If you didn't know how small this camera is, its capabilities might lead you to think it was one of those room-filling media centers. It lets you edit a slide or video show in-camera, adding a sound track of up to 10 music files. A three-inch monitor with a 170-degree viewing angle makes watching the show more comfortable.
To give you good pictures to work with, the S50c's 38-114mm lens has Vibration Reduction, which steadies shots when if your shaky hands can't, and an AF system that automatically recognizes and focuses on faces. After the shot, you can crop in-camera, zap red-eye, and open up shadow detail with the new model's D-Lighting feature. If you feel like sharing, you can e-mail images from Wi-Fi hotspots. Wi-Fi can save your day of shooting if you're low on memory, as you can send up to two gigabytes of images to a secure Nikon server.
