Nikon Coolpix 5000

Short Review

This is a very nice little camera. The swivel screen makes it very flexable for fun angles.
The viewfinder is fairly useless, IMHO. Nikon changed to a digital viewfinder in later models
The lens is too slow. In low light, it's pretty obnoxious. An external flash is desperately needed.
I don't regret getting it. It served me well and the macro functionality is truly impressive.
I used this camera in an Ikelite housing for a bit. It works well, but the autofocus is frustrating under anything slightly adverse - like surf surge.


Equivalent to 28mm to 85mm wide angle zoom lens.
5 Megapixel - supports RAW and jpeg.
