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.

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
Nikons smarter approach to digital imaging technology. From image capture to processing, Nikons 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-in., 460k-dot TFT LCD featuring Nikons Clear Color Display with touch screen control
The 3-in. 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.
*Recording stops automatically after 29 minutes. This figure is based on in-house testing standards and stated for recording at 25°C with a fully charged EN-EL12 battery. Actual results may vary greatly depending on factors that include differences in ambient temperature, and the amount of zoom and autofocus operations used.
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, Nikons original BSS (Best Shot Selector) function automatically shoots a series of sequential frames and saves the one with the sharpest focus.
* The camera selects and uses only the features required to optimize each image.
Intelligent automation contributes to carefree shooting
Nikons 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.
Nikons 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 subjects 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.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera (Red):
I've used this camera alot when I travel. It takes great pix during the day. I keep getting a blurry pix especially @ night. I would rather to have a camera that has automatic setting between indoor/night/day setting without going into setting to change it. ISO setting is hard to find. Short battery life. No memory card or battery slot.
