PS1) NIKON COOLPIX S51C WIFI DIGITAL
From the Manufacturer
The Nikon Coolpix S51c is an outstanding new compact digital camera combining Nikon's distinctive wave-surface design with advanced features that make it easier to take beautiful photos and to share them with friends and family. Built on a custom application of Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image processing concept and incorporating the precision optics of a Nikkor lens, the Coolpix S51c is built to realize optimum performance and maximum image quality.
The Coolpix S51c teams 8.1 effective megapixels of sharp resolution with a new high-performance digital image processing engine and the precision optics of the built-in "right-angle" optical lens shift VR (Vibration Reduction) 3x Zoom-Nikkor lens to produce photos with clarity and true-to-life color. Extended light sensitivity as high as ISO 1600 prevents blurred shots when shooting in lower light or when capturing fast-moving subjects.
Built-in Wi-Fi support brings Internet connectivity to the Coolpix S51c for even greater fun and freedom. Upload shots directly from the camera to Nikon's my Picturetown server for anytime access using Nikon's Picture Bank function, upload them directly to a blog, or use Picture Mail to trigger an e-mail notification to friends anywhere when new pictures are available to view and download. It also includes Pictmotion, which allows users to create audiovisual shows anywhere by simply selecting favorite images and movies and adding music and visual styles.
The 3.0-inch LCD monitor offers a bright and large image that eases composition and viewing, even out in the sun. Control buttons and the user-friendly rotary multi selector are carefully positioned to provide intuitive operation. The smooth contours and refined finish of the aluminum face panel fit comfortably in the hand--both models feature a metallic finish with ultra-violet coating providing a brilliant outer sheen.Nikon Coolpix S51c Feature Highlights
Proven optical lens shift VR image stabilization
Field-proven technology originally developed for interchangeable lenses used in Nikon SLR camera systems, optical lens shift VR image stabilization provides the ability to shoot at shutter speeds as much as three steps slower without blurring the image, while also realizing a smoother viewfinder image that aids composition. A thin VR unit was specially designed to fit the slim dimensions of the Coolpix S51c.
ISO 1600 capability for extended shooting range
Manual sensitivity settings as high as ISO 1600 make it easier to take great-looking pictures in lower lighting conditions or to capture fast moving subjects with outstanding clarity, while the high-performance image processing engine preserves high image quality even when shooting with high ISO settings. Also available is AUTO ISO control, which automatically selects the optimal sensitivity for the shot across a range between ISO 100 and ISO 800, and up to ISO 1600 in High-Sensitivity mode.
my Picturetown for wireless sharing
The Picture Mail button makes it easy to send shots directly from the camera to Nikon's my Picturetown server, allowing instant sharing to friends anywhere. Utilize Picture bank to upload and save pictures with ease onto my Picturetown's secure server.
Expansive 3.0-inch LCD monitor for quality viewing and menu operation
The bright, large 3.0-inch LCD monitor almost defying the compact body proportions features 230,000 dots of high resolution, a wide vertical and horizontal viewing angle of 160 degrees and anti-reflection coating for better display in bright situations, and a new acrylic panel that prevents scratches and fingerprints.

Behind the lens, inside the camera body where it could not be reached for cleaning, was a collection of dirt and "something" that caused spots to appear. It is as though there was mold or some growth having taken place which showed up as small unfocused areas in almost every image. It seemed to depend on the lighting and the focal distance whether the spots were more or less visible. They were, e.g., more apparent in low light conditions than in brighter light, so naturally indoors with flash were the worst ones -- where small details and faces might be the most important parts of the photo, of course.
The shape of the camera body and very smooth satin metal surface make it difficult to hold and to manipulate. What should be a one-handed camera, when necessary, was always a two-handed effort just to keep from losing the thing over a railing, or into the gutter or a bowl of soup.
I bought a Samsung to replace this Nikon and have been very happy with the Samsung's shape, surface texture and image-making performance. I suggest the same choice to others, instead of the Nikon.
For the past two years I have been using my CASIO EX-Z750 7.2mp and loved everything bout it: Shooting modes, picture quality, body durability and most importantly superb battery life. But after its been battered around in my travels I though I would get new one. Since I have previously purchased via Amazon ( gift received) a Nikon D200, I thought I would stick to the same brand......BAD IDEA
The Body of the Nikon S51C seems fairly fragile and is extremely sensitive. The battery/Card lid underneath seems insecure, the shooting modes are limited, have not figured out the WiFi features as it is time-consuming nd I am constantly on the move and the battery-life is pathetic. I no sooner get out at night, take 10 shots and the "Exhausted battery" signal comes on and that is it! So much so, that I hve just hd to spend extra money to buy an additional battery and charged (via Amazon)
I cant wait to get rid of this camera and find a suitable replacement. Sorry Nikon, I thought I was being loyal and have purchase endless lenses and other accessories for my D200 which I absolutely love and more recently purchase the Nikon SLR/LAPTOP nap-sack as my loyalty to the brand, but this product has disappointed me.
