'A simple feature set and basic shooting options will serve casual snapshooters'
'it comes at a much cheaper $349 retail price.'
'LCD and built-in WiFi capability'
'The S5's LCD screen is so shiny that in basically any type of (daytime) outdoor lighting it behaves like a mirror, making it almost useless for framing and composition -- and that is a major fault since there's no optical viewfinder'
'even if you never use the Wi-Fi functionality, this is one of very best 8-megapixel compacts available.'
'it comes with a little something extra - wireless technology'
'In principle that method is great, but I tried it with two different shipping versions of the Coolpix P1, four different computers, and two separate network routers--and never managed to get a successful connection.'
'it has a poor continuous-shooting rate of 0.7 to 1.4 frames per second'
'Nikon exclusive BSS (Best Shot Selector) selects and saves the best of a series of several shots.'
'Looks a bit dull.'
'Although the Nikon Coolpix 5900's menus are easy to understand, frequent trips to the system can be annoying because the choices take up multiple pages (the Shooting and Setup menus run three pages each with 14 and 15 options, respectively), and there are no shortcuts to access the option you need.'
