The Nikon 4300 probably did come out in 2002, but it is still a excellent camera. Lens is sharp and it takes good pictures. I had one till recently (sold it to save pennies for a dslr) and the only things I didn't like about it was

1. Startup delay - probably typical for a good many digicams though.
2. shutter lag - not bad - once again probably tyipical - I just couldn't get used to it because I'm used to the camera going off when I press the button.
3. short battery life - if he takes many pictures, he'll definitely want a spare battery.

Other then that, I like the camera. Had mine for nearly a year and never had a problem with it. Has lots of advanced features if he's into more than just point and shoot. Check out Steve's review on this site. It is a good review.
