Nikon Coolpix 5200

PC Magazine
9 December 2004
  • Conclusion: There's a lot to like about this camera. It's small, handy, and stylish, and it's jammed with great features. It takes reasonably sharp images, but exposure and color-accuracy problems keep the Coolpix 5200 from receiving top honors.
  • Pros: Small, solid, and stylish. Flash shots are well exposed. Powerful features (in-camera red-eye fix, last-five-shot buffer, best-shot selector, etc.).
  • Cons: Small LCD. Daylight shots tend to be underexposed. Minor color-accuracy issues. Menus can be confusing.

  • Conclusion: The Coolpix 5200 is a little gem of a camera that proves Nikon is not merely dabbling in consumer-level cameras, and it's the best proper compact they've produced in years. Design, build and ease of use are excellent, and there is a surprising amount of power hidden in the well-designed menus,...
  • Pros: Excellent resolution - especially for an ultra-compact, Clean images with only moderate noise levels, Good white balance (except under incandescent light), Realistic color, Very compact, excellent build quality, Pretty fast operation, Huge range of 'hand-holding' features for the novice, Best Sho...
  • Cons: Images look soft (though they respond well to unsharp masking), Images can be over-contrasty - muddy shadows (again, the detail is there but needs fixing in Photoshop), Occasional focus problems at the long end of the zoom, Finest quality JPEG is still quite heavily compressed, Too many button pr...

Absolut Photo
19 January 2005
  • Excerpt: Nikon présente deux appareils photo compacts que l'on peut qualifier de jumeaux : le coolpix 4200 et le coolpix 5200. La seule différence vient du capteur puisque pour le premier est de 4 mégapixels et pour le second de 5 mégapixels.
  • Pros: Qualité d'optique, Elégant et compact, Facilité d'utilisation et rapidité
  • Cons: trop peu de différences entre le 4200 et le 5200

8 October 2004
  • Conclusion: В целом, Nikon 5200 - очень удобная цифровая камера с нормальной ценой (средняя стоимость камеры составляет 460 долларов). Неплохая по качеству матрица, множество сюжетных программ, простое управление, а также возможность использования карт памяти формата SD наверняка привлекут к данной модели...

  • Summary: Модель Nikon CoolPix 5200 оборудована приличной для таких аппаратов 1/1,8-дюймовой CCD-матрицей (а не 1/2,5-дюймовым эрзац-вариантом). В полном соответстии с автоматической сутью аппарата, в модели Coolpix 5200 не предусмотрена запись снимков в несжатых форматах вроде TIFF или RAW, в наличии только...
