The Coolpix 4200 is an easy-to-operate compact digital camera that boasts high-level comprehensive quality, 4.0 effective megapixel performance, and a selection of useful functions. Superior image quality begins with a newly developed 3x Zoom-Nikkor lens with a focal range of 7.8 to 23.4mm (equivalent to a 38-114mm lens in 35mm format). Featuring aspherical elements and an ED glass element, it achieves a significant reduction in aberration. It also retracts to contribute greatly to the overall slim dimensions of the body. The Coolpix 4200 has the additional advantage of 4.0 effective megapixels, which ensures images are recorded with satisfying clarity.
