1 June 2011
Summary: Although not a top of the line SLR Camera it is a top of the line Point and shoot. The first day out of the box I was taking professional looking pictures. This is great for someone like me. I am a makeup artist, and need to be able to snap high quality pics for my portfolio. This works beautifully.
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.
Summary: received shippment within 2-3 days of purchase. the extra batteries are thankful and needed along with the 8g memory card. Only wish the manual was in English although able to review over the net. Have been using none stop since purchase and have not found an issue as all is well.
Summary: This is the 3rd time I purchased the camera and its still works well for me. Love the adjustable monitor that tilts & turn and enables photographing from all angles and views. Its loaded with features like lighting adjustment for all types of lights and temperatures.
Summary: This is one of the few cameras left in it's class that have an optical viewfinder as well as the LCD screen. This allows the user to take photos in bright sunlight when the LCD screen is washed out due to the bright ambient light.
Summary: I've bought this camera for my husband, because he use to have the same one, but something broke and he couldn't get it repaired. We took pictures with this camera and they are great. This camera make very good quality pictures. My husband is very happy with it and he will use it alot.
Summary: I love everything in this camera picture look professional even if you are amateur taking pictures ,.the camera is strong enough and handle many hours of take pictures it's more than average, size is convenient for long trips because is not heavy.
