Nikon Launches P5000 Digital Camera

The Coolpix P5000 produces high image quality with flexible control

Nikon has added the Coolpix P5000 to the Nikon Coolpix Performance Series of digital cameras.

The P5000 boasts 10 effective megapixels, a 3.5x Zoom-Nikkor glass lens, an optical viewfinder, and a high resolution 2.5-inch LCD monitor with anti-reflection coating. The P5000 incorporates a new advanced image processing engine, which optimizes low light performance and color reproduction, and Nikon's optical VR image stabilization, which compensates for camera shake.

"The COOLPIX P5000 was designed for the photographer who enjoys a high level of control, advanced imaging technologies and the ability to take creative control of their photography," says Bill Giordano, General Manager Marketing, COOLPIX for Nikon Inc. "The P5000 will be compatible with system-expanding accessories that will allow photographers take their creativity and images to new heights."

With 10 megapixels of resolution, photographers can capture the finest details in their images, as well as have the ability to crop creatively and produce large prints. The 3.5x Zoom-Nikkor glass lens provides compositional versatility when zooming in for tight close ups or zooming out to capture expansive landscapes.

The VR stabilizes images displayed on the 2.5 inch LCD, which makes it easier to frame and capture images. Another advantage of the optical VR image stabilization is that it helps achieve smoother action in the movie shooting modes of the P5000 and when using the optional TC-3ED Tele converter with 378mm of telephoto performance.

The P5000 also comes with Nikon's PictureProject software, which makes transferring, organizing, editing and sharing photos easy. Furthermore, the P5000 has PictBridge support and is compatible with SDHC cards.

The COOLPIX P5000 will be available in the US in March 2007 and has an MSRP of $399.95.
