Nikon Coolpix P5000 Review

 

The P5000 is a good camera that would've gotten a higher grade if there weren't issues with responsiveness

Nikon Coolpix P5000

 

The small Coolpix P500 has plenty of exposure settings and other advanced features.

Good ergonomics and compact design. Wide range of exposure and other advanced controls. High-quality LCD complemented by optical viewfinder. Support for external flash units and lens converters.

Limited zoom range. Not well suited for action and telephoto photography. Average operational performance.

the camera provides a range of special settings and effects that should appeal to avid photographers. these options include adjustable contrast, sharpening, saturation, and monochrome settings that replicate the effects of various color filters in...

Nikon Coolpix P5000 review

 

Nikon Coolpix P5000

The Nikon Coolpix P5000 has optical image stabilization and excellent exposure, color, and sharpness.

Slow; LCD unusable in bright sunlight; highly inconsistent color across different ISO sensitivity levels; unusually strong barrel distortion at widest angle despite relatively narrow 36mm-equivalent angle of view.

A few performance issues with the Nikon Coolpix P5000 diminish the appeal of an otherwise nice compact camera for amateurs.
