Effects Mode More fun and artistic pictures and movies The D5100 incorporates an amazing array of special effects for use when taking still pictures or recording D-Movie Full HD movies. Selective Color isolates any color within the scene, capture details in places too dark for your own eyes using Night Vision, create bright, glowing images filled with atmosphere with High Key, emphasize the mood of a scene using Low Key, Miniature Effect makes a scene look like a miniature scale model and Color Sketch creates color outlines of the subject that are played back as a series of stills in a slide show.


Tell better stories Full HD 1080p D-Movie with Sound The D5100 delivers exceptionally high-quality movie performance due to its full HD capability while the latest in full-time autofocus takes the guess work out of tracking your subjects while in motion. Effortless moviemaking is at your fingertip thanks to D5100’s ergonomically placed Live View and Movie start button. Your D-Movies will come to life thanks to D5100’s sound recording capability — get stereo sound with Nikon’s optional ME-1 Stereo Microphone.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Exquisite detail in highlight and shadow In scenes with extreme contrasts, such as bright, sunlit clouds and a foreground deep in shadow, it was once quite difficult to render the textures of both equally. Not any more. D5100 combines two exposures to create an image revealing an extremely wide dynamic range, but with less noise and richer color gradation than ever before.


Stunning image quality Image quality in a class of its own Incorporating the latest Nikon D-SLR technologies such as the 16.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 2 image processing engine, the D5100 delivers outstanding image quality. Its CMOS sensor offers a remarkably wide ISO range (ISO 100 to 6400) with reduced noise which enables you to shoot at faster shutter speeds and capture scenes and subjects with less blur. Handheld shooting and full HD movies come out looking great even in low light.

Speed and performance that delivers With high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 4 frames per second, you’ll never miss a moment and with D5100’s large optical viewfinder providing accurate and realistic composition, you’ll get a precise view and focus in every situation.


Capture your subjects precisely D5100’s 11-point AF system provides flexibility to compose the shot you want ensuring your subject is captured sharply wherever it’s located in the frame. Working together with the Scene Recognition System, the camera can keep your main subject in focus even if the composition changes using Nikon’s exclusive 3D-tracking.

Nikon D5100 Review I first got the D3100 and used it for a few days but soon discovered its limitations. 1080p video on the D3100 was horrible and had lots of "jelly" artifacts. The D3100 also has a lower resolutions screen and no HDR. The D5100 is a much better camera with features worth the extra $300 over the D3100. Having built-in HDR is a big plus for high contrast shots. 1080p video is just as good (if not better) than any dedicated HD camcorder. The higher resolution screen makes it much easier to evaluate shots. Being able to swivel the screen is also a major upgrade especially when you are trying to shoot at wierd angles. The in-camera special effects can be called "gimmicky" but they really are fun to use and will spice up any photos. If you are going to spend $600 on the D3100 you might as well bump that up to $900 for the D5100. You will be happy you did because in the long run you will not only have a fantastic DSLR, but a really top notch HD video camera.
