  • Summary: The D3100 is Nikon's replacement for the . Aimed squarely at the entry-level DSLR camera market, it's certainly going to be a wake-up call for other manufacturers. The D3100 has 14.2MP and full HD movie mode. In general though, Nikon has made entry-level cameras that lack specifications, but are fun and easy to use. How does the D3100 measure up? Nikon's latest offering to the entry-level market represents a giant leap for the manufacturer.

Nikon D3100 Review

6 May 2011
  • Summary: The D3100 is the newest entry-level Nikon DSLR in a line that goes returning four decades to the D40 and, in probably the greatest update yet, benefits two key features: stay perspective and film documenting. Despite this, it efficiently carries on the focus on providing unintimidating ease-of-use, with the controls for the new features uncommonly well integrated into one's whole body style.

Nikon D3100 Review

What Digital 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. Usually always on the money, it’s only the slightly sluggish autofocus during live view (and, therefore, movie mode) that may frustrate.
  • Pros: Guide mode, featured specification
  • Cons: Price, no DoF preview, no focus switch

  • Summary: Thanks to the improvements in features and build quality, the Nikon D3100 has reached a level of quality that surpasses its D3000 predecessor and that of any entry-level DSLR currently available. The addition of Live View, Full HD video, increasing the resolution by four million pixels and enhancing the build quality are all factors that have pushed the D3100 to greater heights.

  • Excerpt: Though the 100-3200 ISO range of the Nikon D3100 appears conservative on paper, there's the option of expanding this to Hi1 (ISO 6400) and Hi2 (ISO 12800) if required.  Fitted with the 18-55mm image stabilised kit lens, it offers a focal length range that's equivalent to 27-82.5mm in film terms. This works out slightly wider but not quite as long as Canon's 1100D.

Nikon D3100 18-55VR Kit review

expertreviews.co.uk
22 January 2011
  • Excerpt: The D3100 is the latest incarnation of a line of cameras that – if we’re brutally honest – we find a bit annoying. In an effort not to bamboozle first-time SLR users, it presents most photographic options via the LCD screen and navigation pad. That might feel familiar for compact camera owners, but are labelled buttons really so terrifying? We much prefer controls that keep key settings within easy reach and encourage experimentation.
