I got this to replace my D60. I really wanted the D5100 but couldn't afford it. It has all of the basic features I wanted but is missing the additional resolution of the D5100, 14.2 Meg vs 16.2 meg, and the adjustable screen which is OK. The most important thing to me is that it uses all of my lenses and attachments I had for the D60 and uses them as well or better than the D60. It's a very nice camera.
It takes very nice HD video. It is limited to 10 minutes but when you think about it thats a pretty long video.
I'm glad I bought it!

I have wanted a DSLR for years. Every time I hear the word Nikon, I hear Paul Simon's 50 year old lyrics playing loud and clear in my head... "I've got a Nikon camera, I love to take photographs, Mama don't take my Kodachrome away."

I have a Panasonic Lumix LX5 that I bought on Amazon about a year ago that takes great pics and videos in auto or manual mode. Recently I have been experimenting with setting f stops and exposure and ISO settings in manual mode on the Lumix. I found I could get even better pics with manual settings than just using the auto settings. I started to desire a bigger sensor and more megapixels, to get even better pics, but wasn't comfortable spending many hundreds or thousands on a new DSLR and quality lenses.

On ebay I just bought a used Nikon D3100 body and four used Nikkor manual film lenses for less than 400 dollars total. To take pics or videos, I set the f stop on the lens, set the exposure on the D3100, keep the ISO on 100, turn the manual focus ring on the lens, and shoot amazing videos and still pics outdoors, or indoors in room light with no flash.

In the used market, many 30 to 40 year old Nikkor film lenses are selling for 10% of what they cost new. These are designated Non-AI or Pre-AI lenses, and they worked with Nikon film cameras. They are solid lenses and perform incredibly well with the D3100 in manual mode, for stills and video, thanks to the magnify (+) and (-) buttons on the left side of the D3100 lcd screen. When setting up a still shot or a video with the lcd screen in live view, using the magnify buttons digitally magnifies a portion of the screen up to 6.8 X, so I can focus perfectly by turning the focus ring on the lens until the magnified image on the lcd screen is sharp.

I already own a Nikon D5000 and ordered the D3100 because of it's lower light capability and better HD video capability. HOWEVER, I was disappointed that some of the features I loved about the D5000 have been omitted with the D3100. The D3100 has no "scene" mode - ideal settings for beach, snow, autumn leaves, pets, etc. This mode was replaced with a "guide" mode... not needed if you refer to the manual and if you are familiar with the camera.

Also, regarding my order, Cameta Camera stated that the camera, (body only), "includes ALL original camera accessories (the Nikon USA Warranty Card, Batteries, Cords, Instruction Manuals, etc.)" but NO cords were shipped with the camera. I will contact Cameta Camera about this.

Since I moved to US 10 years ago I acquired the discipline to register any new product at the site manufacturer to ensure authenticity, guarantee, service, etc.

This time was not an exception, and when trying to register my new D3100 at the nikonusa.com site I got a message that states that my purchase falls into what Nikon calls "Gray Market".

The issue with Gray market is the following: "Nikon Inc. USA cannot provide any technical support or warranty service on Gray Market items. Additionally Nikon Inc. USA cannot perform any fee-based repair work on Gray Market items. Please do not contact Nikon Inc. USA for help with any Gray Market products. Please contact the reseller or importer of your Gray Market items for warranty and service information as well as software updates and downloads"

I sent an email through Amazon asking for a clarification and the vendor 6Ave sent me this response: "Thank you for your email. When shopping on ebay the item may be either or if the listing details do not specify specifically USA. In this case we have not specified USA in the listing and will ship which ever model is available at the time your order is placed. It is not possible to make a specific request. Models that are not covered by the manufacture warranty will be covered by our store warranty for 90 days labor and 1 year parts."

1st they are assuming that I purchased the product through "ebay" regardless the fact that they are using the Amazon messaging service.

I agree with the reviewer who indicates the features lacking on this camera, including the warranty card from Calumet; however, those features are not ones I care about, want or use anyway (except the warranty card), especially the folly of video in a still camera. What I wanted was exactly what I got: the new Expeed 2 image processing engine found in the top end Nikon D3S and D7000 cameras, a new 14.2 MP CMOS (not a CCD), a very small size and a very light weight, without being flimsy or junky.

My complaint on professional gear and I have some is that it is too big and too heavy and it scares small children and others in the Third World. However, I want the high end picture making capabilities and muscle of the top professional gear in a light weight and small walk around camera and lens. That is what the D3100 is all about, plus, for the body only, it is still tremendous bang for the buck, especially when then used with a super standard zoom lens like the Nikon 16-85mm (forget the 18-200mm with its problems which I have also reviewed here).
