Hi all - got my D5100 yesterday - in the evening(3PM +we were waiting to go to the coast).

...so we are at the coast now - though I shot about 20 shots yesterday at home.

Also , I did a dead pixal test;Even exposure to minus 1.3 stops
and ... a dirty sensor test;even exposure to plus 1.3 stops.

First impression is good.That being size of it, the 270 degree strong swivel and basically-the produced image.

I got frustrated working ALL THE WAY through the auto ISO.I been useing it somewhat on other cameras.You work through it - see you dance!
o-well.

I predicted (I think way back in Nikonian threads) - one of the things all cameras in the future would have is color-select.!
LIKE IT.

I'm quite impressed with the image quality,sometimes color could be a little better - guess it's something to do with WB.

I do all my photos for shows and Nikonian/etc. at home on my PC - so no pics for like 5 days or so.

So,I'm keeping it/happy with it.

Mostly I'm useing "A",w ; SD,fine,D lighting off,NR off,and -1/3 to -2/3.(-0.3,-0.7).

So far , only about 100 shots so far.Hope the wheather holds good.

I'm feeling good about photography...

Happy day/Larry

Edit - I will say,I am quite sure - the D5100 is a noticeable improvement,esspecially the IQ,somewhat on color,side swivel-instead of bottom...

...and so it shood be!
