Nikon Coolpix S4000 Review
Let us take a look.
With Nikon unveiling several new CoolPix cameras in its series lineup sometime ago, Vr-zone gets to have some fun hands-on with Coolpix S4000, lushed with some lovely features. What makes this camera interesting?
Nikon CoolPix S4000 is a 12-megapixel camera with a 3” touch screen (460,000-dot with anti-reflection coating) and capable of 720p HD movie recording.
Most of its controls are performed by tapping on the touchscreen with its stylus or you can tap using your fingers. Our test model was silver in color, of course, there are other colors such as red, pink, gold and black (supplied colors may differ depending on region)
