Nikon D5100 DSLR Delivers Superb Images

For the non-professional, the Nikon D5100 D-SLR (Digital-Single Lens Reflex) camera (16.2 MP, DX-format, CMOS sensor, 4 fps continuous shooting, 1080p HD movie) is an excellent all around product especially when coupled with the Nikon 18-105 mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR ED and 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6G ED IF AF-S VR Nikkor zoom lenses. For many, this camera will provide everything needed without having to reach up to the more expensive Nikon D7000.The image captures from the D5100 using either the 105 mm or the 300 mm glass are very high quality. The D5100 has the same image sensor as the D7000, which is an extremely nice benefit. When going out for a day capturing images it is nothing to snap two to four hundred clicks, and relatively few of them ever need to be deleted while they are on the memory card in the camera or later once they have been downloaded to either a pc or laptop.

The settings and functions are easy to learn and use. The additional “Scenes” and “Effects” features have delivered as Nikon promises. The selective color function is especially nice and works exceedingly well while being only hand-held without the assistance of a tripod. The results are quite remarkable considering the unit essentially snaps two photos. That, in itself, says much about Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) capabilities. However, the best thing about selective color is how effortless it is to learn.The High Dynamic Range feature allows the user to bring together scenes with deep contrasts by combining the two exposures with rich color and texture. Also available in the D5100 is Active D-Lighting, a feature that equalizes the differences between high and low light areas in an image.With a well-placed Start button, the D5100 full HD mode delivers a very high-quality movie (up to 22 minutes of 1080p HD) utilizing full-time autofocus and good sound recording quality, which can be greatly enhanced with an optional stereo microphone (Nikon ME-1).

Even though the D5100 has Liveview there are those who will prefer use of the viewfinder, but, either way, the camera should live up to all expectations when framing an image. The 3″ 921,000-dot LCD display is a great size and the color clarity is superb. The addition of the articulating display was brilliant on Nikon’s part as it assists framing many difficult shots (overhead, waist, ground level, etc) with relative ease.For the money the D5100 cannot be beat for quality of performance.


How We Can Consistently Keep Up With Time

Consistency can be acquired through sheer habitual routine and with the help of self-discipline. It is all about the willingness to make anything that we are doing to keep up with the momentum.The rapid changes in this present world are frightening and to be sustainable in whatever we are doing, to avoid running off the track, is not for procrastinators.Today’s world is competitive and demanding unlike five decades ago where we could still waltz with time. There was nothing much then that demanded for competition and pressure related diseases were hardly heard of, to seek out the middle-age people.First of all, to keep up with time requires a lot of efforts. And the reasons behind the necessity to do so must be clearly identified otherwise it will be like catching the shadow and lose the substance!The manner in which the society is revolving, it gives little time to hold back the horses but with porcine greed to serves as the yardstick to determine success. It may be as pathetic as it sounds, but it is the plain truth when keeping up with the Joneses syndrome becomes stark.When can enough be really enough when time is the essence of opportunity to tempt for more? It may not be wise to fall for the carrot hanging in front in the expense of health so to speak. However, it is the people’s choice to decide over priorities but mostly they ended up on their own follies.The joy in what you are doing must be ascertained irrespective they are careers or hobbies. Ennui may set in owing to routine and in stealth, mediocrity emerges to rule over.It is the acquired knowledge that made people perform well but difficult to make them adapt to new changes. The reluctance to changes is the stumbling block that betrays progress. The reluctance for changes is actually the self-imposed threat that allows fear to be manipulative. When resistance becomes obvious, then consistency will take a plunge even from the years of cultivation.We have Hobson’s choice but to be adaptable to the changing time. Unlike hobbies that we can temporary put aside but to careers means to be jobless!By getting ourselves updated with the changes in technology, fashion and the way of life people live, they serve as the avenues for reconciliation between the past and present. It is the subtle influence that allows the mind to accept the differences and changes that are inevitable in order to remain relevant.Time is the important essence for many purposes. Time is needed for healing, be it emotional or physical, and the much needed for changes for adaptations.By living each day at a time and keep an open mind has the advantages to put manipulative thoughts and feelings in controlled.The power of market force and how people in general will react derived from how we look at things in parallel with our own acceptance is imperative. This is how we can consistently keep up with time without any phobic reactions to disturb the enjoyment of living life to its fullest!
