Nikon's new S5 ultra-compact is a slightly reduced version of the robust and magnificent S6, but even in the shadow of its bigger brother, the S5 can hold its own. It still has all the same great features, like integrated support for Wi-Fi, which allows for instantaneous image transfer to your computer and direct printing (with a printer adapter). The PictMotion functions also allow for in-camera slideshows with custom music, displayed on the large 2.5 inch screen. It's not the luxury model like the S6 (really the main difference is the S6's larger LCD), but it's still loaded with neat features that will get the neighbors talking about your hot new toy.
