Nikon d5100 is an older model than canon t4i. i have one d5100 and i´m very happy with it, the quality of images is excellent i have taken many photos in low-light conditions and its performance is amazing.Fully recommend this camera for the price.

Well could be just a defective one you have. Sometimes its good to make sure its not a lemon and is the model lineup. in anycase, after reading the specs, I am happy I have the 5100 :)

I currently have BOTH of these cameras and in my opinion the Canon is a MUCH better camera. The image quality is much better on the Canon. My Nikon D5100 has also had problems with the shutter release and is currently in for repairs. I'll take the Canon T4I any day!
