Summary: We bought this camera after seeing all the good reviews and were very happy when we received it. We were very pleased to get a camera bag, tripod, cleaning solution, 32 GB card, etc. with the camera which hadn't been advertised when we bought it!
Summary: This is my second DSLR and by far my favorite. The functions all easy to reach within the menu system and the camera is perfect for beginners or experienced Photographers. The articulating screen is a welcome addition when shooting from difficult angles.
Summary: This is my first DSLR camera. I debated between Nikon D5100 and Canon T3i for a long time, and settled on Nikon because of the way it fits in my hand. It's been a great camera that allows me to do everything I want to try out as a beginner, and I imagine I'll be happy using this for a few years.
Summary: I own a Nikon D300 and I love that camera. It's a work horse, but it's heavy. I was looking for a camera that I could use as more of an every day type of camera. You know, something to grab to take a few shots without a lot of fuss, weight and fooling with settings.
Summary: I bought this last year and it was the best purchase I've ever made. It was my first jump to the DSLR world and I'm not looking back. I've taken tens of thousands of photos and taken beautiful HD movies, with film like quality! I don't need an extra HD camcorder.
Summary: Upgraded from Nikon D3100 and I'm satisfied with extra I paid for Nikon D5100. Flip LCD screen is really useful in hard-to-access angles and self portraits. ISO performance compared to D3100 is better and it has more shooting options in video mode.
