The D3100 comes equipped with Nikon’s easy-to-use Guide Mode to help you take better photos and capture breathtaking Full 1080p HD movies. Best of all, the D3100 is ready to go, out-of-the-box with an included AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens. Whether shooting casual snapshots, a delicately composed still life or Full HD movies, you’ll love the ease with which D3100 does it all.
Exceptional image detail
Nikon equipped the D3100 with a newly developed CMOS sensor for outstanding subject detail and smooth color gradation. Whether shooting photos or Full HD movies, the sensor is crucial to image quality. The high pixel count of D3100’s sensor produces photos of striking clarity, revealing all the nuance of the original scene with minimum noise—ideal for intricately detailed textures and noise-free background defocus.
Bring moments to life
Discover the difference a digital SLR makes when shooting movies. A wide selection of NIKKOR lenses gives you freedom to explore different angles and obtain lovely defocused backgrounds while the D3100’s advanced imaging system assures outstanding quality. And for action sequences, new Subject-tracking AF keeps subjects properly focused. After the shoot, view movies on the large 3-inch LCD and perform simple editing tasks like trimming scenes before or after a designated point. HDMI compatibility lets you connect the D3100 to an HDTV with an optional HDMI cable, with playback managed by most TV’s remote controls.
Nikon’s Guide Mode
An enchanting portrait against a softly defocused background, or a radiant couple surrounded by sparkling lights. Taking photos like these is easy with the D3100’s Guide Mode—in-camera guidance that shows you step-by-step how to change camera settings. Just select a Guide Mode setting that matches the scene then let Guide Mode assist. Not only will you obtain the desired results, you’ll understand how you achieved them. Guide Mode even displays sample photos so you’ll know what to expect from each setting.
Fast, precise 11-point autofocus system
The D3100's precision high-speed autofocus responds immediately to changes in scene or composition, maintaining tack-sharp focus to capture fleeting expressions and fast-moving sports.
Great pictures in dimly lit settings
A maximum ISO of 3200 (expandable to ISO 12,800 equivalent) lets you shoot at fast shutter speeds, reducing camera-shake blur in dimly lit scenes. Twilight and indoor shots come alive with a refreshingly natural look without the need for a tripod or flash.
