My husband bought this camera for me Last Christmas 2006. I was happy for awhile ..has good quality on some pictures but poor taking pctures in the dark!Also, Its now not working . Now it's charging but screen doesnt show up!'This camera is so sensitive also if you even accidently bang it or drop it!I regret buying this camera! It's price its too expensive for this camera. It's not worth buying! Now i got mself Sony -super steady shot. I'm happy with it =) .Nikon sucks! Didn't last that long =(

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S5 Digital Camera- 2.5'' LCD:

When I first got this camera, I was disappointed. Pictures of landscapes may be a bit grainy (although, if you're printing 4x6s, they're fine). When shooting in low lighting, you absolutely MUST use a tripod (although, the camera does warn you with a blinking hand that you're moving too much). Takes fantastic macro shots that could be confused for photos taken with a DSLR. Because of it's macro feature, I really love this camera. I also love the size and that I'm able to just fit it into my pocket. I would recommend this camera if you don't need to take a lot of photos in low light settings and if you want a macro that is superior to that of most point and shoots.

I was very disappointed, it's small easy to carry but who wants to carry a camera that doesn’t work? I find myself using my old camera, or just becoming frustrated and telling others to fwrd me their pictures after an event.

Loved the size and that it is convenient to carry anywhere and anytime. Love Nikon products...have had Canon in the past...Only thing lacking is high resolution for distance scenery shots so will probably upgrade.
