Nikon Coolpix 5900 announcement clippings

For easier composition and anytime viewing, the COOLPIX 5900 features a large 2.0-inch amorphous silicon TFT LCD monitor. Bright and clear, this makes it easy to view images at any time. It also makes it much easier to navigate the new Graphic User Interface (GUI), which has been specially designed to allow the user to select functions on the main menu by either name or icon.

As for performance, the COOLPIX 5900  features high-precision Multi AF with a choice of 99 manually selectable areas, 5 choices for Auto select AF and the advantage of the new Face-priority AF function, which can be easily selected when using the Portrait Scene Mode. As its name suggests, Face-priority AF ensures crisp focus when shooting portraits by automatically sensing the presence of a human face in the frame and setting accurate focus accordingly.
