    Pros: 16.2 MP images, swivel monitor for great angles, DSLR capabilities
    Cons: A newer model always comes out right after you buy yours!

    Summary: I bought my Nikon D5100 about a year ago to have as a backup camera when I wasn’t shooting with my D5000. I love that this camera has 16.2 MP vs. the D5000, which only has 12.3 MP.  I shoot with my D5100 for everyday purposes, and even shoot ... read more

    Pros: Battery
    Rotating Screen
    Continuous Shutter and Buffer 
    Cons: Grainy above 1000 ISO
