Nikon Coolpix S4 review

I have had the CP S4 for two days now and am very satisfied with the picture quality and its general operation.

There are four things that bother me, three are small items which are:

When you use Portrait Verticle Orentation the flash comes from the bottom of the camera and gives a weird effect.

The second is you can not help getting finger prints on the monitor.

The third is you have to go to the menu in order to adjust exposure to make the picture brighter or darker, there is a free space on the right of the toggle switch, I wonder why they did not put it there.

The fourth and most disturbing is you can not see the image on the monitor on a sunny day. Here in Spain it is almost always sunny.

Nikon blew it when they left out the view finder.

It is because of this reason that I am sorry that I bought the camera and am going to put it up for sale at a loss.

Heere in Spain there is no such thing as returning foto equipment once you have left the store.

Problems:

You can not see the image on the monitor on a sunny day.
