Summary: For the price, this is an excellent point and shoot camera. Great quality pictures and stunning HD videos make this $70 camera worth every cent! The battery life is not quite as long as other cameras I've owned, but as long as you remember to charge it, it's not a problem.
Summary: I have bought more than 12 cameras for friend and me. I tried canon, panasonic lumix, and kodak. I studied and enjoyed them. My daughter needs a small camera for her project. I told myself that I should try another brand - nikon this time. I compared several types and pick the nikon coolpix S5100. After my daughter received this camera, it never produced a good image. the picture looks good in the screen of camera, but really bad in computer.
Summary: This camera worked great for a few months and then all at once it started to destroy batteries. I kept purchasing(3) high end recommended batteries and after about a month after they charged they went dead and would not recharge. This holds true for every battery I purchased. I tried the batteries in my friends camera and they would not longer charge for her either. This has turned out to be a very expensive camera to operate.
