My favorite sneaky camera! With the swivel lens, you can hold the camera at waist level to shoot surreptitiously. Very quiet shooting and great shots!

What Nikon has to say about this camera:

Shoot from up high, down low-or anywhere in between. The Nikon COOLPIX 4500 offers a unique swivel lens design giving you the freedom to focus on your next shot, not your position. Frame subjects at eye level using the optical viewfinder, or from arm’s length with the full-color, high-resolution LCD monitor. Every picture is captured with true-to-life color thanks to Nikon’s high-performance 4x Optical Zoom-Nikkor Lens. Whether shooting as close as 3/4” from your subject or across long distances, its 4.0 effective Megapixel CCD delivers beautiful 2,272 x 1,704-pixel images for large-format printing. Full manual operation puts the experienced digital photographer in total control. Not sure of the settings to take the best picture? Select one of the COOLPIX 4500’s 16 pre-programmed Scene Modes, and take great pictures every time. More »
