Excerpt: The absolutely-perfect-for-family digital camera has been born! I was skeptical regarding digital cameras because I thought you could always tell the difference between digital pictures and traditional (film) pictures.
Summary: This camera is just awesome! It takes great pictures, is easy to use, small enough to carry just about any place I go, and the customer service that came with it, is beyond wonderful. The guy has gone out of his way to make sure I was happy. And I am. Very happy!!!
Summary: I love my Nikon Coolpix 5900 however, the lens failed in less than one year. Service took 6 weeks to repair. The lens failed again after less than 10 days after repair. Why is the lens failing to open again? I absolutely hate the inconvenience of returning this item again for service although I do have a paid plan for it. Why can't warranty be fast, local and competent?
Summary: I bought this camera just under 12 months ago and recently the battery cover door would not stay closed. I sent it into Nikon along with my proof of purchase and about a week later got a letter saying it would not be covered under warranty. The repair charge with shipping and tax would be $115.22. I am the only person that uses this camera and it was never dropped or abused. Battery was only taken in and out maybe 4 or 6 times over the time I had it.
Summary: This review is for the Coolpix 5900 with 5MP. You will not be displeased with this camera if you are in the market for a compact digital camera. This little baby lies comfortably in your pocket until you want it and rarely fails to deliver, no matter what lighting obstacles you throw in it's path. The footprint is amazingly small for a 5MP and you'll be amazed at the functionality.
Summary: I was very disappointed in Nikon's service. This camera has a 2in LCD display that apparently is very fragile. When I returned for service, Nikon claimed I dropped it... which I didn't! I was very careful in handling this camera, but the fragile LCD still broke. To be blamed by the manufacturer was really disappointing. They offered to repair it for $210, nearly the price of a new camera. I will NEVER by a Nikon product again.
Summary: This is my third digital camera after a Ricoh very early model that is less than 1 mega pixels and Nikon D1 SLR. I bought this one mainly because it's almost impossible to use the D1 on every occasion we like to take pictures of our little boy who is only 2. The D1 with a zoom lens is way too bulky, heavy and sometimes hard to use for my wife. She loves this Coolpix camera. With 5.1 mega pixels, the picture quality is very good for family photo albums.
Summary: I purchased this camera in June 2005 but suddently, its USB port develped fault and computer does not recogize it as USB device. I am sending it back to Nikon for repairs/replacement as it is still under warranty. Hope they fix/return to me promptly. Addition: I shipped the camera to Nikon and they fixed and returned it to me without charge. I am happy with Nikon's support.
