Default Nikon 4500 or 4300

These Cameras seem very similar except for the design and price.

It just seems that the 4300 is the newer (smaller) version. If the 4300 is newer, does the 4300 provide the better image?

It also seems as though the 4500 is on the way out. I don't see it in as many stores (online) as I see the 4300. There is also a large $200 rebate for the 4500 which in some cases brings the price to below $200, while the 4300 is around $450.

Am I missing something?

I like the smaller size of the 4300, but if it lacks in image quality, I am not going to pay more for it just because of size.

The price of the 4300 does seem to average around $450, but you can find it for $400 (perhaps less). The images are probably as good as the 4500. See the review of these camera's on this web site. Are the 4300 pictures better though ... don't know. Both camera's are very feauture rich, but the 4500 does have a few more bells and whistles. The 4500 has a 4x zoom (4300 - 3x). The 4500 also has more manual controls, aperture and shutter priority modes.

The additional manual controls probably would not get used too much by me.

I bought the DX3500 I have now because I wanted a simple to use camera, but it falls woefully short in low light conditions and indoors. It takes a very nice image in the daytime though...


I'll Ebay it if I get a new one.
