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.

Great camera, problems with CCD

John Hulburt, Amazon
3 December 2002
  • 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.

Who should buy Nikon Coolpix 5000

Shikharesh Das, Amazon
9 November 2002
  • 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. 28- 85 mm lens - contrary to most people pitcing their money for longer zooms, the wider angle is more used in daily life - try shooting your birthday party at home with 35-100 mm zooms -they are useless.

Very Good Camera For The money

Hugh K. Boyd, Amazon
10 July 2002
  • 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. The color saturation is fantastic and it takes great black and white shots as well (if you really want to have some fun get an infra red filter play around with it a bit). And it is absolutely fantastic with macro shots!!!

charming, but difficult

John C. Moore, Amazon
10 March 2002
  • 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. However, I have found that its' auto-focusing mechanism seems somewhat unreliable in the macro-mode when compared to the Canon that I was using previously.

Very good camera for natural light photography

Bernard Languillier, Amazon
17 February 2002
  • 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. As a foreword, I should say that, this being my first digital camera, as well as my first compact camera, I don't have any other obvious reference to compare it to.

Great design that fits comfortably in your hand.

  • Summary: I traded up from a Canon Digital Elph (which was a real nightmare to use and had horrible resolution) to the Nikon CP 5000. The two cameras are like night and day. It is true thast the Nikon is 3 times the price of the Elph. However, the Nikon is easy to operate and the picture quality is super fine.

Nikon excellence ?

Farnsworth M. Dye "Butch Dye - USA", Amazon
12 January 2002
  • 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...
