I Like It, I Like It a Lot

I am really enjoying this product. I'm sure there are oodles of features that I don't even know how to use, but it does very well with the stuff I use it for. The swivel screen in very nice, and I have found it more useful than I originally thought it mig

Benefits of buying Nikon refurbished

I'm a journalist who shoots most of his own photos, but don't need the high end equipment and take good care of my cameras and am an experienced photographer. Decided the 5100 was perfect for my needs, and the refurb was a way to save money. This consumer

Loving it

i waited a long time to upgrade from a D50 and I am happy I finally took the plunge.

By Retiring Don on Adorama - Mar 26, 2013

Kind of glitchy at first, but warmed up.

Originally I was very angry with this purchase. I tested it out and it was fast and felt good, so I brought it to a clients photo shoot. However, while using it, the LCD screen began to freeze and the body wouldn't let me take anymore photos. I couldn't e

Nice Camera

Just bought it a week ago but so far it does everything i was looking for.

By Bad Brad on Adorama - Mar 20, 2013

Great Product, Highly Recommended

I use this product for photography assignments currently, and plan to use it for travel this summer. I have found that it has great image quality in pretty much any setting, as well as a host of built in image effects that are easy to use and well done. M

I would recommend this camera.

The camera was just as described. I've just started using it- still need to read through the manual. I'm not an experienced photographer but find it very easy to use. I'm looking forward to taking more advanced photos but am very happy with the ease and q

Nikon D5100 Kit

Crutchfield has collected 29 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "Just bought recently but so far I'm very pleased with this camera. The color quality of phots taken is very good and very true to life. Lenses are very easy to change out. Love the bag that I purchased with the camera - it's large enough and secure enuogh to leave a lense attached to the body so I can quickly get ready for shots. Very easy to focus. Image quality is great for my purposes. "

Great camera, but buy new!

I LOVE this camera, but I am disappointed about my experience with Adorama. I bought a refurbished Nikon D5100 (my very first DSLR camera) and after two weeks, the shutter is already not working properly. Just called Adorama today and then they had to red

Fantastic!

I used the camera in a wedding and I could make the best pictures ever! I'm so happy and my friends too! The tilted LCD lets me take pictures from a certain height with a great framing. The colours are very real and the pictures with light and dark witho

Quick shipping. No issues with refurbished condition. Good value.

By DPG on Adorama - Aug 4, 2013

WOW! great camera

I typically shoot family and some landscapes. I upgraded from a Nikon D40 to the D5100. The camera is so much more sophisticated and, at the same time, simpler. It has exceeded my expectations. My first outing was my grandson's first birthday party. Not o

Excellent SLR

This is a great camera.

By Mitul on Adorama - Sep 1, 2013

absolutely perfect!

I'm a photographer student and take classes being that I want to major in photography in uni. For my first camera the D5100 is absolutely perfect! The refurbished is just as good, if not better, than a off-the-line camera. I will be buying all my lenses and other accessories with Adorama!

By aforaustin on Adorama - Aug 29, 2013

►► TWICE NO REGRETS ◄◄

This is my second Nikon Refurb camera from Adorama in three years and both times I have been very pleased with the product. I have attached a YouTube link with example of photos produced with the D5100. I strongly suggest viewing the video at 720p or 1080p or the quality of the photos will be degraded. NOTE: All the photos were shot with a Nikkor 55-200MM lens and not the stock 18-55MM lens.

By Zzyzx Exit on Adorama - Aug 27, 2013

Nothing better for this price!

Was worried about many stuffs when I was making a purchase. But after testing it for photographs it showed great result than I had anticipated. Everything came in perfect condition. Shipping was fast. Thought it would take a week for free shipping but got it at my door just 2 days after the purchase. Had some problems with neck straps. Sleeve was missing. Strap was too thick (or buckle was narrow) that it wouldn't fit lol but that's not a problem. Anyways, I'm totally satisfied that I made this purchase and gonna buy more stuffs later :D

By Shougy on Adorama - Aug 23, 2013

Excellent

I have had this for about 6 months now. Have not had any issues at all and it looked like brand new when i got it. It had 60 shutter activations when i received it.

By noneya on Adorama - Aug 15, 2013

Would buy it again

Exactly what I expected.

By Nellypants on Adorama - Jul 19, 2013

Better second time around

Had an issue with the refurbished lens on the first camera purchased. After talking with customer service I was able to return the camera and lens. Less than a week I had my replacement. Used the camera for an anniversary party and it took great pictures.

By AmaturePic on Adorama - Jul 10, 2013

great camera

I do a lot of landscape and animal photography. It rides in the sidecar of my motorcycle and has never skipped a beat. It is light enough to be easily handled and heavy enough to withstand the rigors of the back country of west Texas which is pretty rough

By Viejo on Adorama - Jul 9, 2013

Spectacular, like new product!

Wanted to upgrade from D3100 and boy have I. This camera is easy to use and powerful. Simple dial change and you have new setting to take your best pics. This camera will make you a better photographer. If you are on the fence get off and buy one!

By pgatodd on Adorama - Jul 9, 2013

Nikon great job

I love my Nikon D5100. I'm still learning the basics, and this camera was an excellent choice. I also love the size and weight of this camera, and the low light capabilities. Customer Service was also excellent. I can't wait to buy additional lends.

Great Camera for a Great Value

I was a little nervous getting a refurbished camera, but when i got this it looked brand new, and worked like it had never came out of the box before. The lens is great and everything works perfectly. I have no complaints, and I a can say that the options

By Jared on Adorama - Jul 3, 2013

Great mid-level enthusiast DSLR

I traded in my D3100 for the D5100 when I realized that I had outgrown what the D3100 could offer me. It's a good step up from the D3100. Automatic bracketing, HDR, a custom menu, smaller increments in ISO, and the higher burst shooting speed are some of

By powermatt on Adorama - Jul 2, 2013

Love this camera!

This camera works great and takes amazing pictures. Best of all it was just like buying it brand new for a great price. The camera only had about 200 shutter actuations when I got it.

Great camera at a great price

My daughter has taken my D60 so it was time for me to get a new camera. I like the D5100 because it works with all my other lenses and adds better features including the ability to shoot movies. The focus system is not the latest and greatest but it is tr

Refurbished? Couldn't tell

Have had this camera for two weeks now, and have had no issues with it at all. Can't even tell that it is refurbished. That is my only concern so far, is that in the near future an issue might show up, but nothing so far. This concern is alleviated of cou

By MH on Adorama - Jun 18, 2013

happy with my refurbished D5100

Have had and enjoyed my D40 for years. Sensor had some spots in some conditions that could not be cleaned and I wanted better high ISO. D5100 doubled my usable ISO from ify at 800 on D40 to still OK at 3200 on my D5100. more frames per minute is nice, bu

Amazing Camera!

Bought this for my wife for Mother's Day, she loves it! We have 2 small boys and she loves the speed of the camera when doing action shots! The shutter speed is awesome! I also bought her the 70-300mm lense to go with it when needed and she loves it! Both

Nice camera

Got the camera to take on a road trip. I am very impressed. Easy to use and images are clear and sharp. Had one issue, upon receipt, while doing initial set up LCD screen went dark. I took out the battery and let it sit for appx 24 hours. Put the battery

By John on Adorama - Jun 14, 2013

I would buy it again. Excellent pictures

I use the camera for sports and family shots. The picture quality is great and the controls are simply to use. It's a bit smaller then the average DSLR so eaiser to carry around. The movie auto focus isn't the bset. Reviews that I read were consistent wit

By 2M on Adorama - Jun 11, 2013

Great product, great price

This is my first DSLR, keeping the D5100 in auto mode or one of the scene modes will give me a great photo every time. I'm adjusting the shutter speed and/or the ISO and starting to get som good photos that way also. I've used it for family photos, indoor

I use this for family photos and other ramdom shots and it comes out great, this is my first dslr and im still getting use to it(i play alot in manual).The 18-55 is not as much range that i hoped, i had a P&S that was 5-75mm, so i will prob get a 50-300mm

Good Camera for the price

I am more a video person than I am a still picture person but have found myself doing more with photoshop and motion graphics lately and wanted a good Dslr camera to learn on. The D5100 seems like it will do the job I am looking for. I love the swivel lcd

NIKON D5100 W/ 18-55MM LENS

Perfect Mid-Range, Entry-Level Camera

This camera is absolutetly perfect! After trying out several Canons and Nikons, from entry-level DSLRs to professional-level, this camera will do great for anyone. Refurbished is just as good as new in my opinion, and a much better deal.

Great camera. I couldn't ask for more for the price!

By Joe on Adorama - Apr 8, 2013

Impressive

Very impressive camera for ease of use or to take photos with manual operation. Images are fabulous with the kit lens and the learning curve out of the box is a piece of cake. Great job, Nikon on the d5100.

Great Value - Great Camera

This is my only DSLR body. I chose the D5100 because it is very similar to the D7000, which is extremely popular and known for being a great camera. The major differences are that the D5100 has a more simple autofocus, lower frames per second in burst, an

Everything and MORE!

After months and months of research it came down to the Nikon D3200 vs D5100 and when they came to be the same price, the choice was near impossible! I finally settled on the D5100 and can not be more happy! I shoot girls volleyball and our first tourney

By Volleyball Mama on Adorama - Mar 20, 2013

Great newbie model

I am an SLR newbie. I contacted Adorama for assistance deciding between the D3100 & D5100. They recommended the D5100 because I tend to shoot a lot of pictures in a theater setting for my kids' concerts. The staff suggested that the D5100 did a better job

By CoolGuy on Adorama - Mar 12, 2013

Refurbished is fine

You may be taking a chance on a refurb, but, on the other hand, you you know it's been tested and gone through by a Nikon tech - probably a better inspection than new out of the box. Become an Adorama VIP member and extend the warranty for a year.

By DJ on Adorama - Mar 11, 2013

Nice Camera

Have been shooting with high-end P&S cameras for years, but decided to go with a DSLR. The D5100 fits the bill with a lot of options for a great price. Because it has a lot of features, there is a learning curve, but the menus are well laid-out, and there

A high-end camera at a bargain price

This is a fabulous DSLR and, at the Nikon refurbished price, an incredible deal. With the same sensor as the D7000, the D5100 delivers amazing photos in low-light. Although it lacks some of the the "hard" (i.e., knobs and buttons) controls of the D7000, m

Refurbished is a great way to buy!

DCRP Review: Nikon D5100

The Nikon D5100 is a very nice "premium" entry-level D-SLR, and offers some genuinely useful new features compared to its predecessor (the D5000). Some of the highlights are very good photo quality (with low noise until the very highest sensitivities), solid build quality, a rotating LCD that now flips to the side (instead of down), plenty of manual controls, a fun new Effects mode, and...

Nikon D5100 Review

Back in 2009, we reviewed Nikon's D5000, the company's first SLR to include an articulated LCD display, and while we loved its image quality and feature set, the bottom-mounted tilt/swivel mechanism seemed like something of a missed opportunity. The followup Nikon D5100 switches to a more versatile side-mounted mechanism useful not only for framing high or low shots, but also for...
