Nikon Coolpix 4200 review

The Nikon 4200 is my first digital camera--I've had it for about a year now. It replaced my (film) Canon SLR EOS Rebel, whose pictures I love, but whose bulk made it inefficient to cart around.
I like the size of the 4200--small, yet not so small and flat that you have nothing to grab onto when taking pics. I've liked most of the pictures I've taken with it--the only fuzzy pics I've had were low light without flash or tripod.

Problems:

main complaint is that what you see thru the viewfinder is not the sum total of the picture. What's on the screen is, but the pic is sharper (less chance of blurriness) I've found if I look thru the viewfinder when taking the shot (probably because holding the camera to my face is more stable than just holding it out w/2 hands). Other than that, it's a nice little camera.
