Excerpt: I love this camera! I have used regular digital cameras for years and was wanting a digital SLR to expand my options in photography. I had read reviews about different cameras and set my sights on this one and I haven't regretted it since.<br />I use this camera for personal use and have shot some pretty good pictures with it. I love the 'select a color' filter, as well as the many different filters.<br />It's fairly easy to use.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Summary: I waited a very long time to get a digital camera and the Nikon D5100 was worth the wait.. there is lots to learn about what this camera can do and at times I feel a little overwelmed but it takes beautiful pictures
Excerpt: I shot about 4000 pictures so far and I couldn't be happier about the product. This is the best entry level DSLR on the market at the moment. Hands down. If you are going to be purchasing this camera, I recommend 2 things. Pick up a plastic screen protector(you can get one for under $5) because your face is going to leave smudges on the screen when you shoot. And also pick up an extra battery if you are going to be shooting for long periods of time like me.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Excerpt: The camera itself works great and I am really happy that I chose the D5100. Only problem that I'm very upset about is that the charger does not charge the battery. I have had it plugged in over night and longer and the light on the charger continues to show a constant flickering. AND does not charge the battery. This is so inconvenient for me because I am overseas for the next 4 months! The cheapest NEW charger I've found is $50.
