  • Excerpt: Picking out the best digital camera from the massive selection on offer can be intimidating. So it's easy to understand why well-known, market leading brands such as Nikon have such a die-hard following.

  • Excerpt: The Coolpix 5900 and 7900 ($350 and $450 respectively) are the upper-end models in Nikon's point-and-shoot line of cameras. They're upgrades to the Coolpix 5600 and 7600, with these being the major differences between the models:
  • Pros: Very good photo quality (with sharpness adjusted), Compact metal body, Tons of scene modes, Useful D-Lighting, Best Shot Selector, redeye reduction features, Good redeye test results (probably due to above), AF-assist lamp, LCD "gains up" in low light, Great VGA movie mode, In-camera help system (though it could be better), Optional underwater case, Above average battery life; support for disposable Duracell CP1 battery, if you can find one
  • Cons: Images a little soft at default settings; some corner blurriness, Manual controls, at least over shutter speed, are needed, Sluggish flash recharge time, Live histogram only available (briefly) by adjusting exposure compensation, No exposure info in playback mode, Only 13.5MB on built-in memory, Door over battery compartment too easy to open

[ REVIEW — Nikon Coolpix 5900 ]

7 July 2011
  • Excerpt: : $600 : 4.5 : Nikon has just released a pair of cameras in the superior point-and-shoot category, the Coolpix 5900 and the Coolpix 7900. The two cameras are identical except for the pixel count — the 7900 has a 7 megapixel sensor and the 5900 has 5. The extra pixels cost another $200.
  • Pros: There are no user controls over shutter speed and aperture, although the scene selector provides a pseudo control. ISO speeds are set through the menu and picture review, exposure compensation, flash mode and macro are all easily accessible from buttons on the back of the camera. The Coolpix 5900 is pretty and small, just on the edge of being too small to be useable. This is not a camera for people with pudgy fingers. In use the camera is exceptionally capable. Focus ...

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix 5900 is a compact, stylish and easy to use digital camera that produces great image quality. Noise and chromatic aberrations were both very well controlled, with only ISO 400 exhibiting a visible level of noise and hardly any evidence of purple fringing or other unwanted effects. The Nikon Coolpix 5900 also has some new features that aim to make the photographer's life easier, some of which work better than others.

  • Summary: Building on the successes of the previous models, the Nikon CoolPix 5900 is an outstanding all-round package. It's small and fast enough for the point-and-click market, but packs enough helpful technology into its sleek metal exterior to push your photography in more creative directions, too.

  • Summary: Compact, light and easy to use, Nikon's Coolpix 5900 has the same grip as the Coolpix 5200 and 4200 models but sports a larger, 2-inch LCD screen. The sensor appears to be the same as the 5200's but Nikon has redesigned the Graphic User Interface (GUI) so users can select functions on the main menu by either name or icon. This helps to reduce the excessive toggling required to set some functions on the Coolpix 5200.

Röviden: Nikon Coolpix 5900

23 November 2007
  • Summary: A jó fotó mindenkinek mást jelent, de vannak olyan jellemzők, mint például a piros szemek, amiket senki sem lát szívesen a képein. A Nikon is felismerte ezeket a problémákat, így a felbontás és a zoom növelésén túl ezekre a "mellékes" szolgáltatásokra is egyre több figyelmet fordítanak. A Coolpix 5900 a Nikontól megszokott képminőség mellett több ilyen aprósággal igyekszik biztosítani, hogy minden kép a lehető legjobb legyen.

  • Excerpt: A questo punto, distinguere una macchina compatta tra cento modelli si trasforma in un lavoro abbastanza difficile. Già in molti aspetti, la Nikon Coolpix 5900 è una fotocamera digitale in più. Malgrado ciò, le sue buone qualità risaltano nonostante i suoi difetti, qualcosa che la trasforma, per iniziare, in una pratica fotocamera adatta ad ogni tipo di pubblico.
  • Pros: ottima qualità di immagine, rapidità di risposta, buone rifiniture, facilità di maneggio, display di buona visibilità…
  • Cons: autofocus un po' impreciso, obiettivo limitato in distanze focali e luminosità, autonomia un po' giusta...

  • Excerpt: D'une grande élégance, le Coolpix 5900 équipé d'un capteur de 5 Mpxl vous permettra de faire de belles impressions. Le zoom Nikor 3x couvrant la focale 38 114mm en 35mm donne de très bon résulat notament grace au nouveau verre ED. Le 38mm reste tout de même un peu juste pour un grand angle. Il est équipé du nouveau system de D-Lighting qui permet d'éclaircir les zones sous exposées, attention tout de même car cette nouvelle fonction apporte plus de bruit.
  • Pros: Bonne gestion du bruit, Mode manuel
  • Cons: Pas de mode manuel
