  • 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.

  • Excerpt: "...to email addresses or to Nikon picture server not to a computer! In terms of picture quality the FX33 took far superior pictures, the Leica lens is legendary and having a small lens the S51c is prone to picking out dust especially using the flash. The camera also uses proprietary cables for data transfer when I think USB should be standard. I sent the camera back under warranty because more and more dust appeared under the first layer of the viewing ...
  • Pros: Sleek, no barrel lens, quick
  • Cons: Picture quality, build quality, Limited WiFi application, menus not intuituve
