A compact, lightweight digital still camera with 5.0 effective megapixels, the COOLPIX 5700 was developed for advanced amateurs, digital enthusiasts, and semi-professional photographers who demand high performance in every aspect of photography, as well as an air of sophistication.
Nikon's newly developed 8x Zoom-Nikkor lens, with its 8.9-71.2mm (equivalent to 35-280mm in 35mm  format) focal range, delivers exceptional optical performance with two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens elements. Together with the 5.0 effective megapixels, it ensures images of remarkable color, contrast and clarity. And the lens' considerable zoom range provides invaluable flexibility.
The compact, lightweight body is made of magnesium (Mg) alloy, which offers unparalleled portability. The camera's ergonomic, easy-grip design ensures secure handling and comfortable operation.
The Vari-angle LCD monitor and the new EVF (Electronic ViewFinder) with its great frame coverage combine to offer total convenience in every shooting position. And both deliver your images almost immediately.
Features such as 5-area Multi Autofocus and various exposure metering settings, extremely popular in film-type cameras, will certainly satisfy conventional camera users. The COOLPIX 5700 incorporates an auto pop-up Speedlight, and also features an accessory shoe, which enables the attachment of an external Speedlight when more lighting is necessary. Multiple capture modes can be selected, including an all-new RAW image (NEF format) recording mode for untouched image quality, and movies with audio for up to 60 seconds. The COOLPIX 5700 also has a Built-In Speaker, making instant confirmation playback of movies possible. Features like the Noise Reduction Mode, Saturation Control and White Balance Bracketing will also help improving image quality.
The COOLPIX 5700 is compatible with a broad range of quality accessories. The optional wideangle converter lens and telephoto converter lens extend the photographer's creative potential. The optional battery pack, powered by LR6/AA-size alkaline batteries incorporates a second shutter button for portrait/vertical position shooting.
The new viewer software, Nikon View 5 (supplied) allows you to view the images taken with the camera on your computer, and the optional Nikon Capture 3 lets you view and edit the RAW image (NEF format) data.
