Question about Nikon Coolpix 4100 Digital Camera

3 Answers

Picture delete process

I have a coolpix 4100 that has no manual (it was given to me without a manual). I understand that I can delete pictures but I have no idea how to do it. It is at 310 pics and I assume I must be getting close to filling the memory. Can you give me a quick lesson in how to delete so that I will have at least a few shots left for a wedding I am attending tomorrow?

Hey waynetta,
The first thing you need to do is transfer your images to a computer, and then you need to format your card which will get rid of all the images on your memory card. Make sure you format the card in the camera and not with the computer. I have included a link to the camera manual below. To transfer your images you probably are going to need the software that came with the camera called Picture Project installed on your computer first. Once that is done transfer your images by following the instructions on page 45 of the manual, and then format your memory card by following the instructions on page 93 of the instruction manual.**&p_li=&p_topview=1

First turn the unit on and then hit the play button (looks like a triangle inside a square). This will let you browse through the pictures you have taken using the left and right arrows. Once you come to a picture that you want to delete hit the Trash can button (It looks like a basket with the lid flying off) that is located on the back, in the bottom right corner near the lcd. When you do this it will ask you to confirm the deletion. Use the arrow key to select the menu and confirm by pressing the button in the center of the arrows. This link at the bottom of this post provides you with a downloadable version of the manual.
Please rate me well if this was helpful to you. Let me know if you have any questions.
Take Care,

Have a Nikon coolpix 4100 and cannot figure out from the manual how to use the self-timer feature.????

On the selector dial press the left arrow next to the clock icon. This brings up the timer selector. Press the down arrow to select on and then select. This sets the timer. Now position your camera and press the shutter button. There is a 10 second delay between pressing the shutter button and the picture being taken. If you want to take another picture with the timer, you have to reset it.

I have pictures on the memory of my camera and I can't figure out how to get them to the card. When I scroll the menu to copy it will not allow me to select this option. I aslo don't understand why these...

To have pictures in the memory of your computer you have either taken photos without a memory card installed or accidentally copied them to your camera's memory.
To copy them to your memory card, you need to have the memory card inserted. Put the camera in view mode, press menu, select copy and select the first option.
