Features

The CoolPix S5100 is part of Nikon's COOLPIX S-series model that incorporates functions that allows users to capture optimized under dim lighting, shoot at night, and provide a more natural look when the flash is used. The camera features four nighttime shooting technologies and 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. This provides users with optimum response to shooting conditions regardless of lighting levels. It also supports high-definition movie recording function, the high-speed power-up and smart portrait function. The low light optimization is supported by a new image-processing engine, EXPEED C2, and provides noise-reduction processing technology that reduces noise on image quality in pictures taken at sensitivities up to ISO 1600 (ISO 3200 with manual ISO sensitivity specification. It also features motion detection where the camera detects camera shake and subject movement with shooting, and automatically compensates by controlling shutter speed and ISO sensitivity; Lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function; Flash control and High-sensitivity sync that provides users with bright, natural looking photos with less blur, even in dimly lit or dark surroundings; wide-area backlighting identification algorithm which reduces the number of unsatisfactory shots taken in backlight situations; hand-held/tripod night landscape detection function that lets the camera automatically distinguish between hand-held shooting and shooting using a tripod, and then adjusts ISO sensitivity and shutter speed accordingly. The COOLPIX S5100 is also equipped with a high-definition (1280 × 720, 30 fps) movie recording function and a dedicated movie-record button for quick and simple movie recording. The CoolPix S5100 comes in pink, blue, red, purple and black color options.
