Nikon D5100 first look preview from Amateur Photographer magazine

Take aways from this video –

  • Performance of the D7000 in a smaller body (this is very similar setup to the 600D, 60D and 7D on Canon)
  • 10% smaller than the D5000
  • 12,800 Extended ISO and a night vision mode that equals B&W using ISO 102,000
  • Video is recorded in H.264 w/ faster AF (I am interested to see how much this is tweaked.  The D3100 constant AF is not seamless.
  • Screen looks great, the on screen tutorials have been tweaked and look very useful not only helping you get great shots but teaching as you use the camera.

 My niece giving me that look. From early morning family adventures in Saguaro National Park, Arizona
 Friday we head to Glacier National Park for a week of photography - I am excited to teach in this beautiful park. The park is packed with towering peaks, glacial carved valleys, and loads of gorgeous streams and waterfalls. I will be using this travel to test some gear. What in the box are you most interested in? What piece of gear would you love to see reviewed at
