Most cameras only allow index finger ,but S-4 body twists , allow
thumb,index finger , little finger to shoot . This select , allows steadier shot .
S-4 would take more volume if lens was not in a "wingtank" !
It is the smallest footprint possible with the most features .
Dont buy a Z-6 , only for the slightly faster lens ( 2.8 vs 3.5 ) .
It does not make a difference .
All Digi-cams still lack fast set to manual focus.
You missed the shot for the autofocus ! You could have easily switched
to manual , but where is it !!!! My Z-6 is such !
So Nikon , as all , will force you to use AUTO , and it works
fine in normal light .
I love the S-4 , i wish the user could force makers to
let us program the camera . Like MyNikon button , under
which i could temp' copy all the functions into MyNikon
menus . I would have TEXT instead of COPY !
Image trying to shoot a page from a book !
There is no BOOK , no TEXT , nothing to help you
set that mode !
It blurred a shot , you figure why , program MyNikon menu
to set manual focus and Icon shows a Near sighted Mr Magoo.
The booklet is missing stuff . Like the LCD icons .
What is the Double Macro icon on top ofsingle macro icon ?
Trued turning it off .....No key worked !! Then tried icons
in Menu ... Why do i see 2 macro icons on LCD ?
Explanation s/b on page 4 ( its missing )
S-4 has a close range I.R. led to "assist" focus , select
it in MENU , else normal focus is using avail' light .
Noalkalines batteries are made that will put out the
amps a Digi-Cam takes!
S-4 uses 2 AA's , and it can adjust the battery indicator ! It will adjust NimH , Alkaline and Li-Ion . Great !
D-cams still lack editing , but Nikon copies
the orig and increases contrast . "D-Lite".
I need Gama and saturation . Every shot i take needs
to up the color saturation.
Its the smallest hi powered camera on earth !

I recently got an S4 myself. Very under-rated little camera, imo. I got it as my tele-lens compliment to my wide-angle D50 system.
I'm not too much of a tele-shooter, but thought this would be nice to have when i need some "reach."
I like the compact "twister" body, overall quality, 2.5 lcd & 10x zoom. I also have a CP 950 with tele & wide converters.
