Nikon D3100 is an entry-level DX-format camera, ideal for photographers preparing to refine their skills in DSLR cameras.

Sensor Technology

This camera is equipped with a highly capable 14.2 MP CMOS imaging sensor that is more that able to take high quality images across a wide range of lighting conditions. This sensor is also adept at adapting to many ISO settings that can result in better images in .lower lighting conditions as well. It is equipped with the EXPEED 2 image processing engine.

Less Blur

The lens and sensor arrangement together work in reducing the visual artefacts seen on images. The better the sensor, clearer will be the image output. The Nikon D3100 camera is capable of clicking high quality images that result in less blur even under low lighting conditions.

Active D Lighting

This camera is equipped with the Active D Lighting feature that balances out the contrast even in brightly lit scenes. When we shoot images in brightly lit areas, like outdoors on a bright and sunny day, there can be instances where pictures may appear to have extreme contrast between the light and dark areas of the frame. This anomaly is reduced greatly with the Active D Lighting feature.

Picture Control

This feature allows you to set specific control settings for 6 different picture modes. Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Landscape and Portrait mode. You also have an Easy-to-view finder that is incorporated into the system.

Auto Selection and Movies

With the Automatic Scene Selector, you can choose the right picture settings just by choosing the automatic mode and pressing a button for the onboard image sensor to select the right image settings according to the scene. It is also possible to take full HD videos with the Nikon camera. The 11 Point Auto Focus system allows you to individually focus along 11 different points through the viewfinder. It also comes with Eye-Fi Support.

Lets begin!
Nikon , one of the best camera makers -- we all know right.
Again the company has done it with D3100. If you are a regular digital camera user and buying this as you first DSLR you will fall in love with it at first look (really).
The basics;
You can get the specs from any where you want so i am not wasting in writing it.
Still, i will have a say about the image sensor size which is the heart of any camera and trust me this has a golden heart. If you wish to know the conversion of...

I am impressed .This is my first DSLR and I am loving it.
First thing I should tell here so many ppl has mentioned very constructive comments in the review. Before buying this DSLR I was pretty confused on which one to buy say in my list
Nikon D3100
Canon 1100D
Canon 550D
Nikon D5100

But I dont have lots of money per se. After doing so much research I opted for Nikon D3100 coz the gripping was so good in my hand than any others.

I have tried Canon 550D too ... it is a good camera to be ver...

Go for a higher one instead of this handicap DSLR...

Only Nikon AF-S lenses will auto focus on D3100. Nikon chose to not put a focusing motor in the D3000, D3100, D5000 and D5100 so you'd have to buy the more expensive AF-S lenses that have a focusing motor in the lens. The Nikon AF 50mm f1.8D is about $140.00 while the new Nikon AF-S 50mm f1.8G is about $220.00 - a nice extra $80.00 or thereabouts in profit for Nikon.

If you use the AF 50mm f1.8D on your D3100 you will have to manually focus the lens. It will not auto focus on your camera.

Zooming? we are talking about a DSLR here, not a tiny sensor P&S camera. If you don't know what you are talking about, don't make such stupid, joke of the 21st century comments. DSLR doesn't deal in Number X zoom, it uses the term focal length to specify its reach, the 18-55mm lens that comes with a d3100 is a decent lens, if you need to take faraway stuff you have to buy a telephoto lens, ask any real photographer, photography is not about zooming, they zoom with their legs, many of them op...

My first DSLR Nikon D3100

Purchased this about 3 weeks back, and am amazed at its performance:
- My decision to buy Nikon D3100 v/s Canon 1100D was not bad. Though more expensive, the feel in hand, compactness, sensor size, HD movies capability, 3" dispalay, rubber grip tilted my decision towards Nikon.
- excellent image quality & low noise at 14MP, even with flash.
- Kit lens has its limitations, but ok for me to begin with experimenting.
- I manual focusing for macro / close up shots much better than autofocus.
- Th...

Best DSLR for the beginners.

I have done lots of research, I am confused between D3200, D5100, canon 600D and sony a58, but all of them little expensive and I get this on Flipkart @21k. Its a too good a deal to miss and now I can spend my money to buy some lenses. If you are new to DSLR photography it will give you enough satisfaction.

Hats off to flipkart. mind blowing service. they deliver me within 2 days.

Downside of this camera is that it is launched in 2010 and also the screen's resolution is poor and it doesn't...

Your Review was a good one, but have little inaccuracies, i too have been using this DSLR for 18 months with sb 400 flash and i bought it for 28500 then. The thing is that it can continuously auto focus while video recording and been one of the first entry level SLR to do so. The problem with video recording is that, it can only shoot 1080p at 24fps. While many other entry level SLR's can do it at 30 fps. The continuous auto focus can cause noise in the video which is a drawback.

Best camera in its range!!

Its been 8 months im using it n im totally happy with this camera. Has all the feature that you might expect from a camera. The 18-55mm lens which come with the camera is good for general purpose use but it wont be long before you start feeling its limited zooming ability. So, be ready to buy a zoom lens soon.

It has good battery backup, user friendly ,easy to operate. the most recommended product if you are thinking to move from your point n shoot to SLR..Its the best in its range..for sur...

A very good and reliable first DSLR

I have been using my D3100 for about a year and half now. When I bought it then it was for 29,000 with kit-lens. I see that the price has not dropped much - that tells something about its credence.

When it was launched, buying this was a no-brainer- it was simply the best entry level DSLR available in the price range then. But now a D5100, or maybe Canon 550D if you can stretch a little, will be a better VFM buy IMHO.

The only thing which troubles me with this camera is the absence of brack...
