I shot some video with my D5100 last weekend and found two factors that I wasn't aware of before. These aren't problems, but they are important I think.

First, you can't shoot video through the viewfinder, so you're dependent on the LCD screen. I find it hard to see the LCD screen in sunny daylight, so carefully crafting composition might be difficult.

Second, you'll want to buy an additional battery because videography depletes the battery at a faster rate than photography. The battery drain rate with video is not alarming, but it should be taken into account as you pack your gear for the day.

But, make no mistake -- the video quality is excellent and I was well pleased with the results. I'm glad to have this capability!
