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.
High Dynamic Range (HDR)
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 approximately 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 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.

This review is from: Nikon D5100 CMOS Digital SLR with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6AF-S DX VR Nikkor Zoom Lens
Pros: The camera is good, takes amazing pictures with good battery life, easy to understand functions. I love the camera when it actually works.
Cons: Camera had a "error, press shutter release button again" which prevented taking any pictures, a simple bump on the side would fix the problem temporarily for the first week or so. After a week, the error would not go away and I had to send it in to Nikon for repair/replacement. That was 3 weeks ago, the camera has now been sitting in Nikon's shop for 17 business days without any attention. Upon calling Nikon, I was told that my camera would be returned someday LAST week.
Other Thoughts: In conclusion, the camera is very nice when its working and I'm sure most will NOT have any problems at all. If you get unlucky and get a malfunctioning camera, you will have spent almost $1000 on a camera that you wont be able to use for 2-3 months. Currently i have missed photographing a vacation, a few trips to the lake, my son going to college, and my entire summer.
