Nikon Coolpix S5100 Digital Camera Features
Speed, ease and great image quality are the results of advanced Nikon imaging technology built into the Coolpix S5100. A versatile 5x 28-140mm optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens and 12.2 megapixels produce stunning pictures and HD movies. The sleek, compact design makes the S5100 convenient to carry, and its automatic features and bright 2.7-inch LCD makes it easy to compose, view and share images. Nikons 4-Way VR Image Stabilization combines four technologies for crisp, sharp pictures, and Nikons Smart Portrait System finds faces, fixes red-eye, softens fine skin lines, provides a blink warning and fires the shutter as the subject smiles.
Advanced Flash Control Enable Capturing, Bright Natural Looking Shots With Less Blur Even Under Dim Lighting Conditions
Hand-held/tripod night landscape detection function
When shooting night landscapes and other nighttime shots, the camera automatically distinguishes between hand-held shooting and shooting using a tripod, and then adjusts ISO sensitivity and shutter speed accordingly. This is the first Nikon camera equipped with the hand-held/tripod night landscape detection function, which enables capture of nighttime shots with less blur. This function makes it possible to capture beautiful photos, as intended, with shooting of nighttime scenes that, until now, have often been blurred.
Superior high-speed response that consistently captures the moment
With fast start-up, focusing speed and quick response while shooting, the Coolpix S5100 offers the high-speed operation that will capture those once-in-a-lifetime shots.
Five advanced technologies for beautiful shots at nightAdvanced flash control and Optical VR image stabilization combine with enhanced Motion Detection and ISO 3200 capability at any image size to help ensure beautiful results even when the lights are low. Auto detection and exposure setting for tripod and handheld shooting further ensures better images under challenging lighting conditions.Note: Auto detection functions only when VR image stabilization is turned on in the setup menu and Night Landscape scene mode is selected, either manually or by Scene Auto Selector.
Superior Image Quality
Nikons Smart Portrait System with Skin Softening
Face-priority AF helps produce more satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure for as many as 12 faces in the framed shot. Skin Softening function detects and analyzes a framed subjects skin, and then adjusts smoothness to produce enhanced results.
Smile Timer automatically releases the shutter when the subject smiles, while its Blink Proof function shoots two sequential frames, then saves the one in which the subjects eyes are widest open. Blink Warning presents an alert when it suspects that someone in the shot has blinked. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects any perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.
Intelligent automated shooting modes that promote carefree shooting
Nikons Scene Auto Selector makes it faster and easier to capture the moment by eliminating the need to manually select a scene mode to match the intended shot. This intelligent function determines the subject, analyzes the surrounding settings, and then automatically selects the appropriate scene mode for optimal results. Subject Tracking enhances the shooting experience by following the subjects movement to ensure clear focus and quick response when that special shutter opportunity presents itself.
Quick Retouch automatically adjusts the contrast and saturation of selected photos to create an enhanced copy with the right finishing touch.
