The Nikon Coolpix P5100 is designed to satisfy the needs of photography enthusiasts, and professional photographers looking for a compact yet versatile digital camera. It provides an astounding 12.1 effective megapixels of resolution, and combined with Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image processor, the P5100 reproduces the finest details and subtlest tones with precision and clarity, even when taking advantage of sensitivity settings as high as ISO 3200. Furthermore, the precision 3.5x Zoom Nikkor lens is endowed with Nikon's proven optical lens shift VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization system that counteracts the effects of camera shake in lower light or when shooting unsteady subjects to help achieve sharper results.
The mode dial of the Coolpix P5100 allows users to quickly access four advanced exposure modes that offer both enthusiasts and more advanced photographers greater personal control over the camera. In addition the camera is programmed with a variety of automated and scene modes that provide for the simplest operation. It is easy to compose your shots on the 2.5-inch high-resolution LCD monitor that provides a wide 170-degree viewing angle for easier framing and more reassured shooting, and there is also an optical viewfinder to aid composition, particularly in brightly lit conditions.
The quality-crafted body of the Coolpix P5100 is made of a durable magnesium alloy, and features a quality finish, with a comfortable grip covered in grid-pattern rubber. The cameras capabilities can also be expanded with the availability of optional converter lenses that further extend the cameras wide-angle and telephoto reach, plus the built-in accessory shoe adds support for Nikon Speedlights and advanced i-TTL flash control.
