PhotographyBLOG has reviewed the Nikon D3100 entry-level DSLR. In case you didn’t know, the D3100 features a newly designed 14-megapixel DX format sensor, a quick-access Live View mode, one-touch Full HD video recording with AutoFocus, an interactive Guide mode, a sensor dust buster and an 11-point AutoFocus module. The D3100 supports a sensitivity range of ISO 100 – 3,200 (expandable to ISO 12,800). Here is the conclusion:
As regards the Nikon D3100′s ergonomics as a traditional DSLR camera, it’s not bad at all, but we would have liked to see separate buttons for ISO and WB, both of which can be mapped onto the handy Fn button, but alas not at the same time. Focusing speed and accuracy – especially in low light – could also be improved, as neither was optimal with the kit lens.
Designed for beginners, the Nikon D3100 is currently available for $579.95 in the USA. [PhotographyBLOG]
