As a beginner in digital cameras I think I picked a winner with the CP5200. Sorry about the post here but the 5200 does not have a review and it's the 4200 big brother. The small size is a plus for me. I can take this camera with me and never know it's there. I have found the settings very easy to use and the softness reported by others can be attributed to not using the right settings for the situation. Since the camera does not have a true manual control over aperture and shutter speed you ...

Fuzzy. Soft. Most posts of pics in this forum prove it. Nikon! Please do something! My 2100 was sharp as a tack! The 5200 has the sharpness of a $ 75 camera!!!! Problems: Fuzzy. Soft. Blurry.

The delay is awful! Otherwise a very easy camera to use. Light weight and small. The only way to capture a picture without blur (unless it's a tree) is to have it in action mode. The delay is unbeleivable! I'm going to play with it some more, but I might have to take it back. I'm use to my Canon EOS Rebel dSLR and even my inexpensive Kodax digital (can't remember the # off hand), neither of these cameras have a delay at all. Problems: As stated above the massive delay.

I have the Nikon 5200 but I don't know how to write a opinion in that section, so I write it under the 4200 section because it's practicly the same camera.

Image quality is very good, no purple fringing or whatever. Images are indeed a little soft but can be adjusted in the camera or even better with ...

Great little camera! I found the nikon coolpix 4200 and 5200 to be very nice cameras that focused quickly and more reliable than the Canon A-80 during testing in the store. The internal memory of the nikons is nice for getting a fell of the camera without the need of a memory card. I decided on the 4200 to save $$ over the extra mega pixel resolution and better movie mode of the 5200. Startup time is much quicker than my Olympus 2040 and easy of use in great. The camera uses a nikon ...
