Nikon CoolPix 5000

 

£999 was a bargain five years ago, but it’s expensive for a sub-professional camera these days. However, its vast array of hands-on features, top-quality image capture and pro essentials, such as the hot-shoe and lens options, put the CoolPix 5000...

The Nikon CoolPix 5000 created great hope among Nikon fans, and others for a compact, powerful and high quality five megapixel camera. After reading the specification released with the CoolPix 5000 announcement we were certainly looking forward to...

Coolpix 5000

 

A noise reduction setting reduces graininess on exposures of 1/15 second or longer, but there's also a rather odd 'clear image mode' that works at any speed by taking two images in rapid succession and merging them to cancel CCD noise. You need a...

Nikon Coolpix 5000 review

 

If you're a digital-photo enthusiast, you've probably had your eye on Nikon's 5.24-megapixel Coolpix 5000 since long before it hit the shelves. But if you're a casual snapshooter, you'd do best to look elsewhere. This is a sophisticated camera made for...

High resolution; extensive feature set; compact design and comfortable ergonomics; fold-out-and-swivel LCD; compatible with IBM Microdrives.

A few important controls are buried; lens not as powerful as competitors'; noticeable chromatic aberration and JPEG artifacts in images.

Some may not like this camera's menu-driven operation or modest lens, but it offers an extensive feature set and flexible design.

Nikon Coolpix 5000 Review

 

The Coolpix 5000 was first announced back in September this year. Its design with a compact metal body, extending lens and flip-out and twist LCD surprised quite a few Coolpix aficionados. Clearly the Coolpix 5000 doesn't follow the previous line of...

Good metering, good automatic white balance, average resolution capability Control over all processing algorithm parameters: contrast, saturation, sharpness Good build quality, small and compact design Wide angle zoom (28 mm) Concept of three user...

Slow startup time Chromatic aberrations just as visible as previous Coolpix digital cameras High noise levels from ISO 200 upwards Video camera like clipping of highlights ('video camera' look to some images) Stuck pixel (on the camera I had for...

Here's my rating of the Nikon Coolpix 5000: (5 megapixel prosumer)
