I suppose like many people, when I decided I was going to buy a new camera I researched various models online to the point of going mad. I swear it was such a relief to finally purchase the Nikon d5100, first of all I am so happy with it, but almost as important was being able to move on with my life and leave camera research behind!

The reason I sold my Nikon d5000 and upgraded was mainly because I need to use an external microphone, which the d5000 doesn't allow, as I record interviews and DSLR video is perfect for this.

I bought a SLR camera because I photograph bands, and the low-light capability of an SLR is necessary. The d5000 was good. The d5100 is even better. Really pleased with the results when combined with the 35mm f1.8.

The d5000 took very good photo's for me, but I believe that the d5100 is slightly better. I suppose it is natural for technology to provide better tools over time, combined with what i've learned about photography over the past 18 months (the d5000 was the first SLR I had owned).

As for the video element of this camera, like most SLR's video is still new but evolving at an impressive rate. Yes certain camera's will make it easier to film, but they normally come with a more hefty price tag. You'll also probably need to learn one or two workarounds with whichever SLR you choose to film with, but if you look at the work of guys like Philip Bloom or Chase Jarvis you will see that filming quality work with SLR's is possible. Obviously that have flexibility with their budgets, but if you're wondering if you can get decent footage from an SLR - yes you can.

Model Number: 18-55mm VR Lens Kit Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First up I need to say that I'm no great photographer and also that this is my first DSLR.

Therefore my review will be from a new users perspective - especially if you (like me) are thinking of making the transition from a "pro-sumer" ultra zoom to a DSLR camera.

My camera for the last 2 years has been a canon powershot SX20IS - 20x optical zoom and 12.1m pixels.

I've been using the Nikon for a month and can say for sure that it will allow me to take better quality images than the canon but that it won't replace the canon entirely - theres space for canon the nikon and my iphone for taking pictures - I just need to know what to take out with me. Through choice it would be the Nikon - but the camera plus the lense(s) and other kit makes for a lot of gear and you can't just chuck it into a rucksack.

To show what a total numpty I was a month a go it took me a while to stop looking for the zoom buttons and to do this manually on the lense - the massive advantage of this is that the zoom is so so fast - the AF is fast as well - and you can of course focus manually. I've only really used it in auto mode, sport mode (4 FPS continous shooting) and played with some of the scene modes, I've typically been taking shots of my kids while they play and the results in all conditions - sun, cloud and in doors with and without flash have been very pleasing.

It is very simple to select auto and take great photo's - but to make sure you get the most out the camera you need to explore all the options and manual settings. I've purchased the D5100 for dummies book (also available on the kindle) - the sport mode was brillant for taking shots of my kids on fairground rides today - 350 shots almost all in focus and better than any compact camera could ever do.

Model Number: 18-55mm VR Lens Kit Verified Purchase
I am very pleased with this purchase.

I spent a lot of time reading reviews, trying to work out how much I wanted to spend, what make to get, what model to go for etc.

The flappy panel display is the deal clincher for me and has already proven useful. I was thinking of getting the more expensive D7000 but because it didn't have that I decided on the D5100 and spending the saved money on an extra lens. I am very happy with this decision.

From what I have read the two cameras share the same sensor so the image quality should be the same. I am very impressed with the quality of the images taken with this camera, and the low light sensitivity is great.

Start up time, although slower than more expensive models, is incredibly quick. Flick the power switch and as quickly as you can get your finger to the shutter release button it's ready to go. The difference between 400 and 500ms isn't really perceptible :)

Battery life is pretty good, although you will probably want to buy a spare.

I had read about the delete button being perilously close to the zoom buttons and when I held one prior to purchase in a shop I was worried my thumb would press it but this isn't the case, and I have never accidentally deleted a photo.

The lack of direct access buttons for white balance, bracketing or ISO level can be overcome by assigning one of these to the fn button, but even going into the menu isn't too much trouble. The direct access buttons are one of the features of the more expensive models.

Delivery was quick and it arrived well packaged and in excellent condition.

All in all very happy. I can't think of any negative points at the moment which obviously means if there are any they are minimal and I have forgotten about them.
