Alongside the S1100pj projector camera, Nikon introduces the CoolPix S5100 point-and-shoot digital camera. Sits between S6000 and S4000, the sleek S5100 sports a fast start-up time, a short shutter-release time and features one-touch HD 720p movie recording at 30 fps.
The Nikon S5100 packs a 12.2 Megapixel sensor, a 5x Optical Zoom lens, a 4-way VR Image Stabilization System with ISO settings to 3200, a 2.7-inch LCD display. It includes the tripod detection function that detects handheld or tripod shooting and automatically selects the ideal exposure, ISO sensitivity and shutter speed in order to reduce image blur and ensure sharp photos. The camera also offers 18 scene modes, Scene Auto Selector, Subject Tracking and Nikon’s Smart Portrait System.
Nikon CoolPix S5100 will be available in October for $179.95. It comes in black, purple, blue and pink.
