Default Replacement Rechargeble Battery for Coolpix 4500

After 2-1/2 years of using the Coolpix 950, I just upgraded to the 4500.

One of the major adjustments is converting from AA Batteries to the battery that the 4500 uses.

It comes with one rechargeble battery, but I like to have two or maybe even three.

Of course, I can purchase single-use batteries for about $10, but I prefer to have additional rechargeables.

I was told that the replacement rechargebles for the coolpix 4500 go for about $49.

Where can I get a replacement rechargeble for the 4500?

Nice to meet you all here, here are my pictures:

Default Question for you...

Have you notice any difference between the battery time from the 950 to the 4500? I have also made the switch you did from the 950 to 4500.'

I have also read that the 4500 is difficult to get sharp pictures. Have you noticed any differences there?

Any other comparisons would be appreciated.

Concerning your battery question... I have been looking on ebay, There are some good prices there. Check it out...

I just bought the camera yesterday, so I haven't taken many pictures yet to do such a quality comparison. Also, no knowledge yet on battery usage time.

I would be very suprised if there's a decrease in quality. Where did you read that?

Default My 4500 hasn't arrived yet.

Well whats your first impression so far? Ergonomics and such? The 4500 also doesn't have the LCD on the top for the controls. Wonder if that will be a problem...

Here is the link to the post for the clarity problem concern...

Sounds like operator error but I've read a couple of other posts concerning this also.

The pictures came out well with the Coolpix 4500

Here's my first photos with it:

Also, I've discovered something with colorization:

Question:

How do I take pictures with the 4500 in black and white mode? The Nikon 950 had a black and white mode, but I can't find that setting on the 4500?

Hi, B&W is under Saturation Control in the menu.

Thanks, I finally found that. It's too bad there's no black and white option in auto-mode.

Another question is, I'm thinking about simply taking all my pictures in color, and converting them to black and white or other later. I recently discovered something about Adjusting Colorization and color strength.
