Nikon Coolpix 4800 review

As the salesman told me, "depends what you use it for," which for me is nature studies, macros, landscapes and photo copying of my art work. Has a short manual and a long one, both clear.

It's not sturdy, tripod mount is plastic, no image stabilization so it needs a steady hand, support or tripod.
