Nikon D5100 – 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-formatCMOS 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 25600 to enable faster shutter speeds for finely detailed images with minimal noise, when shooting fast-moving subjects or capturing images in low light. This complete illustrated guide to the Nikon D5100 will fully equip its readers to master this system’s exciting features and potential. It also includes a quick reference guide card which is perfect for taking into the field.
