This 12.2 Megapixel model has excellent 5x wideangle zoom range equivalent to 28-140mm on a traditional film camera, for everything from group shots to distant details. The Nikkor glass optics draw on many decades of Nikon’s expertise in lens manufacture.
Expeed C2 Image Processor
For the processing heart of the camera, Nikon have tailored each chip to the model it is used in, ensuring fast and efficient operation with high image quality. Many of the functions below are possible thanks to this image processor.
4-Way VR (Vibration Reduction)
The Nikon Coolpix S5100 employs a 4-way assault on shaky images. These functions are:
Optical (Lens Shift) VR – mechanically adjusts lens position to compensate for camera shake
Up to ISO 3200 sensitivity at full resolution – allows faster shutter speeds to still be used as light levels fade
Motion Detection – automatically detects subject movement within the frame and sets shutter speed and ISO sensitivity accordingly
Best Shot Selector – takes up to 10 consecutive shots and selects the sharpest one
The Coolpix S5100 uses this feature to keep your subject in focus for as long as it is in the frame.
Tidy up your images while they’re still on the camera using built-in image editing software including Quick Retouch and D-Lighting.

Smile Timer – Fires the shutter when your subject smiles
In-Camera Red-Eye FixTM – Automatically corrects this unsightly effect from flash pictures…you won’t even know they had red-eye
Face Priority AF for up to 12 faces in a frame – focuses on up to 12 people at once
Blink Proof – Takes 2 shots in quick succession – selects the one where there is no blinking
Blink Warning – An alternative to the above which just advises you when your subject may have blinked
