Nikon D3100 Review

The Nikon D3100 is another exclusively made digital camera from Nikon who has persistently been making entry-level DSLRs. It has given you the pleasantness with its well-laid-out controls, easy to understand guidelines, ultimate manual video capture control and first-rate photo quality. This can be tagged as the typical photographer’s best friend which has a streamlined body that is sure to be loved by certified photojournalists. However, it will not be intimidating for those who are just getting there.


The Nikon D3100 has a friendliness and down-to-earth feel. But even if it has a solid and inevitable performance, you cannot ignore the fact that it is quite outdone in the competition, not by other contenders though, because it is obviously more advanced compared to others. It is the underdog if you judge it against its line mates. The D3100 also has a quite exceptional noise profile. Moreover this camera has a neat JPEG collection from ISO 3200 up to ISO 800. It can capture shots that are sharpened and saturated in a very light way. It produces an unkempt photographic quality that does not petrify the image or make it look unrealistic but helps keep the photo’s candidness intact. The Nikon D3100 has been the hero of the Nikon Company as it nearly hit the bottom when its previous version “D40” almost didn’t sell. The body of the D3100 is a slight refresh from the utterly basic design of the D40 which is so yesteryear.


Now it has an extra button positioned at the area of the screen, a drive mode switch placed at the base of a mode dial, an engaging sprung lever, and a unswerving record movie button. Add that up to the revolutionized hand-holding ‘Guide Mode’ and the autofocus mode which helps to make video shooting less troublesome. It also gives it a better focal quality. Majority of camera inventors emphasize how mirrorless cameras are creating an entirely new marketable era that forbids it to clash with other entry-level DSLRs and allows it to just make a name for itself. But, even if the D3100 is unequivocally a DSLR, the beginner-friendly guide mode it has objectively put it to rivalry with a bunch of comparatively acquisitive point-and-shoot upgraders such as the mirrorless model. And so, no matter how improved and invigorated the Nikon DSLR D3100 may seem, it still remains to be unprotected from all the impending rumors, reasonable doubts, and unwavering cynical beliefs as to how well will these camera cope or moreover, exceed to the reputation well established by its predecessors.


And what better way to end this than to say that this camera’s flaw includes the no bracketing option, the Camera RAW that does not support a Photoshop or Lightroom, the field preview that has no depth, it also doesn’t allow you to use a wireless remote which makes it uneasy for you to somehow be in the picture and makes a weird lens focusing sound that is totally frustrating because as much as possible you want to have a video recording that is as neat as possible and won’t have any distracting sounds of any kind. That’s probably it. A great buy, though. 

  • The Good :
    Good quality photos, Meets the needs of amateur and professional photgraphers
  • The Bad :
    No depth of field preview, Lacks bracketing option, Is not that advanced compared to its line mates
Our score:
4.5 / 5
