Great Camera! Great camera for the price! Did lots of homework and you can't find a better buy in its class. December 6, 2012
Fabulous camera! I bought one a P5000 back in July 2007 in order to take photos of my trip to NYC. I neglected to do my homework and didn't buy a memory card (file that under DUH). However I did get 14 stupendous shots taken on a boat ride on the Hudson River. I was floored by the excellent quality of the photos. Fortunately for me I also carried My FE also. A wonderful camera. I am eternally gratefuol to Nikon for their expertise' and ability to outdo all the other camera manufacturers. Oops I nearly forgot. This camera takes video also. Up to one hour. August 21, 2012
Great little camera I've been using Nikons for over thirty years, and this was my first digital. I also purchased the sb-400 flash and both wide and tele adaptors. This camera makes superb images for a point and shoot. It has a viewfinder which allows me to hold the camera up to my eye for more steady shots. The flash shoe lets me use my sb-400 either off the camera with an extension cord or on the camera with a bounce for more natural lighting. Red-eye and harsh shadows will be eliminated giving images a more natural and professional look. The telephoto and wide angle adaptors add versatility to the camera although you cannot use the viewfinder when using them. They just get in the way of the finder. The presets work well and you are given the ability to shoot shutter priority, aperture priority or manual for more creative control of your images. Menu settings will allow you to bracket exposures and apply D-lighting for even more creative control. This camera has a ton of pro-like features that you would not normally find in a point and shoot. Although the P5000 is geared to the more serious shooter, it can just as easily be switched to Program Mode and Auto White Balance and still make great images. On the negative side, shutter lag can be annoying, as is with most point and shoots. Also, a camera this sophisticated should have been made with a RAW file option. August 7, 2012
Loved it Just perfect for me!!! I strongly recommand it! A definit good buy for your holidays and Family event, no chance off missing an occasion to take great pictures. April 27, 2012
still on my mind This camera changed everything for me. Suddenly, the most beautiful, full depth, highly defined PICS were created by me. Ten years ago, my friends and I chipped in to purchase a coolpix for a birthday gift.I spent the night of the party reading the manual - fell in love with Nikon, and four cameras later,my love continues to grow. Of all my cameras, this is the one. The results are amazing. The quality of construction, no fuss design, and options to become one with this camera, makes for a love affair. buy it. BUY IT..

I have a Coolpix but I would like a Camera with Pictbridge. A lot of the Coolpix seem to have that but I have not yet seen here.

I understand an firmware upgrade would be needed. Although I am not sure how to do that.
(I brought my camera probably about 2003)
