There are some key features when choosing a digital camera. First and probably most important thing is to decide what kind of camera you need (pocket camera, DSLR or any other type).
When you have that all figured out the probably the next most important thing is megapixels. People often search cameras in a specific megapixel range. They hear somewhere something about megapixels or read it in the magazine that higher is better so that is another key feature that is going to make their mind when choosing digital camera.
Another important thing is zoom. Bigger zoom capabilities often make some mediocre models real best sellers.
The form factor is another key feature in cameras, especially for the pocket ones. The first impression of a pocket camera is very important.
And finally there is the price. It should meet your expectations or you will just switch to the next model that is more affordable.
All these factors are very important when when choosing a digital camera. And if you are currently looking for a pocket camera with lots of megapixels, high zoom and and very affordable price we have the right one for you.

But none of these is the greatest thing about this camera. The biggest surprise in the Nikon Coolpix S5100 is its price. It is currently on sale at eBay for less than a $100.
