Designed for newcomers to D-SLR photography, the Nikon D3100 is a feature-rich, simple to use camera that can teach you more about the art of photography through the intelligent step-by-step guide mode. Whether you are shooting a delicately composed still life, everyday snapshots or full HD movies, the D3100 produces images with exceptional detail and vivid colours even in dimly lit settings.
The D3100s intuitive design with superior ergonomics provides a secure grip with dedicated controls close at hand for frequently used functions like the shutter release, live view and scene recognition. The compact, lightweight body, weighing only 455g, makes this SLR the ideal camera to take on holiday or out on long country walks.
Leveraging our vast technological know-how the effective 14.2MP DX-format CMOS image sensor works in tandem with the EXPEED 2 image processing engine to produce highly detailed photos and movies containing rich tonal gradations. 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 blur due to camera-shake.
