Good stuff! I look forward to your review zackariah! It turns out a friend of mine who is into cameras has a Nikon 5100 also. I plan to ask him what he thinks. So far I'm about sold on the Nikon.
Nubster, your picture is awesome! I knew about the long exposure for night shots but wasn't sure what else might be recommended. My husband actually took some awesome shots of me hula hooping with my LED gloves/hoop once using his cell and elongating exposure. I can't wait to try this with a real camera. I will look into the remote. Now if only I could program my phone to be the remote!
