Nikon Coolpix S5100 prices and specs
The Coolpix S5100 was produced on Aug 17, 2010 and is on sale in USA for $399.99.
The Coolpix S5100 belongs to the category of compact cameras. Its main advantage is a very small size: the photographer can take it anywhere with himself easily. The Nikon Coolpix S5100 is equipped with different automatic modes but you won't take pictures of the same perfect quality in comparison to large sensor compact cameras.
The Coolpix S5100 can make photos at 12 megapixels max resolution. But for better picture quality the more important specification is a sensor size. This camera has a 1/2.3' (6.17 x 4.55 mm) sensor which means that the model will take photos with a lower quality than cameras with larger sensors but instead it has another advantage - the Coolpix S5100 has small dimensions and weight. And if you want to capture photos of the best quality pay attention to Leica Q (Typ 116).
The owner of the Coolpix S5100 will be able to record HD videos that guarantees a good picture quality.
The lens is built into the Coolpix S5100 and the camera owner won't be able to switch it. The lens provides satisfactory 5x optical zoom.
