5 megapixel Coolpix with its distinctive tilt/swivel LCD gets the 'Jeff Keller treatment'...
Our friends at the Digital Camera Resource Page (which this weekend was mentioned in the Washington Post!) have now posted their review of Nikon's Coolpix 5000 digital camera. Jeff wraps up by concluding:
"Overall, I recommend the Nikon Coolpix 5000, though I have some serious issues with it. On the plus side, the photo quality is usually excellent, the feature-set is top notch, and the hot shoe and Microdrive support are welcomed. My problems with the camera are in three areas: 1) the tendency to blow out the sky; 2) the cluttered rear controls; 3) the lackluster battery life, especially with a Microdrive installed, combined with the costly proprietary battery."Jeff still has the camera for a few more weeks, so be sure and read his review. If you have a question that isn't answered, he might even be able to test it out and update the review!
