Inspiring at any angle - The D5100, with its horizontal swing-out, vari-angle LCD monitor, makes it exciting to capture the world from a unique viewpoint. Taking pictures and recording full HD movies will never be the same again.
The new, large 7.5-cm (3-in.) vari-angle LCD monitor opens horizontally up to 180˚ and flips up and down from +180˚ to -90˚. Now you’re ready to view, shoot and record your subjects from unique perspectives. Try a high angle for overhead shots, waist level for candid Live View and movie shooting, or a low vantage point for a look from ground level. You can also place the D5100 on a tripod or other stable surface and still see yourself while composing self-portraits.
