My Review Of The Nikon D5100 Specifications

This line of cameras has long been one of my favorites. The D5200 has a nice setting display on the LCD screen. I actually like the setting display better on the D100 hundred. I find it slightly quicker to make changes.

The focus points in the viewfinder are dots that turn red to tell you where the camera is focused. I became use to this and missed it on the newer D5200. The D5200 has the black focus boxes and are just as useful, it is up to personal choice what you like.

The shutter button is easier to use even knowing it is the same, I had less out of focus images with this camera. Remember this was my poor camera stability not the camera.

The Nikon d5100 specifications make this a great camera to step up from a point and shoot with. And the price will be slightly more then a good point and shoot will cost you. It can be put into auto and used as a point and shoot if need be.
