Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Image

Image:
"It's been a great piece of equipment for me and accompanies my Nikon D300 at all of my photo shoots."
_
"This camera produces beautiful images on auto mode and offers much flexibility through it's custom settings."
_
"I really love the colours this camera produces, and the images are sharp and detailed."
_
"Now I've also read the reviews here and elsewhere, and on major camera review sites such as DPReview, C Net and others and the reviews of the P5000 were mixed with both good and negative comments, namely it's slow start up, slow shutter lag and focus, but it had very, very good image quality despite the 1-7 8 10MP sensor and it had a really good layout, good menu that is along the lines of their DSLR's and a very good grip, which allows for steady 1 handed shooting when needed."
_
"One thing is for sure, I'm fast learning what to look for to determine if overexposing (or underexposing as well) as I go along and yesterday's photo shoot proved, 95% of my shots were more or less correctly exposed by the end of the day."

Quality

Quality:
"People get hung up on Mega Pixels; I don't care how many mega pixels a camera has, if the camera has poor quality glass, it won't take a decent photograph."
_
"I can't say enough good about the P5000 - its format is easy to use, and the lenses Nikon uses are superior quality."
_
"Day time shots outside of still objects are great quality, as are close up shots."
_
"By far, it is the most comfortable (to hold) compact camera I've ever tried and the build quality is excellent."
_
"Picture quality is very good."
_
"Now I've also read the reviews here and elsewhere, and on major camera review sites such as DPReview, C Net and others and the reviews of the P5000 were mixed with both good and negative comments, namely it's slow start up, slow shutter lag and focus, but it had very, very good image quality despite the 1-7 8 10MP sensor and it had a really good layout, good menu that is along the lines of their DSLR's and a very good grip, which allows for steady 1 handed shooting when needed."

Size

Size:
"But, I think all small cameras have this problem to some degree."
_
"The P5000 is an exceptional camera, and small enough to fit in a shirt pocket!"
_
"Size is small enough to carry around and overall a good camera if you don't mind the slow shutter speeds and less than perfect low-light condition pictures."
_
"I've had mine for about two months, here's my summary:The good:Excellent picture quality at 10MPPriceLots of manual controlGood exposureHistogram picture review setting very helpfulIncludes white balance pre-set setting for tough lighting situationsGenerally well builtChoice of shooting modesLarge LCD monitor viewable from many anglesHas both optical viewfinder and LCDThe bad:Too small to hold comfortably, I'm always afraid I'll drop itPink streaks show on LCD when pointed at a light source (but not visible in the picture)Optical viewfinder framing is *VERY* inaccurateZooms too fast to be precise, needs finer zoom controlCould use a wider focal length on the short endBattery memory door is flimsy, seems like it could break off easily---------------------As an example of picture quality, I shot a photo on the Normal setting, at ISO 400."
_
"Because in many (most) situations, it takes very nice pictures, it is small and stylish, it has full manual controls, it has a hotshoe for an external flash, it can accept different lenses, and it takes SD cards."
_
"All those cameras meet the following requirements: small enough to be carried around, good picture quality at lower ISO, fast startup, and reasonable shot to shot performance."

Speed

Speed:
"I am really disappointed with this camera, particularly with the shutter speed (regardless of what settings you change) and the flash quality."
_
"My only complaint is that the focus shutter speed could be better."
_
"A couple of caveats, it's now discontinued and is being replaced by the P5100, but at 12MP instead (and we don't know if it's image quality will suffer as of yet either and it's the same sensor as what's in the new Canon G9, the G7's replacement and it's proving a disappointment) and has some changes to the AF system which might address the slow shutter lag focus issues."
_
"Now I've also read the reviews here and elsewhere, and on major camera review sites such as DPReview, C Net and others and the reviews of the P5000 were mixed with both good and negative comments, namely it's slow start up, slow shutter lag and focus, but it had very, very good image quality despite the 1-7 8 10MP sensor and it had a really good layout, good menu that is along the lines of their DSLR's and a very good grip, which allows for steady 1 handed shooting when needed."
_
"One thing the reviews do say is that this camera really isn't the best choice for sports type shots or any other fast action type shots although I've seen one case where it proved to be no so useless in that situation due to slow shutter speed and frames per second capture speed."

_
"Despite being billed as the flagship point & shoot camera for Nikon, and despite the many cutting edge features, and despite the great qualities noted above, the auto focus is VERY SLOW."
