A camera with one flaw (the viewfinder). It is underexposing by default so less highlights get blown. 200 mm, f/5.6, 1/400 s, ISO 100 The battery life is not as my main camera (D90) but it is OK. It's a good camera to have especially at the clearing prices.

The Nikon D5100 produced images of outstanding quality, both JPEGs and RAW files. It produces noise-free JPEG images at ISO 100-1600, with ISO 3200 also looks pretty good. ISO 6400 only shows a little noise. The Full HD video quality is also quite good, though the results can be tarnished by a finicky and noisy autofocus. It has a tendency to search too long, which is accentuated by the noise of the servo motor. Shutter speeds is up to 30 seconds and has a Bulb mode as well for exposure times ...

Size : Compact, but the grip may be a bit too small depending on how big your hands are. Images : Just great. Not really far behind it's newer brothers. Video : Meh, kinda sucks. For better video, go to other brands or to higher end models. Personally I dont mind since I don't shoot a lot of videos anyway. Menu system : Nicely organized. Plus: gotta love that "My Menu" which allows one to add items that are usually accessed, to lessen the time spent on digging up options. Button placement : ...

The D5100 is rather old news now. People are either ogling the m4/3 cameras (I know I am) or looking at Nikon's new models such as the D5200. However, I recall, when the D5100 first came out, and I was the owner of a D40, I badly wanted the high ISO performance and the video. Well, enough time has passed that the D5100 is now at a sweet price point (especially the refurbished ones) that I did get myself one. There are tons of comprehensive D5100 reviews out there, this will be a short ...

I bought this camera a few months ago as my first DSLR (I have used film SLRs in the past). All in all it is a fantastic camera and I love to use it, but there are some annoying things about it , wich would make me choose a second hand D7000 over the D5100 the next time. First of all the flip-screen is only interesting for a month. After a month I used it less then 1% of the time. The 4 way controller on the back can be pushed by accident moving the focus point. And I still can't get used to ...

This camera is a complete package for those who is looking for a very good camera now and wants to upgrade with additional lenses in future. Cannot say 649$ is cheap but its definitely worth every cent. Pros: Proper keys in place makes it easy to handle. When compared to canon 550d this is really fast even with flash and i never saw it showing "Busy" because of flash getting heated up. Auto-focus is just awesome than any other cameras in this range. 11 dots. Fast enough. Cons: Max shutter ...

Switching over to a DSLR from Point and shoot can be a bit difficult, lets face it; you have to learn to crawl before you stand up and walk. This is my First DSLR Camera, Before this Camera I was Using some Sony and Olympus Point and Shoot camera's for any kind of family event or gatherings and even before that I used a Minolta SLR XG-9 Camera, which My dad gave as a gift to me.. So before switching over to a Canon EOS 550D (Rebel T2i / Kiss X4) or Nikon D5100, I had the chance to use a Canon ...

As a replacement, this camera shines. As for the price, you can't beat it. Having the same sensor as the D7000, image quality is excellent everywhere from bright light to low light without flash. You get very clear and perfectly colored images, and the effects are also fun to play with. Full HD is very good for a camera that costs $700. Recommended for any beginner starting out on Nikon. The lens you get with it (18-55mm DX) is a great value and manages some good macro. All in all, a perfect ...
