The Coolpix P5100 - Designed for the photographers looking for more creative control in a compact camera, the 12.1 megapixel Coolpix P5100 has the ability to capture every last detail, while also providing creative freedom to crop and edit. It features a 3.5x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens, Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization, as well as an optimized image menu for producing high-quality images that look stunning in any size.

The P5100 offers program, shutter, aperture and manual exposure modes that allow photographers increased creative control over their photos. Adding to the camera?s versatility is its compatibility with add-on system components, such as Nikon?s telephoto and wide angle lens converters.

The Coolpix P5100 features a quality-crafted body that feels immediately familiar in the hand. Made of solid magnesium alloy, the body features a quality finish, a comfortable grip covered in grid-pattern rubber, as well as an optical viewfinder to aid composition in any light condition. The built-in accessory shoe adds support for Nikon Speedlights and advanced i-TTL flash control.

To ensure sharp and steady images, this camera boasts an anti-shake mode that combines the benefits of Optical VR image stabilization and Nikon?s exclusive Best Shot Selector, (BSS) that snaps multiple frames and automatically selects the best one. The P5100 has an optical viewfinder and an incredibly bright, high resolution 2.5-inch LCD monitor. The P5100 is powered by a Li-ion rechargeable battery.

New EXPEED Image Processing System - Top-of-the-line performance and stunning image quality are staples of the Coolpix P5100. Sporting the new EXPEED image processing system combined with enhanced high sensitivity capabilities to ensure the best picture quality. The EXPEED image processing system enhances noise reduction and improves the signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio that preserves image quality even when shooting at higher ISO settings. The P5100 extends the light sensitivity range to ISO 3200, which makes it easier to capture fast moving subjects, even in lower light conditions.

Simple Yet Advanced Functionality - P5100 users can also take advantage of the new mode dial which provides quick access to a selection of 15 different scene-optimized modes, movie modes, and macro mode. The new graphical user interface has enhanced the pop-up design, and allows for more precise menu navigation and interaction. Nikon has incorporated its user-friendly Imaging Innovations into the new line of Coolpix cameras, designed to make the photo-taking process easier and more intuitive. These technologies, referred to as Nikon In-Camera Innovations include In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, D-Lighting, and Face Priority AF. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically detects and corrects red eye, a common condition that occurs in flash photography. In playback mode, D-Lighting compensates for excessive back-light or insufficient flash in images. The P5100 has PictBridge support and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.

Nikon?s enhanced Face-Priority AF automatically finds and focuses on one person?s face or up to 12 people?s faces within one frame. Face-Priority AF provides faster speed and sharper focus to produce clear, crisp portraits wherever the subjects are positioned in the frame.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix P5100 Digital Camera (Black):

I've really enjoyed the P5100. I am a serious amateur with 30 years experience with SLR's. I love my Nikon DSLR, and am lusting after the D300, but wanted a smaller point-and-shoot for snapshots of the kids, business travel photography, impromptu street portraits, etc. The P5100 has done wonderfully well for those purposes.

While low-light performance can be problematic with both noise and auto-focus being issues, I understand that this is pretty much consistent with the category. Sometimes I wish there was a bit more length to the zoom, although generally I have been quite pleased with the lens. I also have been disappointed occasionally by shutter lag as well, but - all in all - I'd say it has been a great camera.

At the end of the day, I love my P5100. It does everything I want it to. The ergonomics and size/weight are wonderful. It takes marvelous pictures with vibrant colors and, typically, impressive sharpness too.

This certainly doesn't make me want a D300 any less, but I definitely am enjoying it and expect to keep it rather busy - even after I get the D300!
