The battle between CP5700 and D2X

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Gilles, Aug 8, 2005.

  1. Using the same settings in both camera.



    The sceptics with be confuse, quote from Captain Bonhomme.
  2. Look the same to my old eyes....exactly..!!....Nice one - I like it :) 
  3. Well you are certainly getting a lot more out of the CP5700 than I ever could! Was that automatic focus? Guess it had to be, as the manual focus on the 5700 is a joke. I missed an awful lot of shots with my 5700 because it wouldn't focus properly.

    Congratulations, great job. I'll swap you another 5700 for the D2x :lol:
  4. Err I am confused... :?

    For a moment I thought the white specks on each are slightly different, but on closer inspection both images have the same URL and filename, and same size in bytes.

    I don't think it is April at your end of the world is it :wink: ?

  5. Jonathan you are right they were the same picture, i just change them. The one on the bottom is the D2X.
  6. You'd better hide your CP5700, as I can see a few DLSR owners heading your way... ;-)

    #2 does have a thinner DOF and less sharpened look, especially around the details in the middle. But the coolpix does a great job with close-ups. My old 950 does well with that too, but Pa says, focusing is a pain!
  8. Chris i am still trying to find the right adjustment in the D2X to reach the quality of picture i can obtain with the CP5700. As for those old coolpix camera i have seen marvelous pictures coming out of those.
  9. BTW - nice shot on #1.
    This shows that lust apart, good old and faithful gear serves the photographer's best intentions.
    I had a CP5700 for some time and sold it too fast. I missed the portability and the macro function. That's one reason why I bought a CP8800. I even miiss the CP4500 I had before - for candids.
