Nikon D3100: A good choice for any photographer

For those wishing to try out DSLR cameras for the first time or are attracted to its eye-catchy and appealing design, the Nikon D3100 is clearly a better choice. DSLR cameras are Digital Sing-Lens Reflex Cameras that made a great debut in the market several years ago, and have never ceased to amaze even newcomers. They combine the Single-Lens Reflex (SLR) camera with a digital camera back producing a very strong, enticing and user-friendly camera. It is this marriage of the SLR camera with its digital counterpart that not only provides the main difference between these cameras and digital cameras, but also gives it the unique performance that most photographers are attracted to every season.
Apart from making a reputable name as an entry-level or beginner DSLR camera, the Nikon D3100 is truly an asset that any serious photographer should have it his or her collection. It's performance compared to its immediate predecessor is very commendable. With a 14.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor and a 1080P HD video at 24fps (H.264), this camera is definitely capable of capturing very brilliant photos as well as spectacular videos for normal use. At a price that is just right for the pocket, this is a true must-have even for a professional photographer who from time to time needs to brush up on their photography or video-shooting skills.
The veterans in the field of photography will agree with me that the Nikon group of digital cameras have earned a great name as arguably the best performing cameras in low light conditions. Apart from its full HD video capture capabilities, the Nikon D3100 camera also offers basic image editing right in the camera without having to mess around with external video or photo-editing software. One major advantage of the DSLR cameras over point-and-shoot cameras is the versatility or the wide choice of lenses that can be used or customised to capture photos and videos in a specific way. The Nikon D3100 is no exception in providing this advantage to its users while also maintaining its attractive ergonomic features.
The Nikon D3100 also comes with a lens kit increasing the variety of options to choose from while attempting to capture the best shot in your photography or video-shooting sprees. It is important to note however, that while it is compatible with other Nikon lenses, it will only auto focus with AFS compatible lenses. Auto Focus Silent Wave (AFS) is a type of focusing motor used in a number of AF Nikon lenses, and the AFS motor is known to be very fast and quiet. These lenses are not only a state-of-the-art invention, but also famed worldwide for delivering more quality than they promise. The Nikon D3100's fast 11-point auto focus system coupled with split-second shutter response truly eliminate the frustration of shutter delay as well as capturing those moments that other cameras usually miss.
Its compact and lightweight design enables it to enjoy more popularity especially amongst armatures in the field, and new-entrants who are looking not only for quality and design but also for increased portability in their gadgets. However, due to its small and compact body, the Nikon D3100's viewfinder is relatively quite small, and might need to be improved in the future models. It is true that its high quality photos, image sharpness, amazing video-recording capability and its easily-navigable guide mode makes it stand out amongst the rest. It is crystal clear that if you are a hobbyist, a lens-professional photographer, or a photographer searching for the best DSLR camera with a tight budget, then the Nikon D3100 is obviously the best choice for you.
