Nikon 25476B overview

  • 1Description

Nikon's D5100 Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) has a galaxy of professional features not commonly found in a consumer digital camera. A high-resolution 16.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor and an EXPEED 2 image processing engine guarantee superb quality and high performance. The 3.0" vari-angle tilting LCD monitor allows you full freedom in composition with sparkling 921,000-dot resolution. Full 1920 x 1080p video with full-time autofocus (for tracking subjects in motion) and stereo sound (using an optional microphone) is always available with in-camera editing and creative controls to activate your inner movie director.

The Effects mode provides a dazzling array of special effects for putting your individual stamp on all of your images--still photos or video. Selective Color, for instance, isolates any color within a scene, and Night Vision captures details in places too dark for your own eyes. High Key effect will create bright, glowing images filled with atmosphere and mystery, or you can emphasize the mood of a scene using Low Key, or try out Miniature Effect--which produces a scene that looks like a miniature scale model.

With sensitivity ranging from 100 to 6400 ISO, you'll be able to make photos and videos that are amazingly rich, even in low light. In-camera HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode will tame high contrast situations by automatically capturing multiple exposures of the scene and combining them for vastly improved contrast and low noise. A blazing fast 11-point autofocus system and split-second shutter response mean that you won't miss photo opportunities waiting for your camera to catch up. The built-in speedlight has i-TTL for accurate, well-balanced flash every time.

With the Scene Recognition system, 420-pixel RGB 3D Color Matrix Metering II, 16 automatic exposure scene modes, and Active D-Lighting, your control over your photos and movies will be more precise and simple to carry out than ever. And you don't need to worry about dust ruining an image--the automatic image sensor cleaning function has it under control.

Vari-Angle LCD Monitor
The new, large 3.0" (7.5-cm) vari-angle LCD monitor opens horizontally up to 180˚ and flips up and down from +180˚ to -90˚. Now you're ready to view, shoot and record your subjects from unique perspectives. Try a high angle for overhead shots, waist level for candid Live View and movie shooting, or a low vantage point for a look from ground level. You can also place the D5100 on a tripod or other stable surface and still see yourself while composing self-portraits. Thanks to high-resolution (approx. 921k-dot) and a wide viewing angle, the vari-angle LCD monitor lets you check your composition comfortably while using Live View or full HD movie.
Image Quality in a Class of Its Own
Incorporating the latest Nikon D-SLR technologies such as the 16.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 2 image processing engine, the D5100 delivers outstanding image quality.
Create Incredible Movies--Full HD (1,920 x 1,080/30p) Movies
The D5100 delivers exceptional D-Movie performance with its full HD capability, full-time-servo AF (AF-F) and precise exposure control. In-camera movie editing and sound recording capability (stereo with optional microphone) are also provided. Together with D-SLR advantages like beautiful background blur, high ISO sensitivity performance and extensive NIKKOR lens compatibility, movie-making potential reaches impressive new levels.
Instant, In-Camera Post-Production
The D5100's numerous editing functions include Resize, NEF (RAW) processing and Filter effects, such as Skylight, Warm filter and Cross screen. Along with Quick retouch and Edit movie, there are additional features such as Distortion control and Fisheye.
11-Point AF System
The D5100's 11 focus points, including a crosstype sensor, widely cover the frame and capture the subject sharply. When using 3D-tracking (11 points) mode, the camera works together with the Scene Recognition System to keep your main subject in focus even if the composition changes.
Exquisite Detail in Both Highlights and Shadows--HDR (High Dynamic Range)
When shooting extreme contrasts such as sunlit clouds and a foreground deep in shadow, it was once quite difficult to render both textures equally. Not anymore. With the HDR setting, the D5100 takes two shots within a single shutter release: one overexposed and one underexposed. The camera then combines the two images to reveal an extremely wide dynamic range, but with less noise and richer color gradation than ever before (use of a tripod is recommended).
Clean and Clear Images, Even in Low Light
The D5100 provides all the technologies you need to achieve excellent results even when available light is scarce. Its CMOS sensor offers a remarkably wide ISO range (ISO 100 to 6400) with reduced noise. This enables you to shoot at faster shutter speeds and capture scenes and subjects with less blur. Even handheld shots and full HD movies come out looking great in low light.
Intelligent Auto Pop-Up Flash
Vital for dark or backlit subjects, the D5100's built-in pop-up flash automatically brightens your subject. Expect natural-looking results thanks to i-TTL flash control.
Selective Color
Select up to three colors to show in the image, and the rest will remain in black and white.
Autofocus for Sharper Subjects
The D5100 helps you focus by offering a choice of focus modes to match your subject matter - even when using Live View or shooting full HD movies. Simply use AF-F mode to keep the camera focusing automatically while recording. A new switch beside the mode dial activates Live View, and to start movie recording, simply press the dedicated button located next to the shutter-release button. You can do this while keeping a steady view of your subject.
Optimized Camera Settings
The D5100 has Scene Modes that match a diverse range of scenes. The five most popular modes can be found on the mode dial, while others can be selected by setting the dial to SCENE and rotating the command dial. Once you've decided, the camera automatically chooses the camera settings that will provide the best results. With Nikon's Scene Modes, you will never have to worry about complicated camera settings.
Scene Auto Selector
If you are shooting still pictures using Live View with Auto or Auto (flash off), Scene Auto Selector will automatically select the most appropriate Scene Mode, choosing from Portrait, Landscape, Close up, and Night portrait. Leave it up to the D5100 to deliver optimum results, leaving you more time to concentrate on the shot.
Miniature Effect
Make distant subjects appear like miniatures by strategically altering the focus area. Miniature effect movies play back at high speed.
High Key
Create bright, glowing images filled with atmosphere.
Color Sketch
Make your images appear like colorful drawings. Movies shot in this mode play back like a slide show made up of a series of stills.
Silhouette
Capture your subjects in silhouette against bright backgrounds.
Low Key
Create dark, striking images with prominent highlights.
Night Vision
Take monochrome (black and white) images in extremely low-light conditions.
Balancing Light and Shade Beautifully--Active D-Lighting
Useful in a variety of situations, Active D-Lighting automatically renders the highlights and shadows of high-contrast scenes so that they appear more like how they are perceived by the human eye. Leave Active D-Lighting on Auto for effortless adjustment, or select the strength level according to your shooting conditions.
Clean and Clear Pictures--Nikon Integrated Dust Removal
Less dust means clearer images. Nikon's exclusive system helps remove dust from the optical lowpass filter in front of the sensor and move it away from crucial components inside the camera.
Optical Viewfinder
Approx. 95% frame coverage - for a clear view and comfortable shooting without time lag.
Compact, Lightweight Design
The camera's form fits naturally into your hands, with intuitive controls that make extended shooting easy and comfortable.
Low Energy Consumption
Efficient EN-EL14 battery lasts for approx. 660 frames per charge.
Imaging Toolbox--ViewNX 2
This simple and intuitive software helps you get the most out of your images and full HD movies. ViewNX 2 provides importing and browsing capability while also incorporating image-editing functions such as Resize, Brightness, Crop, Straighten and NEF (RAW) image processing. Its movie editing functions help you create your own original movies quickly and easily, and Nikon's own image storing and sharing service, my Picturetown, works smoothly with ViewNX 2, allowing you to log in directly from the software for easy uploading without using a browser.
View Your Images on an HDTV--HDMI Output Interface
Enjoy pictures and movies on your television, and use the TV remote control unit to operate playback.
Quiet Shutter-Release Mode
Sometimes the sound of the shutter release may disturb your subject. Quiet shutter-release mode reduces the sound of the D5100's internal mechanisms, by slowing the mirror movement speed at the moment the image is captured, for example.
Scene Recognition System
With the 420-pixel RGB sensor and CMOS image sensor working together, the D5100 is able to recognize your subject matter and optimize the auto exposure, autofocus, auto white balance and i-TTL flash control. The face-priority AF feature originates in this technology, as well.
Picture Control
Customize the look and feel of your photos to suit your taste with Picture Control. Choose from six settings: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape. You can adjust the settings and save them for future use.
Image and Movie Editing Functions
The D5100's numerous editing functions include Resize, NEF (RAW) processing and Filter effects, such as Skylight, Warm filter and Cross screen. Along with Quick retouch and Edit movie, there are additional features such as Distortion control and Fisheye.
Smart Photo Sharing and Storage Service--My Picturetown

    Nikon 25476B reviews

    D5100 Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 292.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera I am an enthusiastic amatuer, not a pro, but I take my photography serious. This camera is quick to respond during focus so I don't miss those quick shots. I miss tha battery life of my Nikon D70, although this camera has a decent battery life. I was just spoiled by the long lasting D70 battery. I have a Tamron 18-270 on my D5100 and it's proving to be a great combo. Just came back from a vacation, shot over 1500 shots and I'm well pleased. As far as video, it has too much noise in the autofocus that ends up in the audio during video recording. I rather use my camcorder for that reason during video, however the D5100 does have great video quality.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Basic Camera, some issues Pros: - Low light capability - Easy to use - Fantastic image quality - Video at 1080p 30 Cons: - There is no way to know what focus distance the camera is at. The camera gives no indication of where focus is as a distance. When using liveview in sunlight, it becomes impossible to know where your focus is set. - Viewfinder not 100% viewing area, so it does not match the 100% view in the live view mode. - Video capabilities are not fully baked, there is little information displayed. - Manual settings are awkward, especially for video. - There is a bug where pictures taken in Live view have a missing right pixel edge.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Camera with a small bug This is a great camera,no doubt.Picture quality is fantastic,ease of use is great...But...... it has a hidden bug.Auto ISO feature works differently than previous D40,D60,D3000 and D5000. In Auto ISO one would expect the ISO to gradually go up and reach max value only when absolutely necessary. But in this case,with flash ON, for no rhyme or reason it reached max value. I took identical compositions with D5100 and D40 and ISO with Auto ISO ON was too high..This is a small quirk and exists in D3100 and D7000 as well.If have raised this issue with Nikon but no response as yet.If you can manage ISO manually , this can be the best camera you have had.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid entry-level camera As someone new to DSLRs, this camera is not too much to handle at once. It is very customizable, allowing me to take photos without messing with aperture, shutter speed, ISO, etc. and still giving me a solid exposure, but also allowing me to slowly take more control of those features as I get more comfortable. The lens kit seems fine for now, although I'll probably pick up a prime sometime soon. I have a few gripes about the placement of some secondary controls, like the live view switch replacing the drive mode switch on the D3100/D7000, but I knew about those going in and am overall very happy with the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant quality, but pesky movie mode The Nikon D5100 is quite a versatile and easy to use camera. It has its quirks such as not being able to properly set exposure in movie mode by altering shutter speed and ISO, but once you get to know the camera and become acquainted with its limitations, the creative possibilities are limitless. Even if the movie recording settings are somewhat limited by this issue, the quality of the footage/images is quite outstanding. I would definitely recommend this camera to anyone starting out with HDSLR video or stills photography as it is a camera that delivers on features and great image quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon D5100 First of all, I wouldn't have bought this camera if it wasn't initially in the hands of B&H experts. This gave me full confidence of trust. I ABSOLUTELY love this camera, it is lightweight like air, as oppose to Nikon D7000 which I initially had in mind. It has the same features, just not as fast, and for my work, I didn't need that much speed. I love sport photography, but I don't do that every day. It's for a versatile photographer that uses the camera perhaps everyday. Buying from B&H gave me full confidence to go on with my purchase, and the camera has all I needed, it's literally brand new. Love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought a Second One Purchased my first 5100 a year ago, and have used it for a variety of photos. Provides a great mix of features and quality performance for the price range. Shot over 3800 pictures in a 2 week period at the beach with exceptional results. With good glass and the proper knowhow, it produced some stunning results. Have very sharp 20x30 prints. Automatic Focus and Flash performance were the two best selling point I reserched, and my personal experience will support that. I was looking for a decent backup to support my growing hobby and got a deal on this I could not pass up. A good value in the range between the 3xxx and 7000 series.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lightweight camera that does all My typical photographic style is to just take my camera with me everywhere and all the time, and I feel naked without it. I experiment with everything from portraits and staged work to abstract and spontaneous. This camera is flexible and adaptable to all those needs. My other camera was big and bulky and I hated carrying it around. This one is SO LIGHT and i'm able to manipulate it in exactly the ways i need to. It takes great pictures and video. The only downside is that I guess it isn't weather resistant--a feature only found in heavier and more expensive cameras. But a good protection plan should cover any damages. overall, 100% positive.
