Awesome camera for its value!
I mainly use this camera for landscape and low light photography. This camera does well in low light with moderate iso values. I was actually impressed at the low noise that this camera produced when used in conjuction with iso settings. This camera takes amazing photos day or night as one would expect with a dslr. All the buttons and displays are easy to see and navigating through the menu was a breeze. White balance settings are very flexible. You have two options to set when using "preset"...View full Review
I mainly use this camera for landscape and low light photography. This camera does well in low light with moderate iso values. I was actually impressed at the low noise that this camera produced when used in conjuction with iso settings. This camera takes amazing photos day or night as one would expect with a dslr. All the buttons and displays are easy to see and navigating through the menu was a breeze. White balance settings are very flexible. You have two options to set when using "preset" mode. There are a few things that aren't so great with this camera. 1)You can only record 10 minutes of HD video. 2)In video mode, the camera's mic picks up the AF motor so it is recorded with your audio. And that's it! This camera is perfect for those just starting in photography like me. Its value makes up for in great photos (so long as you know how to work the camera!) All in all, a great camera.

The D3100 is a entry level DSLR. 14 mp by today's standard is weak but in reality is more than enough. This was my 14 yo daughter birthday present and for that is much more camera than she needs. Great image quality , focus is very responsive. The live view is weak but is there. The lens has VR and is sharper than many believe it to be, menus are simple and intuitive. This is a refurbished product came in a white box nut it looked pretty much new to my eyes. I'd buy it again on a limited budget looking fora nice DSLR.
This is a great camera! It came with two scratches on it but it is refurbished so it's okay. Its barely been used which is amazing. Thanks for the great deal and free 2-day shipping! Will definitely shop here again.
I love this camera. I read a lot of reviews between Canon and Nikon before purchasing my first DSLR. I am really glad I went with this model, and through Adorama as well. I use it to take action photos of the teams I coach, family photos, our dog, and recently I took it to a wedding and took pictures at the reception. It is light and compact, not too big but big enough you feel like you have a quality camera with you.
I bought this SLR camera so I could take really nice pics of my kids playing different sports. I LOVE this camera! Its so easy to use, even for a newby like myself. Totally worth every penny!!!
I always liked the convenience of a pocket camera in my business shooting 100 - 200 photos a day of dogs I care for. I wanted to improve my picture taking so I bought this camera on the advice of Ken Rockwell. It's got all sorts of great features if you want to get finicky, but just set on auto it is so easy to use I can hardly believe it. Now I'm taking 300 - 400 pix a day and the quality of them has improved tenfold. My clients absolutely love the pictures I'm emailing to them. The Nikon D3100 has made it so easy for me! It's a real quality camera, very fast to capture my always moving subjects, and super simple to use.
This camera is amazing. It takes great pictures and has great focusing abilities. I do appreciate that it comes with 2 different t size lenses. To get you started
I am a semi Pro Photographer and I have some very very expensive equipment. I take very good care of this equipment and generally only use is for commissioned shoots or important personal events. The usual substitution for a DSLR is a point and shoot or a mirrorless camera but I am not the biggest point and shoot fan and I am really really disappointed with Nikon's 1 series. So what I usually do is I have an older Intro Level DSLR to take with me everywhere and if anything happens too it, well darn but no biggy. I recently replaced my old D60 with the D3100 and so far I absolutely love it. It is an intro level camera so we are talking bare bones and basic and with all things you do get what you pay for but I make no apologies for this little trooper. If you are looking for an intro level DSLR as a first DSLR or to upgrade from an aging model then look no further. The D3000 series is an excellent line. It has all of the auto modes you could ever ask for for the newbies so do not be intimidated by the idea of this being too much camera for you it is incredibly user friendly. But my favourite part is that this camera grows with you as you develop your skill and knowledge. So get to know it, take some classes, get some more kit to expand your abilities but have no doubt it will keep up with you every step of the way. To be fair this is not a camera I would take on commissioned shoots but even then get the right lighting and the right lens and there really is no reason you couldn't if you wanted. My only bones to pick with the D3100 are that for video (and I shoots stills, I could hardly care less) the sound and the auto focus are terrible but again you get what you pay for and this model was never really intended to be strong in video. If you are looking for a video capable intro level camera then you will love the D5000 series with much better sound and auto focus. And the only actual legitimate complaint I have with the D3100 is there is no Inferred sensor to allow wireless remote control. Why? Why would you do that you have always had it in you DSLRs, why cut it from this model? Fortunately Nikon fixed this issue in the D3200 and D3300 models. Two amazing intro level DSLRs in their own right. So aside from one mirror annoyance I have to say, great job Nikon I am a life long Nikon shooter but I know, love and use most other brands as well, still I am pleased I chose Nikon for my kit. If you are looking for an intro Level DSLR the D3100 and it's successors the D3200 and D3300 are excellent choices that are perfect for complete beginners and grow with you every step of the way.
Awesome camera! Good for people moving from film to D-SLR, or professional photographers. Easy to use, high quality, great pictures!
The D3100 is a good start for those want to venture into DSLR. It has all the basic features to learn the rope of taking great digital photographs.
Just received camera. Pleased with package and instructions. After some time will be better able to determine the numbers of stars involved. From what limited time involved it would appear a very favorable rating will be forth coming.
