Nikon keeps upping the ante with their entry level camera systems. The Nikon D5100 is a substantial upgrade over the D5000 and incorporates many of the D7000 features in a smaller body. One of the neatest elements of the new camera is Nikon’s new in-camera HDR. In this mode, the D5100 takes two exposures (one bright, one dark) while the shutter is open. Then, using in-camera processing, it combines the two into one final image.
Pricing for the D5100 looks like it will be $799.99 USD for the body. Not bad!
