My wife bought her P5100 after I had bought my Fujifilm S9500, and except for the longer zoom on the Fuji, the Nikon wins easily in every way, including quality, ease of use, and utility. A real point & shoot camera, with only one weakness, and that is fairly noisy pictures at higher ISO settings (here the Fuji is far better). Love this little camera :-)! Problems: At higher ISO, say 1600, it is very noisy!

I have used Nikons for over 40 years from the F to the D3 but I bought this little baby for the same reason as most serious photographers – there are times when I just want to leave the big cases at home and travel light and discreetly. My main concern about any camera is image quality, and the quality of the images taken with this camera in good light are incredibly sharp and detailed, more so at 100% than my D3! I suspect it would rival the D3x for detail, especially as the pixels are more ...

A very good-to-excellent camera within its capabilities. I have generally always owned Canon PS cameras, so the move to this one was not a given. I previously owned the G9 and still would had it not been for some of its shortcomings. I always carry a PS camera as I travel a lot and cannot always carry the big, heavy stuff. The P5100 replaced both the DS-850IS and G9 Canons. So these are my comments and a direct comparison to the G9. If the P5100 were capable of producing raw files, had a ...

Problems: very slow in low light condition,, should have a better handstrap than neck strap but not ...

This camera works great for me. I was looking for a P&S to compliment my D200 and this fits the bill perfectly. I needed something light and easy to carry around instead of the big rig for shooting casual stuff to go on blogs and web sites. Even though it's a 12MP camera, I set to shoot at 2MP size which is more than enough for my needs since all of the photos I take only end up on the Web. So silly that Nikon designed this as 12MP which is more resolution even than a D200! 2mp 1600x1200 at ...

The P5100 is a pleasure to use and I don't find it slow at all. It's not as fully featured as the G9 and it's a step below in price and performance, so it's really silly to compare them. But for what it it, it gives really quality images in a very compact package indeed and I'd choose this way ahead of any of the IXUS models for IQ and ergonomics. Handing and holding the camera is a real pleasure and the user interface simple and intuitive. It's certainly a keeper for me as a carry around. On ...

I've had the P5100 since November, 2007 and couldn't be happier with it. Not to get too technical, but the images it produces are fantastic. It's pretty straight forward for ease of use, and that's coming from a longtime Canon owner. I found the neckstrap to be kinda funny....it's not that big, so it looks and feels strange hanging from your neck. I put a wrist strap on it instead. Highly recommended. Problems: My only gripe is I wish you could reformat the memory card in "menu."

The P5100 is everything I was looking for camera. It takes very nice pictures and is very easy to use. A new person to photography to a professional photographer can use this camera. My money was well spent and I have no neg comments on this camera. Been using it since Dec 07

Great little supplement to D200. Very good image quality, superb colours. Problems: Focussing could be a little quicker
