I am sending it back to Nikon for repairs/replacement as it is still under warranty. Hope they fix/return to me promptly.

Awful at Night

Ahmed A. Alhakbani, Amazon
11 December 2005
  • Summary: Day light pictures are superb! but a big (-ve) is at night, you wont be able to take pictures with the flash, and if you dont use the flash you'll need the tripod. It could have been better ..

An excellent starter camera, but I personally would wait for Nikon's new models coming out soon.

R. Hiranaka, Amazon
29 September 2005
  • Summary: I bought this camera for an international trip. It did its job well, except in cases of low lighting and in museums. When it is unable to use its flash (in lower light than daylight) the picture quality tends to deteriorate substantially. Also I wish it had more than 3X optical zoom when it came to landscapes. Overall though I enjoyed this camera, and it worked well for me.

Good only in very bright sunshine

L.Qu, Amazon
19 August 2005
  • Summary: Pros: Takes great picture in very bright light. Small. Good video. Date imprint. cons: Too Small and light, making it impossible to hold the camera still. For this reason, most of your photos are blurry. No manual control. Propriet battery. It is a guess work of those scenes. Noise level is high.

Very Good... but...

C. Des, Amazon
24 July 2005
  • Summary: I've had this camera for about 3 months now. Quality of pictures is very good, as well as its video. Problems I've encountered: (1) very difficult to capture an image at low light even if i play with the different preset modes - I always get a double-image picture, shutter is SO SLOW (2) my camera has this flaw - when the "blurred picture" warning is ON, it does the opposite; saves blurry pictures and gives 'blurry warning' on clear pictures.

Good camera with a major flaw

Jason D. Harrier, Amazon
15 July 2005
  • Summary: I researched several cameras before deciding on the Nikon Coolpix 5900 and ultimately decided that the 5900 was the best camera for the price. The first 5900 I received from Amazon took great photos and lived up to all expectations. However, the LCD screen was crooked, which is very annoying considering you are always looking at it. They sent me a replacement which also had a crooked LCD screen.

Coolpix 5900 - frustrating!

M. R. Parkes, Amazon
7 December 2005
  • Summary: This camera takes excellent pictures but it is the settings control and 'Picture Project' software that gives me trouble. Some changes to settings, e.g. turning the screen off, has no way of changing back apart from 'reset all', therefore losing any other settings that have been made. The software provided to manage ones photo collection is truly awful.

Bra turistkamera men inte för professionellt arbete

alennix, Ciao
22 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Den här kameran är lite större, lite klumpigare dessutom vilket medför att den inte är någon liten partykamera som man enkelt stoppar i bröstfickan. Den är dock tålig mot stötar och så enkel att förstå och hantera att även barn kan fota med den. Det är en bra turistkamera som kan hänga med till stränder och skidbackar och på skogsutflykter utan att behöva packas ur och i stöt-tåligt emballage.
  • Pros: allround kamera för turister, stöttålig kamera
  • Cons: oskärpa i rörelsebilder
