Summary: Almost everytime i am going outside i always get the urge to take along my D3100 with me because you never know when you get that perfect shot. The video and still images you see upfront with the D3100 is shocking and you seem to fall in love with this camera and never get bored especially with all the features you have to explore.Good job Nikon...PS I NEED TO ENHANCE MY LIMITED CAMERA SKILLS BY JOINING A PHOTO CLASS TO IMPROVE MY HOBBIE.
Excerpt: My husband bought me the Nikon D3100 Digital Camera as a Christmas present because I love to take pictures. I have two small children and have wanted a really nice camera for a long time to photograph my family and friends. My husband found Cameta Camera while looking for my Christmas present. We were unsure at first because you never know when you purchase out of state if you are going to be sorry for doing so.
Excerpt: We were a little nervous about ordering a refurbished camera, but it came in excellent condition, looking like new. Everything has functioned just as it should. We've had a great experience so far.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Quiet
Excerpt: I was looking to upgrade from my previous non SLR digital camera. I had used a film SLR for many years and even this "entry level" camera had so much more in features than my film camera. I was not prepared to spend a lot of money to get features that I would rarely use and the D3100 fitted my needs.<br />I have frequently purchased factory refurbished products, since they are reviewed for quality by factory trained technicians.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I am a boat captain and the camera is great for family shots and wilderness shots, does everything I need it to and more. It has been very fun learning about photography and the pictures are amazing, even in auto when I am in a rush for a shot. Battery was deficient though, unhappy about lack of help for that.

Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Summary: This is my first d/SLR. So far, I've been very happy with my photographic results. The on-board RAW editing and video trimming reduce the amount of housekeeping I'd normally do in post on a desktop. WB is the only feature I have set to Auto and it's very accurate in most scenarios. I really have only two complaints: 1.) No manual mode for video (although, you can use a flashlight to adjust the exposure and then lock it.) 2.
