D5100 IN VIDEO:
There is not control for iso or shutter!!! all auto camera decides iso 6000 in dark and you cant do anything to change iso in video
this is verry bad because youe videos looks like amateur vids !!
hope nikon wake up and fix that!!!
i buy my d5100 three days ago :(
The D5100 CAN auto focus with both AF-S lenses AND AF-I lenses.
It will auto focus with an AF-S lens that is not a G lens.
It will not auto focus with a G lens that is not also AF-S, despite what a popular review reports.
Therefore, there is no NIkon fisheye that will auto focus with the D5100.
Why are the photos taken on auto much better quality than the ones taken on manual with the same settings?
How does the D5100's HDR mode work? I see it under "Menu -> Shooting Menu -> HDR" but it's always disabled no matter what settings I seem to configure on the D5100. What presets must I use to enable HDR?
I realize HDR through software is going to be better than the D5100's auto-HDR, nevertheless I just want to see how the D5100's HDR is.
AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G
AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G
Among the above two which one would be better and why?
What Camera, lens, and settings are you using. i.e. 1080p/24, etc.
