12.2 megapixel Nikon Coolpix S5100 camera
The Nikon Coolpix S5100 is a slim and stylish camera with 12.2 megapixels, which gives you high performance in any situation with its easy-to-use functions. Even at night, when images can be more difficult to capture, you can rely on getting clear, crisp pictures every time with lens-shift type VR (Vibration Reduction), enhanced Motion Detection, and a ground-breaking flash control system. The Nikon S5100 will detect if you are holding the camera, rather than using a tripod, and will automatically select the most appropriate settings to reduce image blur and make sure you capture beautiful pictures every time.
Record videos and photos with the Nikon S5100 camera
With improved response performance from the Expeed 2 processing system you will never miss that perfect shot, even if your subject is moving. And if you want to capture more of the moment, then a dedicated video button allows you to quickly and easily record video in 720p HD quality. Although the Nikon Coolpix S5100 incorporates a 5x zoom NIKKOR lens starting at wide-angle 28mm, the sporty, metal, rounded body design is only 21.6 mm (0.9-inch) thick so it will easily fit in a bag or pocket.
