We have had our Nikon Coolpix 700 for over a year. In that time we have taken hundreds and hundreds of photos. In the previous few years of using old-fashioned cameras, we had taken only 48 pictures! So the first advantage of a digital camera is that you do use it. We had heard that one of the...

ProSuperb picture quality and colour

ConsEats batteries

When I decided I wanted to buy a digital camera, I was lucky enough to have an enthusiastic sales person to help me, because within the £400 price range there is a lot of rubbish. The Nikon Coolpix 700, however, has the quality of a camera twice its price. Although it doesn't have a zoom lens...

For Cool pictures every time you should go out and buy yourself the Nikon Coolpix P5000. It may be expensive at £239, but what you get for your chas is a digital camera packed with as many features as you could possibly dream up. It doesn't look like the nicest camera out there and it certainly...

I was looking around for a new digital camera which had to be easy to use and produce results that could be printed out on the computer printer.

Product Information : Nikon Coolpix P5000

Manufacturer's product description

The Nikon Coolpix P5000 features advanced functions, which are skillfully packed into a solid body that features a magnesium alloy front panel, for durability in a lightweight package. The new Mode dial gives access to four exposure modes that advanced photographers desire for even greater control over camera operations. Programmed Auto (P) mode automatically selects shutter and aperture settings for optimal exposure. Shutter-priority Auto (S) lets the photographer automatically select a desired shutter speed, and the camera sets the optimal aperture setting. Aperture-priority Auto (A) offers 10-step control over the aperture setting in 1/3 EV increments to let the photographer control depth of field, while the camera automatically adjusts the shutter speed to achieve optimal exposure. Manual (M) exposure mode gives the photographer full control over both aperture and shutter speed settings. In addition, a selection of 16 Scene modes and seven different movie modes can be easily accessed via the Mode dial and high-resolution 2.5 inch LCD. Originally developed for Nikon SLR lenses, the Optical Image Stabilization system helps you overcome camera shake. The system automatically detects and compensates for small movements that would otherwise cause images to blur, and enables a shooting experience similar to shooting at shutter speeds three stops faster, while also providing a smoother image on the LCD. The result is sharper pictures when shooting in low light, taking advantage of the 3.5x zoom when using the optical telephoto converter lens. Great for shooting steadier movies as well! High light sensitivity up to ISO 3200 allows you to tackle scenes and situations far beyond the capabilities of conventional compacts, offering new power to capture fast-moving objects with outstanding clarity and gives you great exposure in significantly lower light.
