Just what I needed

I got the D5100 for a trip to Tanzania because I needed the following features: 1. The ability to take multiple shots rapidly, as soon as I release the shutter, to capture wildlife. I learned from trying to capture whales and bears in Alaska that point-and-shoots can't do it - they have to "think" before each shot and end up missing the action. The D5100 shoots multiple frames per second in the Sports/Action setting and got great shots of a leopard kill, hunting lions, and birds in flight. I never missed a shot because of the camera. 2. High-def video right from the camera - no separate video camera needed. Video quality is amazing. 3. Ease of use for a high-quality camera. I'm not technology savvy, but figured out the basic functions of the D5100 quickly and easily with minimal reading of the manual. I'd recommend the D5100 for all the reasons above, and the battery life was great - over 2 weeks with heavy use the battery lasted for almost 3 days at a time before it needed changing.

First DSLR since my 35mm SLR days

I received this as a Christmas present and have enjoyed learning all the features of this camera, as well as, accessorizing it for my first photo "adventure." So much to learn and relearn (since my SLR days) for it is a new adventure every time I pick up the camera to learn something new. I have been using a point and shoot Coolpix E7900 succesfully for quite a number of years and will continue to do so for those impromptu images. I just added a DX 55-300mm lens w/VR and WOW, will this be fun at the ballpark or looking to get that nature shot that will be suitable for reproducing and framing. My only criticism with the package was that the manual for the unit is woefully inadequate, so I purchased Dave Busch's book. I try to work on something new each weekend. The ability to rely on auto settings while having the flexibility to become "creative" and become a "real" photographer is exciting and encouraging to someone who is again foraging into photography as a renewed hobby. Thanks Nikon!

Recently bought this camera. I was in between D7000 and D5100. I'm a happy camper!

I did extensive research on what to buy just to make sure I get the most bang for my buck. And so far I love my camera I recently took it on a trip to North Carolina and I'm so glad I did. I bought mine with the 18-55 mm lens and I felt it was especially good and crisp on this camera. The tilt screen is really handy with doing self portraits or pictures with friends. I am still learning how to use the camera and have had it about a week. So far no complaints! Very user friendly it even shows which setting are best for what you may be trying to shoot right on the screen. With and ISO the same as the D7000 and the camera much cheaper I had more money for another lens. I'm very happy with my purchase. Here are some pictures I have taken on auto mode as I figure out manual on Nikon cameras as I'm not used to it. Though I am not a complete amateur, I have had 2 years of photo classes and have worked with manual on film cameras for over a year. I have been taking photos for 3 years.

Great Camera for Beginner/Intermediates

This is a great camera if you're serious about getting into photography. Looking back, I now wish I got a different one because I feel like DX format and a number of other options that are found on higher end models are holding me back. Perhaps, I'm a fast learner. Perhaps, I don't use the novelty modes such as selective color or night vision, video etc.. That's just me though. I've loved the camera aside from those niggles. For a non-pro, it's a great option! Camera definitely delivers. It kind of falls in that weird area that's not beginner, yet not pro. Not intermediate, yet not high end.. The image quality is great for the price. Definitely look into faster glass for the camera however. The kit lens is nothing to be sneered at if you know how to work with it (just look at this very blue "break room", wide angle "city steps" sample picture below) but there are better options such as the 35mm f1.8G for it's low light capabilities as seen in the "lighter" picture.

Nice addition to my camera bag

I purchased the D5100 are carefully considering the features and price of the D3200, D5100 and the D7000. My D200 is starting to show its age and I wanted something a little more modern. I shoot primarily metal shows in venues of varying lighting quality and so far the D5100 has excelled in handling everything I have thrown at it. Using the camera set to ISO 3200 the images I am getting are outstanding. The sample images I am enclosing in this review were all shot at ISO 3200 with NR set to High. The autofocus is fast and accurate, I have shot approximately 20 out-of-focus shots out of 1,500 and I have only had the camera three weeks. The articulated LCD allows me to compose shots overhead or add odd angles easily. The two issues I have with the camera is response time is slow compared to the D200, this I expected. The lag in switching from the information screen to Live View can be a problem if you are shooting fast action. Overall I enjoy using the D5100 and the images I have taken from the last few shows I have been to I love.

Manual capability and ability to use old nikor lenses

I have very limited use of the Nikon D5100, because I only bought the body and using old Nikon lenses which I had with Nikon-FE. However, my macro lens is in India. I took some pictures with Nikon EM regular lens. I have to estimate speed and aperture size to get right exposure. It works out well. I takes little more time to shoot the picture. I have to specify ISO speed and aperture size to get the picture. When I will have my macro lens in November, I will be able to take good close up pictures with more depth. If I have to take pictures, at present I have to shoot from 10 to 15 feets to get get reasonable depth. Unfortunately, the design of the camera is different, and does not meet 35 mm. standard, I have to see how it all works out. Anyway I liked the manual feature. The cost of film and development time is not required to see the result ot shooting. I have not used movie features of the camera. I liked the camera on the whole.

What a fun and easy camera

I've been wanting a Digital SLR for years and finally have it. I kick myself for waiting so long. I did a lot of research and and found the D5100 to meet my needs and wallet very well. I have been taking pictures with it non stop and have renewed my love for photography again. The pictures are great and the camera is easy to use right out of the box. The extra features are phenomenal and exciting to use. Just love this camera. Even though right now it is in the repair shop after only a month owning it for an Auto-Exposure error I would recommend this camera to anyone. The only upsetting thing is that I missed being able to take pictures of my Sons first day in kindergarten. Had to use the old digital for that and of course the pictures just weren't the same. The attached pictures were taken by my five year old son that is how easy this camera is to use. Of course he has had a lot of practice taking pictures already but these were great. The pictures of my wife, daughter and I he took looked like professional shots and all he had to do was point and shoot. Love it.

Easy to use for first time D-SLR camera

I just recently did a major upgrade of cameras in order to take my daughters senior pictures. We upgraded from camera phones to the D5100. Huge jump in capability and features. We bought a package deal that came with an extra lense (55mm to 300mm zoom lense). After going through the user manual and a video that was provided with the camera package we were off shooting pictures around the house to learn some basic uses of the camera. After a week we took it to some local gardens and shows and took amzing picturs of butterflies and flowers. We even went to a Chines Lantern event where we just set the camera to on of the city night scenes and we were off creating more great pictures. The software provided with the camera was very sufficient in manipulating the images and categorizing them. Looking forward to capturing some great senior pictures of our daughter and future memories.

Amazing little gem!

I was a studio photographer for over 9 years. Having always used film. I was reluctant to cross-over to digital. This is my very first DSLR, and although I had my sights on the d70's model the truth of the matter is that I was not so inclined to spend that kind of $. I must say though that I am very impressed. The image quality is remarkable! I recomend this camera to any one. Even in low light this camera is great. To those of you just staring off save your$. On the higher end camera body and use it on some good glass. Then if you choose too you can advance to the higher end camera body. There is a very common misconception that you need to spend top $ to get the best "professional" results. And that is simply not true. I am not by any means tryng to convince you on not buying the higher end camera body. If you can afford the higher end camera body that is great too! I am simply stating that you will not be dissapointed. My only reason for switching to the higher end camera body, would be the ease of having the settings displayed on the top of the camera. NIKON is a great brand and I will be a loyal NIKON user for as long as I can hold a camera.

Lovely camera

When I handled a DSLR cam for the first time, I knew that I wanted one. I generally like to take good photographs and since then, my interest in photography propelled and soon I got my very own DSLR cam after extensive amount of study and research - the Nikon D5100. And my, I simply love this camera. The cam is very intelligent on its own as proved by the quality of photos in the Auto mode. And the number of options it allows the photographer to manipulate is simply overwhelming. It allows me to record a much wider range of visual treats and life events and makes "expression through photography" a lot easier. Pros: 1) Very good quality photos 2) Not very heavy or big and hence easy to carry around 3) Very quick start-up and first-shot. Cons: 1) High-Dynamic Range has to be improved.
