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

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.
Summary: Resolution outstanding and worth the effort to learn the complicated controls. CCD failed and required two trips back to Nikon over 5 weeks to repair, now working OK, Nikon responsive on status via their email service support.
Summary: Anyone who values the following: 1. Portability - the compact solid construction is a bundle of joy. Also makes candid picture taking very easy - people tend to ignore smaller cams but react differently to a large SLR pointing at them. 2.
Summary: I bought one and I love it! The image quality that this little jewel produces is awesome. This one is fitted with a Nikkor 28-85 mm equivalent zoom lens and like all Nikkor lenses, it's sharp as a tack.
Summary: This is my second digital camera. (The first being a canon Elph) I have found it able to produce extraordinary results in some areas, but difficult, unpredictable, and cantankerous in others. Certainly, the sharpness and gigantic resolutions are wonderful.
Summary: I bought my CoolPix 5000 late December 2001 and have been shooting with it in various locations since then. I am globally pleased with the camera, but found its enveloppe of usage to be somewhat narrower than I was expecting.
Summary: First of all, digital photography is not the same as traditionaly photography. There is a slow response time on digital cameras actually taking a picture when the shutter release is pressed; this camera is quicker than most digitals that i have used.
