Summary: very happy and satisfied. doing a job at the wildlife refuge and i got to seeing a lot of people taking pictures of birds so i decided i would try it so i bought me a nikon 5400 off ebay to start off taking pictures of birds it worked well for what the camera was design for but not like the ones with the hogh powered zooms. so im happy with it. i carry it every where i go now so i can take picture at random.
Summary: It was exactly as described and works great! I'm really excited about taking my photos! I bought this product to begin to take photos of my cosplay progress and cosplays in general and I have great intuition that it'll get the job done!
Almost perfect.... but time between shooting pics at 5.1 MP way too slow.

Summary: PROS-Packed with features so much so that you may never use them all, excellent image quality, awesome 28mm equivalent lens for group shots and up close, able to use accessory flash on hot shoe, ease of operation. CONS- Only one...... when set to HIGH MP (5.1), it takes too long to be ready for the next shot especially if you're using the flash so if you are shooting sports or want to take a succession of pics, you have to set the camera to 2 or 1 MP which is far lower...
Summary: I bought this old but high-quality camera as the cheapest and easiest way to get into time-lapse photography. It's going to be work for my project. For a $50 investment and $4 for a power supply I can now do my project. -- I'm not sure if I can get the flash to light in the time-lapse mode. The images are smaller than modern cameras but adequate for my needs. I'm very happy with this camera.
Its better to get yesterdays top of the line camera :)

Summary: I love Nikon for cameras. A few years ago, this was a very expensive camera. I bought this for a family member for Christmas. It was a great way to give an armature photographer a high end camera to "try out" photography without spending tons of money. They love it!! If they keep loving it and using it, I can justify upgrading to a new Nikon in the future. This camera made the "gamble" process a no brainer!
Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix 5400 is not a simple camera to use. I don't like the fact that you have to change the settings everytime you go outside or inside etc. I wish there was just one auto mode. I definately hate the fact that you have to charge the camera quite often even if the camera has not been in use. I boght the camera last year at costco when it was $499.00. I don't this digital camera at all!
