Excerpt: I bought my Coolpix back in 2002. I have taken literally more than 100,000 digital photos. I had to send my camera back to Nikon the first month because the lens got jammed. I sent it in and got it back within 10 days. No charge. I was very …
Summary: I bought this camera after many years of owning a Nikon FM-2. This camera and those like it fill a gap for those who do not want to invest in a Digital SLR system. Yet have some control over the camera. If you can get by with 5 Megapixles this is a good camera.
Summary: If you are attracted to the Coolpix 5700 by the attractive price, you should keep in mind that this SLR-type digital camera first came out 2.5 years ago, which in digital photography chronology was more like the days when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. The 5700 is by no means an incapable camera.
Great Results, Inadequate Flash, Difficult Service!!!

Summary: My family fulfilled a dream Christmas, 2003 when they gave me the Nikon Coolpix 5700. Upsides: 1. This camera delivers fantastic results. 2. It feels good in the hand. 3. It's compact for its power. 4. Good price for the quality. Downsides: 1. The built-in flash is a joke. It's way under-powered. 2.
Summary: After reading these reviews I am starting to wonder if we are even discussing the same camera; people either love it or hate it. I am of the former persuasion: I really love this camera. No, it's not perfect, but all in all it is the best digital non-SLR machine I've ever used.
Summary: Before you begin reading, if you are thinking of buying the 5700 or the 8700. Don't. The Nikon D70 is out and nothing can compare to a true SLR. If you still want to read go ahead. Having shot close to 5,000 pictures with this camera, take my word for it, the Coolpix 5700 is an excellent camera.
Summary: Using this camera for the past 7 months. Taken app. 850 photos till date. No issues what so ever and excellent photo quality. But you need to buy an additional battery -- which would have been the case with any camera with chargeable batteries.
Summary: I purchased my Nikon Coolpix 5700 just before our October trip to experience the New England foliage. Wow, just in time! This is a wonderful camera in every sense of the word. I'll give you the good and then the bad.
Summary: I will try and keep this one fairly short. I've had this camera for about six months now and absolutely love it. I have a pro SLR so I do not use this camera with the intent of taking prize winning photos, although in some cases it could. This is a very handy little camera.
AN OUTSTANDING CAMERA - NOTHING COMES CLOSE IN ITS PRICE RNG

Summary: This is a very sophisticated camera that appeals to the affluent casual user & the pro-sumer - hence the spectrum of ratings ( its really too sophisticated for the casual user - & has annoyances for the semi-pro user ). This camera is a VERY sophisticated - feature rich camera.
