I noticed that many of you use the CP 4500. I need to upgrade from my 990. Any comments or advice?

There are quite a few people on the board that have this camera, and the general concensus is that it is good - I've got the 2500 - but would love the 4500 - I don't think it is being made anymore -

your best bet would be to get a second hand one - i know TeAnne has one for sale at the moment on ebay.

If you want a new Coolpix 4500 they can still be had in Canada.

I don't know what they sold for in the U.S. but the price online at Henrys is $597.03 U.S. (not sure what taxes would be added) and $9.95 shipping. Henrys is a reputable camera chain in southern Ontario.

I bought mine a couple of months ago. At that time there was a $200 rebate for the 4500. I think the rebate ends this month, or may have already ended.

I love the 4500 for macro work for sure! I can't compare it to the 990 since I have never used it.

Thanks for the plug Lisa.
I've dropped the price yet again by $50. :(

I'm curious why you *need* to upgrade... I use both the 990 and 4500 and love the larger LCD on the 990. Is there something wrong with your 990?
