Nikon D3100 Review the Most Powerful Entry-Level DSLR






     The D3100 is an entry level DSLR from Nikon. It was first announced in August 2010 but was only made available in September. It was first sold for around $500.

Nikon D3100 Review: Performance

The Nikon D3100 uses EXPEED 2 processor and has a DX sensor. It starts quickly. It's great for unexpected moments that should be captured in photo. The ISO sensitivity was increased. Its range is from 100 to 3200 and can be expanded to 12800. It is way better than the D300's ISO sensitivity which is expandable only up to 3200. The Nikon D3100 has the 11 point AF system just like the Nikon D3000.

The Nikon D3100 has 13 shooting modes for images. You can set it to auto which comes in two types distinguished by whether the flash is enabled or not. The manual counts as the third mode. Portrait and landscape count comes as fourth and fifth. The other options include night portrait, close up, guide mode, program auto, sports, children, shutter priority, and aperture priority. In addition, the Nikon D3100 also has in-camera retouching features.

Nikon D3100 Review: Structure and Design

The Nikon D3100 has the classic structure of a digital SLR. The structure has a handgrip feature made from a rubberized material located at the right part of the camera's front side. The size is surprising. Most Nikon cameras are big but this one is even smaller than the smallest Olympus DSLR. People with big hands may be uncomfortable using it. Nonetheless, the materials and finish are above satisfactory. It has a composite body but a bit rough. The rubber grip is great, however, especially for those who have sweaty palms.

The shutter's position is great, too. It is adjacent to the movie button. This helps people to switch from photo to video mode and vice versa more efficiently. On the top side of the Nikon D3100, you will see a mode dial and mode selector. They make choosing between single and continuous shooting mode much easier. You can also easily choose the quite shutter or to put it on self-timer mode.

The 3-inch LCD monitor shows information and the settings displayed depend on your current shooting setting. It has seven levels in terms of brightness. It also has an auto-dim feature. You can brighten things up by pushing one of the following: shutter button, info button or info edit button.

Nikon D3100 Review: Accessories

The Nikon D3100 comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery, its charger, strap, body cap, eye piece and cap, and a user guide CD. It is compatible with Nikon AF-S and AF-I lens series. In the AF-S series alone, you will already have more than 30 options.

Nikon D3100 Review Conclusion

The image quality is great considering that it is an entry level DLSR. One who can deal with the limits of its video mode (i.e. short recording time) will find that the Nikon D3100 is a great buy. One can say that it's definitely a powerful entry level DSLR. If you have used the Nikon D3000, the D3100 is definitely way better in many aspects. It is lightweight; feature packed and comes with a lens kit.
