    To enable the histogram and other display options such as EXIF:

    Click the Menu button
    Select the Playback menu (play icon)
    Select ‘Playback display options’
    Choose the playback display options you’d like to see while reviewing images (Highlights, RGB histogram, Shooting data (EXIF), Overview).
    When reviewing an image, press the down arrow on the directional pad to cycle through displays in the order of default view -> Highlights -> Histogram -> Shooting Data -> Overview.

    Hi, I tried to get in camera histogram but nothing happens I’ve done what you said in video but is there some thing else I need to do first for this to work, Thanks

    I was going over the camera in real time as I watched this (I’m new to DSLR photography) and just wanted to point out that when I want to change the exposure compensation I have to hold down the exposure compensation button while turning the command dial. If I just press it and then turn the dial nothing happens. I can also change the exposure by highlighting the exposure compensation button in the screen menu and then use the multi-selector to raise or lower it. Thanks for your help!

  17. henry sapungan says:

    I don’t think so. Cause I started with analog cam and I suggest hardly learned DSLR photography with D5100. This camera has a long way to go and won’t be last for only just a a year.

    D5100 is my bread & butter, for real.
