D5000 to D5100 - Video only
May 24, 2011
OK so I bought a D5000 for my 14 year old daughter a year ago and she's wearing me out now to get her a Canon D60 because it has a side swivel screen. She and a few friends make a lot of music type videos and it really would be better for her since she's not behind the camera for a lot of the shooting. Of course the cam is tripod mounted so the D5000 bottom swivel can't be used.
No complaints about still IQ and really none about the video IQ on the D5000, but any comments from those that have upgraded from D5000 to D5100? At $800, I'd like to think I'm getting her more than just a better swivel screen.
Thanks in advance for any info.
