Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix P5000 is a great digital camera. I had a Cannon for 5 years and thought that I would never use another camera. The old one died on us and so I went shopping for a new digital camera. I looked at Cannons but decided to give Nikon a try. I am absolutely glad I did. I love it. I took it with me on a trip to some botanical gardens and I took so many pictures that I couldn't get them all developed. They are downloaded on my computer.
Nikon Coolpix P5000 is the last camera I will ever need to buy!

Excerpt: I absolutely love this camera. I've owned several Nikon cameras, and they are so easy to use that my son was taking professional-grade photos at age 3! It's true - I have the photo he took at that age, which was sold and published in a coffee table nature book. The cost of the book was over $200, the photos were beautiful! I keep my camera around my neck.
Excerpt: This was my second Digital Camera, and it is Awesome! I purchased it online, and i am very satisfied with it. Nikon is one of the Best names in both Film and Digital photography and this user friendly camera is great!
Ver y Awesome! As for the Value... I truly found a deal!

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. I am still learning the features, but that is just part of the fun for me.
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. It's a great little camera :) No complaints here!
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. Whats more is that I have never replaced the original battery! That is remarkable. It's been recharged over 150 times!
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. The 5 million pixel count is great for most of my needs. Its not really a dislike but manual is 200 pages. It has great possibilities but I really dont need all that.
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. It has many user selectable features that make it my favorite backup camera.
