Nikon Coolpix 5600 Review

Review Date: April 4, 2005

Category: Point-and-Shoot


Executive Summary

This Nikon Coolpix 5600 Review is based on a production model. All sample images are unretouched, except where specified.

Red Phone Booth
5.7mm, Programmed Auto, Multi-Pattern, 1/68 sec., F4.9 and ISO Auto

The Nikon Coolpix 5600 is an attractive, compact, lightweight and affordable digital camera perfect for first-time digital camera users. It is strictly a Point-and-Shoot camera for those who want the camera to take care of exposure for them -- and the camera does this pretty well. Its strong points are good handling, excellent macros, and good quality 5MP images.

Though the Coolpix 5600 has only Auto Mode, it has lots of useful Scene Modes, including four scene assist modes to help with picture composition. It also allows the more advanced amateur photographer to dial in an exposure compensation and set manual White Balance.

The Coolpix 5600 is pocketable in a large pants pocket and extremely light. Thankfully, its handgrip allows you to operate the camera comfortably. It uses 2 AA Alkaline or rechargeable NiMH batteries, and the SecureDigital (SD) memory card.

The Coolpix 5600 is very easy to use and effortlessly captures good quality images in Point-and-Shoot Auto mode. It also features a help system to guide first-time users. It is well-built, is fast with no practical shutter lag, and will open up a whole new world to someone new to photography.
