Comments:

I am an amateur photographer at best, but I bought this camera to take pictures of my newborn because the point and shoot cameras were not cutting it anymore. The camera is easy to figure out. I read most of the manual (boring but informative) and now I am taking great pictures within the manual mode.

The camera is just wonderful when it comes to taking pictures of my children. Clear quality, quick auto-focus, keeps up with action shots - the kids are always wanting to get their picture taken. Professional quality without the sacrificing price!

I really like this camera i use it for landscapes mostly . I have owned camera's from the 60's 70's and 80's 35mm some without any auto focus. Since I have owned the Nikon D3100 I have taken about 150 pics so far everyone was clear.I am 54 years old been taking pics. my whole life this is the best camera I ever had. [...]

Comments:

I haven't had a lot of time to spend with the camera but so far it is exceeding my expectations. Autofocus is quick and accurate. The manual lacks a lot of info but I bought a book on the camera and it explains it very well. It is comfortable to use, even with my large hands unlike a lot of the point and shoots that are to small for me. For the money there is nothing that I have found that will come close!

I simply wanted a new hobby AND get great images that I could share and enjoy. Instead I have inspired others, created a family of "take my picture" nuts and found we're doing more stuff together so we can take pictures! Some shots are ordinary though exceptionally clear and crisp while others have people double-taking over their depth and beauty. I have pro-photographers as friends and family and they're impressed with my zero training and ability to capture moments like a pro. So far the shots have been indoor shots of the kids and shots outdoors and at the park. The continuous shooting mode is great for trying to sneak in the perfect candid shot of kids who don't wish to sit still or are avoiding a shot in the first place. The in-camera editing is a wonderful tool as well. The only downside I've experienced in the entire process of ordering and using the camera was one small piece being missing (seems like a factory packing mistake based on the factory supplied parts list) [...] I did a lot of research on which camera to purchase AND where. I settled on Abe's because of the amazing deal that I've yet to see replicated elsewhere. Bottom line: If you want a great camera and are new to the DSLRs/photography, the D3100 is a great way to start a new passion or feed one buried deep within. I totally recommend a bundle/kit so you get accessories you might otherwise forget or not realize how necessary they truly are. (Like a cleaning kit or extra battery.)

This was my first Nikon purchase and I'm completely in love and satisfied with it. I'm not a professional photographer but wanted something better than a point and shoot for special events. This fit all of my requirements and was relatively inexpensive for what it was.
