Yes I use the D5100 all the time and have taken movies with it in liveview. I always use all my cameras in "A" mode. It's a nice little camera and been very reliable.

The aperture changes when you take the photo and then stays at the new aperture until you take the next photo. It does not change when you are just looking at the monitor. That's exactly the way the other 3 cameras work that I have mentioned. And they are all much more expensive then the D5100. Why is this a problem for you?

edit: Don't think that because DPreview says that something is a problem that it is. I stopped reading their reviews ever since we found out that they have used reviewers that are biased toward Canon cameras which they are familiar with. They even admitted that they are not familiar with Nikon and if a feature is not exactly the way it is implemented on the Canon that it is a fault. I don't know if this is the same reviewer but for me DPreview has become irrelevant. As have other reviewers.

The bottom line is that the D5100 takes perfect photos at the aperture you tell it to and how they get there should not be a concern.
