Nikon D5100 Pre-Orders Open

The latest Nikon DSLR should be hitting the market in the next few weeks (or sooner). I'm not sure how many of you are Nikon fanatics, but here's a video from YouTube member gconphotolab showing that the new D5100 will still not have Full Manual Exposure Settings. [Thanks Garnet]

Not sure what to say about this, everyone else seems to be on board with the idea of Full Manual controls in a DSLR including Sony, Panasonic, and others. Interested parties for Nikon's latest D5100 can begin pre-orders below.

      Yeah, I own a D7000 and the writer doesn't have the faintest idea what he's talking about. To make matters worse, he keeps jumping from one model to another, not understanding the differences. No, the display doesn't "give up" simulating exposure in M, that's absurd. You don't have to press and hold the AEL button; even before the firmware you could adjust aperature while shooting video; shutter speed isn't disabled-- except in Auto mode, etc, etc, etc. Clearly, he's a Canon shooter who spent 5 minutes with a Nikon and walked away with his impressions. I used to shoot Canon's and I think they're great-- but there's a learning curve when you switch manufacturers, and there's a learning curve when you switch models.
