Today (05-04-2011), Nikon launched the new D5100, which replaces the D5000.Among its most interesting specs are the "swing-out" 3 in. 921 K-dot monitor, 16,2 Mp. CMOS sensor, standard ISO from 100 - 6.400 (extendible to 25.600) and 1080p full-HD movie mode with continuous AF.
Nikon recently released the Nikon View NX 2.1.1 update, which – apart of a series of bug fixes – adds some new features plus support for its new Coolpix cameras.
