Nikon Coolpix 4800 review

I don't understand the negative reviews on this camera. I have owned and used several "point and shoot" digital cameras this hands-down produces the best and most consistent images. Yes, it has a plastic body, but it seems to hold up well. No, it does not have a plethora of manual features. But for the price you can't beat image quality and ease of use and the 8.3 zoom is great as long as you use a tripod at max zoom. PS - Ive seen this camera as low as $299. And just make sure to set White Balance on Auto or Preset the White Balance before using.


Occasionally the built in lense cover sticks a bit.
