Editor's Review

The S5100 is smack in the middle of Nikon's 2010 S-series lineup, a general-use, everyman point-and-shoot. It packs a decent 5x zoom, 720p HD video, and a handful of features meant to boost low-light and nighttime performance, including lens-shift stabilization, improved motion detection software, and ISO up to 3200. There's some marketing hyperbole at work here -- Nikon positions it as a low-light performer, but it simply does not have the right sensor or lens to really pull that off -- but it's still a reasonably priced compact that should sell well this holiday season.

Great Camera at an Excellent Price! (bman — 11/06/2010)
I've used Sony cameras for years but this Nikon point and shoot is the fastest I have ever owned. It powers on in one second and is ready to shoot faster than you can say "cheese". The image quality is top notch. Unless you are trying to be a professional or hobbyist photographer and more or less want to preserve those memories and nights out on the town then buy this camera. You will not be disappointed!
