As the Canon PowerShot SD4500 IS basks within its asymmetrical, swanky architecture, the Nikon Coolpix S8100 appears like it means business. The camera sports a modest boxy design that fronts a little more bulk than the PowerShot SD4500 IS ACTUALLY. We also get plain Black, Red-colored, and Gold color choices, while the actual Canon offers stylish two-tone combinations. It's obvious how the Canon PowerShot SD4500 IS has the looks as the Nikon Coolpix S8100 has the exterior features.
For instance, look at the LCD screen about the Nikon Coolpix S8100. It's a 3-inch display having a 921, 000-pixel resolution. The LCD screen about the SD4500 IS is a 3. 5-inch widescreen, but only includes a 230, 000-pixel resolution, which is highly inadequate when compared to Coolpix S8100's. We also got an extremely fast framerate on the LCD once the shutter button was pressed halfway, so the Nikon Coolpix S8100 has among the best monitors in its class.
The Coolpix S8100 also offers a popup flash, which we preferred within the SD4500 IS's embedded flash because it's mounted farther from the lens, minimizing shadows. We get an ample zoom toggle wrapped round the shutter button, spinning control dial, as well as dedicated Video Record button. Both cameras support SD/SDHC/SDXC cards too. We preferred the Nikon Coolpix S8100's exterior design because was more functional, although the style points go to Canon.
