Nikon Coolpix 4200 review
Aug 8, 2004

Ibought this little Nikon camera instead of my stolen IXUS 400. I thought lets give Nikon a try. As a proffessional photographer i only use Canon equipment.
I brought this Nikon camera back after exactly three days.
What a poor piteous camera! A waste of chips and material. The only positive thing about this camera is that it corrects its lightning in film mode, but thats all.
This review is for the Nikon Coolpix 5200 as well.
I'm glad that i changed for a new Canon IXUS 500

Problems:

Dont install the poor software! (there are millions of better software programs to manage you photographs, (picasa for instance), when you uninstall, Photoshop misses a couple of drivers!!
Continue underexposed pictures in dark/light situations.
The lens is the most dreadful of all: in wideangle position it looks in de corners like a fisheye lens!
Its inpossible to adjust the LCD screen, its too light or its too dark.
Poor colour quality.
Dont waste your time or money.
