Hi Dmitriy you should start to see them this month (May). Nikon Canada has just released the Broc this week..

Well, the camera was available on-line for several weeks now,.

So I was wondering if anyone already tried it...

Hi Dmitry:.

I got the 5200 just yesterday. So far I have only taken a few pictures with it. I like the camera itself a lot, but so far I like other imaging software better...

I too am interested in this camera, it does look good on paper. But I only have found a few reviews that say it takes bad pictures of skin tones.....

Well I have seen some sample pics on dcresource site but they are not.

Too sharp and clear as compared to other nikon cameras.they seems to.

Be a little soft and not too bright as compared to lesser megapixels nokin cameras .i also notice that noise reduction feature also eats up a lot of details in these cameras .the only good thing is that these pics are taken at iSO 64 .may be a more more ISO setting can bring more bright and sharp pics along with a little bit moise.the 640 * 480 30 FPS movie mode was not too good as it was seems too be a 15 FPS choppy video and stopping too much( you can download it from steves-digicam site)... but other than that other reviews and on paper record features of this camera are great..........

I too am interested in the coolpix 5200, the only review I have read(steves-digicams) gives it a thumbs up, but I am concerned over claims that it takes bad skin tones. I have also seen a picture showing severe barrelling(even to my novice untrained eye).

             I have been unable to find the movie sample for the 5200 on steves-digicam website,could somebody please give me directions? I have read that a choppy video could simply be the result of not having a fast enough sd card,is this correct? This purchase is going to be my first digicam,and I want to make the right decision,does anybody have any suggestions for a decent 5m digicam with movie?.

              Any help anybody can give me on these issues would be greatly appreciated...

Well the only other good 5 mp camera is from sony which offers smooth 30 FPS video along with more manual controls ,big LCD screen 2.5" or 1.8",rechargeable AA batteries.but you have to buy a pro memory stick which is very expensive compared to other memory formats and they dont have manual white balance and strong flash compared to other cameras.For nikon coolpix 3700 and 5200 cameras you have to buy a fast SD card that has write speed of 10mbs or more to have smooth 640 *480 30 FPS videos. sandisk II series and panasonic SD cards are better than other brands. And one final thing about nikon 5200 cameras as this model has not too sharp,bright and crisps pics as compared to other coolpix cameras and many customers are waiting for a firmware update on this matter...
