A really versatile Digital Camera, 18 Dec 2004
I've had this camera for about 3 weeks and have to say it's absolutely fabulous. The main feature that attracted me to it is the 8.3x optical zoom lens. This gives a zoom equivalent to a 300mm lens in a 35mm camera. I used to use a Nikon F65 with a separate 300mm zoom lens. Now, thanks to the 4800 I can still take some great long distance shots but with a camera small and light enough to fit in my pocket. The camera also has great features like scene assist and movie mode, and comes with Nikon photo software. The instruction book is very thorough, but the camera is easy enough to operate so you'll be taking great photos before you've read it.
