The touchscreen displays of the cameras are often the subject of criticism because of the touch response issues. Nikon Coolpix S4400 beats this as the touch is quite responsive and responds well to the finger touch and the stylus both. If you have used touchscreen cameras before with frustrating response issues, you will have a pleasant experience with S4400.
The touchscreen is the biggest USP of S4400. If you are looking for a touchscreen camera that also fits your budget, S4400 is a decent choice. If touchscreen is not what you really want and can do without, S4400 is not exactly the best pick. You can get better quality cameras at a lesser price.

Touchscreen is the feature that adds extra dollars to the price of the camera. If you are picking a budget camera with touchscreen do look forward to some compromise on the other aspects. There are some glaring issues related to the photo quality that S4400 delivers. The autofocus system is not quite up to the mark. You will see inconsistent results even at normal shooting speeds. You will also not be very impressed with the picture quality especially when taken in low light setting. Yet you can expect some good quality pictures when taken in the right settings of light and speed. S4400 delivers good results when taking pictures of still objects but you need to ensure that you keep the camera steady.
How about the look and feel?
The look and feel of the camera is worth the price. The camera is ultra-compact with a metallic body. It is offered in five different colors but the availability of all the colors is region specific. Although the camera is pretty compact and light weight you can still handle it very comfortably especially when you hold it using the wrist strap.
Nikon Coolpix S4400 Price in India:
The Nikon Coolpix S4400 Price in India is around 7,500* Rupees.
S4400 comes with a wide-angle lens which is capable of 6X zoom. The high resolution touchscreen LCD display is 3 inches wide which you will not find in any other camera in this price range. There are very few physical controls as the touchscreen is capable of handling most of the camera functions. S4400 only has regular power button, shooting button and a zoom ring. On the back panel there are only two buttons – play button and shooting mode button.
S4400 comes with 20.1 Megapixel resolution and CCD type image sensor. It is pretty normal for touchscreen cameras to have ordinary battery backup. Same is the case with Nikon Coolpix S4400’s Li Ion rechargeable battery. Fully charged battery offers 190 – 200 shots provided you have not spent too much time reviewing the saved pictures.
In the end, S4400 is a doable option, in this price range, if you truly want a touchscreen camera and are ready to settle with mediocre photo quality.
