Nikon D3100 (14.2mp) Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens Kit
1 January 2013
Summary: I am a retired press photographer and bought the Nikon D3100 to photograph my Nieces wedding. Although I have been using a Nikon D70 for a number of years, I have found the advances made in the D3100 quite incredible, the image quality produced by the 14.2mp sensor produces rich colour with excellent detail, enabling really good enlargements, often my prints are A3+ size. Start-up time is almost instant and ready for action before you can put the camera to your eye.
Excerpt: From the very first minutes I liked this camera. Lightweight, relatively small, easy to use. It has digital camera modes such as: no flash, daylight, nature, macro, children, etc. or Auto. You can also find a manual control. Relatively long battery life is one of the advantages of this camera. It shots 500 photos without need to charge. And the charger included with this camera is quite normal. In this case the camera is charged after 1.5-2h.
Pros: The price, good photo quality, choice of lenses available, battery life, easy to use
Excerpt: I brought this camera knowing nothing about taking pictures. I think I have only ever owned one other camera in my life and that was about 15 years ago. The guide modes on the camera teach you most things you need to know and the picures you can start to take fairly quickly are great. I have had the camera about a month now and can pretty much get any effect I want to in complete manual mode all thanks to the guides build into the camera software.
Pros: ease of use
Cons: No auto focus motor built into the camera so limits the type of lenses avaiable .
Conclusion: A beginner thinks about the rate and performance and the ease in operation. This camera got a mode where learning is possible. The clarity of the picture is good. High ISO enables to pictures in low light. The built in flash is okay for a non-professional.One facility which is very much desired and could have made the camera as one of very good is built in motor for auto focus like a D90. The kit lense is great...at its price range.
