Description: The D3100 is equipped with a new Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor and a new image-processing engine, EXPEED 2, both developed by Nikon. The CMOS image sensor offers an effective pixel count of 14.2-million pixels (D3000: CCD image sensor with 10.2-million effective pixels) and enables capture of high-definition images exhibiting superior image quality with extremely detailed rendering and rich tones. The camera also makes the most of its standard sensitivity settings up to ISO 3200 (D3000: ISO 100-1600) and additional increases up to HI 2 (ISO 12800 equivalent), with shooting under dim lighting, such as in the evening or indoors, as well as with sports scenes of rapidly moving subjects. EXPEED 2 is Nikon's new image-processing engine, developed by refining the concepts, know-how and technologies regarding digital images that Nikon has spent years cultivating. It maximizes the performance of the CMOS image sensor to suppress noise in still images and movies and produces images that faithfully reproduce vivid colors.

A Powerful, Small and Light Weight Camera
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...

D3100 is missing some features I loved about the D5000....
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.

Nice camera!
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!
