As near as I can tell the only function of the Info button on top of the D5100 is to turn the LCD on and off. The LCD, of course, can be turned on using the “I” button and also turned on whenever the shutter button is half pressed. It then is turned off with a full press of the shutter button or after the time interval set in the menu. Is this the only function of the Info button or am I missing something? It wouldn’t be the first time as I tend to overlook things quite often.
