The Nikon Coolpix S51 is essentially identical to the S51c, save for the removal of that model's WiFi features. The Nikon Coolpix S51 has a sleek two-tone body that houses a prism-folded Nikkor-branded 3x optical zoom lens, a whopping 3.0" LCD display with 230,000 pixels, plus a few clever technologies besides. "D-Lighting" is an exposure correction technology, and is combined with a face-priority AF function (capable of detecting up to five faces in a frame), an in-camera red-eye fix function - the three working together at a press of the One-Touch Portrait button to capture the best possible portrait image.

The Nikon S51 also offers optical image stabilization, and the camera saves images on Secure Digital cards, or in a not-so-generous 13MB of internal memory. The camera includes USB 2.0 High Speed and video output technology. Other features include a built-in flash strobe, a macro mode that focuses to 1.6 inches, and power from a Lithium Ion battery.

The Nikon Coolpix S51 ships in the USA from September 2007 priced at about US$280.
