A superb little compact! I got mine to take on holiday so I didn't need to cart my D70 around. Produces nice photos - Highly recommended. Problems: AF settings sometimes seem to ignore your input and do as it pleases.

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 ...

I used this small Camera in complement of my D70, and after owned a Casio Z4 and Pentax Optio S, compare with the two last these camera offer a more reactive focus and picrures more sharp. A good camera for many situations. Problems: Focus is quiet longer in low light No manual setting

Excellent construction, excellent layout, fast, easy to use,small, good focus ( better then many) pretty decent value but the color had green tint. Compared to other makers I was not that impressed with photo colors and clarity outside. It wasn't bad and I realize its a tiny camera but I just think the colors need upgrading for me to compare to competition. Nikon needs to keep the good things here for sure because construction and layout and ease of use is best in class. Problems: colors ...

A great camera to carry around with, takes great, sharp pictures. I think the majority of complaints about softness are just due to the fact that you had the camera settings wrong when you took the picture. With the high jpeg compression it does affect larger print sizes though. The macro mode is the best and sharpest among everything I've seen thus far.

I own 5200, but there is no site for review. Good quality images, natural colors. Excellent red eye reduction. Indoors and outdoors shooting is good. Problems: Images bit softer compare to Sony and Canon, but that is not picture postcard. In fact problem can be fixed in set up menu easily.

I purchased the 5200 about a week ago from Profeel. I have taken over 100 pictures, had 20 printed and recorded 4 movie clips (indoors and out). I am very happy with it over all. I have not had any problems with skin tones. I took several very sharp pictures of my four year old running with the camera in the sports mode. In one she wasn't even touching the ground. I have never had a camera that could do that. You can't beat it's size and ease of use. I had it with me on a walk and was ...

As a beginner in digital cameras I think I picked a winner with the CP5200. Sorry about the post here but the 5200 does not have a review and it's the 4200 big brother. The small size is a plus for me. I can take this camera with me and never know it's there. I have found the settings very easy to use and the softness reported by others can be attributed to not using the right settings for the situation. Since the camera does not have a true manual control over aperture and shutter speed you ...

The delay is awful! Otherwise a very easy camera to use. Light weight and small. The only way to capture a picture without blur (unless it's a tree) is to have it in action mode. The delay is unbeleivable! I'm going to play with it some more, but I might have to take it back. I'm use to my Canon EOS Rebel dSLR and even my inexpensive Kodax digital (can't remember the # off hand), neither of these cameras have a delay at all. Problems: As stated above the massive delay.
