5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Product

Comments: Bought this camera with my graduation money. I love it. It's has many features that i haven't even found out about yet. Only complaint is that it doesn't take moving pictures very good but it is excellent for still pictures

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome camera

Comments: I purchased this camera in Nov 2002 and since then I have taken over 5,000 pictures with it. Easy to hold steady in one hand. The photos it produces are extremely good, camera is easy to handle and sturdy. I take it travelling everywhere, it sometimes sees some rough use, the worse it has done is show some scratches. Even the Nikon software is good - I only use the transfer software, but it is unobtrusive, does it's job well. It automatically sees even just the CF card when it's stuck in my reader, does it's job, then goes away. I don't use the other software, so can't comment on it. Recommended camera for a first digital - use it in automatic or nearly-auto manual mode, then use more manual options as your abilities increase.

5 out of 5 eggsNikon and New Egg

Comments: Received my camera in 2 days from new egg, they did not try to sell me unwanted items. The camera is just what I would expect from Nikon, great in every respect. New Egg was very helpful, a wonderful combination. Jim Fruge

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Comments: I bought this camera about 6 months ago, and it's been excellent so far. The macro photos are amazingly good. The battery lasts longer than I expected, too. It's definitely one of the best cameras you can get for the price. Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb @ what they do- get ready for a blazing-fast delivery

Comments: I ordered the camera on 26 Dec, before noon CST. I received it the next Monday before noon CST. W/ no problems at all. Amazingly fast(!) packaging/shipping from them. NewEgg proved to be the best all-around for price, availabilty, promptness of delivery, and no 'after-the-sale' hassles to "Buy MORE from US..!!". If the ratings would go to 10, I'd punch that baby in- You da man, N-egg!!

Comments: I ordered the product on Friday before noon PST. I received it the following Monday here in CST. Much Kudos to the shipping and packing team at NewEgg. The camera is a Christmas present for my wife, and if the camera is a good as the research suggests, Christmas will be fantastic. NewEgg earned all five stars from me based on price and delivery metrics. Congratulations NewEgg, you have a new long term customer.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: I received the coolpix 4300 today and have had no problems. Perfect quality, and great options! After about 5 minutes I was ready to go, just needed some charging. I suggest buying a bigger flash memory card because this one eats up the 8meg one like a monster. No regrets, no complaints! If you are looking for a great 4.1mp digital cam, this is the one you should buy. Thanks newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsCoolpix 4300 ROCKS!

Comments: I bought this camera in early 09/03 and took in on vacation two days later. The instructions are easy to read, and the camera is easy to use. I had a great time experimenting with the manual controls, and I managed to get some great shots.

This camera is awesome.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat

Comments: I got it from Newegg, their delivery was excellent, ordered Tues. night and got it Fri. afternoon.
I had researched a couple of weeks for Digicam (below $400) and finally decided to get this. Btw C4000(Olympus) and Coolpix4300, I chose the later one, because C4000 was a bit more bulky and slightly lower in picture quality than 4300.
4300 has a lot of manual functions to play with, I recently learned a lot of things about using a still-camera. I am a sort of digital video editor.
Pro; Quality image!! easy to manupulate (4300 has been known well as difficult menus, but very easy for me).
Con; Low battery life (better get one more, I got one more), very noisy lens work during autofocusing, annoying when you are indoor)

I like it, strongly recommend it!
