Nikon Coolpix 5700 5.0 Megapixel

  • Summary: I've had nothing but problems with this camera. I just had it repaired--again-- and again it turns off right after I take a picture.Given the cost of repair ($175), I will no longer send it to their Long Island facility and instead I will throw it in the trash. I am now researching Canon cameras.
