Nikon Coolpix 5900
5.1 megapixels (effective); 3x optical zoom/4x digital zoom; auto focus only; program exposure only; JPEG format only; proprietary Lithium-Ion battery; movie mode with sound
The all-metal Nikon Coolpix 5900 offers 5-megapixel resolution in a compact and easy-to-use package. Similar to many of the other 5-megapixel cameras available today, the Nikon 5900 operates well as a point & shoot camera and offers multiple preset scene modes that make manual controls largely unnecessary. Two functions make the Nikon 5900 different from competitors' models, however: an in-camera redeye reduction that Nikon claims can eliminate redeye without the need for computer software, and a portrait mode that is capable of locating the subject's face automatically.
