Frame the picture.
Using a Tripod
• We recommend using a tripod to stabilize the camera when shooting in the following situations:
- When shooting in dim lighting or when the flash mode (A56) is set to c (Off).
- When using the telephoto setting.
• Set Vibration reduction (A89) to Off in the setup menu when using a tripod to stabilize the
camera during shooting.
Step 3 Frame a Picture
Using the Zoom
Use the zoom control to activate optical zoom.
• To zoom in closer to the subject, rotate the zoom
control to g (telephoto).
• To zoom out and view a larger area, rotate the zoom
control to f (wide-angle).
• The zoom position is set at the maximum wide-angle
position when the camera is turned on.
• A zoom indicator is displayed at the top of the
monitor when the zoom control is rotated.
Zoom out
Zoom in
Digital Zoom
When the camera is zoomed in to the maximum optical zoom position, rotating
and holding the zoom control at g triggers digital zoom. The subject is magnified
up to 4× the maximum optical zoom ratio.

Basic Steps for Shooting and Playback
Optical zoom Digital
zoom
• The camera focuses at the center of the frame and the focus area is not
displayed when digital zoom is in effect.
C
Digital Zoom and Interpolation
Unlike optical zoom, digital zoom uses a digital imaging process known as interpolation to magnify
images, resulting in slight deterioration of image quality according to the image mode (A64) and
digital zoom magnification.
Interpolation is applied at zoom positions beyond V when taking still images. When zoom is
increased beyond the V position, interpolation is initiated and the zoom indicator turns yellow to
indicate that interpolation is being applied. V moves to the right as the image size becomes
smaller, allowing you to confirm the zoom position that can be used to capture still images without
image degradation before shooting at the current image size setting.
Small image size
• Digital zoom can be disabled from the Digital zoom option (A89) in the setup menu.

Step 4 Focus and Shoot
1
Press the shutter-release button
halfway, i.e., press the button
lightly until you feel a slight
resistance.
Basic Steps for Shooting and Playback
• When you press the shutter-release
button halfway, the camera sets focus
and exposure (shutter speed and aperture value). Focus and exposure remain locked
while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway.
• When a face is detected:
The camera focuses on the face framed by the double
border. When the subject is in focus, the double border
turns green.
1/ 250 F3.5
Shutter speed Aperture
value
• When a face is not detected:
The camera has nine focus areas, and automatically
selects the focus areas containing the subject closest to
the camera. When the subject is in focus, the focus
areas that are in focus (up to nine areas) glow green.
1/ 250 F3.5
Shutter speed Aperture
value
• When digital zoom is used, the focus area is not
displayed and the camera focuses at the center of the frame. Once focus has been
acquired, the focus indicator (A6) will glow green.
• While the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the focus area or focus indicator
may flash red. This indicates that the camera is unable to focus. Modify the
composition and press the shutter-release button halfway again.
2
Press the shutter-release button all the way,
i.e., press the button the rest of the way down.
• The shutter is released and the image will be recorded
to the memory card or internal memory.
• If you press the shutter-release button with too much
force, the camera may shake, causing images to be blurred. Press the button gently.

Step 4 Focus and Shoot
B
Note on Recording Images and Saving Movies
The indicator showing the number of exposures remaining or the indicator showing the maximum
movie length flashes while images are being recorded or while a movie is being saved. Do not open
the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover or remove the battery or memory card while an
indicator is flashing. Doing this could result in loss of data, or in damage to the camera or the
memory card.

Subjects Not Suitable for Autofocus
B
When the Subject Is Close to the Camera
If the camera cannot focus, try shooting with macro mode (A59) or in the Close-up scene mode
(A46).
B
Basic Steps for Shooting and Playback
Autofocus may not perform as expected in the following situations. In some rare cases, the subject
may not be in focus despite the fact that the focus area or the focus indicator glows green.
• Subject is very dark
• Objects of sharply differing brightness are included in the scene (e.g. the sun behind the subject
makes that subject appear very dark)
• No contrast between the subject and surroundings (e.g. a portrait subject, wearing a white shirt, is
standing in front of a white wall)
• Several objects are at different distances from the camera (e.g. the subject is inside a cage)
• Regular geometric patterns (e.g. window blinds or windows on a skyscraper)
• Subject is moving rapidly
In the situations noted above, try pressing the shutter-release button halfway to refocus several
times, or focus on another subject (A40). When focusing on another subject, be sure that the
alternate subject is at the same distance from the camera as the intended subject while the shutterrelease button is pressed halfway.
Note About Face Detection
See “Notes About the Face Detection Function” (A69) for more information.
C
Touch Shutter
At the default setting, the shutter can be released by simply tapping a subject in the monitor (A39)
without pressing the shutter-release button. The Touch shutter option can be changed to the
Touch AF/AE option, which allows the camera to set the focus and exposure on the subject that is
tapped on the monitor. When using the Touch AF/AE option, the image is taken by pressing the
shutter-release button.
C
AF-assist Illuminator and Flash
If the subject is poorly lit, the AF-assist illuminator (A89) may light up when the shutter-release
button is pressed halfway, or the flash (A55) may fire when the shutter-release button is pressed all
the way down.
C
To Make Sure You Do Not Miss a Shot
If you are concerned that you might miss a shot, press the shutter-release button all the way without
first pressing it halfway.

If the camera detects red-eye when an image is taken, the affected area is processed to reduce redeye before the image is saved.
Note the following when shooting:
• More time than usual is required to save images.
• Red-eye reduction may not produce the desired results in some situations.
• In extremely rare instances, areas not subject to red-eye may be affected by red-eye reduction
processing; in these cases, choose another flash mode and try again.

Face Detection
B
Notes About the Face Detection Function
• The camera may be unable to detect faces in the following situations:
- When faces are partially hidden by sunglasses or other obstructions
- When faces take up too much or too little of the frame
• When the frame includes more than one face, the faces detected by the camera and the face on
which the camera focuses depend upon a variety of factors, including the direction in which the
faces are looking.
• In some rare cases, such as those described in “Subjects Not Suitable for Autofocus” (A31), the
subject may not be in focus even though the double border turns green. Should this occur,
refocus on another subject positioned at the same distance from the camera as the actual portrait
subject (A40).
C
Notes About Images Including Detected Faces
Shooting Features
• When images in which a face was detected during shooting are played back, the images will be
automatically rotated for playback display according to the orientation of the face detected,
except pictures that were taken using Continuous, BSS, Multi-shot 16 (A39), or the subject
tracking function (A39).
• In full-frame playback mode, the image is enlarged with the detected face at the center of the
screen when the zoom control is rotated to g (i) or when the detected face is double-tapped
(A33), except pictures that were taken using Continuous, BSS, Multi-shot 16 (A39), or the
subject tracking function (A39).

Notes About Skin Softening
• More time than usual may be required to save an image when shooting with skin softening
function.
• In some shooting conditions, facial skin tones may not be softened or parts other than face may
be modified though the camera detects a face. If the desired results are not produced, set Skin
softening to Off and shoot again.
• The skin softening level cannot be adjusted when Portrait or Night portrait is selected in the
scene mode (including x Scene auto selector scene mode).

Notes About Autofocus for Movie Recording
• When A Single AF (default setting) is selected for Movie AF mode, focus is locked by
pressing the b (e movie-record) button to start recording (A85).
• Autofocus may not perform as expected (A31). Should this occur, try the following:
1. Set Movie AF mode to A Single AF (default setting) before starting movie recording.
2. Frame a different subject (positioned at the same distance from the camera as the intended
subject) in the center of the frame, press the b (e movie-record) button to start recording, and
then modify the composition.
Recording and Playing Back Movies
• Memory cards with an SD Speed Class rating of 6 or faster are recommended when recording
movies (A21). Movie recording may stop unexpectedly when memory cards with a lower Speed
Class ratings are used.
• When recording movies with N HD 720p (1280×720) selected for Movie options, the angle
of view (the area captured in the recorded movie) is smaller than when taking still pictures.
• You cannot change the optical zoom ratio once movie recording has started.
• While recording movies, you can operate the digital zoom by using the zoom control. The digital
zoom can magnify the image up to 4× the maximum optical zoom ratio.
• Digital zoom degrades image quality. When recording ends, digital zoom is disabled.
• In some cases, movie recordings may capture the sounds of the camera itself, such as those made
by the zoom control, autofocus, vibration reduction, or aperture control when the brightness
changes.
• Smear (F3) visible in the monitor with movie recording will be recorded with movies. Avoiding
bright objects such as the sun, reflections of the sun, and electric lights when recording movies is
recommended.
• When recording or playing back movies, colored stripes (interference patterns or moiré) may
appear on subjects that have a regular, repeating grid, such as pattern of weave in cloths or
windows in a building, depending on the shooting distance or zoom ratio. This phenomenon
occurs when the subject’s pattern interferes with the camera sensor grid, and it does not indicate
a malfunction.

• It may be impossible to register the desired subject, or the camera may be unable to track the
registered subject or may begin tracking a different subject, if the subject is moving rapidly, if
there is a significant amount of camera shake, or if the camera detects a similar subject. The
camera’s ability to accurately track the registered subject is also dependent upon the size and
brightness of the subject.
• In some rare cases, subjects with which autofocus may not perform as expected (A31) may be
out of focus despite the fact that the focus area glows green. In this situation, focus on another
subject which is at the same distance from the camera as the intended subject (A40).

X ISO Sensitivity
On the A (auto) mode shooting screen M Tap the d tab M X ISO sensitivity
The higher the sensitivity, the less light is needed to expose an image, allowing
capturing darker subjects.
Additionally, even with subjects of similar brightness, pictures can be taken at
faster shutter speeds, and blurring caused by camera shake and subject
movement can be reduced.
• Although higher ISO sensitivity is effective when shooting darker subjects,
shooting without the flash, shooting while using the zoom, etc., images may
contain noise.

W White Balance (Adjusting Hue)
On the A (auto) mode shooting screen M Tap the d tab M W White balance
The color of light reflected from an object varies with the color of the light source.
The human brain is able to adapt to changes in the color of the light source, with
the result that white objects appear white whether seen in the shade, direct
sunlight, or under incandescent lighting. Digital cameras can mimic this
adjustment by processing images according to the color of the light source. This is
known as “white balance.” For natural colors, choose a white balance setting that
matches the light source before shooting. Although the default setting, Auto, can
be used under most types of lighting, the white balance setting suited to a
particular light source can be specified manually to achieve more accurate results.

Technical Notes and Index
Maximizing Camera Life and Performance
To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the precautions
described below in addition to the warnings in “For Your Safety” (Avi-viii) when
using or storing the device.
The Camera
B
Keep Dry
The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.
B
Do Not Drop
The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shock or vibration.
B
Handle the Lens and All Moving Parts with Care
Do not apply force to the lens, lens cover, monitor, memory card slot or battery chamber. These
parts are easily damaged. Applying force to the lens cover could result in camera malfunction or
damage to the lens. Should the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid injury caused by
broken glass and to prevent the liquid crystal from the display touching the skin or entering the eyes
or mouth.
B
Do Not Point the Lens at Strong Light Sources for Extended Periods
Technical Notes and Index
Avoid pointing the lens at the sun or other strong light sources for extended periods when using or
storing the camera. Intense light may cause deterioration of the CCD image sensor, producing a
white blur effect in photographs.
B
Keep Away from Strong Magnetic Fields
Do not use or store this device in the vicinity of equipment that generates strong electromagnetic
radiation or magnetic fields. Strong static charge or the magnetic fields produced by equipment
such as radio transmitters could interfere with the monitor, damage data stored on the memory
card, or affect the product’s internal circuitry.
B
Avoid Sudden Changes in Temperature
Sudden changes in temperature, such as when entering or leaving a heated building on a cold day,
can cause condensation to form inside the device. To prevent condensation, place the device in a
carrying case or a plastic bag before exposing it to sudden changes in temperature.
B
Turn the Product Off Before Removing or Disconnecting the Power Source
or Memory Card
Do not remove the battery while the product is on, or while images are being recorded or deleted.
Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data or in damage to product
memory or internal circuitry.

Notes on Monitors
• Monitors and electronic viewfinders are constructed with extremely high precision; at least 99.99%
of pixels are effective, with no more than 0.01% being missing or defective. Hence while these
displays may contain pixels that are always lit (white, red, blue, or green) or always off (black), this is
not a malfunction and has no effect on images recorded with the device.
• White or colored streaks may be visible when bright subjects are framed in the monitor. This
phenomenon, known as “smear,” occurs when extremely bright light strikes the image sensor; it is
characteristic of image sensors and does not indicate a malfunction. Smear may also take the form
of partial discoloration in the monitor during shooting. It does not appear in images recorded with
the camera except in the cases of movies and of images recorded with Multi-shot 16 selected for
Continuous. When shooting in these modes, we recommend that you avoid bright subjects such
as the sun, reflected sunlight, and electric lights.
• Images in the monitor may be difficult to see under bright lighting.
• The monitor is lit by an LED backlight. Should the monitor begin to dim or flicker, contact your
Nikon-authorized service representative.
The Battery
F3
Technical Notes and Index
Be sure to read and follow the warnings in “For Your Safety” (Avi-viii) before use.
• Check the battery level before using the camera and replace or charge the battery if necessary. Do
not continue charging once the battery is fully charged as this will result in reduced battery
performance. Whenever possible, carry a fully charged spare battery when taking pictures on
important occasions.
• Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or above 40°C (104°F).
• Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F) before use.
• When charging the battery inserted into the COOLPIX S4400 using the Charging AC Adapter
EH-70P or a computer, the battery is not charged at battery temperatures below 0°C (32°F) or
above 45°C (113°F)
• Note that the battery may become hot during use; wait for the battery to cool before charging.
Failure to observe these precautions could damage the battery, impair its performance, or prevent
it from charging normally.
• On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. Be sure that the battery is fully charged
before heading outside to take pictures in cold weather. Keep spare batteries in a warm place and
exchange as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of its charge.
• Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning. Should the battery
terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry cloth before use.
• If the battery will not be used for some time, insert it in the camera and completely exhaust before
removing it for storage. The battery should be stored in a cool location with an ambient
temperature of 15°C to 25°C (59°F to 77°F). Do not store the battery in hot or extremely cold
locations.
• Always remove the battery from the camera or optional battery charger when it is not being used.
When inserted, minute amounts of current flow even when unused, and the battery may become
excessively drained and no longer function. Turning the camera on or off while the battery is
exhausted can result in reduced battery life.
• Recharge the battery at least once every six months and completely exhaust it before returning it
to storage.
• After removing the battery from the camera or optional battery charger, return the battery to the
battery case and store in a cool place.
Maximizing Camera Life and Performance
• A marked drop in the time a fully-charged battery retains its charge, when used at room
temperature, indicates that the battery needs to be replaced. Purchase a new EN-EL19 battery.
• Replace the battery when it no longer holds a charge. Used batteries are a valuable resource.
Please recycle used batteries in accordance with local regulations.
Charging AC Adapter
Be sure to read and follow the warnings in “For Your Safety” (Avi-viii) before use.
• The Charging AC Adapter EH-70P is for use only with compatible devices. Do not use with another
make or model of device.
• The EH-70P is compatible with AC 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz electrical outlets. When using in other
countries, use a plug adapter (available commercially) as necessary. For more information about
plug adapters, consult your travel agency.
• Do not, under any circumstances, use another make or model of AC adapter other than Charging
AC Adapter EH-70P or USB-AC adapter. Failure to observe this precaution could result in
overheating or in damage to the camera.
Memory Cards
Technical Notes and Index
• Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards” (A21)
for more information about memory cards.
• Observe the precautions noted in the documentation included with your
memory card.
• Do not affix labels or stickers to the memory card.
• When you use memory cards that have been used with other devices for the
first time, be sure to format them with this camera. We recommend formatting
new memory cards with this camera before using them with this camera.
• Note that formatting permanently deletes all images and other data on the
memory card. Be sure to make copies of any images you wish to keep before
formatting the memory card.
• If the message Card is not formatted. Format card? is displayed when the
camera is turned on, the memory card must be formatted. If there is data that
you do not want to delete, tap No. Copy the necessary date to a computer, etc.
If you want to format the card, tap Yes. The confirmation dialog will be
displayed. To start formatting, tap OK.
• Do not perform the following during formatting, while data is being written to
or deleted from the memory card, or during data transfer to a computer. Failure
to observe this precaution could result in the loss of data or in damage to the
camera or memory card:
- Open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover to remove/insert the
battery or memory card.
- Turn off the camera.
- Disconnect the AC adapter.
• Do not format the memory card using a computer.
F4
Cleaning and Storage
Cleaning
Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
Lens
Avoid touching glass parts with your fingers. Remove dust or lint with a blower
(typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one end that is
pumped to produce a stream of air out the other end). To remove fingerprints
or other stains that cannot be removed with a blower, wipe the lens with a soft
cloth, using a spiral motion that starts at the center of the lens and working
toward the edges. If this fails, clean the lens using a cloth lightly dampened
with commercial lens cleaner.
Monitor
Remove dust or lint with a blower. To remove fingerprints and other stains,
clean the monitor with a soft, dry cloth, being careful not to apply pressure.
Body
Use a blower to remove dust, dirt or sand, then wipe gently with a soft, dry
cloth. After using the camera at the beach or other sandy or dusty
environment, wipe off any sand, dust, or salt with a dry cloth lightly dampened
with fresh water and dry thoroughly. Note that foreign matter inside the
camera could cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Storage
