Capture amazing stills on a DX-format 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, delivering life-like images with fantastic vivid colours, reduced noise and smooth tonal gradations. The Nikon D5100 D-SLR Camera gives you a new creative perspective thanks to its improved, special effects mode and full (1080p) HD movie. Featured on the Nikon D5100 camera is the improved 7.5 cm (3-in.), 921k-dot vari-angle screen vari-angle LCD screen, opening horizontally for greater manoeuvrability, even when using a tripod. The camera's EXPEED 2 image processing engine, optimizes the camera's technologies for superior performance and maximum image quality and the high ISO (100-6400) light sensitivity, is manually extendable up to 25600 using the Hi2 setting. This enables faster shutter speeds for finely detailed images with minimal noise when shooting fast-moving subjects or taking pictures in low light. The Nikon D5100 Digital SLR Camera also features an Auto ISO setting.

Moving imags are not a problem for the Nikon D5100 Digital SLR Camera, as it has Nikon's famous D-Movie, giving full HD (1080p) movie clips. A dedicated movie-record button right next to the shutter-release makes it easy to keep the camera steady when switching between recording stills and movies. AF-F mode keeps everything in focus, and the camera's vari-angle monitor and Special Effects mode enable unique shots. The camera supports use of an external microphone and offers 30p, 25p and 24p frame rates. The Live View with Scene Auto Selector makes it easy to compose images using the vari-angle LCD monitor and the Scene Auto Selector will select the best mode for the scene and subject you want to capture. The Nikon D5100 Digital SLR Camera boasts easily selectable AF modes, including Face Priority AF that detects and tracks faces within the frame. Razor-sharp 11-point AutoFocus system offers fast and precise autofocus coverage across the frame and four AF-area modes, including 3D-tracking AF, deliver sharp results, whether your subject is off-centre, moving fast or completely unpredictable.

4 fps continuous shooting on the Nikon D5100 Digital SLR Camera enables the capture of fast-moving action at four frames per second and the special Effects mode sets free your creativity shooting distinctive still images and movies using special effects. Offers a range of effects, including Color Sketch, Miniature effect, Night Vision and Selective Color that lets you emphasize up to three colors of your choice and turns the rest of the image to monochrome.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging, delivers exquisitely detailed shots of high-contrast scenes. Takes two shots within a single shutter release to create an image with an extremely wide dynamic range, low noise and rich color gradation. and if that isn't enough, use the Nikon D5100 Digital SLR Camera's extensive in-camera Retouch Menuwhich allows photos and movies to be edited and enhanced in the camera. It offers a range of effects and filters including Perspective Control, Soft Focus and Color Outline, which transforms your photo into a line drawing.

The Dual Integrated dust reduction system, means that Nikon's Image Sensor Cleaning and Airflow Control systems keep dust away from the camera’s image sensor for clear, spot-free images. HDTV compatibility within the camera features a built-in HDMI connector with HDMI-CEC support so you can view your photos and movies on any HDTV and control playback features using your TV’s remote control and the Infrared front and back receiver helps prevent image blur when shooting close-ups and self-portraits.The Nikon D5100 D-SLR camera gives the enthusiast photographer all the technologies the professionals have.
