Nikon D5100

The Nikon D5100 is a Digital SLR aimed at the serious enthusiast. This is a 16 megapixel model. Other features include a vari angle, 3 inch LCD screen. Being able to change the angle of the screen can be a big help to you if you find yourself in an awkward shooting position.

In addition to a full set of manual exposure controls you can take advantage of other advanced setting such as a burst mode that can reel off shots at a top speed of 4 frames per second. Focusing options include an 11 point Auto Focus system.

Nikon have added a High Dynamic Range feature to the D5100. It has always been difficult for digital cameras to show high levels of detail in shots where there is a large degree of contrast. To overcome this problem the D5100 takes two images and then combines them together to give you improved definition in the highlights and shadows.

Another area that Nikon have upgraded is the movie mode. The D5100 is capable of recording Full High Definition movies with a 1080p setting.

Typical Digital SLR features include being able to capture shots in RAW format and an ISO range between ISO 100 and 6400.

The D5100 is available in kit form with a 18 – 55mm VR lens.
