D5100 Tips and Tricks


The Nikon D5100 is Nikon’s newest camera. It offers the same technical image quality of the unbeaten Nikon D7000 in a smaller, lighter, less expensive package.The D5100 has a very similar 16.2MP CMOS sensor to the excellent one seen in the D7000 but, understandably, loses out on that camera’s high-end build and feature-set. So there’s no wireless flash control, magnesium alloy build or 39-point AF system but the underlying image quality is all but identical. The Nikon D5100 can record Full HD movies at 1920×1280 pixels / 25fps with stereo sound. A high-resolution 3-inch vari-angle LCD monitor makes it easier to compose your shots from difficult angles, while the extensive ISO range of 100-25600 should cope with virtually all lighting conditions. A 4fps burst shooting mode, 11-point autofocus system with 3D Focus Tracking, High Dynamic Range mode, Active D-Lighting and seven different special effects for stills and movies complete the Nikon D5100’s headline specs.

Talking about APS-C DSLRs, we know that the most basic to the most advanced of DSLR range from 500 to 2000 USD. This time, I’ll review the specs of the two best-seller brands and their hottest release in the APS-C DSLR market.

The Nikon D300s may have only been an HD movie feature upgrade from its D300 predecessor, but the D300s still holds the title as Nikon’s most advanced APS-C DSLR. This semi-pro camera has superiority in its AF points with a maximum of 51 points, and the D300s is equipped with dual memory card slots. On the other hand, the Canon EOS 7D is a surprise release by Canon after deemed unsuccessful with their EOS 50D. The EOS 7D has become the APS-C DSLR with the highest resolution in history, with its 18 MP resolution (50% higher than the Nikon D300s’ 12 MP) and the EOS 7D fixed the main flaw of the 50D in its few amount of focus points (from 9 points to 19 auto focus points).
