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: 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: 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 have a Canon EOS Rebel which takes fantastic pictures. I use it around home and when I am setting up static shots such as family portraits. The only problem is...who wants to lug it around to take snapshots. Despite some of the above opinions about lack of sharpness, I have had no such problems. The 5900 is great for "grab" shots and it's not too shabby for setting up a planned shot using it's advanced controls. Be sure that you buy a FAST memory card.
Summary: Camera is very nicely made, and is comfortable to hold , even for its small size.Battery usage is exemplary,and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice carry around camera.Identical in features and looks to the 7 mp 7900, only finised in a nice satin silver instead of the 7900's black.Both look quite nice.I believe the 5900 has been discontinued already for a plastic bodied model with no optical viewfinder.For its price, you will be pleased, very pleased.
Summary: This camera is well worth the money. It takes crisp, clear pictures and has a very long battery life. It is loaded with extra features and is quite user friendly. If you want a high quality digicam and don't want to spend too much, then this is the camera for you.
One of the best compact point and shoot digicams out there
26 September 2005
Summary: I did EXTENSIVE research on compact point and shoot digital cameras before I finally took the plunge and bought this one. I'm glad I did. I'm a total amateur and know very little about cameras so here's my review with that in mind. Size/Build Very solid build. Mostly metal with some plastic components. Nice grip built in, although it assumes right-handedness. Menu and GUI is very intuitive and needs very little explanation.
