Nikon Coolpix P5000 review

I bought my P5000 2nd hand off eBay and it is just superb. I find it a very handy wee camera. I have it in my van glovebox and its ready to go at any time. The battery is very long lasting. I carry a spare battery just in case but I have never needed it... We have an old Olypus digital camera at work and its a night mare to use and setup. It still takes really fuzzy pictures. I usually end up going for my P5000.... The inside shots and close ups are really clear. It gets used for taking shots of PCB's and electronic assemblies but is equally at home taking portraits and landscapes... Just press and go... I am in the market for a D80 or D200 second hand as the P5000 has stirred me into action....!


Apart from taking action shots which I find the camera slow (probably the singer not the song...!) I have no complaints...!
