The Nikon D5100 is my first DLSR camera that I've owned. I have previously used a Canon for a short photography project I enrolled into several years ago which led me to the purchase of this one. For the purpose of the review, I will not be posting any specs, these can easily be found on the official Nikon website; instead I will write about my experience purchasing, and using the camera. ~~~CAMERA HUNTING~~~ I have always been a Nikon person though I have nothing against Canon. I just prefer Nikon and the results of Nikon cameras appeal to me. My photography mentor from the project I did suggested the D5000 or the D40. So inevitably, I started my search ...

I bought this camera in the summer of 2011 and have been using it for the past 8 months I purchased it with the 18-55mm kit lens which is only good for shooting general things on a daily basis if you want a better more creative look on things go for the 55-300mm zoom lens if you like getting close to wildlife and distant objects go for this lens if you are only into a street type photographer go for the 35mm 1.8 prime lens which works well in low light situations. Now onto the camera i start by saying i was blown away with what Nikon have done to give the camera a very high standard of overall picture quality compared to recent camera models e.g canon 600d with an ...

I've used the D90 for a few years and decided to treat myself to a new camera. I like to test a camera for at least a week, so I can get used to the feel of it and learn all the features. One thing I noticed straight away about this camera is that it's quite hard to grip, it's not a huge camera and I'v got small hands but it's difficult to hold onto for a long period of time. It has a simple menu set-up in my opinion and it has a great screen with a very good resolution but on a sunny day it's a little harder to see the screen. It takes about 2 seconds to focus which isn't too bad. It also takes videos but it doesn't always capture the sounds, so an ... Read the complete review

I love this camera so much. It has small body but its features are as many as any other bigger professional cameras. Nikon D5100 is equipped with high definition video record and external microphone. And beside its super clear 16,2 megapixel, it also comes with HDR (High Dynamic Range) Processor that embedded and integrated with Shutter Release Button. With this embedded HDR technology, I can always turn my photos into a better quality in an ease. I like to doing some experiments with this camera, since it has four tremendous special effects. My favorite effect is the Favorite Special Effects Selected Color one. I can select up to three color at a ... Read the complete review

Good points: At first my impression was it i smaller than the D5000 which I had used before. More compact body and some creative new effects introduced. The new night vision allows the camera to take extremely low light photography.It has a thinner TFT with excellent resolution. Built in HDR mode is an excellent feature as well. Easy to access live viewing mode using the auto returning lever. Auto rotate displays when held vertically.The lithium battery impressed me, almost 500 shots I took in first go while using the live view mode in quite a lot of time. Bad points:In the creative effect mode it does not support RAW file mode, only jpeg. Getting into the ... Read the complete review
