User Review

westtexasflash, Walmart
20 December 2013
  • Summary: We tried this camera for a couple of days. It is a little better design than the basic dslr from Nikon. If this is the only slr you owned it would be a great camera set-up. It is still hard to beat the old film cameras. We own two or three smaller point and shoot digital cameras, and at 8x10 size photos it was hard to tell any difference in the picture quality of those P&S cameras and this dslr.

Good Camera Poor Quality

Jinhua Huang "Huang", Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the D5100 bundle with a 18-55mm and a 55-300mm lenses in June 2012 on Amazon from a company called Cameta Camera for $1020. I have taken about 3500 pictures using mostly the 18-55mm lens 80% of time during last few months. The pictures were great. However, during my last trip to the Mammoth Cave, the 18-55mm lens stopped zooming, i.e. the lens got stuck and can only move between 24 and 35mm.

  • Summary: the camera and lenses as all nikon brand is very good, the rest of accesories of the kit are not so good, for example the tripod is so light for the weight of the camera, remote control never worked and the telephoto and wide angle lens, I never got, my money was back but I had to buy the items left in other store

Camerta Camera needs to take care of their customers.

carol, Amazon
23 December 2012
  • Summary: I was so excited to receive my new camera and began to use it right away. I use the camera for some work assignments out of town. I was unable to access the pop up flash and was unable to contact Cameta Cameras until I returned from my trip. It was 32 days after I received the camera. They told me they did not have a replacement camera and I needed to contact Nikon to fix my problem.

D40x Takes Much Better Pics

Anonymous, Newegg
19 September 2011
  • Summary: I bumped up from D40x and man I wish I never did. D40x is built much better and takes MUCH better pictures. The noise on the D5100 is HORRIBLE...even on the lowest iso levels. Takes horrible pictures with built-in flash. When I use the word Horrible...it is compared to what you pay...The Auto settings with flash for low light is all washed out and misses on clarity, vividness, and sharpness that my D40x had. I'm sending it back to try the D90.
  • Pros: Swivel Screen, HD Video, Mic Port, AutoFocus when shooting Video.
  • Cons: Build Quality, Very High Noise (even with lowest iso levels), Bad in low light, Not what you think it will be when shooting video.
