The Coolpix S4000 offers advanced shooting features that fully utilize the touch screen.

White Balance can also be adjusted by touch in Food mode by dragging a finger to move the slider marker. The Coolpix S4000 is also equipped with Subject Tracking, which automatically follows and focuses on a subject selected by touch.
Touch control also lends a new dimension of fun to viewing and retouching images. The speed and ease of fingertip scrolling through images and instant image selection makes other forms of control pale in comparison.

Included is the Paint Function, which enables memos, drawings, colorful borders or stamps to be added directly to images.
Another important feature of the Coolpix S4000 is its high performance imaging capabilities. 12.0 effective megapixels of sharp resolution is matched to the compositional freedom of a precision 4x zoom, Nikkor lens that ably covers focal lengths from 27-108mm (35mm format equivalent). Advanced digital image-processing faithfully reproduces fine details and subtle tones, delivers quick response, and maintains image quality and clarity when taking advantage of extended light sensitivity settings as high as ISO 3200.
Nikon Coolpix S4000 Feature Highlights
EXPEED digital imaging technology
Nikon's smarter approach to digital imaging technology. From image capture to processing, Nikon's comprehensive EXPEED digital imaging concept encompasses the entire picture-taking operation. EXPEED is much more than a processing engine; it is a revolution in digital photography.
3-inch, 460k-dot TFT LCD featuring Nikon's Clear Color Display with touch screen control
The 3-inch LCD featuring Clear Color Display for the Coolpix S4000 is a delight to both the eyes and the fingers. Its large size and high-resolution make picture-taking and playback more enjoyable. The screen resists fingerprints, and features anti-reflection coating for better display in bright situations.
High-Definition movie recording
Entertain audiences with movies that capture the impact of the scene with HD. The Coolpix S4000 can shoot up to 1.5 hours of HD movies (720p) with sound at 30fps.
Four advanced image stabilizing features help ensure sharper results
Nikon's Electronic VR image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake. Motion Detection automatically controls shutter speed and the ISO setting to compensate for subject movement as well as camera shake. ISO 3200 capability allows faster shutter speeds when shooting in low light or capturing fast-moving subjects. And, Nikon's original BSS (Best Shot Selector) function automatically shoots a series of sequential frames and saves the one with the sharpest focus.
Intelligent automation contributes to carefree shooting
Nikon's Scene Auto Selector eliminates the need to manually select a scene mode to match the shot, and this makes it faster and easier to capture the moment in beautiful fashion. The Coolpix S4000 uses this intelligent function to analyze the subject and its surrounding settings and automatically selects the most appropriate of the following six scene modes to achieve optimal results--Portrait, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Close-up, or Backlight.
Nikon's exclusive Smart Portrait System
Automatically detecting as many as 12 faces in the shot, Face-priority AF helps produce satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure. Smile Timer automatically releases the shutter when the priority subject smiles and offers the Blink Proof function, which automatically shoots two sequential frames and saves the one in which the subject's eyes are open-wide. Now featuring faster processing speed, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.
Customer Reviews of Nikon COOLPIX S4000 12 Megapixel Digital Camera with 4x Wide-Angle Lens, 3" Touchscreen LCD, HD Movie, Image Stabilization, Silver
I like the camera. However, the touchscreen is really not working for me so I have to use the piece that comes with the camera to be able to use the touchscreen.
Great little camera at a good price8/29/2012
I got this nifty Coolpix camera at a great price from ClickOnADeal. Everything went well.
Small, easy to use, went on a fishing trip today.
This Nikon is reliable, sturdy and small8/17/2012
What a great camera! 12 megapixels and all the bells and whistles you'd never expect in such a small camera. It's lightweight, easy to navigate its instrumentation, and a user-friendly menu that I've seen on expensive SLRs but never point-and-shooters like this. I've been using Nikon cameras for thirty years and I know the precision is still there in each and every Nikon. That hasn't changed. It's just gotten a lot smaller. And it's digital now.
Great to work with !8/16/2012
easy purchae - prompt delivery - thanks!
Totally satisfied in terms of value, promptness, ease of use. Could not be faulted in any area. Great experience.
Wanted a small point and shoot and the Coolpix S4000 fills that demand.
Nice little camera for daily & biz use2/20/2012
In looking for a daily and hiking use point and shoot camera I was pleased to find this little Nikon. It was a refurbished model, though it was more than likely a simple return. Excellent condition. Nothing missing. I miss the eyepiece viewfinder cameras used to have. It has so many functions it's hard to know where to start learning. So far the pictures have been beautiful.
This is an awsome product.If you like gadgets this is perfect.The colour quality of the pictures are great even in low light if you adjust the settings.The only draw back is the inability to record HD video for more than 12 mins at a strech no matter the size of your SD card.
Great quality picture and lots of features11/29/2010
The picture quality from this camera is FANTASTIC!! the boot up is quick as is the reloading from the storage screen. The feature on this camera make it an excellent buy for the price. I also own a Sony and this far out performs the Sony in all aspects!! The digital zoom makes the pictures grainy but that is expected, and is also noted in the manual. The one drawback is trying to learn all the features it has a mode for everything!
