Johannesburg, South Africa, 5 April 2011: Nikon introduces a new D-SLR to its line-up, the D5100, which is packed with features to make shooting stills or full HD movies more exciting than ever. The D5100 will give you a new creative perspective thanks to its improved vari-angle screen, special effects mode and full (1080p) HD Movie.
Romi Jacobs, Chief Brand Officer for Nikon in South Africa, says: “The D5100 is a great camera that allows you to express your artistic side through impressive images and movies. You can shoot with creative effects and unique angles, all at the level of superior image quality seen in the D7000!”
Unique viewing angles
The successor to the popular Nikon D5000, the D5100 features an improved vari-angle LCD screen. The screen now opens horizontally for greater maneuverability, even when using a tripod. This freedom of movement adds unparalleled creativity when using Live View, allowing shooting from virtually any angle. You can also view pictures and movies in more detail on the high resolution (approximately 921k-dot), 7.5 cm (3-in.) wide-viewing angle monitor.
The Live View function is a simple and intuitive way of taking pictures and with the D5100’s dedicated switch it is even more straight-forward to operate. When using Auto mode you do not even need to worry about the scene you are shooting, as Scene Auto Selector chooses the most appropriate settings to give you the best image.
