Nikon Coolpix E5700 (intro 2002) 5 megapixel, 8x zoom – 35-280mm equivalent in 35mm film camera terms, magnesium body, uses compact flash card…The 5700 was very pricey when new. Recently I saw it listed as used for $299 on Henry’s Cameras website. It has what seems today to be a postage stamp sized, articulating 1.5 inch screen. The camera was introduced in May 2002. I have used a Nikon Speedlight 80DX with this camera. Although the balance is a bit special. It makes great flash shots. The EVF, electronic viewfinder was usable, especially in bright sun which made the LCD awkward to use.  I had a lot of fun with this very solid feeling camera.  I will recharge the battery and give it a go in 2013.  Perhaps that will cure me of my advertising driven burn to buy a new camera.

The shot of Grace was taken in August of 2012.  Since then I have acquired  a multi-card reader to get data from the 5700’s compact flash card.
