Description

The Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera employs Nikon's breakthrough technology to deliver superb results. A newly developed DX-format CMOS sensor with 14.2 effective megapixels works in tandem with new EXPEED 2 image processing engine to produce highly detailed images containing rich tonal gradations and faithful color. The stunningly simple-to-use Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera is every family's answer to beautiful images. Whether the moment calls for a family portrait or a sharp shot of toddlers on the run, Guide Mode shows you how to capture stunning photos in no time at all. D-Movie lets you record full HD movie clips (1920 x 1080)with sound and capture the action in superb quality day or night. NIKKOR lenses can be used to obtain cinematic effects and you can make simple edits of your clips in-camera by deleting scenes or saving specific frames as still images In addition, a maximum ISO of 3200 (expandable to ISO 12800 equivalent using the Hi 2 setting) Enables faster shutter speeds, significantly reducing the risk of blurred images when you shoot fast-moving subjects or take pictures in low light. Incredibly lightweight for an SLR, the Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera makes it easy to capture your family looking wonderful wherever you go.

Live View with Scene Auto Selector makes it easy to compose images using the LCD monitor. Scene Auto Selector will select the best mode for the scene and subject you want to capture, and Fulltime servo AF (AF-F) mode keeps subjects in focus without the need to press the shutter release button.  The laarge 7.5 cm (3-inch), high-resolution LCD monitor on the NIKKOR lenses can be used to obtain cinematic effects and you can make simple edits of your clips in-camera by deleting scenes or saving specific frames as still images makes it easy to view essential camera information, and a pleasure to review and edit your photos and movies. The camera's razor-sharp 11-point Autofocus system offers fast and precise autofocus coverage across the frame. Four AF-area modes, including 3D-tracking AF, deliver sharp results, whether your subject is off-center, moving fast or completely unpredictable. Active D-Lighting automatically retains details in highlights and shadows for stunning images with natural contrast.

Picture Controls allow the look and mood of images to be set the before shooting. Choose from six settings: Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape. Extensive in-camera editing functions allow images and movies to be edited and enhanced in the camera. It also offers techniques such as Red-Eye Correction and Quick Retouch, as well as a range of Filter Effects. The Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Camera has Nikon's cleverDual Integrated dust reduction and Airflow system, which keeps dust away from the cameras image sensor. Lightweight body and superior ergonomics: a secure grip makes the camera comfortable to handle. Dedicated controls for frequently used functions like Live View, D-Movie and shutter release make it a joy to operate.
