Summary: So far I've only been able to play with my new camera a few times, but so far I am very happy. The camera and kit lenses arrived as advertised, with all of the features that are so highly rated for this items, such as the helpful Guide mode on the camera and the vibration reduction feature on the lenses. The features and controls are a little different than the other Nikon I'm used to, and that's taking some getting used to. The photos are great.
Summary: The price-value for this DSLR camera is well worth it and its capabilities are more than an amateur photographer needs. The delivery of the camera by one of Amazon's associated companies was excellent.
Summary: This camera is good enough to take familiar pictures with a good nice quality, its also a great camera if you want to start learning photography. The lens is not so big but the price is good enough, Amazon did a good job on the fast delivering
Summary: I am very pleased with my new Nikon D3100. It came exactly as advertised, and although I am a novice photographer, I enjoy learning new things daily. I feel that this camera is very user-friendly and is the perfect entry-level DSLR. My pictures have improved so much already!
Summary: One real bonus of a digital camera is that it allows you to get out in the field and put a great workout on the hardware; cutting into the learning curve without the expense of film. It would have been financially prohibitive for me to take one thousand plus photos over two days in order to become familiar with the system if I had to use a film camera. I am most pleased with the quality I expect from Nikon.
Summary: Of course after all the research and finding a price that I found to be the best, I purchase the camera and then find it $100.00 cheaper at a local camera store. I know it is a fantastic camera, I've spoken to several other friends that have this model and they love it as well. The lenses from my existing D50 all fit onto this model as well and that is a Huge Plus!
