Nikon CoolPix railway museum photos

When testing the Nikon Coolpix P5000 digital compact camera, I took it along when I visited a piece of Dutch railway history, the Railway museum in Utrecht. The Railway museum is located in the Maliebaan station and gives visitors a glimpse of the past. Most of the test pictures were taken inside the railway museum, including a large depot where diverse old trains stand established. The lighting conditions were full of contrast ; darkness between the trains with spots of sunlight from the roof here and there. Although the Nikon Coolpix P5000 compact camera has an optical image stabilizer, I had to use a high ISO regularly to achieve the desired shutter speed or aperture.

The Nikon P5000 camera is a handy compact digital camera for photographers who ask a lot of their camera. It may not be a replacement for a DSLR camera, but it does have settings for photographers who like to determine a shot themselves, such as aperture and shutter speed priority. The image stabilizer is always on in an environment like the Railway museum. Taking photographs of such large objects often requires a large depth of field and cannot be done with a low ISO and image stabilisation without long shutter speeds.

Nikon Coolpix P5000 Test Photos
The sample images were made with a production model of the Nikon Coolpix P5000 camera and must be judged accordingly. The thumbnail format and large format pictures have been reduced for easy viewing and compressed in order to guarantee quicker loading times. The larger images are the original, unprocessed images.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
