Have you been looking forward to Nikon’s newest DSLR offering? The Nikon D5100 is a great addition to the entry-level professional line up and has some amazing features to boast. In main competition with Canon's T3i/600d, the D5100 has similar a vari-angle LCD monitor that is great for taking pictures and recording movies from unique angles. This is especially useful at live events with a lot of people, and getting interesting video footage. You can really explore your creativity here with overhead shots, self-portraits and others. The 3.0 inch 921000 dot vari-angle LCD monitor allows for high-quality playback also for reviewing your work. The 16.2 Megapixel DX format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 2 image processing engine ensures that your images are stunning, every time. The CMOS sensor offers wide ISO range from ISO 100 to 6400 and has reduced noise that lets you get faster shutter speed and less blur.
The Nikon D5100 has an effects mode, which is really cool. It is the first Nikon camera that allows you to use the innovative effects in both the video and photo mode. There are lots of effects to choose from that will give you very innovative projects with a professional edge. For example, you can select a particular color and isolate it within the scene, you can use the night vision effect to capture details in places too dark for your own eyes, use a high key effect to create bright, glowing images filled with atmosphere, or emphasize the mood of a scene using Low Key the effect. My favorite is the Miniature Effect that makes a scene look like a miniature scale model.
The Nikon D5100 has a full HD capability that lets you record movies in very high quality. It also has full time auto-focus that makes the task of video recording easier as it automatically tracks the motion of the person you are recording. The Live View and the Movie start button are ergonomically placed so you don’t need to search through menus to create great HD video projects that you can easily share online with friends and family. Another stunning feature on this camera is that you no longer have to worry about extreme contrasts like a bright sunny day or foreground deep in shadow because the Nikon D5100 combines two exposures and creates image of wide dynamic range which has less noise and richer colors. Buy the Nikon D5100 and start producing professional, creative images today. This camera is body-only so that you can choose to buy whatever lens you like, instead of being retrained to the kit lens. If you'd rather get the whole kit with a nice starter 18-55mm lens, then you can find that here.
