Summary: I look the size if fit the hand well, picture are what I am look for in a digital camera. Today camera looks at compact size this camera of the past opens a good camera and a good price to get the pictures one need for the web or home use.
Summary: For what it is, & how logically it was constructed, I cannot recommend this amazing little gem too highly . I bought it as a 'sidekick' for my Nikon D80 which I use when my photographic intent is focused & serious.
Summary: I returned this camera not because anything was wrong with it, but because it had too many features for what I wanted. The shutter lag was a bit slow, and I wanted a point-and-shoot that I could carry everywhere and whip out of my bag at a moment's notice.
Nikon Coolpix P5000 - good, but not as good as expected.

Summary: I wanted to update my Coolpix 7600 because of 2 issues: slow shutterspeed and poor low-light shots (better flash). The P5000 was not a major improvement in these areas. A perk that I like with my old 7600 is the fact that I can copy pictures taken by other cameras and move to the memory card of the...
Summary: Overall, for a point-and-shoot you can put in your pocket, I'm quite happy with this camera. What I like about it is full features, especially the ability to override the fixed scene settings (which are good) with shutter or aperture bias and manual -- all with 10 MP resolution.
Summary: It's a 4-star camera at ISOs 64 and 100. Once you get above that the noise is obvious in the shadow areas and needs a heavy dose of Photoshop. I have a Nikon D100 and D200 and shoot at low ISOs, so it's no problem for me to use my P5000 at ISO64 and 100.
Summary: The cammera is almost the best. Pros: Great, great, quality of pictures Lot of functions. Versatile. Has the options as a professional cammera, but in a compact size. Cons: Only two details: 1)It has an ugly silver-alluminium ring around the lens, in body front, that disfigure its nice presence.
