The Entry Level dSLR
Member Name: WolvenRize
Advantages: Quick Startup, Quiet Shutter Release Option, RAW format available, Easily Accessible Movie Mode
Disadvantages: Small Viewfinder, Slower Performance
At £363, the Nikon D3100 is a dSLR truly worth considering, with a pixel count of 14.2 million and a 23.1 x 15.4 mm CMOS sensor. Though counted as entry-level, it serves its purpose well, appeasing even the most experienced of photographers. Even if you might be a total newbie to the fascinating area of photography and have had no previous knowledge of how to use dSLR cameras or how they operate, the Nikon D3100 does its best to help you, incorporating a guide mode specifically there to help those who require it.
However, if you're a professional, don't worry, as the camera also has manual focused settings such as shutter speed and aperture priority, a programmable setting and a purely manual setting where one's able to control everything from ISO to exposure with a little button pressing.
The screen's easy to navigate, with bright colours and clearly labelled menu options, and the camera itself has a few snazzy photo-editing features that you can use to spice up your pictures. Moreover, the weight of the camera isn't too at approximately 505g, so you can take all the time you need creating those perfect little moments.
Summary: Overall, it's a good camera for beginners, but professionals should opt for a higher grade dSLR
