  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S5100 is a very small ultra-compact camera with a stabilized wide-angle lens, offering a 5X range from 28 to 140mm, in 35mm-equivalent terms. Up to relatively recently, there was very little competition in terms of wide-angle ultra-compact digital cameras. This is no longer the case, putting the S5100 face-to-face with more competitors than ever . The Coolpix S5100 turned in an good performance for a high-resolution ultra-compact.
  • Pros: Quick and reliable autofocus, Short shutter lag, Excellent metering system, Rich image colors up to ISO 400, Image noise under control up to ISO 800, Reliable automatic white balance, Excellent LCD visibility, Easy to use interface, Good build quality
  • Cons: Slow shot to shot speed, Nearly useless ISO 3200, Unusable continuous drive, Video takes 2.5s to start, cuts off 1s, Impossible to setup initial framing for HD video, Battery charges in camera, Poor tripod mount placement, Below average battery life, Weak flash

  • Conclusion: But for those who want nothing more than a camera that produces competent results without the taxing nomenclature of apertures and f-stops, the S5100 is a very solid choice.

  • Excerpt: It seems that the humble snapshot camera is not so humble any more. That said, pocket or 'travel' zooms with broader than average focal ranges, HD video shooting and a host of clever image-enhancing features are two a penny above the £200 mark. So what does this latest Nikon, falling just shy of that price point, offer to help it stand apart from the pixel-packing scrum?

  • Excerpt: The compact camera market shows no sign of becoming less cutthroat. No sooner has Nikon announced the high-end P7000 , designed to go head-to-head with the Canon G12 , than the company unleashes an assault on the low-end of the market, with the 12.2 megapixel S5100.

  • Conclusion: Die flotte Auslöseverzögerung und die komfortable Bedienung sprechen für die Nikon Coolpix S5100. Über die Qualität einer Digitalkamera entscheidet jedoch in erster Linie die Bildqualität – und dabei enttäuscht die Nikon. Andere Kameras bieten mehr Leistung bei einem niedrigeren Preis.
  • Pros: Schneller Autofokus, Hilfreiche Automatiken
  • Cons: Hoher Detailverlust, Sichtbares Rauschen, Kurze Akkulaufzeit

  • Conclusion: Mały kieszonkowy aparat Nikona, który został przystosowany do rejestracji filmów w rozdzielczości 720p. Atutem tej konstrukcji jest także szerokokątny, pięciokrotny zoom optyczny stabilizowany mechanicznie. Uwagę zwraca też zawrotne tempo uruchamiania się cyfrówki – Coolpix S5100 czyni to w około pół sekundy.
  • Pros: Jasna i szerokokątna optyka, Mechaniczny stabilizator obrazu, Rejestracja filmów 720p, Bardzo szybkie uruchamianie się
  • Cons: Przeciętna ostrość obrazu
