Nikon Shoots D5100 Commercial with a D5100

We are excited acclaimed Director of Photography Matthew Libatique shot our “Man of Action” D-SLR spot with the Nikon D5100. All elements of this DSLR campaign were shot with the Nikon D5100 demonstrating its high quality photo and HD movie capabilities. -Lisa Baxt, senior communications manager for Nikon Inc.

Kudos to Nikon for stepping up to the plate and making a commercial with its own DSLR.  Perhaps other companies should consider doing the same.

As has been the case with recent Nikon campaigns, Ashton Kutcher is front and center showing off the D5100.  Check out the commercial spot below.

Not sure why the audio is out of sync (it’s the same on Nikon’s own site). I can recommend a good audio-syncing program for DSLRs

“Amazing 1080p Quality” – so WHY is this posted at 360p max?

It would have been a decent commercial without Ashton Kutcher.

Funny… my first thought from the headline was “Oh. I hope Sony reads this.”

Funny how the shots that included the D5100 that was supposed to be shooting the video showed it was hand held. Meanwhile, the whole video was shot with the camera mounted on a tripod!

Funny, eh?
