Nikon has developed a habit of making very attractive entry-level DSLRs, which are rarely the best specified but cleverly designed so that they’re easy and enjoyable to shoot with. And Looking professional.

2. Nikon D3100 DSLR (AF-S 18-55mm VR Kit Lens)

Rating

Nikon has developed a habit of making very attractive entry-level DSLRs, which are rarely the best specified but cleverly designed so that they’re easy and enjoyable to shoot with. The D3000 fitted this pattern perfectly, a gentle refresh of the D60 (which was itself a slightly updated D40X), it added ease-of-use features to make it a pleasant little camera to use, despite a specification that was beginning to look rather out-of-step with the rest of the market.

The D3100 is built around a 14.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, bringing not only live view but also Full HD video capture to Nikon’s entry-level model for the first time. In fact, this made it the first Nikon DSLR to offer 1920×1080 movie recording. It can only record clips up to about ten minutes long (due to a 4Gb maximum file size limitation shared by all DSLRs), but this still counts as an impressive feature addition at this level.

The body gets a slight refresh from a basic design that essentially dates back four years to the D40, gaining an extra button to the left of the screen, a drive mode switch at the base of the mode dial, a sprung lever to engage live view and a direct record movie button. Revisions have also been made to the feature-teaching, hand-holding ‘Guide Mode’, and an additional autofocus mode that’s designed to allow better focusing in live view and autofocus during video shooting.

Product Features:

  • SLR
  • 14.2 MP Camera
  • 23.1 x 15.4 mm, CMOS Sensor
  • 3 inches, 230k dots, LCD display
  • 1/4000 sec Max Shutter Speed
  • Approx. 1.5x lens focal length
  • HDMI
  • ViewFinder, External Flash

So, while the D3100 offers an improved feature set when compared to a camera we really liked, it remains to be seen whether these additions will be enough to make it stand out as well as its predecessor did.
