The 4500 has the swivel design of the Nikon 995, with a resoultion up to a maximum size of 2,272 x 1,704 pixels. SInce you are new to this area either would be a very good chice with some reviews saying the 4300 is as good but at a lesser price. The 4500 costs more and has a few more features. Check out.

(2002)In your situation either one would be good. I personally like the design of the 4500 plus it's optical zoom is 4x as opposed to the 3x for the 4300 and perhaps give you more to grow into. The features are very close and while either are good I read over the features which seem to give the 4500 the edge at a slightly higher cost. There are lots of good tools out there. Everyone will tell you a best model sometimes overwhemling you with advice. However, since you have done your homework and are getting ready to buy, get the one you feel comfortable with (rent if can) and stick with it.
Keep in mind your PC as this will need to grow as your camera needs and amount of shooting increases luck..
I'm wanting to find out what kind of camera and printer I will need to take professional digital photography. I currently have a hp digital camera and printer. But the quality of my pictures when I print them are not the greatest. They have lots of lines running through them. I would like to start doing some of the photography for holiday pictures and I want to be set up with the best quality equipment I can. Please help...
I'd suggest the 4500, briefly it's far more adaptable and has a lot of creative control possibilities, the 4300 is more of a point and shoot with some manual controls. I would think that the swivel body alone will allow more creative or different approaches because of the ease of getting to more difficult shooting angles/positions.
It's a little hard to tell just what might be causing you problems. Which camera are you using, what are your choices for resolution, etc. It may be that you are just shooting too low a resolution and high compression and trying to print too large.

Tonia, I use an Epson Stylus Photo 785 EPX and have absolutly no complaints. First of all the price was good, about $150. but the quality is great and service from Epson is unmatched by any other company I have ever done busness with. I had a small problem with it and it was within the first year so they just sent a brand new one. I did not even have to send the old one back first. I use it to down load all of my pics from my Cool Pix 880, which I also love.
I have an old KODAK DC120 Zoom Digital Camera. My problem is that I can't find a file converter program for my camera. Because it's old( I belive from 1994), they stoped to make upgrades for the software, and when I did e-mail them , they just told me I am sorry about....bla, bla, bla....
So I bought a easy card reader to read my flash memory cards...but I cant find the file converter program for MAC...
Anybody can help me out with this? I just ca't afford a new camera right now, because I need one with a good zoom! Thank you..
