I Love my coolpix 5900. However just after my warranty expired the camera malfunctioned and the shutter wouldn't close all the way. Nikon unofficially stated that a foreign object was to blame and not covered by warranty anyway. They said that wiping off the camera before putting it away may avoid future problems. Price to fix-$170

My camera is OK for most of my purpose. The gap between two shots is kind of big. The flash doens't go much far. Sharpening maybe is a trouble too, I have a little work at the software getting it better. Colours are very very good. Well, I should explore it better to make a much accurate review.

THE NIKON 5900 COOLPIX CAMERA HAS ALWAYS BEEN A QUICK AND STEADY CAMERA TO USE. IT HAS MANY OF THE SAME FEATURES OF MY 35 SLR NIKON FILM CAMERAS AND IS MUCH MORE LIGHT WEIGHT. IT'S EASE OF USE IS A GREAT THING WHILE I AM SHOOTING FROM THE KAYAK ON THE EDGE OF THE RIVER CHANNEL AS THE DOLPHINS SWIM BY.

Very good pocket camera. Basically a point and shoot but with a lot of controls. At 6MP it is an average resolution digital, but it takes superior photos. Great for travel, parties, walking around, etc. I love it and it is a great compliment to my D2X.

This is a competent camera with a very nice lens. Well balanced colors and good exposure. The autofocus is a bit weak in low light conditions. Both camera and motive must be absolutly still. Somtimes I feel that it is a bit too slow.

I like my camera because it takes great, clear pictures and the battery life is so long, I rarely have to charge it. I don't like that you can't use different zooms.

can do a lot of things without going into tedious manual adjustments. Easy to hold. Best option is the D-lighting.

Nikon Coolpix 5900 is so small that I carry it with me all the time so that I do not miss any opprtunities to shoot.

The compac size is a shock but good. The wight is good. I wish it had more options. In terms of lighting effects and white balance, I find it a little limited. At times it gives me a shadow which I cannot understand.

Great point and shoot camera. It is pretty quick but still has an annoying lag time just like all point and shoot digital cameras. Great look, easy to use menu and great viewing screen. I would recommend this camera to anyone.

I don't know much about cameras. Actually this is my first one. I love it because it is very easy to operate. The only thing I don't like is that it does not zoom very far.
