Nikon In-Camera Innovations Makes taking great pictures easy!

VR Optical Image Stabilization - Make camera shake a thing of the past. Incorporating highly effective optical VR image stabilization into its slim, compact dimensions, the Coolpix S51 produces sharper, more satisfactory shots.

ISO 1600 Capability - What''s more, high sensitivity up to ISO 1600 creates new opportunities to take sharper, more natural looking photos in lower lighting conditions.

3.0-inch LCD monitor - A large, bright LCD monitor makes it a cinch to compose shots and play them back anywhere. Thanks to its wide 160-degree viewing angle, it''s easy for everyone to gather round and see. And with the advantage of an anti-reflection coating, it allows images to be seen clearly even in direct sunlight.

Wave-surface design - Not only does the Coolpix S51 have the power to take simply stunning pictures, but it''s also exceptionally elegant. Its eye-catching wave-surface design sets a high standard for quality throughout the camera, while its smooth curves and beautiful finish blend operational ease with stylish sophistication.

Pictmotion - Pictmotion lets users select 200 favorite images, and movies, then combine them with music (5 pieces pre-installed, 10 pieces loadable) and visual styles to create an entertaining audiovisual show for enjoyment anywhere. Now offering VGA quality, Pictmotion offers even clearer display when viewed through TV output.

In-Camera Red-EyeFix - This in-camera feature automatically fixes most typical occurrences of red-eye.

D-Lighting - Compensates for underexposed images or insufficient flash by automatically adding light and detail to selected shots where needed, without affecting properly exposed areas.

One-touch portrait button take satisfaction further - Add a touch of genius to your photography. A handy standalone button provides easy, direct access to three unique Nikon image innovations ? Face-priority AF finds and focuses on up to 5 faces, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix for better flash photography, and D-Lighting that corrects exposure after the fact.

Camera malfunction
By madfatherVerified Reviewer from memphis, tn on 1/12/2008
Cons:
Malfunction

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S51 Digital Camera (Brown):

Daughter got camera for Christmas. Today, January 11th, the LED screen just went blank. [...] Probably costly repair and looks like it may have to go to manufacturer and that will require shipping. Other than that, this is the 2nd nikon she had and has loved the camera.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S51 Digital Camera (Brown):

I currently own an older Canon digital compact (PowerShot A95) and a Canon DSLR (Rebel XT). So this was my first Nikon. I was attracted to the small size, look, and LCD size of this camera. However, I ultimately returned this one because of a VERY long shutter lag (>1 sec on average) and HIGH noise in a lot of my pictures. I ended up getting the Canon SD 750 instead and I am very happy with it. I was disappointed that the Nikon was not on par with other cameras in this range. On the plus side, Ritz took it back with a full refund - kudos on that. Make sure you are happy with the shutter lag and noise before looking seriously at this one.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S51 Digital Camera (Brown):

I tend to be hard on things and this camera is so much more sturdier. Have had both Casio's and Nikkon's and definately prefer the latter. Definately the bang for your buck. You get four times what you do with other similar camera's.

I have always used either a 35mm or a digital with the SLR style body. There is a setting that works very well for all photography purposes (action, low-light, scenic, and portriats).
