Great deal on a Great used camera!

  • Summary: I bought this camera used, to replace my Nikon P5000 which was destroyed in a flood. I can't say enough good about the P5000 - its format is easy to use, and the lenses Nikon uses are superior quality.

I love this camera!

  • Summary: I take photos professionally with a DSLR, but in the cases that I don't want a big camera, I happily take my p5000. I bought it about 4 years ago, and it's still as good as new. My 3 year old uses it most of the time, actually, and it's held up extremely well if you take that into consideration.

  • Summary: I can tell you from 1st hand experience that this camera is a dynamic, responsive and well built little number. I am writing this review after 4+ years of use and thousands of photos later. I would estimate between 6-8 thousand photos taken with my ever dependable Nikon Coolpix P5000.

  • Excerpt: P.5000 takes extrem sharp pictures, and f.eks. 30x45 copies are very very sharp with many details. F.eks. Snow is very white with details without burnt-out. I use 64 iso only. Colours are beautiful. Sometimes I use my P.5000 professionel. Most Fishingboats.

Love this camera!

  • Summary: We are a real estate company and use the Canon Rebel XT for our property filming. Last year one of our agents purchased this camera and when I saw the results I was astounded. I recently purchased it for my "portable" use and have found it to be perfection for taking great photos while on the run.

  • Summary: I just got this little camera the other day, having ordered it right here on Amazon via a 3rd party seller in excellent condition, new in the box with warranty etc. First of all, let me say that I have done some research and knew what I wanted/needed in a camera.

Great Little Camera

Randy M. Gold, Amazon
23 August 2007
  • Summary: I already have a D200 and a D80, but I also needed a small compact camera for those times and places when you don't want to or are not able to haul around one of the big boys. The Coolpix P5000 is perfect, very easy to stick in a pocket or hand bag and yet you still have 10 megapixels, a long...

So far so good.

  • Summary: I bought this camera right before going on vacation. I owned an old Nikon Coolpix 5000 and I was already familiar with most of the features. It worked well on the trip and the battery lasted quite a long time.

  • Conclusion: The P5000 is a very likable camera. But, it does have quirks and nuances that take you awhile to master. It has "character," it feels great in hand, looks great, can be coached into producing outstanding images, but it doesn't toss them at you without you having played a major role in producing...

  • Cons: I feel, with either Matrix or Center Weighted metering (but, much more so with matrix) the camera tends to blow highlights much more than either my D70 or my D1X. But, I have adjusted for this by turning down the contrast in custom settings which appears to help a great deal...I have just had it ...

  • Conclusion: A very nice compact camera that is an ideal companion replacement for any Nikon dSLR. Feels very solid and I really like the grip. Being used to a Nikon dSLR, I consider the menu as excellent.

  • Cons: Slow focus issue (Nikon please address this issue with a firmware upgrade). Noise levels are disappointing above ISO 400 usage. Purple fringing LCD-screen.
