About this item

The Coolpix P5000 is Nikon's new compact digital camera offers advanced functions, ease of operation, and high image quality to satisfy photo and camera enthusiasts. High performance and outstanding image quality are the hallmarks of the Coolpix P5000. Its 10.0 megapixels of sharp resolution gives you the freedom to capture the finest details, crop creatively, and produce beautiful enlargements.

Featuring the compositional freedom of 3.5x optical zoom capability, the Coolpix P5000 incorporates a 36-126mm Zoom - Nikkor lens (35 mm equivalent) that proves handy when zooming in for tight compositions or zooming out to capture sweeping vistas or buildings. The VR image stabilization enhances the shooting experience by counteracting the effects of camera shake in lower light or when shooting unsteady subjects to help achieve sharper results.

This camera's wide-angle 2.5 inch LCD display makes framing a shot easier and capture the moment as intended. The benefits of VR image stabilization also extend to achieve smoother action in the movie shooting modes. Extended light sensitivity ranges up to ISO 3200 and allows a user to shoot even under extreme low light conditions. The Coolpix P5000's new image-processing engine preserves high image quality, even when shooting at high ISO settings.

Logically placed and easily accessed buttons and controls simplify camera operation. This includes the new Mode dial, which provides quick access to a selection of 16 different scene-optimized modes, seven movie modes, Anti-Shake mode and High-Sensitivity mode. The Mode dial also offers a choice of mode such as Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-priority Auto [S], Aperture-priority Auto [A], and Manual [M] exposure modes for even greater control over camera operation for learners as well as advanced photographers.

The Coolpix P5000 features advanced functions which are skillfully packed into a lightweight yet solid body that features a magnesium alloy front panel, an optical viewfinder, a textured finish that is reminiscent of the feel of leather, and a comfortable new grip covered in grid-pattern rubber for a reassuring hold. The Coolpix P5000 ships with a complimentary copy of Nikon's exclusive PictureProject software. Powerful yet delightfully easy to use, PictureProject is the fun and efficient way to organize, edit and share photos with family and friends.

Compatibility with add-on system components further extends the creative possibilities. Converter lens options include a Wide-angle Converter that realizes a focal length of 24mm (35mm equivalent), and a Telephoto Converter that extends the reach of the zoom to 378mm (35mm equivalent). The built-in accessory shoe makes Nikon's advanced i-TTL flash control when working with optional external flashes.
