  • Summary: Heavily overpriced, don't get what you pay for, too many drawbacks and Nikon hasn't fixed any of them.
  • Pros: Good picture quality in daylight 8x Optical zoom
  • Cons: Auto-focus Low-light pictures Underexposes Laggy Poor button layout Annoying UI

This camera will drive you insane!

Bill, Amazon
23 June 2003
  • Summary: I read the user warnings: impossible low light autofocus, poor manual focus with no distance indicator, battery eater, buttons on the side can't be found when you need them but always hit by accident, no filter threads. I thought, "It's a Nikon. Must be operator problems." I was wrong. This camera has a good flash and works well with Nikon external flash units, but there's a catch. The camera will not focus under conditions when you normally need a flash!

Maybe I Got A Lemon

B. Mullins "Digital Rebel", Amazon
21 September 2002
  • Summary: After reading all of the reviews, I had high expectations for this camera. While the menus are very complicated, and seemingly needlessly so, they can be mastered. But the camera doesn't seem to be able to easily retain settings, despite following the manual as closely as possible. Battery life is quite short, despite not using the LCD screen or flash, and I couldn't find anyone that has additional batteries in stock.

Good BUT NOT good enough!

Jim Gregory, Amazon
1 February 2004
  • Summary: Having been a pro/am photographer for over 40 years I bought many of the early digital cameras and other Nikon models. After careful consideration of other brands, I purchased the 5700 (via Amazon) and at first I was very impressed. The optical zoom is wonderful and the other features are outstanding.

  • Excerpt: l'appareil avait un défaut, il suffisait juste de l'envoyer en réparation chez nikon (c'était gratuit car c'était un défaut de l'appareil). C'était juste pour info.

  • Summary: Wij begrijpen uw teleurstelling dat uw camera wederom defect is? Kunt u ons vertellen wat eerder aan uw camera defect was? De coolpix 5700 is zeker geen storings gevoelige camera. Volgens nikon service point <info@nikonsevice.nl> Het wederom: geen beeld op de vieuwer en opklapscherm, voor de 3x. Het heen en weer mailen naar info@nikonservice.nl CCD of sluiterfout, nikon weet wel wat er gaande is. De oude kwaliteit van nkon is GONE.
  • Pros: ?

  • Summary: In september 2004 kocht ik deze camera en na een oefenperiode was ik tevreden. In okt.2006 had ik de camera nodig voor een foto binnen. De flitser liet het afweten. Bleek een defect aan de camera. Ook wereldwijd blijkt het een euvel van dit type camera te zijn. De leverancier gaf niet thuis garantietermijn verlopen. De Nikon importeur wil graag 180 euro voor de reparatie. 30% van de nieuwwaarde. Graag reactie van mensen met zelfde probleem.
  • Pros: geen
  • Cons: flitser

CCD quemado tambieén

  • Summary: Hola a todos Yo tambien compré una Coolpix 5700 por un pastón superior a los 1000 € en el año 2003 y en estos momento sufro de CCD quemado. La cámara dejo de funcionar sin previo aviso, más que unos cuantos pixels calientes. La puse en marcha después de dos diás sin utilizarla, en interior, sin calor y todos los cuidados habituales y simplemente no capturaba imagen del exterior.

je suis déçu

  • Excerpt: J'ai acheté cette appareil neuf, il y a environ 3 ans (le prix était d'environ 1000 euros), j'ai fait de belles photos : portraits, paysages, macros. Par contre, toujours eu des difficultés sur des objets en mouvements (voitures, sports équestres¿) avec le même réglage dans les mêmes conditions à quelques secondes d'intervalles la photo peut être impeccable ou complètement ratée.
