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.


Nikon D5100 Key Features:
– 16.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor
– Side-articulated 3.0″ LCD monitor (920,000 dots)
– 11 AF points (with 3D tracking)
– IS0 100-6400 range (Up to 25,600 equivalent when expanded)
– HD movies (1080p, 720p or WVGA)
– 4 fps continuous shooting
– In-camera effects filters in both stills and video modes
