Compact Mighty Marvel

By

 -  Semi-Pro

Bought this for my wife. I feel the 16mp sensor is really a sweet spot for DX in terms of image quality, high ISO performance, and reasonably sized files. Camera is wonderfully compact and light, making it a joy to carry around all day. My wife loves the articulated display, I couldn't care less about it. The built in auto lens distortion control is a God-send for correcting distortion in all the zooms and wides. Only thing I really dislike is the smaller, darker viewfinder, which is the norm for a cropped sensor camera. Overall, a great little camera with awesome image quality.

Great camera for the dollar.

As an enthusiast, and not a pro , I like this camera& is the second D5100 I bought in the last 8months. It is really fast, has great color accuracy, large viewing screen, shoots from the view finder or the screen, has a lot of easy to use programs. there is a lot of new technology for the money. I have a D70,D200,D7100,but this is my favorite. It is in a cheap plastic housing & has no focus motor, but Im not photographing in Patagonia, and most of my lenses have their own focus motor. Super camera for the $.

A good camera for the price.

I am a pro photographer who uses shoots real estate, architecture, events, and portraits. I bought this used camera as a backup, it is my second D5100. The Camera itself is the second used camera I have bought from Adorama and again the camera was exactly how they described true to Adorama form. The camera is a great camera using the sensor from the D7000 the picture quality is very good and is worth it for the money. I do want to list a couple of Cons about the camera so you are aware of these missing features prior to buying it (They are minor for the features but I wish I had know prior to purchasing) Cons There is no wireless capability for the D5100 (Other than Eye-Fi or other wireless SD Card) As an intermediate camera it is not weather sealed (I used Desiccant Packs and rain guards in wet weather no problem yet) Recent Firmware upgrades disabled the use of some (all?) third party batteries. Battery grips are third party and have a wire that runs from the grip to the shutter due to lack of interface in grip. and last one - There is no fine tune adjustment for lenses that are slightly out. Only has Mono Microphone if your looking to do videos (can plug in a stereo mic though) I have used this camera to shoot low light Dancing at 6400 iso and have been able to get acceptable results after post processing.

Will produce excellent photographs.

I used this camera for macro, landscape, and just about everything. It's lightweight, well built, and can produce award winning photographs if YOU know how to use it. The old adage of it's not the camera, but the photographer is completely correct. This camera will do its part.

Use for portraits and event photograhpy which give me a nice sharp photo. It's smaller than I'm use to but get the job done. I don't like that it is not compatitable with some of my lens.

Good Starter DSLR w/ Great Features

By

 -  Hobbyist

I bought the D5100 as an upgrade from my D50 (which had served well for 7 years). I was looking for something that had up to date features, but also would deliver point & shoot when needed. The D5100 is a perfect fit. My wish list for this body includes AF for non-AF-S lenses and a grip (particularly since it is a small body).

Baby's first words were as exactly as expected. Outstanding. Works flawlessly in low light with multi focus points. Haven't had time to go through all programs yet, but WOW!
