Nikon Coolpix 5000


Maybe this is what I should get. It's the new Nikon Coolpix 5000. It's still got a swivel display but it looks like a regular camera most of the time (which is good for when you ask somebody else to take the picture since they never seem to get it otherwise)

It doesn't look like it's too big (see the comparision picture to the 995)

And, it's got a optional grip handle that you can put 6 AA batteries in so it solves the battery problem too 😉

It seems like it covers all the problems I had with the 995 and it's 5 megapixels. It also has movie mode WITH AUDIO. Something that was missing from previous Nikons and something that I've grown addicted to with my Sonys. Small movie clips stored with Thumbnails on my PC was far far far more useful and easily reviewable than movies from a video camera.

I want it 😉
