It’s a new D-Series edition DSLR by Nikon, and this time it’s called the D5100. Set to be released in “mid-April” for $799.95 or $899.95 with a kit lens (seen above) the D5100 contains the following awesome specs, which remain to be seen if they actually deliver, as is the case with all new DSLRs:
16.2 megapixel APS-C sensor
3″ 640×480 (920k dot) swiveling LCD
ISO 100-6400 (expandable to 25600)
HD video recording: 1080/720@24/30p
In-camera effects on movies (nice!)
Since I’m still waiting on Nikon for a certain D3100 to play around with, I may just have to adjust my sights on the newer, more awesomesauce (on paper) D5100. It’s solid competition for the Canon Rebel T3i, no doubt. Press release after the flying jump.
