Nikon D5100: The Expanded Guideby Jon Sparks
Nikon's new DSLR, the upper-entry level D5100, has many features to help you shoot exceptional still images or full HD movies. This successor to the popular D5000 features a 3-inch (7.5cm), 921k-dot, side-opening vari-angle LCD screen, with a wide view angle, which allows shooting at virtually any angle, using the Live View function. A 16.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS image sensor delivers lifelike images with vivid colors, reduced noise, and smooth tonal gradations. Its high ISO (100-6400) light sensitivity is manually extendable up to 25,600 to enable faster shutter speeds for finely detailed images with minimal noise, when shooting fast-moving subjects or capturing images in low light. New to this model is a special effects mode, accessible from the mode dial, while the Picture Control system offers Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, or Landscape settings. Scene Modes include Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close-up, or Night Portrait.
