All Nikon Coolpix cameras have an auto switching (from 100v to 240V 50hz/60hz) battery charger that will work in most countries around the world. AC adapters have similar characteristics. Always check the specification plate on your other battery chargers or AC adapters as third party products may not support dual voltage systems. We do not suggest the use of third party battery chargers and AC adapters with Nikon equipment.
Note that the power cord included with some Nikon chargers or AC adapter is designed for 110 volt use only. A power cord suitable for the local power system should be obtained on arrival, most airport shops and computer suppliers will carry these items which are typically used for laptop computer power supply connections. Be sure that the new cord you buy fits the Nikon adapter you wish to use it with and that it is rated for the voltage in your new location. While not recommended, a simple plug adapter may be used, but caution should be taken as the cord Nikon supplies is not rated for the higher voltage and may heat or fail.
Some newer Coolpix have included an AC Adapter, like the EH-68P AC adapter, for plugging directly into a wall outlet without the use of a power cord. As with previous chargers, the correct adapter must be acquired for the country traveled to, and fitted to the Nikon AC adapter to allow proper AC connection to the wall outlet.

Question

Why won't new S4300 recognize SDHC cards?

Have tried SanDisk 8GB (class 6) and Lexar 16 GB (class 10) cards in brand new S4300. Shows "this card cannot be used" error.

Both cards are on approved list of cards for this camera. Both cards work fine in other cameras and fully recognized by computer in card reader.

Is this a known issue? Any possible workaround to try to get camera to recognize and format these cards?

<<<Yes, the COOLPIX S4300 is compatible with the SDHC cards. A new memory card needs to be formatted using the camera; it cannot go thru different cameras because that will damage your memory card. Try formatting the memory card with the card reader and then with the camera. Also, verify that is not write protected.>>>

I've never heard of cards being damaged by re-use in various cameras -- requires reformatting of course, but not damaging to the cards.

At any rate, we have since tried a third SDHC card (SanDisk 4GB class 4) that also brings up the same error ("this card cannot be used").

All cards have been reformatted to FAT32 using the card reader and computer. The camera will not allow formatting of the cards -- it won't proceed to the menu beyond the "card cannot be used" error screen.

None of the cards are write-protected.

Please verify that you are using an approved memory card. Also, turn on the camera without the memory card inside or try a different USB cable.

Where is the continuous shoot mode

I wanted a new camera where the time to shoot next pic was shorter and this one is just as slow. The manual says there is a continuous shoot mode but I can't find it. The spot it shows in manual doesn't show up on my screen.

To shoot continuously with the S4300, the camera needs to be in Auto mode. Sport scene mode also works.

(1) To Put the camera in Auto mode, turn the camera on, press the Scene mode button (middle green camera icon button), and select the first icon (Camera Icon) on the far left of the screen.

(2)To select continuous frame, press Menu, and select the Icon that is located between ISO and WB auto. There you should be able to select single frame, continuous, Best shot selector, and multishot-16

Question

What is the maximum data/transfer rate

I am wondering if it makes any sense to get the fastest speed "UHS 1" type card, such as the SanDisk Extreme, or if something like the "class 10" SanDisk Ultra would be equally adequate. Thanks.

Class 10 non UHS-1 card will be sufficient for the casual photographer. The UHS-1 greatly reduces the transfer rate to your computer. Very useful if you take 100's of pictures or a lot of video.

Question

NIGHT PICTURES - NIKON COOLPIX S4300 QUERY

I was taking pictures in DC of the monuments in the evening/night with a new Nikon S4300 camera I just bought (I did not bring one and was attending a conference during the day). Although there was lighting, the pictures did not come out the way I wished; and the far away ones were terrible when I zoomed in. Also, I had a slight orange color on some pictures. Is this camera not made for night picture taking? I got it figuring that it would result in good picture taking knowing the Nikon reputation for cameras. My Motorola RAZR2 telephone provided me better pictures than this camera did, and I hoped, to my dismay, the camera would result in good pictures.

How do I turn off the touch shutter feature?

"Prevent shooting with accidental tapping of the monitor in Auto mode and some scene modes by changing the touch shooting setting to Touch AF/AE (page 148). At this setting, the shutter is not released when the monitor is tapped."

After searching Google for a while I decided to flip through the PDF manual provided and I eventually came across the answer.

From your camera manual:
C The Clock Battery
• The camera clock is powered by the backup battery that is separate from the camera’s main
battery.
• The backup battery charges when the main battery is inserted into the camera or when the
camera is connected to an optional AC adapter, and can provide several days of backup power
after about ten hours of charging.
• If the backup battery becomes exhausted, the date and time setting screen is displayed when the
camera is turned on. Set the date and time again. See “Setting the Display Language, Date and
Time” (step 2, A24) for more information.
