Nikon Coolpix 5400

 

Smaller and lighter than the Canon PowerShot G5 and Olympus C-5060 Wide Zoom, the Nikon Coolpix 5400 packs lots of power and takes good pictures.

Summary: The high-quality, versatile Coolpix 5400 is slow but produces very good to excellent shots.

Nikon Coolpix 5400 review

 

Nikon Coolpix 5400

Solid metal-alloy construction; well-rounded feature set; excellent image quality.

Small LCD; relatively short-lived battery for an enthusiast camera.

When the 5400 is good, it's very, very good. It's just missing a few features that enthusiasts crave.

The Coolpix 5400 takes fantastic pictures, and it can handle nearly any shooting situation. But pausing to remember where each of its many features is buried can cause you to miss some shots.
