5.0 out of 5 stars Nikon Coolpix P5100, 3 Aug. 2008
I had thought about getting a DSLR, but was concerned about dust contamination and spending an endless amount of money on Lens accessories. However, you cannot go wrong with a Compact, with a massive 12.1 MP,the P5100 is a highly specialised Compact, more the Bridge end of the market. With Shutter, Manual , Aperture and Programme options, you have ample control ,although Auto is more than adequate for most tasks. It has comprehensive menu settings (inc 15 scene modes) that gets some getting used to, but it does everything a DSLR can do. The 2.5" LCD screen is bright and provides colour rendition of the first order. Also the highest ISO is 3200, so that should get you out of some dark lighting situations. The movie operation seems to only be in Sepia or Black and White. Trying to find the colour option still. Very impressed with close up shoots, the stabilization is superb. I have subsequently found out wide angle and telescopic lens extenders are available, but will add some cost to the original outlay ,because I know they exist, I feel there is a cost factor question about this camera, so why did not they have a better zoom range to begin with ?
