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.
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.
Compact and lightweight design. At only approx. 1 lb. 1.8 oz., the compact and lightweight D3100 goes where you go. And it’s so easy to use thanks to the ergonomic grip that simplifies shooting, both in horizontal and vertical positions.
New dedicated controls for frequently used functions like Live View, D-Movie and shutter release modes further enhance ease of use.
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.
