View Full Version : New Camera!

So my wife took some of her money from a recent decorating job and got me a camera for my birthday! Beat that! Just in time for CM.

It seems like a really nice camera too - I am not that up on recent cams though :confused:. It is a Nikon Coolpix P5100, 12.1MP, so in the unlikely event I actually shoot something fairly well it could go to TT.

Here's to a great :Princess:!

I too know nothing about camera's, but I do know that the more MP it is, the better it is, and 12.1 is good.

congrats. Just don't use it to take pictures of Perry with his shirt off.

Not until I can figure out the soft focus setting at least...

My wife and I both have older CoolPix cameras. You should like it a lot. Very easy to use. Ours have proven to be very durable.

DP Review gives it a "recommended" rating (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikonp5100/page16.asp). Looks like a very nice camera.

Hmmm, they didn't seem exactly ecstatic. I took some low light pix last night and it seemed to do fine. Mebbe it is the knowledge and experience of the reviewer in both cases... :hill:

I sure like it compared with our old digital Olympus point and shoot. Seems way faster.
