  • 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 colours) plus above average resolution. Purple fringing is down but the overall look of the image is still very 'Coolpix'.
  • 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 body than you think, big 8x lens fully retracts into camera, Good macro capability considering the lens zoom range, Fast operation, good shot to shot times (especially in Quick ...
  • 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 and no AF assist lamp, Average battery life, Manual focus mode is now missing a distance readout, Command dial - two clicks for outside camera settings, one click in menus - c...

The Luminous Landscape

  • Conclusion: Whether a photographer can find happiness with the Coolpix 5700 depends in large measure on the type of photography that’s going to be done with it. As I reported earlier — for most people image quality is more than acceptable, so this isn’t where my concerns lie. It’s the operational issues that are the most disconcerting. So let’s look at several shooting applications where one might use such a camera.

  • 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. The 5000 wasn't the dream camera everyone was expecting from Nikon.
  • 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 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. This makes it an ideal model for those interested in wildlife, reportage or sports photography. I just got this camera even thou it's old model but I still like it the function and compact size of it... is Perfect for me.

15 July 2004
  • 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: 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. La qualité d'image est excellente mais l'autofocus du bridge semble moins à l'aise en basse lumière.
  • Pros: Zoom optique 8x, Qualité d'image, Modes manuels complets
  • Cons: viseur électronique, Flash un peu juste, Autofocus parfois défaillant en basse lumière
