Review of Nikon D5100 DSLR Camera

leave a comment »

Launched on 5 April 2011, the Nikon D5100 digital SLR camera is the latest product from Nikon which is intended as to replace its predecessor the Nikon D5000. The D5100 comes with an AF-S 18-55mm VR lens, and is equipped with a 16.2 MP DX-format CMOS sensor with 14-bit resolution. It is also features full 1080 pixels HD video mode, full time autofocus up to 30 fps, and 4 frames per second of continuous shooting. This camera can be considered as the smaller, lighter, and cheaper version of Nikon D7000. Professional photographers might opt for D7000 version due to its excellent features, but if you are just starting to learn digital photography, Nikon D5100 would make a great and cheaper alternative since both cameras share equal outstanding technical image quality. Images in BASIC JPG shot by the D5100 ranges from 600 kB to 2.3 MB which depend on the texture, contrast, and sharpness of the object.

Thanks to its 3.0 inch, ultra sharp, 921,000-dot Vari-angle LCD monitor, you can capture videos or take pictures from any angle. For more artistic results, you can choose any of the special effects available on the Effects Mode such as Selective Color (to isolate particular color of the scene you capture), Night Vision (to capture details in dark places), High Key (to create bright yet glowing images filled with atmosphere), Low Key (to emphasize the ambiance of a scene), Miniature Effect (to make the scene look like a miniature scale model), and Color Sketch (to create color outline of still objects played in a slide show).Movie making is made easy thanks to the ergonomically placed Live View and Movie start button. The Nikon D5100 also features a built-in microphone. However, for better sound quality, you will need to purchase an additional Nikon ME-1 Stereo Microphone. When you come across a scene with extreme contrast such as bright clouds against deeply shadowed woods, you will find no more problems in capturing the image. With the latest High Dynamic Range technology, you can combine two extreme exposures in rich color gradation with less noise. Thanks to its EXPEED 2 image processing engine and 16.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor, the D5100 is able to deliver excellent image quality. With its broad 100 to 6400 ISO range, you can capture videos and take pictures at faster shutter speeds with less blur and noise. If you want more expanded view from your Nikon D5100, you can purchase NIKKOR interchangeable lenses which are sold separately.
