Nikon Coolpix 4500 & 5700 samples online

May 29, 2002 at 16:44 GMT

Right now I'm not sure what's going on, we were told no samples from beta cameras but the Japanese 'photo album' site 'Miscall' has posted some samples from both the 4500 and 5700, also Nikon Japan has posted samples from both the 4500 and 5700. So, for those curious about these new camera's image quality it looks as though you may now have an opportunity.

* It's not clear if this is production firmware or not
** Pre-production

Phil: I am particularly annoyed about the 'Miscall' site who manage to post early samples without any supporting text, commentary or warnings that these are pre-production cameras.
