Nikon Coolpix S5100 Test

 

Nikon Coolpix S5100 Test : Die neue Nikon Coolpix S5100 liegt, was die Typennummer anbetrifft, zwischen der Coolpix S4000 und der S6000. Auch in Bezug auf die Kameraspezifikationen scheint das ziemlich genau hinzukommen. Mit 5-fach optischem Zoom und...

While its feature set may be no more impressive on paper than slightly cheaper rivals, the Nikon Coolpix S5100 is one of the best compact snappers in its broad price range for image sharpness and quality, so worth paying a modest extra for in our...

Nikon Coolpix S5100

 

The Nikon Coolpix S5100 is a very small ultra-compact camera with a stabilized wide-angle lens, offering a 5X range from 28 to 140mm, in 35mm-equivalent terms. Up to relatively recently, there was very little competition in terms of wide-angle...

Quick and reliable autofocus, Short shutter lag, Excellent metering system, Rich image colors up to ISO 400, Image noise under control up to ISO 800, Reliable automatic white balance, Excellent LCD visibility, Easy to use interface, Good build quality

Slow shot to shot speed, Nearly useless ISO 3200, Unusable continuous drive, Video takes 2.5s to start, cuts off 1s, Impossible to setup initial framing for HD video, Battery charges in camera, Poor tripod mount placement, Below average battery life,...

The Nikon Coolpix S5100 is one of many ultra-compact point-and-shoot cameras with a wide-angle lens. This model manages to stand out by its fast and reliable autofocus system, something which is rare among such small cameras. This feature makes it more...

Affordable, attractive, easy-to-use and a great snapper

Nikon Coolpix S5100

 

The Nikon Coolpix S5100 is stylish new 12.2-megapixel digital compact that combines small size with big features, including HD 720p video, Vibration Reduction and Nikon's clever Smart Portrait system, so just how well does it perform? In overall terms,...

Image quality, styling, small size, ease of use, HD movie capture

Low powered flash, optical zoom not possible during video capture, chromatic aberration issues, image noise at high ISOs

In overall terms, while there are similarly specified compacts from other makers for less money available on the market, the modest amount more you pay for this excellent little Nikon is worth considering if you’re in the market for buying a new compact.

Nikon Coolpix S5100 review

 

A tiny compact that's ideal for snapping on the fly

Simple to use ; Neat design ; Great value

Uninspiring movie mode ; Chromatic aberration a recurring problem

The compact camera market shows no sign of becoming less cutthroat. No sooner has Nikon announced the high-end P7000, designed to go head-to-head with the Canon G12, than the company unleashes an assault on the low-end of the market, with the 12.2...

Nikon Coolpix S5100

 

Fast start-up ; Low shutter lag ; Small and compact

Lens exhibits fringing, barrel distortions ; LCD screen small, not very sharp

The S5100 is a pocket-sized camera that will suit photographers on a budget just fine. Anyone else expecting stellar image quality and tons of features should look elsewhere.
