Small but mighty I bought this camera around 3 years ago now and i love it! I have a D80 as well, but i almost prefer this for its ease of use and size! I have had the wide angle lens for a couple of years now and have just ordered the telephoto lens. Its a perfect travel companion. March 15, 2013
Excellent Camera!! This is the most well rounded pouch-size camera I've ever seen. Extreme flexibility in a small package. I use this for everyday shooting and occassionally as a compact backup on shoots. I bought mine on a whim while on a trip to Boston as I needed a little camera for seeing the city, but fell in love - and that's saying something for a film-loving, manual-everything photographer. I would highly recommend this camera to consumers and professionals alike. Beautiful, crisp, clean, balanced photos. July 12, 2010
Good things come in small packages. After looking around for another reasonable compact digital camera I was recommended this model from Nikon. Having used other small Nikon cameras with success I purchased the P5100. So far I have had no problems with it apart from trying to find information, details etc ever since. Suddenly it was superceeded by new models. I am surprised that after lots of fanfares etc it disappeared. It has taken me a long time to locate this page. This model isn't even recognised on the search screen. Makes one wonder if it was a good choice after all. July 23, 2012
