Nikon's Coolpix S5, unveiled earlier this year, is a svelte 6 megapixel shooter with a 2.5-inch LCD,
non-extending 3x zoom lens and lots of scene modes for point-and-shoot novices. And, as reviewed by DCViews, it offers
good image quality, with "excellent" color and "perfect" auto-focusing and auto-exposure, at a
price of about $300. Those looking for manual controls should look elsewhere, of course. However, DCViews, perhaps with
an eye towards Mother's Day, sees this as "an elegant ladies' camera." We assume there are plenty of guys who
would be happy with this one's features, or with its big brother, the S6, which adds WiFi for about $50 more.
