Nikon Coolpix S5100

Camera manufacturers do promise their users with the ability to click better pictures in challenging lighting conditions, especially if the user chooses not to use the flash. Many cameras that claim to offer good night times shooting do not end up actually delivering what they have promised. This is precisely the reason why consumer complaints about night time shooting never seem to decrease. Nikon conducted a survey wherein it also realised the same. Thus, when it came to coming up with the Coolpix S5100, it equipped this camera with four different user friendly night time shooting technologies, for blur free pictures even in challenging light conditions. The Coolpix S5100 is a 12.2mp and 5x optical zoom camera with Vibration Reduction and other useful features.

Design and Functioning

Measuring only 21.6mm in depth and weighing a mere 115gs, the Coolpix S5100 from Nikon is a treat for those who enjoy slim cameras which come in minimalistic designs and very few controls. Aimed at the youngest section of the consumer base, this camera comes in exciting colours of Cool Lavender, Fuchsia Pink, Midnight Black, Blood Red, Royal Blue and Metallic Silver. The new COOLPIX S5100 has been developed to enable the simple, blur-free capture of nighttime shots with less noise. In addition to the four nighttime shooting technologies mentioned above, the camera is equipped with a new function that enables the camera to automatically distinguish between hand-held shooting and shooting with the camera mounted on a tripod and provide the optimum response to shooting conditions regardless of lighting levels. Also, the camera promises advanced flash control and lens shift VR image stabilization combine with enhanced Motion Detection and ISO 3200 capability at any image size to help ensure beautiful results when the lights are low. Auto detection and exposure setting for tripod and handheld shooting further ensures a higher ratio of keepers. With fast start-up time, rapid AF focusing and quick shot-to-shot turnaround time, the COOLPIX S5100 will never let one moment of memory slip from its click. A single press of a button lets the user begin recording 720p high-definition movies with ease and speed that to ensure simple ways to make videos. This camera contains 32MB of internal memory and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
