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.

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.

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.

"System Control" Failed after a year: $244 Nikon repair

Scot Angus, Amazon
25 October 2003
  • Summary: Except for it being unresponsive (by the time it's ready to shoot, the moment is gone) it's been a good camera for the 16 months I've had it... but it failed recently, and Nikon had little to say about why, how, or how I could prevent it from happening again.

Give you greatest satisfaction

Tadashi Kobayashi "caxton", Amazon
27 September 2003
  • Summary: I am one of many people who recommend this camera. I used many digital cameras including SONY and Olympus camera and got no good impression from those. My recommendation comes from the granularity of pictures taken. Pictures of other cameras found to be deteriorated when magnified using Photoshop.

A sub $1000 pro-sumer camera, despite Nikon's marketing.

Dave Larkin, Amazon
11 March 2003
  • Summary: The features mimic, and the performance matches, the best of Nikon SLR cameras. The lense quality is exceptional, and veratile. The one-star off is for the accessories and battery life. Expect to buy 3rd party lense hoods, an add-on battery with more life, and extra memory.

Broken down twice

Richard S. Corzatt, Amazon
2 January 2003
  • Summary: My Coolpix 5000 has broken down twice in the last year. I treat all my photo equipment with great care so this is no fault of my own. The first time I sent the Coolpix 5000 in for repair - the camera froze up and wouldn't operate - Nikon repair couldn't fix it and sent me a new one.

Fragile

Amazon
8 December 2002
  • Summary: As an owner of a Nikon SLR for years with no problems, my first choice in choosing a digital camera was to go with Nikon again. After one year with the Coolpix 5000, let's just say that I'm no longer a happy Nikon customer.
