A nice, practical digital camera even after 10 years

miloszahradnik, Ebay

  • 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.

Great camera

Donna, Amazon

  • 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. I already have a ton of accessories and lenses for this model so purchasing it seemed to be a reasonable solution.

  • 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.

Give you greatest satisfaction

Tadashi Kobayashi "caxton", Amazon

  • 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. Coolpix 5000 gives clear images even when magnified to 800%! That granularity proves and certifies the sharpest image ever achieved in digital cameras.

Nikon's Reputation Remains Intact!

Farnsworth M. Dye "Butch Dye - USA", Amazon
30 May 2002
  • Summary: I have recently purchased a Nikon Coolpix 5000 from Amazon. And I am totally amazed. The picture quality is GREAT! However, if you are looking for a "Point and Shoot" camera right out of the box--then forget about it! To really appreciate the beauty of this camera, then "YOU MUST TAKE TIME TO READ THE MANUAL"! The Nikon is full of "Bells and whistles", and if you skip the manual then you will miss the feats that this camera is capable of.

Extremely Surprised

Wild Kat "sunblazer", Amazon
12 May 2002
  • Summary: I recently purchased the Nikon Coolpix 5000, my first digital camera, and am very impressed with the ease of use and the results of the images. This camera has a ton of functions and you need time to learn how to maniplate the aperture and shutter speed, if you want manual control. The flash that is built in does the job, without red-eye, which has been a criticism of this design.

Very Cool Camera

Dan Butler, Amazon
9 March 2002
  • Summary: I bought this camera primarily for archetecural shots and interior design. I am very pleased with the resolution, clarity and functionality. Nikon has gotten rid of that pesky little bug that shut the camera down if you started it without removing the lens cap and now what we have is a very nearly professional grade product.

Great camera for advanced users

Roy W. Latham, Amazon
14 February 2002
  • Summary: For me, the main past failings of digital cameras have been the lack of resolution and the lack of wideangle capability. With 5+ mpixels, the Nikon 5000 is finally up with 35mm film, especially after considering that a 35mm frame must be cropped to achieve the standard 5:4 image shape of the 5000. The 28mm equivalent of the low end of the zoom is not bad, and with the wideangle adapter it is really there.

Terrific digital camera

KSG "ksgnyc", Amazon
9 January 2002
  • Summary: I bought this digital camera primarily to take pictures of my 16 month old daughter. The major things I was looking for in a digital camera were (1) high quality photos, (2) fast auto focus (so that I can capture my always-on-the-move daughter), and (3) ease of use. I also wanted a camera that had some additional options besides auto-focus. The Coolpix 5000 is fabulous on all of these accounts.
