Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera Camera

 

WHAT'S HOT: The Coolpix 5700 has all of the controls and imaging muscle of the Coolpix 5000, but ups the zoom range from 28mm to 85mm (3X, 35mm equivalent) to a powerful 35mm to 280mm (8X). We would have preferred, though, that the 5700 start at a...

Most of what we said about the Coolpix 5000's controls holds true for the 5700. Many of its controls were tough to decipher at first; time and practice are needed to learn the finer points of using this camera. In one improvement, while the 5000 had...

Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera (Nikon-25504)

 

If you don't mind an electronic viewfinder, the 5700 offers most everything a serious photographer needs. Its 8X zoom makes the 5700 especially suited for sports and nature photography.

Nikon Coolpix 5700 review

 

Nikon Coolpix 5700

8X optical zoom; extensive feature set; crisp photos with very low noise.

Tough learning curve; slightly sluggish autofocus.

Shooters who know their photographic stuff will be thrilled with the Nikon Coolpix 5700's sophisticated feature set.

Nikon Coolpix 5700 Review

 

The new eight times zoom, five megapixel Coolpix 5700 was announced on May 29th, 2002 as part of a trio of new Coolpix digital cameras from Nikon. The 5700 marks the next logical progression from the Coolpix 5000 and adds a big eight times optical zoom...

Excellent metering, great neutral color response, above average resolution Control over internal processing algorithm parameters: contrast, saturation, sharpness Relatively low ISO 100 noise Very clever 'Quick Response' shutter release mode Excellent...

Some lens barrel distortion at wide angle and some pincushion distortion at telephoto Average startup times (due to the extending lens) Video camera like clipping of highlights ('video camera' look to some images) Magenta and Yellow Bayer artifacts...

NIKON COOLPIX 5700

Nikon CoolPix 5700 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

As I say before each of my Nikon reviews, Nikon is one of the names that literally needs no introduction in the world of photography. Long a leader in the film world, they offer cameras for both the serious amateur and working professional. Their...

The Coolpix 5700's electronic optical viewfinder and LCD monitor were very accurate at wide angle, showing approximately 98 percent frame accuracy. At telephoto, my standard lines of measurement were just barely out of frame, so the accuracy was very...

This is a swell camera for anything that holds still. If you want a tiny digital camera that is state of its art with a great long telephoto lens then by all means go for it. If I was going on a long trip and wanted to pack as much into one tiny...

Is the Coolpix 5700 the camera everyone has been waiting for? Find out now in our review

All the manual controls you'll ever need ; 8X optical zoom lens ; Excellent photo quality ; Superb macro ability ; CompactFlash Type II slot - Microdrive works fine ; Handy swiveling LCD ; Hot shoe for external flash ; RAW and TIFF file formats

LCD is too small; limited viewing angle ; Poorly placed power switch and left-side controls ; No manual focus ring ; Proprietary battery costs a lot and doesn't last long, especially with Microdrive ; Included 16MB memory card way too small ; Expensive

As always, I recommend a trip down to your local reseller to try out the CP5700 and it's competitors before you buy!
