Okay but had issues

Wookieman, Amazon
31 January 2015
  • Summary: It's a good camera but was used it and had issues that the seller was not aware of as it was not fully tested in my opinion and I had to return and bought a new P&S camera with similar features made by another manufacturer.

A good little camera

Greg Jenkins, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: This camera definitely has some issues, namely slow operational speed, (focusing and write times), which at first frustrated me, but it also has some compelling good points which is why I bought one, (even 12 years after it was released and I being fully aware of it's drawbacks having read the...

Great camera

Donna, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this same camera new several years ago and it quit working. I could only find two places who were willing to look at it and both are out of state. The cost of the new purchase was less than the shipping, insurance and minimum fee to diagnose the repair on my old camera.

  • Excerpt: I got one of these cameras in june 2006, and compared to today's standards this Nikon might look as an antique. Still, it has some valuable good points. Firts, the build quality is great, better than some D-SLR which I used.

Still a great camera

Jerry Jackson Jr., Amazon
14 July 2005
  • Summary: Even in mid 2005 the Nikon Coolpix 5000 is a remarkable digital camera. In skilled hands this camera can produce results that rival even today's best professional digital cameras. I've made several 16x20 prints from images taken with the Coolpix 5000 that look AMAZING.

  • Excerpt: This camera is old (now in 2005), slow, and not easy to use unless you're very familiar with the way advanced digital cameras work. On the bright side, the image quality out of this bad boy is as good as (or better than) any digital camera still on the market (as of late April 2005).

  • Excerpt: I am an architect so I shoot mainly architecture at an amateur level and project documentation. For this I need wide angle. At the time (spring 2003) there were only 2 alternatives: Minolta Dimage 7 and Coolpix 5000. dslr-s were not affordable then.

Can't See in the Dark

Gearsmith, Amazon
29 November 2004
  • Summary: I have had this camera for a while now, and I have taken some excellent pictures with it. I use a Macintosh, and it works with the computer beautifully, in contrast with the Olympus camera that I owned previously. The adjustable screen is nice and the zoom suits my needs.

  • Excerpt: I bought my first 5000 for $550 and my second for $275. The camera is now available for around $300 used. Have enjoyed using this model. But the instruction book is very difficult to understand. It has taken me several months to feel comfortable with the complexities of this camera.
