Summary: I love my old 4 Megapixle Nikon Cool Pix, so I thought this one would be even better. Meh. I'm not a big camera person, but just taking regular "point and click" pictures turned out "pixley" and bad quality. Especially if you try to zoom. However, close-up, fine detail pics turned out very nice.
looks like a good item, and a good ebay experience

Summary: This camera was presented accurately and attractively as a compact large format point-and-shoot camera with additional features. The rechargeable battery was included, but there was no memory card or battery charger, so I could not use this camera. The winning bid price seemed low for this camera, so I listed the camera in another ebay auction, and got my purchase price back. Not a bad deal.
Excerpt: The main reason for buying this camera was that the barrel on my old camera broke when it opened in my pocket, this camera has internal lenses so this could not happen. I was comparing this with the FX33, they both had 8M resolutions but the FX33 had a barrel lens and I was still going to put it in my pocket for convenience on a night out. The S51c was quick to start as it has no barrell lens and quite quick to fire after you press the shutter button.
