. All she wanted was something easy to use and small enough to carry anywhere. The Nikon Coolpix S4100 fits the bill. The camera has gone on a cruise and several trips with her. The operation of the camera is simple, picture are great, the touch screen flawless and absolutely zero trouble charging the battery. I know others with the S4100 are their reaction to the camera is the same.

Haven't gotten one single clear photo out of this thing
I wish it were possible to award this thing a half a star, or none. I've tried everything I can to fix the problems but literally EVERY SINGLE PHOTO taken with this thing comes out hideously blurred, yellowed, and filled with noise. The shutter speed is exasperatingly slow and sometimes nothing happens at all. I often have to press the button more than twice to get it to take a picture. What is with this thing? According to what I've read on the internet, this is a very very common problem. I figure at a couple dozen search result pages of people reporting terrible photos, the problem is not with me, but with the camera. I have a three decades old Nikon SLR which still works and still takes great photos. The poor quality of these new digitals is disappointing.
