A nice, practical digital camera even after 10 years
28 May 2013
Summary: We are using these old cameras with a computer (and linux systems) for automatic monitoring of the Nature. The great list of useful and (now, in 2013, when this camera looks like quite an obsolete piece of equipment) very reasonable priced accessories (WC-68, FC-E8, TC-3ED etc.) makes this camera an ideal tool not only for such a purpose but even for inexpensive general photography.
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace this same model which I owned that malfunctioned. I have all the memory cards for this camera and other items and like camera so it made sense for me purchase.
Summary: with all of the available attachments, it is a good little work camera. Accessories such as the AA battery pack make this a good deal. I have located new in box stuff at B+H, Adorama etc for peanuts.
Great camera shame about the flash and close up work.

Summary: I won't go on about how good the camera is but here are three negative points:1. The flash sensor is so close to the hand grip that even with a small hand and fingers, I still at times accidentally cover the sensor with my finger! This means the picture will come out looking very dark even thought the flash was activated.2. I do a lot of close up work and find the autofocus has a mind of its own. Also the sharpness is not always as sharpe as I would like it.
Summary: I've owned this camera from new for over a year and i'm always impressed by the practicality and photo quality. The menu setup takes some getting used to but doesn't take that much effort to learn. OK the battery doesn't last ages but there small enough to carry another in your bag, along with your memory card. I've taken lots of different pics from night pics to motor sport and I’ve never been disappointed from what this camera is capable of.
Summary: Having recently purchased the 5000, My first impressions are that, the camera feels good, handles well and is fairly light in weight. The facilities it has is enough to keep anyone busy for some time. And once you have learned the basics everything else is easy. The quality of the lens is typical Nikkor quality, which produces some excellent pictures, However I wish Nikon had given it a greater focal length, my feeling is that I will have to buy a convertor just to get...
Summary: Ótima câmera, tanto p/uso amador no modo automático(P) como p/uso profissional explorando seus inúmeros recursos, inclusive c/uso de flash externo. A qualidade das fotos são imbatíveis, afinal é uma NIKON.
Pros: Cor preta, empunhadura, wide-28mm, LCD mpovel, praticidade de manuseio, grande variedade de controles, bateria, lentes, corpo resistente, sapata p/flash externo, qualidade imcomprável das fotos. Etc
