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

Scot Angus "nicetempo.com", 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. In fact, the people at Penn Camera seemed to be surprised that I wanted to know exactly what work was done ("Nikon never gives that information").

Fragile

B. Cuzzillo, 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. As already stated by many other reviewers, the camera's features are great, but this camera is extremely fragile. I was most attracted by the high resolution as I often like to create large prints of a few vacation pics for wall framing.

Electronic Problems

Jerry Watson, Amazon
29 May 2002
  • Summary: I purchased the Nikon CoolPix 5000 camera in late March, 2002. Three weeks later the electronics went dead. The camera was returned to Nikon for service. Three weeks later it came back and two weeks after that the elctrronics failed again. It is now back in Nikon service. I have requested the camera be replaced with no response from Nikon.

Heaven Can Wait - But I can't

Robert, Amazon
19 February 2002
  • Summary: The Nikon 5000 missed the chance to become one of the best on the market, if it had not made one major mistake: it's to slow. A great picture captures the essence of the moment. For most amateur photographers the time delay aspect is of lessor importance, however a Coolpix 5000 customer should expect superior performance. The time delay is way too long between pressing the shutter button and recording the picture.

  • Summary: Hace tres años que tengo la camara, al segundo año se estropeo el sistema que guarda la memoria flash y tuve que llevarla al servicio tecnico, reparacion muy cara y lenta. Actualmente tengo problemas de tarjeta y tambien tarda en aparecer imagen, interruptor que sirve para ver las fotos realizadas funciona de vez en cuando y falla mucho. La proxima camara no sera Nikon.

  • Excerpt: Слабенькая оптика для аппарата такого класса, мотор практически ревет, не отключается встроенная вспышка, очень медленная фокусировка, снимать можно только при чувствительности до 200 ИСО, дальше - шумит, скорость съемки оставляет желать лучшего.
  • Pros: К сожалению, только удобство LCD
  • Cons: Слабенькая оптика для аппарата такого класса, мотор практически ревет, не отключается встроенная вспышка, очень медленная фокусировка, снимать можно только при чувствительности до 200 ИСО, дальше - шумит, скорость съемки оставляет желать лучшего.

Nikon Coolpix 5000

Arnt Eirik H., foto.no
3 December 2002
  • Conclusion: Siden kamera er et typisk hobby-kamera er prisen på drøyt 10000 alt for mye. En riktig pris burde være 5-6000,-.
  • Pros: Kamera er enkelt og lite, noe som gjør det enkelt å ta det med seg uten å slite skulderen av seg.
  • Cons: Som proffesjonell fotograf er man alltid avhengig av å se i søkeren når man fotograferer, noe som nesten er umulig på dette kamera. Autofokus og utløser er utrolig langsomt, og modellen har blunket mange ganger før kamera finner ut at det skal ta bildet.

Schlechte Bilder für viel Geld...!!! Nikon Coolpix 5000

rakutscher, Dooyoo
17 July 2002
  • Excerpt: Die Marke Nikon ist schon immer ein fester Begriff im Bereich der Photografie gewesen. Nikon bedeutet, dass man die besten Kameras von bester Qualität in den Händen hält. Genau richtig designt um hochwertige Photos zu schießen und nicht nur billige Schnellschüsse. Das spiegelt sich auf der anderen Seite aber auch im Preis der Kamera wieder. Für eine gute Nikon muss man lange sparen.
  • Pros: Die Nikon ist ein echtes Qualitätsprodukt. Zumindest von der Verarbeitung her.
  • Cons: Zu klein, zu dunkle Bilder und einfach zu teuer.
