  1. I use this camera all the time. It is used for my videos too! (As well as the Gopro hero 4 black) I would definitely recommend this but for anyone who wants a midrange Dslr capable of great things. 

  2. I always loved Canon and have a small canon flogging like camera and was aiming to buy the 700d but could not find any in my price ranger (pre owned from ebay) so I decided on buying this camera. I haven't seen many bad reviews on it so I'm very excited to get it. Is it good with video quality with the 18-55 mm lens as its the only lens I can afford.

  3. Mr. Geek,
    I have this camera,
    But I see that, when am doing my VIDEOS, it does NOT have AUTO-FOCUS!!
    Is it TRUE? Or is it ME who am NOT knowing HOW to SET the camera properly for VIDEO??  🙁
    It's driving me crazy, because I do NEED the camera to focus CLOSE objects & words, for example,
    Since I do deal with cosmetics, and then the camera does NOT show it CLEARLY,
    Even if I try to come with the object closer!!
    And ANOTHER bad thing: WHY does that camera ONLY records 20 minutes??!
    Am getting so frustrated with this camera!!

    Please, Expert Geek,
    You are GREAT!!
    Help me!! :(((((

  4. Like the sensor so much ! I save together to a new 7100. A good lens for Nikon is the 85 mm F 1,8 and 1,4, I also like the low mm like 18 and 28 mm to this sensor.

    Sony start to do transparent mirror and monitor. I stay at Nikon else a Sony

  5. wszystko  byloby   fajnie  gdyby    było  tłumaczone   w jęz  polskim   a tak  to  nic nie rozumiemy   co  ten  tłumaczy   jedynir  po  ruchach   i pokazie  coś niecoś   rozumiemy

  6. Very nice review, and while you switched back & forth from Canon to Nikon, and finally settled on Nikon. My question is aimed at "Image Stabilization" and what type this camera has, as opposed to Canon's system of "IS" ?

  7. Buy the kit, it costs nothing extra really and you will have a lens right out of the box. Later you can invest in better lenses, but its important you will start taking photos and experiment immediately.

  8. If you want to combine filming and photography i suggest canon. Nikon is top notch for hotography though and thats my thing to be honest. Im not that into filming

  9. This camera would be a good choice for you..
    D5100 offers a lot of great features for an entry-level DSLR.
    Just like what they're saying, Nikon's good for photography, but for videos, i guess they're a bit on the down side

  10. If you could afford to buy a better lens with wider focal length, that would be fantastic, but having the stock lens for the meantime would be nice too.. Buying the one with lens would be cheaper than buying a body only.. 🙂

  11. For your first DSLR you may not notice the difference between a kit lens and a high quality one bought separately. Therefore, consider buying the camera with the lens, as the price is much better. Also, you may find kits with a 18-105 zoom or even 2 lenses for a good price. When I say a good price I mean around $100 above the 18-55 kit price.

  12. Nice informative review. I will be buying my first DSLR really soon. Do u suggest I buy body only and lens separately or standard offering of 18-55 mm VR lens is also Ok? Do suggest. Thanks.

  13. Hi,
    Can you please tell me about the auto lock on this camera more in depth please. I'd really like to know ASAP because we are going on holidays in a couple of weeks so I need to make up my mind on which camera to get, the D3100 or the D5100.

  14. I wish to figure out how to have more sex. My buddy has started seeing a 10 because 2 months back he signed up to a site named Master Attraction (Google it if you desire to know more.) I'm so jealous because I want to just fall in love as well. I'm gonna look into this Jake Ayres man's material. Crazy point is, he used to have NO results with females. How could you change that quickly? His lady's a fucking model!

  15. I want this now. You should get into marketing. Thanks, no need to shop for anything else now, you got Nikon a customer, ahahah. Well. I'm sure if you're so pleased with it I'll be too! 🙂 Thanks again!

  16. I found that truly educational. I stumbled upon this coz my friend grew to be a lady-magnet – and he's fat He started attracting chicks over night. I was amazed. He pretended he failed to realize. Then he told me while he was wasted. Turns out he uses the Jake Ayres Master Attraction Formula. Google it and you will get it… He's on a date now with a beautiful girl… Lucky fucker!

  17. Hey Davon Thank you for the review! Photography is such an exciting thing to get into. When I started I had trouble figuring out where to start at what camera to buy as a beginner. My friend told me about whatcameraisbest.blogspot.com That website linked me to reviews which really helped me figure out what camera to buy. Check it out, I hope it helps you like it helped me. Thanks again.
