    What if their pics look like **** because they don't know how to do photography?

    Scientific American recently ran an article that explained that asking for such info online is essentially useless. People will tout a product just to bolster in their own mind the validity of their purchase decision.

    The D3100 is a very capable entry-level camera and well worth it's cost. Used properly, it can make stunning images. :thumbup:

    I have never used a D3100, but I am familiar with Nikon digital SLR cameras in general. In recent years I have had the D1X, D60, D90, D200, and currently have 4 - D300, and 3 - D3.

    I was planning on getting one, but the screen isn't that great. So I'm getting a D90 instead.

    great entry level camera. I personally photograph with a d90, recently upgraded from a d70s. But imo it all comes down to what kind of budget you're on and what you're looking to do in the long run with your camera.

    I bought a 3100 a week ago,cos the retailer was doing a bundle sale. I also have a d90, which is much more expensive. Naturally it is a better camera but I just couldn`t resist that bundle. on the 3100, the one thing that thru me was the moving of the focus light when spot metering.

    It's a fun and capable camera, I really enjoyed my time with it. Granted the display isn't as good but do you really go by that to judge your photo quality?

    Here is what I just experienced last week. I went to Futureshop and was looking at getting the T1i, and beside it was the D3100. The D3100 was $50 cheaper, so I was kind of interested. The camera guru for that store came over and I asked about the D3100. I had gone from a PAS many years ago to a Sony F717. Now I was ready for the step up to DSLR. Having told him of my level of understanding of photography, he gave me a side by side comparison of these two cameras. There was no sales pressure of any kind, and I walked away with the D3100, and not because it was cheaper. If you are going from PAS to DLSR, I would suggest the D3100, it has 'Guide' setting. It will ask you what you want to shoot and offer some settings that you can then change aswell. It is a great learning step in going to making your own settings.
