Summary: Although I mainly shoot in fully automatic (I'm learning manual in baby steps) I love this camera. It does all the work for you. I've been shocked at the detail it picks up even with the kit lens.
Excerpt: I've had my eye on the Nikon D5100 and D7000 (both refurbs) for a while but couldn't make up my mind. I had it in my head that the D5100 would be "settling" for lesser camera that I would regret soon after the purchase. Boy was I wrong! Huge range of shooting options and settings to fine tune for your personal style and needs.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Audio Quality, Good Video Quality, Great Picture Quality, Great Range Of Options, Lightweight
Summary: This is my first SLR camera and also my first Nikon. I know nothing about photography beyond what I read in tutorials and guides. Of course, reading about photography won't make anyone good at it. I shot some good pictures in the past using a Panasonic point and shoot, but I gave the camera away as it was just sitting around. Recently, I received a gift card and I thought I should buy a decent SLR, and take up this hobby again.
Summary: This kit has made me up with the stuff a photographer needs to make its hobbie (as it is a hobbie for me) easier. The memory card adapter is great 'cause it supports 4 kinds of memory cards. And as I was trying to decide which was the best between D5100 and D3200, I now see I did a really good decision.
Summary: This SLR is at top of its category. Got it in a good deal. I am not so good at taking picture but still i was able to use it with ease and get very good snap. In other words this SLR made me a professional photographer for my family.
for the money, this is probably best bang for the buck

Summary: I'm a long time (over 8 years) Nikon DSLR user, primarily using pro and semi-pro bodies. My main body now is the D3s. So, when I bought the d5100, I was ready to be disappointed. Well, I've had the camera for a couple of months now and I must say that the little camera is a keeper. The images that it can produce are about as good as one could ask for, assuming that the photographer does his part.
Summary: This is a excellent camera. A perfect DSLR for a beginner or a advanced photographer. Has too many features to name here. Plus I shopped around before making this purchase a this bundle was the best deal I came across by far.
Summary: MY SISTER BOUGHT THIS CAMERA FOR HER SON TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHY IN SCHOOL AND THE PRICE OF THE CAMERA WAS EXCELLENT PLUS THE CARRYING CASE YOU CANT BEAT THE PRICE OF THE PACKAGE SO KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK FROM GTC&ASSOCIATES.INC.HAPPY NEW YEAR AND ALL THE BEST IN 2013
Summary: I've used a Nikon D5000 for a few years and loved it but I took notice of this one when it first came out and thought I would upgrade, mostly for things like in-camera HDR and, esp., the higher resolution LCD. Thought about it for a year and a couple of weeks ago decided to go for it. (Something about impending holidays triggers the camera buying urge.) Since I had all the lenses I needed I bought the body only, saving about $100 over the kit price.
