Excerpt: I recently bought this cameral with two lenses on amazon, and when I first got it, I had no idea how to use it, but after going through some instructions, it was fine. This is a pretty good competitor with the Canon Rebel, which my friend owns. Though the rebel has some features this camera does not, I like the D3100 better because of its image quality and better color.
Excerpt: My sister has this Camera, the nikon D3100, and i had the pleasure of using it during the Thanksgiving holiday. MMMMM turkey. The camera controls are super easy to use even for the novice, like me, and are close enough to the controls on my Canon, i could figure them out no problem. This camera takes super sharp, well , tack sharp pictures, with the kit lens.
Excerpt: After having a Nikon D3000 for just over a year when it started giving me problems, I decided rather than replacing it, I'd "upgrade" to the Nikon D3100. Although I prefer the setup of the controls, and the HD video option is a plus, I don't know if the new features are worth the extra money. As an amateur photographer who mostly enjoys taking pictures of my kids, I was probably just as happy with my old D3000 as I am with the new D3100.
Summary: The lens protector is very good for stopping scratching, and keeps it from smudging. Keeps camera like new. I highly recommend this product to anybody buying a new camera.This is for a Nikon D3100.
Summary: My wife loves her camera. We had an older version of it from several years ago. It was lost at a park, so I bought her a new one for our anniversary. This kit comes with it all... The only thing it could come with as a kit that would make it even better is an option for a lighting kit and / or a protective case for the camera. Good product, good delivery experience. Thumbs up.
Summary: This kit is awesome and comes with just about everything you need. The camera takes awesome pictures and if you purchase the Nikon D3100 book along with this, you'll be in even better shape. Once you have the book you can understand how to use the camera to its abilities. I would recommend this to just about everyone.
Summary: I love the Nikon D3100 camera. Excellent DSLR for beginners. The guide mode is very helpful to learn tricks about different photography technique. The value bundle is worth for most of its items. The tripod broke after 4-5 uses, hence that is pretty much useless. Lens hood could have been of better quality. Card reader is also useless since most of the computers today have SD card readers. The Nikon DVD is informative.
