Nikon D5100 DSLR Camera Review
With Canon releasing its EOS 500D DSLR camera, Nikon Corporation is proud to announce the release of its new D5100 entry-level Digital SLR camera. This newly released product is an enhanced version of the Nikon D5000 DSLR camera. There are several new significant enhancements included in this new DSLR camera including 14-MP Nikon sensor, D5000-like camera framework and camera controls but with a D3100 sensor, and EN-EL14 Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery. When Nikon D5000 was launched a few months ago, it was meant to be the successor to the Nikon D60 DSLR camera that employed the latest trends of modern DSLR cameras featuring 720p - 24 fps HD movie and live viewing.
Nikon D5000 and its enhanced version, Nikon D5100, are more favored than D60, not only because of the added HD movie capability and live-view features that they have, but also because Nikon has made significant improvements to their features and specifications, which are not found in D60, such as special imaging effect capability and enhanced sensor resolution and autofocus system. Furthermore, the official price of both Nikon D5000 and D5100, which in the market is valued at around $800, is practically affordable for entry-level DSLR camera users.
