Excerpt: Have only had this camera a week so still learning what all it's capable of doing. The automatic features are pretty easy to understand and operate. Camera has trouble autofocusing sometimes when taking pictures using LCD screen and pictures come out fuzzy.
Summary: I am very happy with the camera, I could have not got a better product for my introduction to Digital photography and I have only been improving and taking better photos everytime. The rest of the articles are not very useful, except for a couple of lens and filters.
Summary: I bought this for my fiance to learn SLR photography with. I've been a Nikon user for over 30 years, and they have always been trustworthy photographic tools. This camera lives up to the reputation.
Excerpt: this camera is fine, but I am interested in doing astrophotography and all the other astronomers have Canons and they are unable to answer my questions as I am just learning. So having a NIkkon leaves me in the learch as I am trying to learn the specifics of astrophotography.
Excerpt: I bought the D-3100 kit with the 18-55, and 55-200 VR kit lenses, but would only advise someone to do this, if they do NOT plan to buy other Nikkor Lenses, and don't have older Nikkor lenses like the AI-S lenses.
