The left-mounted hinge on the Nikon D5100's Vari-angle LCD has moved the left-side buttons most Nikon shooters are used to above and right of the display. Shutter speed and ISO sensitivity are always automatically controlled while recording movies, however lens aperture can be chosen before entering Live view mode in Aperture Priority or Manual exposure mode.

Though I'm not sure why they're split into two separate areas on the Mode dial, Scene and Effects offer a few interesting settings as well. The bottom-mounted mechanism probably also contributed, at least in part, to the D5000's increased body size relative to Nikon's entry-level SLRs. While it made shooting over your head or low to the ground much more feasible than in SLRs with a fixed screen (even those with wide viewing angles), it was unfortunately of relatively little use for self-portraits--and that's something of a common need for consumers. It's not quite as inspiring to photography as the Nikon D7000, but it's still enticing. The Nikon has an advantage in color, however. Processor. Function. HDR Imaging.

After the exposure, it seemed their faces were way too dark, so I decided to pop up the flash. There is only 5 months difference between D7000 and D5100 so we are expecting this to be a fair comparison regarding age and technology level. If set to On, the camera will automatically adjust the sensitivity if proper exposure cannot be achieved at the value chosen by the photographer. -3 to +1 EV of flash exposure compensation is available in 1/3 or 1/2 EV increments. Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor delivering 24.2 effective megapixels, providing you with pictures that match the reality. Its noise suppression is more aggressive, however, smoothing away some of the fine detail in the mosaic pattern as well as the red leaf swatch.

With Nikon F-mount lenses having been designed for still image shooting, it's likely that autofocus drive noise will be picked up on the audio track when using the Nikon D5100's internal microphone, but this is likely a worthwhile tradeoff for many consumers, given the difficulty of learning to pull focus manually. Side-mounted tilt / swivel LCD screen; same sensor and processing as the Nikon D7000; good speed and battery life; in-camera HDR and filter effects; Full HD video capture with aperture control; audio levels control and external microphone jack.

The Nikon D5100 can capture still images as .NEF-format compressed RAW files, JPEG compressed files, or as both types simultaneously. Of course, there are many other points that differentiate the two cameras, but it's great to see very similar levels of image quality on offer at a much more affordable price point, one that's easily within reach of many consumers. Details on similar images in the database are then used when determining focus, exposure, i-TTL flash exposure, and white balance, allowing the Nikon D5100 to make better decisions overall. Today's ISO 3,200 is yesterday's ISO 1,600 (well, almost), so below are the same crops at ISO 3,200.
