Nikon 26222B overview

  • 1Description

Nikon's CoolPix S5100 Compact Digital Camera (Black) starts with a razor-sharp 5x 28-140 (35mm equivalent) glass zoom lens, adds a 4-way VR image stabilization system and a 12.2 megapixel sensor plus a ton of other great features, and--voila!--a super little (less than 1" thick) point and shoot camera can be yours. You can also shift from stills to 720p HD video in a snap with the S5100's one-touch video recording.

Using a combination of lens-shift vibration reduction (VR); motion detection that automatically adjusts shutter speed and ISO to produce sharp pictures of moving subjects; high ISO up to 3200; and Best Shot Selector (BSS)--a Nikon feature that automatically takes up to 10 photos when the shutter is pressed and selects and saves the sharpest one--the S5100 helps you make the sharpest pictures ever.

Features like Smile Timer, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, Face-Priority AF, Skin Softening, and Blink Proof will give you superb portraits time after time--automatically. There are 18 scene modes, including Scene Auto Selector, which recognizes the type of scene you're shooting and selects the absolute best settings for that scene. And with Macro mode, you can shoot subjects as close as 0.8" from the lens. 

5x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom-NIKKOR Glass Lens

Versatile 5.0-25.0mm (28-140mm equivalent in 35mm) lens ranges wide to capture landscapes, zooms in to get close to the action. In the NIKKOR tradition of precision optics, the high-quality glass lens delivers superb color and razor-sharp results.

Optical VR Image Stabilization by lens shift minimizes the effects of camera shake.
Motion Detection automatically detects moving subjects and adjusts shutter speed and ISO to compensate for camera shake and subject movement.
High ISO up to 3200 for optimum results when shooting in low light or photographing fast-moving subjects.
Nikon's Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically takes up to ten shots while the shutter is pressed, then selects and saves the sharpest image.

    Nikon 26222B reviews

    CoolPix S5100 Compact Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy camper I'm definitely liking this camera. Right away, I was able to take some stunning shots using the macro setting. And it does a good job adjusting automatically to different lighting conditions. The lithium ion battery is great - it simply recharges itself whenever I connect to my PC or plug it into the wall. I also like the 28mm equivalent wide angle lens. This is very versatile for both indoor and outdoor shots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As advertised...... The CoolPix S5100 as delivered quality pictures and easy of use as advertised so far. We use it for day trips other events when we do not feel like take our SLR along for the ride. Very small, light, but solid enough so it doesn't feel like you are going to break it. Great camera, would recommend to the recreational/average user.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first refurb but not my last Great little camera. Definitely need the macro for close-ups and it works quite well. I changed from Nikon Touch and am glad I did - I prefer buttons to touch screen, and nothing activates unintentionally. I've looked at this camera for a long time and am so glad I got it at refurb price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small pocket camera I use normally a Nikon D90 with several lenses but due to the size, I do not always have it with me. Therefore I got the S5100 - it's a good compromise between size and good quality, plus it takes OK small videos. Now I have it always in my pocket in case I want to take a picture of something - fast - easy - good pictures. I decided to buy this camera foremost for it small size: it fits in my pocket like a small cell phone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use with lots of options I am professional photographer who lacked a point and shoot camera for my own family photos. I decided on a Nikon because that is what I use professionally. The Nikon Coolpix S5100 is lightweight and small enough to toss in your purse. The point and shoot is so easy to use that you don't really need to even refer to the owners manual. The camera has a small built in memory, just in case but unfortunately does not come with a memory card.
