About Nikon S5100

Nikon's CoolPix S5100 Digital Point and Shoot Camera starts with a razor-sharp 5x 28-140 (35mm equivalent) glass zoom lens, adds a 4-way VR image stabilization system and a 12.2 megapixel sensor plus a ton of other great features. You can also shift from stills to 720p HD video in a snap with the S5100's one-touch video recording.

Using a combination of lens-shift vibration reduction (VR); motion detection that automatically adjusts shutter speed and ISO to produce sharp pictures of moving subjects; high ISO up to 3200; and Best Shot Selector (BSS) - a Nikon feature that automatically takes up to 10 photos when the shutter is pressed and selects and saves the sharpest one-the S5100 helps you make the sharpest pictures ever.

Features like Smile Timer, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, Face-Priority AF, Skin Softening and Blink Proof will give you superb portraits time after time automatically. There are 18 scene modes, including Scene Auto Selector, which recognizes the type of scene you're shooting and selects the absolute best settings for that scene. And with Macro mode, you can shoot subjects as close as 0.8" from the lens.
