Optional accessories

The Nikon D5100 has available accessories such as:[6]

  • Nikon ML-L3 Wireless (Infrared) remote control or third party solutions.[7]
  • Nikon GP-1 GPS Unit for direct GPS geotagging. Third party solutions partly with 3-axis compass, data-logger, bluetooth and support for indoor use are available from Solmeta,[8] Dawn,[9] Easytag,[10] Foolography,[11] Gisteq[12] and Phottix.[13] See comparisons/reviews.[14][15][16]
  • Battery grip third party solutions are available.[17][18]
  • Nikon CF-DC2 Soft Case.
  • Third party solutions for WLAN transmitter are available.[19]
  • Various Nikon Speedlight or third party flash units[20] including devices with Nikon Creative Lighting System wireless flash commander or support for SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander.

  • Tethered shooting with Nikon Camera Control Pro 2[28], Adobe LightRoom 3 [29] or other partly free products including apps.[30][31][32]
  • Other accessories from Nikon and third parties, including protective cases and bags, eyepiece adapters and correction lenses, and underwater housings.


Independent reviews[33][34][35] and image comparisons at all ISO speeds in JPEG[36] and RAW (with different lenses)[37] are available. The competitor Canon EOS 600D / T3i was compared.[38][39][40]

DxO Labs awarded its sensor an overall score of 80%,[41] above much more expensive competitors.[42]


Nikon France used the D5100 for the production of the short film "Fragments". Nikon used the D5100 to film one of the television commercials for the camera itself, which feature actor and perennial Nikon pitchman Ashton Kutcher.
