The Nikon Coolpix S5100 Is A Low-Cost Pocket Cam

Pocket cams are just getting better and better. The just-announced Nikon Coolpix S5100 seems as loaded as anyone could want. Inside the sleek casing is a 12.2MP senor, 4-way VR lens, a 720p@30 movie mode, and even a tripod detection mode that automatically knows when the camera is mounted and selects the appropriate exposure, ISO, and shutter speed. Bright colors, a 2.7-inch LCD and 5X zoom will likely draw in shoppers where the low $179 MSRP closes the deal. October 2010.
