Excerpt: I am currently using this to record childrens adventures. I also do some outdoor photogrophy. Without the addition of an external flash you will have some difficulty with speed and action shots. This is a great camera for someone moving up from a basic poin and shoot to greater mega pixels.
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...
Summary: Go buy it now, and don't panic. you'll get the best camera in this price range, buy if you're looking for something little bit better, with a better display and pictures quality get the D3200
Pros: It's just a great starter level DSLR, it takes a stunning pictures and a beautiful 1080p video, buy it if you gonna use it for family profissional pictures, or you want to start in the photography world with a cheap and great quality DSLR.
Cons: the only problem I guess is it doesn't have a Microphone jack. However I used an alternative way to record my audio with a separate audio recorder.
good, but... wishing I could splurged on a full frame

Summary: I like this. But I really wanted a full frame. The reason it gets 4 stars is because you cannot use a wireless remote shutter with this model but you could with the d3000. I dont get that. I ordered one and had to return it.
Summary: Overall I was happy with my camera kit, however, the addtl lens adaptors that come with it were not satisfactory. I actually ended up having to buy an actual zoom lens. After I received the kit I did check out some addtl reviews and all said they felt the lens adaptors were inadequate as well.
