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 isn't one you can slide into your top pocket but what do you expect from what I think is a semi-pro piece of digital hardware.

Picture resolution is 10 million pixels and this captures every moment perfectly. I have never seen such detail, such sharpness from a digital camera before. To add to the picture taking experience the P5000 has an incorporated vibration reduction system within the lense which means taking snaps after a night on the ale won't leave you with blurry pictures! The flash is also very powerful and when used with the fading light setting picks up soft settings beautifully. A greater feature when taking snaps of landscapes in fading light or outside with minimal background light.

There is no LCS screen viewfinder which you find on most low end digital cameras but instead the P5000 uses the traditional viewfinder which reminds me of my first ever camera. Thankfully it does weigh the same as my first camera which need 2 people to hold onto it! Ther P5000 is light but has that heavy, durable build feel to it if you know what I mean.

The battery life is also really good and usually around 150 pictures can be taken before they ned recharging or replacing, When using the flash, this is reduced to around 90 snaps. The memory can only store 10 pictures so buying an SD memory card is a huge must for any potential buyer.

If you need a new camera and are looking for that professional edge and feel, you should buy this camera. If you take snaps on an irregular basis, a lower end mosel would be better for you.

I'm looking for a new camera at the moment, but for a starter digital camera user this is a bit above what I was going to pay ;o(
