Camera is a jQuery slideshow that features a number of useful options, is customizable, and has a powerful API.
Camera features about 30 options, such as pagination, pause on hover, auto advance, callbacks, and so on.
The API is quite simple and allows changing the data types used in the slides; the API is also used for manipulating the transitions.
As Camera is so rich with features that it seems that it’d be bloated in terms of size. However, the minified version weighs about 38kb — which is quite alright for a thorough library like this.
