DP Review
9 July 2003
  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Nikon Coolpix 5700: (5 megapixel prosumer) With its eight times optical zoom the 5700 becomes an extremely practical 'shoot anything' camera. Image quality is excellent, with that great matrix metering, good tonal balance and colour (accurate and vivid without blowing out...
  • Pros: Excellent metering, great neutral color response, above average resolution, Control over internal processing algorithm parameters: contrast, saturation, sharpness, Relatively low ISO 100 noise, Very clever 'Quick Response' shutter release mode, Excellent build quality, full metal case, Smaller bo...
  • Cons: Some lens barrel distortion at wide angle and some pincushion distortion at telephoto, Average startup times (due to the extending lens), Video camera like clipping of highlights ('video camera' look to some images), Magenta and Yellow Bayer artifacts sometimes visible, Poor low light Auto Focus ...

  • Excerpt: Last year, one of the most anticipated digital cameras was the Nikon Coolpix 5000 (see our review). The expectations for the 5000 were tremendously high, and given Nikon's reputation for making top-notch cameras, that's not surprising. When the 5000 arrived, it hit with a thud, rather than a bang.
  • Pros: All the manual controls you'll ever need, 8X optical zoom lens, Excellent photo quality, Superb macro ability, CompactFlash Type II slot - Microdrive works fine, Handy swiveling LCD, Hot shoe for external flash, RAW and TIFF file formats
  • Cons: LCD is too small; limited viewing angle, Poorly placed power switch and left-side controls, No manual focus ring, Proprietary battery costs a lot and doesn't last long, especially with Microdrive, Included 16MB memory card way too small, Expensive

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix 5700 is the first 5.0 effective megapixel digital camera to incorporate an 8x optical zoom lens. The 9-72mm Zoom-Nikkor (equivalent to 35-280mm in 35mm photography) is an all glass optic that includes two glass-molded ED lens elements and Nikon Super Integrated Coating.

  • Summary: The 5700 is compact and packed with features, and it’s speedy, easy to use and smartly designed. The thing that really sets it apart from the crowd, though, is the zoom length, which goes to a whacking 280mm.

  • Excerpt: Le Nikon coolpix 5700 est un des meilleurs bridge 5 mégapixels. Son zoom optique 8x et le fait qu'il soit complètement debrayable en manuel sont ses principaux atouts. A noter également qu'il est possible de sauvegarder ses réglages personnalisés.
  • Pros: Zoom optique 8x, Qualité d'image, Modes manuels complets
  • Cons: viseur électronique, Flash un peu juste, Autofocus parfois défaillant en basse lumière

  • Conclusion: Nikon heeft met deze CoolPix 5700 een sublieme camera met een prachtige lens op de markt gebracht. We konden slechts een technisch minpunt ontdekken en dat is de weergavekwaliteit van het LCD-schermpje in de oculairzoeker. Helaas is hij ook duur en dat drukt zijn prijs/kwaliteit.
  • Pros: belichting, 8X zoomlens, ergonomie
  • Cons: slecht LCD-scherm in oculairzoeker

Kipróbáltuk: Nikon Coolpix 5700

Pixinfo
29 June 2003
  • Summary: A Nikon nemrégiben egyszerre három új gépet jelentett be. Ezek közül már kipróbáltuk a legkisebb, 2 Mpixeles Coolpix 2000-t. Most a legnagyobb, 5 Mpixeles, 8x-os zoomra alkalmas gépet vizsgáljuk meg.
  • Pros: Nagy zoomtartományú optika, Jó fényerejű objektív, Alacsony képzaj, Vakupapucs, Kihajtható, elforgatható LCD, Kiváló makróképesség, RAW formátum támogatása, MicroDrive kompatibilis, Beégett részeket villogtató hisztogram
  • Cons: AF segédfény hiányzik, Jól látható torzítás nagylátószög esetén, Nehezen használható kézi fókusz, LCD mérete kicsi, Kicsi akkumulátor kapacitás

  • Excerpt: Bisher hatte Nikon keine Digitalkamera mit stärkerem Zoomfaktor als 4-fach im Programm, während Firmen wie Canon, Casio, Olympus, Fujifilm, Minolta und Sony schon seit mehr oder weniger langer Zeit zumindest ein zoomstarkes Modell anbieten.
