Summary: This is my first DSLR camera, after doing so many research, talking to friends,Contacted Nikon USA customer care, I decided to buy this camera.I got this camera right before Thanks giving, as I know I'll not get best deal on this camera as this is one of the highest selling DSLR camera available in market.
Excerpt: Has been excellent so far. I purchased the D3100 for a few reasons and compromises. I am interested in photography and my family is interested in point and shoot photography and I what them to be able to use this camera as well so I can be in some pictures too. Therefore, the size, guide mode, graphic display of aperture and shutter speed, large screen, easy menu system, movie mode with auto focus, and scened modes played into the purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
Summary: its a very compact camera in the dslr range, about the same as the d3000 or d5000 in weight and dimensions. but, the features on this beginner level camera are amazing. id highly recommend this camera to anybody who wants to move beyond point and shoot into slr. for a camera that was supposed to be equal to canons xsi, this is amazing. 1080p video, high ISO ranges, sleek body design, and a 14.2 mp sensor makes for a great camera, even for professionals.
Summary: Easy to operate and understand, bought with ease and frequently used thereafter. If only the delivery was as simple . . . . . Tesco staff were very helpful but I would not recommend delivery by Yodel as it took the best part of 3 weeks to get my new toy.
