  • Nikon Coolpix 5700

    We got a new digital camera, and I LOVE it!!!

    I posted a photo from our first go-round with it....check it out in the gallery or by clicking below. I really like it; in fact, I'm considering entering it in some photography contests......

    Opinions welcomed!

    Aren't digital cameras great! What one did you get?

    Great job on the photo. Cats can be very difficult to photograph as they are very prone to red-eye with their reflective eyes! You did a great job avoiding this. Well done!

      We got the Nikon Coolpix 5700. It's a sweetie, lemme tell you!

      I never use flash on animals if it can be avoided because of the reflection problems....with this one, I used a tripod set up right by my window and took with a reasonable shutter speed on digital equivalent ISO 100 film.

      That's why we love the 5700--you can go fully automatic OR fully manual, depending on the situation and your preferences!
      It's a beautiful thing :P

        Great photo of your cat. I've had my Nikon 5700 for a week and I am very happy with it. I've always used a point and shoot camera. So I have a lot to learn.

          Thanks for the advice on the camera and for the excellent sample pic. I personally have never bought one since they had too little memory and not enough resolution. Haven't checked into them lately, though, so maybe they have improved to the point where they would produce print quality photos. Will have a look at the Nikon 5700.

          Great photo of your cat! Love the all-over grayness of it, with plenty of variation in shapes and light. Soft a kitty kat deserves.

              Digital Vs Analog
              by christo
              I have been a traditional 35mm photographer for more than 30 years. I have a large sum of money invested in cameras, lenses and other equipment, so I have not jumped on the digital bandwagon. I did get into converting my analog prints into digital and am very comfortable with PhotoShop. Most of the...

              An excellent website for learning about macrophotography. I just wish he used Nikon equipment so I could use his recommended hardware advice verbatim. I really like that Canon flash setup.

              Ready to take the plunge............
              by sjm
              I'm ready to take the plunge into digital photography, but confused about what camera to purchase. I'm looking at Nikon, Canon, Olympus.

              Any good sites for comparison? Any first hand experience with any of these?

              I'm planning on about 4 megapixels.

              Canon Powershot G2 or Nikon Coolpix 5000
              by OhThatGirl2001
              I'm about to purchase my third digital camera. I am a bit of a techie person and find I jump on the high tech bandwagon a little too fast. I bought one of the first Rio Mp3 players, only to discover in 6 months a flood of newer and more powerful players at a cheaper price. I also purchased one of the...

              Digital Camera for a job or for fun
              by gpumar
              I'd like to buy a camera for a job (portrait and animals) at affordable price (which is part of the main subject) but with the capability to get professional results (manual settings)

              Canon ESO Rebel XS which is about $400 doesn't look bad. but am I buying the right one ?
