Explore a new dimension of photography with the Nikon D5100, a high end DLSR camera that comes with loads of features. It features a 16.2MP CMOS sensor that captures even the tiniest details in any scene. Additionally, the EXPEED 2 image processor quickens up the process of images being captured and processed, enabling you to capture Full HD images at high speeds. The innovative Vari Angle LCD monitor swivels away from the camera body, allowing you to easily capture photos from awkward angles such as ground level, waist level, or over the head. The 921,000 dot LCD monitor also enables you to compose your shots accurately, and view all the recorded photos and videos with good detail. The D5100 provides you with a multitude of special effects to choose from. These effects can go a long way in making your photos look more fun and interesting. The 11 point AF system of this camera continuously tracks your subject if it is moving within the frame and ensures that it never loses focus, allowing for razor sharp photos.
The D5100 allows you to get on your creative side by providing you with a plethora of features that help deliver superior performance with great ease. It features a 16.2MP sensor, swiveling Vari Angle LCD monitor, Full HD video recording capabilities, an innovative EFFECTS Mode, and new HDR setting.
Vari Angle LCD Monitor
This unique swiveling LCD monitor proves to be advantageous when tackling tricky shooting scenarios that require you to shoot from awkward angles. The 3.0 Inch, ultra sharp, 921,000 dot LCD monitor enables you to precisely frame your shots, as well review all you captured photos and videos. The swiveling design makes it possible to take ground level, waist level, and overhead shots with great ease.
Fun and Interesting Effects
You can add numerous special effects to your stills or D Movies to make them look more interesting. Isolate any color in a scene using Selective Color; use Night Vision in places too dark for normal photography; create bright and luminescent pictures using High Key or bring out the finer nuances of scene using Low Key; make an entire scene look like a miniature scale set using the Miniature Effect; and create color outlines of any subject that can be later on viewed as a series of still images via a slide show using Color Sketch.
Full HD 1080p D Movie with Audio Recording
You can effortlessly record Full HD movies with continuous autofocus using the D5100. With the Live View and Movie start buttons within easy reach of your fingertips, you can instantly start recording movies. When you want to complement your HD movies with stereo audio recording, you can pair the D5100 with Nikon's optional ME 1 Stereo Microphone.
HDR (High Dynamic Range)
You may encounter some scenes with extreme differences in the contrast levels in different parts of the scene. In such case, it becomes necessary to preserve the detail in both contrasting areas. HDR (High Dynamic Range) helps you with this by capturing two different exposures in a single image. The resulting image captures even the finer details of the scene with less noise and better color gradation.
Stunning Image Quality
The D5100 employs some of Nikon's latest technologies such as the 16.2MP DX format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 2 image processing engine to deliver dazzling results. With an ISO range of 100 to 6400, this camera enables you to shoot handheld photos in low light areas at high shutter speeds, and that too without using a flash.
High Speed Shooting
When capturing fast action sequences, you can set the camera to operate in the burst fire mode. With a frame rate of 4fps, this camera ensures that you will never miss any decisive moment. In addition, the large optical viewfinder of the D5100 allows you to accurately frame and compose your shots for achieving precise focus and leveling.
Sharp and Precise AF System
Thanks to the 11 point AF system of the D5100, you can rest assured that your subject will be captured sharply and accurately even if it is located in the corner of the frame. This AF mode works in conjunction with the Scene Recognition System and Nikon's exclusive 3D tracking to ensure that your subject stays in focus even if the scene composition changes.
Great Picture Clarity Even in Low Light Conditions
Thanks to 3200 of maximum ISO (expandable to an equivalent of ISO 12,800), you can now shoot at fast shutter speeds for reducing the blurring caused by camera shakes in low light conditions. When shooting in twilight or indoor settings, you can achieve clear images without using a flash or a tripod.
Compatibility with NIKKOR Lenses
You can use a number of lenses such as wide angle, macro, prime, or micro from Nikon's popular NIKKOR lineup. These interchangeable lenses offer you with more variety for capturing stills and D Movies.
