Introduction

The Nikon D5100 is one formidable camera. With full-time autofocus during live view and video recording, the same 16.2-megapixel image sensor as the Sony A55V, Nikon D7000, and Pentax K-5, and a host of new, creative image effects, this is a camera that, quite simply, blows past most of the sub-$1000 competition.
