Today the Nikon Coolpix 5400 Review was posted on the Digital Photography Review site. The 5400 is the successor of the 5000. It still has the best things of the old model like excelent Macro capabilities (1 cm minimal distance) and the Flip-out and twist LCD monitor. I think I would highly like the new mode-dial witch I find to be more user friendly then the software menus.
When I was looking for a digital cam I planned to to buy the CoolPix 5000. Unfortunately, the supplier was out of stock and I came home with a CoolPix 5700. My reasoning was that I needed a small camera for snapshots, which I could always take with me and the 5700 was somewhat bukier. However, the additional zoom (8 times) and electronic finder make it a much better choice then the 5000.
