Nikon Coolpix 5900 and 7900 Review - DCRP

DC Resource Page reviews the Nikon Coolpix 5900 and 7900 digital cameras and writes - 'I ended up liking the Nikon Coolpix 5900 and 7900 quite a bit more than the lower-end CP4600 and CP5600 that I just took a look at. These are two cameras which offer a lot of features for a point-and-shoot camera and they deliver good photo quality, especially if you tweak the sharpness a bit.

The Coolpix 5900 and 7900 are compact but not tiny cameras (wait for the Coolpix S1 if you want that) with sturdy metal frames. They're easy to hold and operate with one hand, and they can go anywhere that you do. The Coolpix 5900 comes in silver while the 7900 comes in a more “professional looking” black. The Coolpixes offer a large 2.0“ LCD that works very well in low light conditions. Photo quality on both cameras is very good, though I would up the sharpness to ”high“, since the images are a little soft at the default sharpness setting. The only other image quality issue I noticed is a tiny bit of blurriness in the corners of some of my photos. Camera performance is good in most areas including startup speed, focusing times, and shutter lag. Low light focusing was very good thanks to the cameras' AF-assist lamps. Battery life was also above average.'
