Summary: This camera takes great pictures. The only thing is that its not too good on taking long videos. The camera does take great video BUT if you want to take a video longer then 5 or 8 mins the camera will get to HOT and shut off. Otherwise good camera if you can wait till a great deal on price.
Summary: Nikon D3100 kit met my expectation for a beginner DSLR. This is my first DLSR and so far, I have enjoyed playing with it. The only "con" would be the SD card door does not close as tight as I'd like. Other than that, I like the D3100 very much.
Summary: I have had my camera for over a year now and I still love it! I take hundreds of pictures every day and it holds up to the abuse. The carrying case is great, the SD card holds tons of pictures, the lens with filter are good, and the battery lasts quite a while. The camera its self is wonderful! I had an error message after using it for about 6 months and Nikon repaired it and sent it back for free. They even thoroughly cleaned it for me so it was like new again!
