Nikon D3100 Review

photographybay.com
9 November 2010
  • Summary: In short, the Nikon D3100 is an excellent entry-level camera.  The only real detraction from this camera is the crippled video capture mode, which fails to completely serve the needs of the consumer (no reliable autofocus) or enthusiast (no manual exposure controls) as a video camera.

  • Summary: Although the Nikon D3100 may stretch the ‘entry-level’ price point (thus its biggest drawback on the score board), it equally stretches the sheer amount of specification you’re getting too.
  • Pros: Guide mode, featured specification
  • Cons: Price, no DoF preview, no focus switch

  • Summary: The new 14 Megapixel sensor records noticeably finer details than 10 Megapixel models, while noise levels are kept in check at high sensitivities – indeed as you'll see in our results pages, the D3100 performed similarly to the pricier Canon EOS 550D / T2i, at least when both were equipped with...
  • Pros: 14 Megapixel sensor with great quality., Friendly goal-oriented GUIDE mode., 1080p HD video with autofocusing., Decent metering and 11-point AF system.
  • Cons: Relatively expensive for an entry-level DSLR., Continuous AF in movies can be slow and noisy., No bracketing, DOF preview or AF with non AF-S lenses., Changing multiple settings requires many clicks.

  • Summary: The basics The Nikon D3100 is the latest entry-level DSLR from one of the nation's most popular camera manufacturers. With the same mini-me styling as proper pro cameras, and stunning photo quality, it's a great step up for those wanting to upgrade from compact cameras.
  • Pros: Despite sitting at the low end of Nikon's digital SLR range, the Nikon D3100 is an excellent camera. It features similar styling to much more expensive cameras, with an oversized handgrip, and it's a robust and well made solution. The kit lens is particularly impressive. It offers impressive colo...
  • Cons: The Nikon D3100 is competing in an increasingly crowded market, and it struggles to differentiate itself. It's good, yes, but there are also impressive options available from Canon, Olympus and others. The D3100 also lacks manual controls when filming videos, stopping you from adjusting certain s...
