    Nikon Coolpix P5000

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Looking for a high quality digital camera in a compact form factor? You might consider looking at the Nikon Coolpix P5000. Today we take a close look at it and see whether it measures up to the competition, and to Nikon's reputation for producing high quality cameras.


    Nikon released the Coolpix P5000 in early 2007 as a way to try and get back into the high-end compact market, which is currently ruled by the Canon Powershot A710 IS. The P5000 looks like a great competitor to the A710 on the the surface, but it does have its flaws which may give the A710 the advantage in the high-end compact class. Probably the most disappointing aspect of the P5000 is its slow performance as compared to other digital cameras in its class. Beyond this flaw, as well as some other minor ones, the P5000 is an all-around solid compact that produces great image quality with its 10 megapixel capability and integrated image stabilization.

    The price tag of this camera is approximately $330 at most online shops, as of the date of this writing. This price is about $75 more than its closer competitor, the Canon A710, which has a price tag of around $250 in most online shops. Nikon's higher price tag on the P5000 may hurt their sales a bit as compared to the lower priced competition, but this is yet to be seen. Nikon has a high standard of quality that they instill into all of their cameras, and although the P5000 has a few minor flaws, you are still getting a high quality compact digital camera in the Nikon P5000.
