Introduction
FCC/IC RF Exposure Statement
The available scientific evidence
does not show that any health problems are associated with using low
power wireless devices. There is no
proof, however, that these low
power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power wireless
devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used.
Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that
does not produce heating effects
causes no known adverse health
effects. Many studies of low-level RF
exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies have
suggested that some biological
effects might occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by
additional research. Wireless LAN
Module (GC-131) has been tested
and found to comply with FCC/IC
radiation exposure limits set forth
for an uncontrolled equipment and
meets the FCC radio frequency (RF)
Exposure Guidelines in Supplement
C to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC
radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules.
Please refer to the SAR test report
that was uploaded at FCC website.
This device should not be co-located
or operated in conjunction with any
other antenna or transmitter.

and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful

Autofocus may not perform as expected in the following situations. In some rare cases, the
subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the focus area and focus indicator glow
green:
• Subject is very dark
• Objects of sharply differing brightness are included in the scene (e.g., the sun is behind the
subject and is in deep shadow)
• No contrast between the subject and surroundings (e.g., when the subject is standing in
front of a white wall, wearing a white shirt)
• Several objects are at different distances from the camera (e.g., the subject is inside a cage)
• Subject is moving rapidly
In the situations noted above, try pressing the shutter-release button halfway to refocus several times, or focus on another subject and use focus lock. When using focus lock, be sure
that the distance between the camera and the subject with which focus was locked is the
same as that for the actual subject.

Note on Using the Flash
k
The AF-assist Illuminator
If lighting is poor, the AF-assist illuminator may light to assist the focus operation when the
shutter-release button is pressed halfway. The illuminator has a range of about 3.5 m (11 ft.
5.7 in.) at the maximum wide-angle position and about 3 m (9 ft. 10.1 in.) at the maximum
telescopic position. The AF-assist illuminator can be set to [Off] manually (c 113), although
in this case the camera may not focus when lighting is poor.
k
The Flash Indicator and Flash Lamp
The flash indicator and flash lamp show flash
status when the shutter-release button is
pressed halfway.
• On: Flash will fire when picture is taken.
• Blinks: Flash charging. Wait a few seconds
and try again.
• Off: Flash will not fire when picture is taken.
Basic Photography and Playback: Auto Mode
When using the flash at a wide-angle zoom position, reflections from dust particles in the air
may appear as bright spots in pictures. To reduce these reflections, set the flash mode to B
(Off) or zoom in on the subject.
When pictures are taken using the flash and a low battery, the monitor display will turn off
and the flash lamp will blink until the flash is fully charged.
k
Red-Eye Reduction
The COOLPIX S51c is equipped with an advanced red-eye reduction system. Pre-flashes are
fired several times at low intensity before the main flash to reduce “red-eye.” If the camera
detects “red-eye” after a picture is taken, Nikon’s own In-Camera Red-Eye Fix processes the
image as it is recorded. Therefore, there is a slight delay before the shutter-release button
operates normally to take another picture.
• Not recommended for when shutter-release timing is essential.
• Red-eye reduction may not always produce the desired results.
• In some rare cases, other portions of pictures may be affected.
Use flash modes other than auto with red-eye reduction in above cases.

• The camera may be unable to detect faces in the following situations:
- When faces are partially hidden by sunglasses or other obstructions
- When the subject is not looking directly at the camera
- When faces take up too much or too little of the frame
• The camera’s ability to detect faces depends on a variety of factors, including whether or
not the subject is facing the camera.
• If the yellow double border blinks when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the
camera was unable to focus. Release the button and try again.
• In some rare cases shooting subjects with which autofocus may not perform as expected
(c 27), the subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the double border glows
green. Should this occur, switch to L (auto) mode, refocus on another subject positioned
at the same distance from the camera as the actual portrait subject, and use focus lock
(c 27).

d White Balance
The color of light reflected from an object varies with the color of the light
source. The human brain is able to adapt to changes in the color of the light
source, with the result that white objects appear white whether seen in the
shade, direct sunlight, or under incandescent lighting. Digital cameras can
mimic this adjustment by processing images according to the color of the
light source. This is known as “white balance.” For natural coloration,
choose a white balance setting that matches the light source before shooting. Although the default setting, [Auto], can be used under most types of
lighting, you can apply the white balance setting suited to a particular light
source to achieve more accurate results.

W ISO Sensitivity
Sensitivity is a measure of how quickly the camera reacts to light. The higher
the sensitivity, the less light needed to make an exposure. Although a high
ISO rating is suited for taking pictures of subjects in action or in poor lighting,
high sensitivity is often associated with “noise” -randomly spaced, brightly
colored pixels concentrated in dark parts of the image.
[Auto] (default setting) is ISO 100 under normal conditions; when lighting is
poor and the flash is off, the camera compensates by raising sensitivity to a
maximum of ISO 800. Choose from values between ISO 100 and 1600.
At settings other than [Auto], the current setting is displayed in the monitor
(c 8). If [Auto] is selected and the sensitivity is raised above an ISO 100, the
W icon will be displayed (c 31).

information registered with the camera may be incorrect. Correct sender information and
upload pictures again.
• Once user information has been registered, information including the sender’s alias and email address cannot be edited from the camera or the Utility. Access the my Picturetown
server from a computer to edit user information.
• If you forget the password and reset all wireless settings after you have applied the password, e-mail notification requesting user registration will be sent to the sender’s e-mail
address the next time pictures are uploaded. Click the link provided in the e-mail notification to access the user registration webpage.
• Before discarding the camera or transferring it to another owner, confirm whether or not
pictures have been uploaded once. If pictures have ever been uploaded, be sure to register
user information with the server, and then reset all wireless settings (c 135).
• If this camera was given to you by a previous owner, reset all wireless settings (c 135)
before using the camera and taking advantage of wireless services.

Caring for the Camera
To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the following
precautions when using or storing the device.
j
Keep Dry
The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.
j
Do Not Drop
The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shock or vibration.
j
Handle the Lens and all Moving Parts with Care
Do not apply force to the lens, lens cover, monitor, memory card slot or battery chamber.
These parts are easily damaged. Applying force to the lens cover could result in camera malfunction or damage to the lens. Should the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid
injury caused by broken glass and to prevent the liquid crystal from the display touching the
skin or entering the eyes or mouth.
j
Do Not Point the Lens at Strong Light Sources for Extended Periods
Avoid pointing the lens at the sun or other strong light sources for extended periods when
using or storing the camera. Intense light may cause deterioration of the CCD image sensor,
producing a white blur effect in photographs.
j
Keep Away from Strong Magnetic Fields
Do not use or store this device in the vicinity of equipment that generates strong electromagnetic radiation or magnetic fields. Strong static charges or the magnetic fields produced by
equipment such as radio transmitters could interfere with the monitor, damage data stored
on the memory card, or affect the product’s internal circuitry.
j
Avoid Sudden Changes in Temperature
j
Turn the Product Off Before Removing or Disconnecting the Power
Source
Technical Notes
Sudden changes in temperature, such as when entering or leaving a heated building on a
cold day, can cause condensation to form inside the device. To prevent condensation, place
the device in a carrying case or a plastic bag before exposing it to sudden changes in temperature.
Do not remove the battery while the product is on, or while images are being recorded or
deleted. Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data or in damage to product memory or internal circuitry.

The Battery
Technical Notes
• Check the battery level when taking the camera out, and charge the battery if necessary
(c 16). Do not continue charging once the battery is fully charged, as this will result in
reduced battery performance. If possible, carry a fully-charged spare battery when taking
pictures on important occasions.
• Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0 °C (32 °F) or above 40 °C
(104 °F). During charging, the temperature should be in the vicinity of 5 to 35 °C (41 to
95 °F). Note that the battery may become hot during use; wait for the battery to cool
before charging. Failure to observe these precautions could damage the battery, impair its
performance or prevent it from charging normally.
• On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. Be sure that the battery is fully
charged before heading outside to take pictures in cold weather. Keep spare batteries in a
warm place and exchange as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of
its charge.
• Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning.
• When the battery is not in use, remove it from the camera or battery charger and replace
the terminal cover. The camera and battery charger draw minute amounts of current even
when off; if left in place, the battery could be drained to the point that it no longer functions. Turning the camera on or off while the battery is exhausted can result in reduced battery life. If the battery will not be used for an extended period, store it in a cool (15 to
25 °C / 59 to 77 °F), dry place. Recharge it at least once a year and run it flat before returning it to storage.
• Replace the battery when it no longer holds a charge. Used batteries are a valuable
resource. Please recycle used batteries in accordance with local regulations.

Caring for the Camera
Cleaning
Lens
Avoid touching glass parts with your fingers. Remove dust or lint with a
blower (typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one end
that is pumped to produce a stream of air out the other end). To remove
fingerprints or other stains that cannot be removed with a blower, wipe
the lens with a soft cloth, using a spiral motion that starts at the center of
the lens and working toward the edges. If this fails, clean the lens using a
cloth lightly dampened with commercial lens cleaner.
Monitor
Remove dust or lint with a blower. To remove fingerprints and other
stains, clean the monitor with a soft, dry cloth, being careful not to apply
pressure.
Body
Use a blower to remove dust, dirt or sand then wipe gently with a soft,
dry cloth. After using the camera at the beach or seaside, wipe off any
sand or salt with a dry cloth lightly dampened with fresh water, then dry
thoroughly. Note that foreign matter inside the camera could cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
Storage
k
Notes on the Monitor
• The monitor may contain a few pixels that are always lit or that do not light. This is a characteristic common to all TFT LCD displays, and does not indicate a malfunction. Images
recorded using the product will not be affected.
• When framing bright subjects, vertical comet-like streaks that whiten toward either end
may appear in the display. This phenomenon, known as “smear,” does not appear in the
final photograph and does not indicate a malfunction. Some smear may appear in movies.
• Images in the monitor may be difficult to see under bright lighting.
• The monitor is lit by an LED backlight. Should the monitor begin to dim or flicker, contact
your Nikon-authorized service representative.
En_01
Technical Notes
Turn the camera off when not in use. Check that the power-on lamp is off
before putting the camera away. Remove the battery if the camera will not
be used for an extended period. Do not store the camera with naptha or
camphor moth balls, or in any of the following locations:
• Next to equipment that produces strong electromagnetic fields, such as
televisions or radios
• Exposed to temperatures below –10 °C (14 °F) or above 50 °C (122 °F)
• Poorly ventilated or subject to humidities of over 60 %
To prevent mold or mildew, take the camera out of storage at least once a
month. Turn the camera on and release the shutter a few times before putting the camera away again.

Troubleshooting
Electronically Controlled Cameras
In extremely rare instances, unusual characters may appear in the monitor and the camera
may stop functioning. In most cases, this phenomenon is caused by a strong external static
charge. Turn the camera off, remove and replace the battery, and then turn the camera on
again. In the event of continued malfunction, contact your retailer or Nikon representative.
Note that disconnecting the power source as described above may result in the loss of any
data not recorded to internal memory or the memory card at the time the problem occurred.
Data already recorded will not be affected.
