Linked in this post are various articles and discussions that give tips and tricks on getting the best out of the Nikon P5000, or on little-known features.
Where to download the P5000 user manuals?
Two Nikon P5000 user guides are provided, the COOLPIX P5000 User Guide and COOLPIX P5000 Quick Start Guide, and you can access the PDF documents at Nikon Europe.
Tips and tricks
- The P5000 provides blinking highlights, a histogram, image name, exposure mode (P, S, A, M etc), shutter speed, aperture, EV and ISO in Playback mode.
- The ISO can be set to any value (even Auto ISO) in the M mode.
- It’s well-known that the P5000’s auto focusing system is not as snappy as, say the one found in the Powershot G7, so Sam Knopfler shares some tips on camera settings that optimize the P5000 AF.
