Introduction

The Nikon D3100 represents the entry point for Nikon's current DSLR lineup, featuring a 10-megapixel CMOS sensor, 2.8fps shooting, and beginner-friendly features such as Nikon's "guide" mode. The D3100 is aimed squarely at those looking to just get into interchangeable lens cameras, but offers the kind of image quality and affordable price point that will likely give even more advanced users pause when considering their next camera.
