In comparison to most of the Nikons or even other digital cameras, the coolpix 5700 is a dinosaur. However, it has great features that keep it afloat. For instance, it does take crisp pictures with its 5 mega pixel standard. It allows you to control the flash settings and the size of the image input. The ISO has a range of 100 to 800 and can be set to either manual or auto. Although the display is smaller than I like, it still has a unique feature where you can angle it to your liking. You can also close it to avoid dust. A feature I needed in dusty Africa.
There are a host of other features consistent with today's standards.
It's main limitations are video recording..which only allows 60 secs worth due to the small storage capacity of up to 1gb compact flash.
The battery life is ok, depending on how long you plan to shoot.
Overall, even with its obvious limitations, if you need a camera that takes good pictures and also gives you a bit of control when needed over the auto features and if possible....find it at a decent price, this is the camera for you. Again, for an old dinosaur, this isn't a bad camera.
I purchased this camera in 2003 for my Alaska vacation. WOW! I have pictures of bears catching fish with dripping water stopped in mid-air and drops that hit the river splashing back up in freeze frame. I got fantastic landscape shots. I took > 800 pictures with the Nikon and also took my regular film camera with 3 lenses. After returning from the trip, I retired the film camera. When I first bought this camera it cost a whopping $850 but I discovered it was worth it. Some of the pictures I blew up to 13 x 19" and the detail is amazing. By today's standards, 5MP seems ancient but the sensor on this camera is amazing. It has the hot shoe for extra light if need be, a completely movable LCD (although it is small). You can shoot RAW with this camera and 4 or 5 other pic sizes, plus it shoots 3FPS so you can pick just the right one. The only reason I gave it 4 stars on value was for a point and shoot "back in the day" $850 was a lot of money. I WOULD LIKE TO MENTION, IN 2008 I TOOK IT ON A CRUISE AND IT KEPT SHUTTING DOWN. IT WAS THE END OF THE TRIP AND WHEN I RETURNED HOME, I CALLED NIKON BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO BE RIPPED OFF BY SOME FLY-BY-NIGHT REPAIR PERSON. NIKON TOLD ME IMMEDIATELY THAT THE ISSUE WAS THEIR PROBLEM AND HAD ME RETURN IT TO THEM. THEY REPAIRED IT AND SHIPPED IT BACK TO ME. CERTAINLY WHEN THE CAMERA WAS ALMOST 5 YEARS OLD THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A WARRANTY BUT NIKON VOLUNTARILY ADMITTED IT WAS THEIR FAULT AND COULD NOT HAVE BEEN NICER TO ME. I WAS AND REMAIN VERY HAPPY WITH THIS CAMERA!! (I READ IN ANOTHER REVIEW THAT ANOTHER PERSON HAD THE SAME SHUTTING DOWN ISSUE I HAD AND THAT PERSON SAID IT COST $175 FOR THE REPAIR BUT THE UNIT CONTINUED TO BREAK. I DON'T KNOW WHO SHE SENT IT TO BECAUSE SHE SAID SHE SENT IT TO LONG ISLAND WHICH IS WHERE NIKON IS LOCATED. MAYBE SHE SENT IT TO A REPAIR VENDOR RECOMMENDED BY NIKON AND NIKON WAS NOT AWARE OF THE NATURE OF THE PROBLEM. NIKON DID NOT CHARGE ME A DIME FOR MY REPAIR. I WANTED TO MENTION THIS BECAUSE SINCE THE ISSUE WAS A MFG ISSUE, I WANT OTHER COOLPIX 5700 PEOPLE TO KNOW, NIKON STOOD BY THEIR PRODUCT WITHOUT ANY QUESTIONS OR ISSUES.)
We had such camera for a long time. Very good and beautiful photos left. But has been lost.
I have suggested to purchase instead of this camera new model any. But it has been enamoured in the given camera and refused to exchange it for something other.
It was necessary to search and find it at auction. To me has carried. The wife was very glad having taken it again in hand.
The camera convenient. There are the modes necessary for beginners to photograph. Manual parametres of shooting and format RAW
Only had it a week but what a GREAT little performer!! It has an automatic focus feature so your pix come out looking almost perfect! Color is bright and sharp. Camera is easy to use and easy to hold--feels real good and balanced in the hand. Zoom feature is amazing. I've been having fun getting the "whole picture" and then zooming in on just one aspect of the scene--both shots come out looking great! Impressive! Here's the best compliment I can give: on my way to work at our local newspaper (I am NOT a reporter or photographer! I am the CLERK) on a very, snowy, stormy, winter's day, I had to stop because a semi was jacknifed across the whole highway! In the midst of the storm, I got out of my vehicle, took a few steps toward the truck, used the zoom feature and got a GREAT shot of the stuck truck! The photo was SO GREAT that we used it on our newspaper's FRONT PAGE Website!! The photo rivaled those taken by the two professional photographers who work for us! This 5-mega pixel camera takes better pictures than the 10 MP camera my coworker has!
I got a Canon Rebel T1i for my birthday a couple of years ago and I also have a Canon digital Elph. I've played around with both Canons trying to get better, more consistent pictures from both of them without much luck. Recently, a friend returned the Nikon Coolpix 5700 I lent him after getting the T1i. It was a revelation...the Nikon, especially on the automatic settings, simply took better pictures, despite its "limited" 5MP sensor. So, I invested in a much larger compact flash (2GB and soon 8GB...they're really cheap, along with a USB converter for $5), got an extra new battery ($20 if you look in the right places), purchased the wide-angle lens and adapter (~$30 total), and, voila, I have a smaller, terrific "dinosaur" (as one reviewer put it) that works perfectly well, has a great zoom lens, and takes great pictures. Yeah, I suspect I could play with my Canon T1i and get better pictures, but the Nikon is lots more convenient and still takes great pictures, including RAW format and still has tons of adjustments for picture playtime. I say "pixels, schmixels" and am perfectly happy with the quality I get on my "fine" setting 1.5MB pictures from this Nikon (the 2GB card gets you ~800 fine pictures...sufficient for anything but the longest of trips).
