Not a great camera - Average at best

RonAnnArbor, Amazon
26 July 2007
  • Summary: I had the opportunity to try out this camera for a few days before returning it. Let me preface this by saying I am a Nikon fanatic with several Nikon cameras and a D200 dSLR. I have turned to the canon G7, though, as my point and shoot and thought I would try out the Nikon P5000 when it arraived at my local camera shop. I returned it a few days later and stuck with the G7 (see my review there for positives for the G7) The Nikon P5000 disappoints almost across the board.

Coolpix P5000

D. Smith, Amazon
13 June 2007
  • Summary: Camera works well and is easy to use. After using a Canon PowerShot I find the P5000 a bit bulky. The image quality is not always consistent when I save my photos for email or web This was never a problem with the Powershot. Printed photos are terrific and the anti shake is great when using the camera in low light.

Very noisy!

P. Cooke, Amazon
15 June 2007
  • Summary: This is a great camera. My only gripe which you won't beable to properly test in a shop is as follows: A constant hum can be heard from the Vibration Reduction (VR) mechanism and will occur even if the VR function is turned off. When the P5000 is turned on, the circuitry which monitor the cameras VR systems and movement of the camera are also activated. This ensures that when the VR function is turned on the VR system is in the optimal position and ready for use.

P5000 macro vs 880

M. Hodgetts, Amazon
26 May 2007
  • Summary: I have had a Nikon 880 3.3 Mpixel camera for the last six years (at least) and decided it was time to upgrade as the sensors are so much more sensitive these days. Layout is great, menus are easy to use and the LCD on the back is sooo much bigger (and soo much more vulnerable). Compared to 880 this camera is smaller, the battery will probably last longer between charges (although the 880 would take available dry-cell batteries in an emergency), and it is lighter.

Schöne Kamera, Bilder nur Durchschnitt

  • Summary: Die Kamera macht einen schönen soliden Eindruck und hält sich prima in der Hand. Hervorzuheben sind die vielen Einstellmöglichkeiten und da hakt es dann auch schon, denn sie ist fürs einfach so drauflosfotographieren nicht geeignet, da die Bilder nur einigermaßen brauchbar sind, wenn man vorher diverse Einstellungen vornimmt. Ich habe keine Lust erst zig verschiedene Einstellungen zu probieren bis ich dann endlich ein Bild machen kann.

  • Excerpt: soy propietario de una Nikon P4 y de una canon a710, he probado la P5000,y puedo asegurar comparándolos con cualquiera de las otras que tengo,que es una auténtica porquería, baja nitidez, nitidez en los extremos del cuadro malísima, enfoque demencial de lento y malo, distorsión de barril para ser solo un 3,5X bestial, pantalla malísima,no se puede ver con sol ni loco. lo dicho nikon se ha lucido para mal.

Nikons Antwort auf die Canon G7/G9 - leider etwas dürftig!

James Pous, Amazon
18 November 2007
  • Summary: Da ich meine Spiegelreflexkamera nicht immer mitnehmen möchte, suchte ich noch eine kleine kompakte Kamera mit einem großen Display, Blenden- und Zeitautomatik und manuellen Einstellungsmöglichkeiten. Darüber hinaus sollte die Brennweite ungefähr 35-140 mm betragen. Die Nikon P5000 kommt der Sache schon sehr nahe. Ich habe sie mir im Internetversandhaus bestellt und knapp 2 Wochen getestet und enttäuscht zurückgeschickt.

Nikon Coolpix P5000

bailar789, Ciao
6 July 2007
  • Summary: Aunque aún es pronto para tildar a la P5000 de nuevo buque insignia de las Coolpix, la recién presentada acumula no pocos méritos para esta candidatura. Así lo acredita el sensor CCD de 10 megapíxeles, los controles manuales, la sensibilidad máxima de 1600 ISO -ampliable a 3200 ISO- y el estabilizador VR que acompaña al modesto zoom de 3,5x. Redacción.
  • Pros: DISEÑO Y PRECIO
  • Cons: NO TRAE TARJETA EXTERNA

  • Excerpt: Разочаровало качество картинки. Неравномерность резкости по полю кадра. Например, в одном углу резко, в другом - "мыло". В режиме "макро", однако, рисует хорошо. По моему, все силные стороны перечёркиваются качеством объектива. Покупать не советую.
  • Pros: Добротный, эргономичный корпус. Ручная установка экспозиционных параметров. Горячий башмак.
  • Cons: Качество изображения
