5000

I will say the 5000 takes some of the most beeautiful sunrise and sunset images of any camera.

All great images.

What settings and any add on lenses might you be using.

Also have a 5000 with the 3x tele and the wide angle.

Thanks for posting these.

I have a bunch of 5000 photos. Have posted a few. Prob no one can see a difference :>)))

My wife Leigh likes her 8800. She has gotten some excellent shots with it. I on the other hand cannot figure it out and she says I mess it up everytime I touch it. :rolleyes:

Hi Gale,

Most of my shots in landscapes on this camera were either with the wide angle lens, or just the normal camera lens, I also used a UR E5 adapter with a step up ring so I can use a 52mm nikon circ polarizer. With the wide angle I didn't use any filter. The chimney rock shot was with the wide angle and the other shots were at the widest setting (24mm equiv) in auto everything mode, with circ polarizer on the camera. Yes that is right auto everything with the flash turned off. I used matrix metering on this camera all the time. ISO 100, It was a great outdoor landscape camera. I have sold several prints shot with this camera from the 2002 road trip.

thanks for looking.

Wade

Don, Patrick, Heiko, and Phil,

thanks for the kind words, and the time to look at these "old" images. On my websites more and more of te images are with the D70 gear, but still some of my best landscapes are still from the CP5000 days.

cheers,

Gale, Thos, Phil,Nick, Gordon,

Thanks for the look at the images and all of your kind words. Some of these images have fond places in my heart as they are some of the first "quality" images I started producing in the digital world. Many of them hark back to 2002, Yes only a bit over three years, but that was my first summer with a decent digital camera. I bought it for the Great 10,000 mile roadtrip to the NW and Alaska and Artic Circle. Hard to believe that I paid $1200 for something that is now worth maybe $200.00 but if I average it out over the 10,000 shots it doesn't seem so bad. Plus i didn't have to worry about developing 60-80 rolls of film on that trip alone. That also helped with the cost of the camera! lol

Being a "prosumer" camera I experiemented that summer with the settings, manual shooting, and I relearned stuff from my early 35mm film days that helped prepare me for the DSLR Plunge. The transition was super smooth this past fall, but I Still miss on landscapes that sharp DOF without figuring out any hperfocal math! lol

Feel free to post your CP5000 shots here, lets go down memory lane.....

Stunning shots, really excellent. The CP5000 was my very first digital camera, cost an arm and a leg here in South Africa back then. I believe it was very capable, but in your shots you have shown, just like it should be, that the camera is just a small part of the equation, its all your skill! Those are shots to be truly proud of (esp 1 and 4)!!

Ah, the good old NTF days :rolleyes:. My gallery still has many CP995 and CP5700 pictures in it that I number among my best. Nikon did some marvellous innovating with the Coolpix series.

Yes those were the days, I even lurked for over 6-7 months during the heyday of the 995 and CP5000 before joining when I finally bought the camera.

I still love your CP5700 hummer shots and Your FC shots. but the ballet shot... to die for Frank.
