Photos: Hands-on with the Nikon Coolpix P5100

The Nikon P5100 is the flagship of the Coolpix range: a bridge camera with myriad SLR-style features in a compact body

The Nikon P5100 is the flagship camera in the Coolpix range, a bridge camera packing SLR-style features into a compact frame. It docked at Crave this week and looks like a very able seaman.

It ships 12.1 megapixels, a 3.5x optical zoom -- equivalent to 35-123mm -- and EXPEED digital image processor. The sensor is a decent-sized 1/1.72-inch CCD, and the hull is made from magnesium.

So let's weigh anchor and board the good ship Crave on our latest voyage, by clicking through the links for more photos. -Rich Trenholm
