Good: When it takes pictures, the quality is excellent
Bad: Error. Press Shutter Release button again!!!!!????
Comment: I bought this Nikon 5100 camera 2 weeks ago and bought it on holiday with me to France, It worked fine for 100+ pictures. Then for no reason I got the error "Error. Press Shutter Release Button Again" and it will not take photos anymore,
I do not expect this of a camera that cost me this much. As soon as I get back home in the UK it is going straight back to where I bought it from and I will get my money back. I would advise others that this is a absolutely USELESS Nikon 5100 CAMERA and do not buy it.
Comment: Need a lighter but high spec camera
Good: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Excellent image Quality, Fast shutter speed.
Bad: No built-in image stabilizer
Comment: Best buy in view of small dimensions and weight of the camera, a rich set of built-in automatic mode, and special effects, high-sensitivity matrix and the relatively low noise component, which gives excellent quality pictures and video.
Good: Loads of features
Comment: This is a briliant camera with some awesome features and the best part is that the price for this camera has now come down! - amzn.to/jCeK8z
Good: A 'Budget' D7000 with a folding screen : )
Bad: No inbuilt AF motor or semi-pro build quality - can't expect everything at this price.
Comment: Looks great on paper - if it performs as promised, it'll be the entry level DSLR to beat !
Comment: ". But, if you want a hinged screen, the D5100 will be a good option -- Canon's entry-level models don't offer folding displays."
Do your research. 600D.
Good: Side articulate screen, bigger megapixel, bigger lcd, etc. Simply put, a better D5000
Comment: I always love my D5000, and didn't expect the upgrade would be this good. Nikon D5100 is a great and well thought update. For sample pictures taken with my Nikon D5000, visit dslrjourney.blogspot.com
Comment: Does this mean there is an update to the D7000 with a vary-angle screen with a better resolution in the near future. That would be great.
Comment: What about compared to the new Canon 600D? That has a hinged screen..
