Nikon D3100 - What Can It Really Do?
The new Nikon D3100 digital SLR camera speaks to the growing ranks of enthusiastic D-SLR users and aspiring photographers by providing an easy-to-use and affordable entrance to the world of Nikon D-SLRs. The 14.2-megapixel D3100 has powerful features, such as the enhanced Guide Mode that makes it easy to unleash creative potential and capture memories with still images and full HD video. Like having a personal photo tutor at your fingertips, this unique feature provides a simple graphical interface on the cameras LCD that guides users by suggesting and/or adjusting camera settings to achieve the desired end result images. The D3100 is also the worlds first D-SLR to introduce full time auto focus (AF) in Live View and D-Movie mode to effortlessly achieve the critical focus needed when shooting Full HD 1080p video.

Our Thoughts on the Nikon D3100
Every camera brand today will suggest that they have High Definition Movie capture built into their cameras and they all pretty much offer the same functionality , EXCEPT Nikon. Nikon pioneered HD movie capture in DSLR cameras and they introduce contrast based auto focusing when in live view mode. What this really means that you can use your new Nikon DSLR camera like you would a traditional video camera and not have to worry about keeping the subjects in the video in focus. This is a key difference and advantage of the Nikon D3100 DSLR camera and we certainly recommend it as a key feature to consider prior to your purchase, if you are going to shoot HD Movies that is. (Full HD movie captuire is explained in the following paragraph).

Nikon D3100 - Full HD Video Made Easy with D-Movie
The Nikon D3100 D-SLR allows users to capture stunning Full HD, 1080p resolution (1920x1080) movies. Users can record cinematic quality 24p video clips, or shoot at 24 or 30 frames-per-second at 720p, ideal for sharing online. By incorporating versatile NIKKOR lenses to the equation, users can now create a variety of photography effects to video such as isolating subjects with a shallow depth of field, and recording in low light conditions. NIKKOR lenses also deliver the sharpness needed for HD video, and Nikons Vibration Reduction (VR) II technology helps to eliminate camera shake.


Nikon D3100 - The camera that amazes.

The Nikon D3100 employs Nikon's latest breakthrough technology to deliver superb results. A newly developed DX-format CMOS sensor with 14.2 effective megapixels works in tandem with new EXPEED 2 image processing engine to produce highly detailed images containing rich tonal gradations and faithful color. This combination also helps produce beautifully defocused backgrounds - a hallmark of quality digital SLR cameras. In addition, a maximum ISO of 3200 (expandable to ISO 12800 equivalent using the Hi 2 setting) allows you to shoot without worrying about camera-shake blur.

Nikon D3100 - Active D-Lighting - Beautiful balancing of light and shade
Shooting in bright sunlight often produces pictures with extreme contrast between light and dark areas, resulting in loss of tone and detail. Active D-Lighting effectively combats this by preserving important details in shadows and highlights. The results are optimally exposed photos that better reflect the scene as you saw it.

Nikon D3100 - Guide Mode - The sure way to obtain desired results
An enchanting portrait against a softly defocused background, or a radiant couple surrounded by sparkling lights. Taking photos like these is easy with the Nikon D3100's Guide Mode - in-camera guidance that shows you step-by-step how to change camera settings. Just select a Guide Mode setting that matches the scene then let Guide Mode assist. Not only will you obtain the desired results, you'll understand how you achieved them. Guide Mode even displays sample photos so you'll know what to expect from each setting.
Nikon D3100 - Help function - One-touch access to in-camera assistance
When viewing menu items and you don't understand a function, just press the help button. A description of the currently selected item will be displayed while the button is pressed. Release the button and the previous screen appears. A truly handy function that makes it easy for even first-time D-SLR users to operate the Nikon D3100.
Nikon D3100 - Live View - Live View with new AF modes and large 3" monitor
Live View gives you an intuitive, familiar way to photograph playful pets or children on the move. Just flip a switch and you're ready to go. When Live View is activated and new full-time-servo AF (AF-F) is selected, the camera keeps subjects in focus without having to press the shutter-release button - convenient for photos and movies. There is also new face-priority AF that locks focus on faces, even on people not directly facing the camera. Live View makes D3100 as easy to use as a compact camera.
Nikon D3100 - 11 Point Auto Focus System
The Nikon D3100's precision high-speed autofocus responds immediately to changes in scene or composition, maintaining tack-sharp focus to capture fleeting expressions and fast-moving sports. The all-important central focus point features a cross-type sensor while the new superimposed display achieves a clear, uncluttered viewfinder. Various autofocus modes cover nearly any situation, including auto-area AF that automatically selects the subject on which to focus, and 3D-tracking (11 points)* that maintains focus on a subject regardless of changes in composition as long as the shutter-release button is pressed halfway.
* When autofocus is set to AF-A or AF-C.

Nikon D3100 - Built-in pop-up flash
When the light gets low or you find yourself shooting in tricky backlit lighting, use the built-in pop-up flash to brighten the scene. It activates automatically when needed depending on exposure mode*, or can be enabled manually. In addition, support for i-TTL flash control increases exposure accuracy.
* When Scene Mode is set to Auto, Portrait, Child, Close-up or Night portrait

Nikon D3100 - Compact and lightweight

At only approx. 505 g (1lb. 1.8 oz.)*, the compact and lightweight D3100 goes where you go. And it's so easy to use thanks to the ergonomic grip that simplifies shooting, both in horizontal and vertical positions. New dedicated controls for frequently used functions like Live View, D-Movie and shutter release modes further enhance ease of use.

* With battery and memory card but without body cap.

Nikon D3100 - Continuous 3 fps shooting
The Nikon D3100 can shoot approximately 3 frames per second - great for capturing dynamic motion and elusive facial expressions that are a challenge for any photographer. Simply rotate the release-mode selector and shoot away.


Nikon D3100 - New shutter mechanism - Quiet shooting
The Nikon D3100 employs a newly developed shutter that is ideal for both Live View and movie shooting. The lightweight and compact design coupled with the ability to operate while the mirror is up during Live View shooting contributes to quiet, energy-efficient performance. It is also highly durable, having been tested to 100,000 cycles.

Nikon D3100 - Rangefinder - Quick and easy focusing
When focusing manually, the electronic rangefinder helps you quickly achieve proper focus. It is especially useful when shooting in dimly lit settings.

Nikon D3100 - Integrated Dust Reduction System
The affordable Nikon D3100 is equipped with Nikon's Integrated Dust Reduction System. This solution includes a special Airflow Control System that redirects dust away from the low-pass filter located in front of the image sensor. Additionally, when powering the camera on or off, the filter automatically vibrates at precise frequencies to release image-degrading dust that may adhere to it.

Nikon D3100 - Convenient playback - Find images instantly by date
The D3100's playback options make it easy to select pictures for viewing or retouching. You can view pictures one at a time or in groups of 4, 9, or 72. A Calendar view is also available, which organizes photos by shooting date and time then displays them in a handsome calendar format.
Date imprint - Stamp photos with shooting date
Know the exact date you took a photo. The position of the date changes automatically depending on camera orientation.
