Nikon Coolpix 5900 review

Check out the 5.1-megapixel Nikon Coolpix 5900 which combines state-of-the-art technology, image quality, and speed, with a unique all-metal design to give consumers what they truly desire in a digital camera.

This sleek, all-metal digital camera feature state of the art digital technology, such as the first, big two-inch LCD screen in the lineup and the new Face-priority AF feature, along with a sharp design that is perfect for the customer who values style along with substance. Add a big, bright two-inch LCD screen making images easier to review and correct than on most consumer digital cameras.

CNET have posted a Nikon Coolpix 5900 review and rated the camera a 6.8 out of 10 or Good.
"Snapshot photographers will like the Coolpix 5900's good image quality, generous assortment of scene modes (five with framing-assist options), and Best Shot mode, which saves only the sharpest image in a series. But the paucity of manual controls reduces the allure for photo enthusiasts, while poor low-light autofocus and an inaccurate optical viewfinder will disappoint photographers of all sorts.

A few fun and useful features spice up this competent 5-megapixel point-and-shoot Nikon Coolpix 5900, aimed at snapshot photographers."

Seems like a fine camera for snapshot photographers but don't expect a lot of manual controls.
