Nikon D5100

Available May 22, 2014

Another excellent intro-level camera from Nikon, the D5100 has the same 16.2 Megapixel CMOS crop sensor (DX) with 14-bit conversion as the D7000. It also has a 920,000 pixel variable-angle LCD monitor, shoots 1920 X 1080p HD video with full time autofocus and stereo sound (using an external microphone) manual exposure control at either 24 or 20 frames per second

It has ISO sensitivity of 100 to 6400, and 11 point autofocus system, and can create in-camera HDR (high dynamic range) images for those of you who aren’t over that yet. It also has the usual Nikon goodies: 3D Color Matrix Metering, Scene recognition and gobs of in-camera special effects.

This camera will only provide autofocus with lenses that have a built-in AF motor.

The D5100 is a capable entry-level camera that can be used for a variety of shooting. It’s essentially a more basic D7000 without the advanced controls and build. If you’re looking for a straightforward, easy to use Nikon DSLR, the D5100 is a very popular choice.
