This camera has been a great little go-to system for the last 10,000 photos.  5mp and great optics, easy to use with lots of flexibilities.  It takes movies and continuous pictures.  It's light. I'm glad I own it. The problems are: The photos in automatic mode look consistently great, but after every shot the trashcan is displayed.  It essentially takes as long to take a 640x480 VGA as a RAW or uncompressed TIFF.  I've missed many many good shots because of this.  The trashcan shot ...

Have taken some 7000 shots since purchasing the camera new in Sept 2002. Other than the firmware upgrade and a ccd remap for hot pixels, nothing has ever been done to the camera. It suffers the usual complaints of the 5700, poor low light autofocus, slow startup, shutter delay and battery gluttony. I can currently buy a D300 DSLR body for the same price that I paid for the 5700 in 2002. It is compact and very versatile, so despite it's age and shortcomings, there are no plans to upgrade. Pro ...

I have this camera for four years. The only disatvantage is that room light is not enough for it to focus, other than that, in the outdoors, its just great. Those who say pictures are not clear simply don't know how to take pictures, this has nothing to do with the camera. I hope Nikon will come up with 12-15x & with image stabelizer replacement soon. It's time to change. Problems: Battery does not last long. one must have a spare.

I had this camera for more then a year when it got stolen from me, just a week and a half ago. I loved it. The macro was fantastic. You can see examples of my macro shots at www.pooky125.deviantart.com The pictures were clear, color accurate, and beautiful, when it felt like it. Mine, more then most others, I hear, was very particular on when it felt like taking a good photograph. It didn't like my mother much. When in Automatic mode for her, the pictures were frequently washed out and ...

I own an slr, but I recently bought this camera for hiking. The results are stunning. Macro is especially good. Portraits at 8x zoom have nice background blur. 100% crop on images shows little more noise than slr due to the large 2/3 sensor. I hope that the pixel race ends someday so we can see a new crop of great 5MP cameras. Even with 6mp slr, lens resolution is more limiting than pixels...please stop adding pixels to small cameras! Large pixels produce better images. Noise ...

An amateur photographer going digital has to get started somewhere. It makes sense to combine your knowledge of photography with research and then make your best choice of camera. You can't shop forever! Get it and get started! My first choice was a Sony because it had something I was very familiar with - a disk drive. While owning a Sony Mavica, I did lots of research on this site, dpreview.com, and chose the Nikon 5700 mostly on photo quality. This was 4 years ago, and, sure I would love ...

All time best Hidden Gem Still, 2006 lightyears later in technology and this camera had to be compared against the newer models and glad to report it holds its own at least and is still better then most tiny lens cameras in some ways I believe even today and many others even with large lens. This is a hidden gem if you can get past knowing whether you are buying a good model and accepting some other thingsl. When working the ONLY real negative is low light shots are difficult to get a great ...

update as of 2006. sold the 5700. used it for over 5000 + photos in many conditions. camera worked fine. finally sold it and got a d-50. but in comparing the images, and although i like the d-50 slr format. the image quality of the 5700 still holds up. UPDATE: 6/07 - In looking back over my website, and now after owning a d-100 and a D-50 The pictures of the 5700 still hold up very well. On my web page the Brazil and Peru pictures were taken with the 5700 and you cant see any difference. ...
