Posted on Monday, Sep 03 2007 @ 07:22 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Nikon unveiled the light-weight 8.1 megapixel S51c digital camera. This product features 3x optical zoom, ISO 1600, 13MB internal memory, SD memory card support, and a 3" LCD display.

The camera also features WiFi connectivity but it looks like you can only upload photos to Nikon's Picturetown.
The COOLPIX S51c features a built-in IEEE 802.11b/g compliant wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) communication unit allowing users to wirelessly connect to the Internet via public wireless LAN access points* or a home wireless LAN, and transfer pictures to my Picturetown, from where they can be shown and shared. The following function services are available.

  • Picture Bank
    This function provides an online storage service that allows users to transfer the pictures in their digital camera to my Picturetown for storage. This service enables transfer and storage through a wireless LAN without using a computer. Furthermore, in a home wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) environment, the pictures inside the camera can be sent wirelessly just by connecting the camera to an AC power outlet, considerably reducing inconveniences such as having to start up one's computer or removing and inserting SD memory cards.

  • Picture Mail
    Picture Mail lets users upload pictures they have taken to my Picturetown and send emails to registered addresses to notify recipients that new pictures have been uploaded. The URL of the uploaded picture saving destination is attached to each Picture Mail message, making it easy to immediately show pictures to family members located far away or share them with friends. Emails can also be sent from the COOLPIX S51c to mobile phone addresses by utilizing the Picture Mail button that allows picture transfer through one-touch operation. A transmission scheduling function that allows the selection of the pictures to be sent and the recipients has also been added.
