  • 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 ...

  • 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
