Active D-Lighting preserves details
Nikon's Active D-Lighting technology preserves details in both highlights and shadowy areas of your shot, ensuring you get photos just as you see them. You can select from multiple settings or turn the feature off to best work with your lighting environment.
16 scene modes provide optimal settings
Choose from 16 scene options, including sports, close-up, night portrait, food, candlelight, and many other modes for accurately colored and exposed pictures. The D5100's Scene Auto Selector will automatically choose the ideal image setting for you if you have the autofocus on during Live View shooting.
Numerous options for effects and editing
