I bought this at a time when I knew very little to nothing about photography, and it taught me so much and took me from taking photos that were of awful novice quality to photos nearly as good as some proFotogs. This can be a bit hard to figure out at first, and it took me quite long to...

ConsLow-Light, Some lacking essential Video Controlls

This is a great camera loaded with some great features. I have to admit I used the camera mainly for video recording (Ill get into that later), but every aspect is great. My Experience With it Video I saved up my money and bought this thing as an upgrade for my current equipment. I bought it when...

ConsGrip is too small, body is made of plastic

If you're reading this, you're probably looking to buy a D5100, or you're choosing between this, the D3200 and the Canon 600D. I would just like to say that I absolutely love this camera, it has a 16 megapixel sensor, which isn't as much as what Canon have, but megapixels don't really matter that...

Consno AF motor in the body

This camera I bough as an upgrade from a compact about the time my daughter was born. I use it for taking photos both in and outdoors, a lot of portraits of the little one and some nature as well. The kit lens it came with is versatile, but slow (f/3.5 is the quickest) so do not expect it to be...

Provery good picture quality.easy to use

Consmoderate battery life.

I always wanted an DSLR camera and after some web research I finally decided on our product here the Nikon5100. I was previously the owner of a Nikon D300 so from that point of view the 5100 has photos of a higher quality and a lot sharper on a pixel level. The dynamics are excellent , again...

ConsMight be a little difficult to get to know.

I think it´s not too much to say that this is a phenomenal camera. It´s price is around 700-800 euros - definitely a good buy for that amount of money. When first handling the DSLR you are impressed bu it´s "outer qualities" - Side-articulated LCD screen, 921k dot LCD screen. But you will not be...

“My first DSLR”

published 01/05/2014

ProEasy to use, good picture quality

ConsShutter can get stuck

I bought the Nikon D5100 as I had read it would be a good starter camera for those thinking of entering into professional photography. I found the camera very easy to use, and it was a quick transition to using mostly manual settings rather than the automatic settings. It did however, develop a...

“Great DSLR camera”

published 09/06/2015

Proside-mounted LCD, good battery life

ConsHDR function doesn't microalign source images

In comparison to other brands of DSLR photo cameras, the Nikon D5100 is easy to use for beginners. It is smaller than it's predecessor, the D5000, thus easier to handle. The quality of the photographs taken with the D5100 is quite clear, depending on the settings you use. For beginners, there is...

Nikon once again manages to impress with the new Nikon D5100, a camera that shows promise through affordability and outstanding quality. A 1080p movie shooter provides an excellent opportunity for users to explore the stunning visual effects that the D5100 is sure to capture. But technology isn't...
