nikon-d5100

The D5100 is Nikon’s newest DSLR camera. It’s black; it’s got interchangeable lenses and it costs close to a grand. Honestly, if you’re spending more than a monthly Porsche payment on a camera, what you really care about are the specs, so feel free to geek out. The D5100 is packing: 3″ super sharp, 921,000-dot vari-angle LCD monitor, an effects mode (selective color, nightvision, high key, low key, color sketch and miniature options), full HD 1080p (with full-time autofocus), HDR, 16.2MP DX-format CMOS sensor (size 23.6 x 15.6mm), EXPEED 2 processing engine, and an 11 point AF system with 3D-tracking. It works with NIKKOR lenses, SD cards, and external flashes and mics. It’s photography geekdom – along with a number of cool Photoshop effects (so you don’t have to add them later) – all rolled into one camera. In the DSLR world this isn’t a bargain – it’s a steal.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
