Nikon Coolpix 4100


Nikon Coolpix 4100

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Nikon Coolpix 4100 is an entry-level point-and-shoot digital camera based on the features and design of the Coolpix 3200. Like the 3200, it is designed to make your entry into digital photography as fool-proof as possible. It features 4.0 megapixels resolution, a 3x optical zoom, and 15 Scene Modes to cover most picture-taking situations.

Though Auto mode is ideal for most situations, there are special situations that require some exposure (and other setting) adjustments for the best images. With Scene Modes, all you have to do is frame the scene and let the camera automatically handle all the adjustments for you. Scene modes include: Party, Beach/Snow, Sunset, Fireworks Show, Landscape, Portrait, Sports, Close up, Museum, Dusk/Dawn, Panorama assist, etc.

If you are into macro photography, you can move in as close as 4 cm (1.6 in.) for extreme close-up details. Record short clips with sound in QuickTime(TM) Movie format until your SD memory card is full -- and then watch them on TV.

Use Best Shot Selector in difficult situations where camera shake may cause blurred images; the camera takes a number of shots and automatically selects the sharpest one. And if it is still blurry, Blur Detection warns you so you can take it again. A low-light AF-assist Illuminator helps obtain focus lock in low-light situations.

We like the Nikon Coolpix 4100 for its easy-to-use features, Nikkor quality lens, compact dimensions and light weight.
