You have to fidget around with it a bit if ou arent a photographer, but the shots are worth it. Perfect camera to use with Photoshop.

-A customer quote

i've had my nikon d3100 for a few weeks now and absolutely love it. i normally dont write reviews but i love this thing so much i had to take the time to write one. first off, this is my first dslr camera, so i'm new to this type of photography. all i can say about my d3100 is wow, it's an amazing camera. i've noticed some reviewers here saying "buy a d90 or d7000 to start", but i completely disagree. if you're new to photography, this camera is all you'll need for a long time. i'm not much into video so i wont waste time here talking about the video options on the camera. i've taken a few and thought they were cool, the focus was good, the colors natural. having only a mono speaker the sound wasnt very good. but this is a camera, not a camcorder. and for photos this camera rocks. though i'm new to photography i'm as ocd as it gets, and i've spent many many days and now weeks reading about how to take great pictures and use the settings on the camera. and i've gone out and put that knowledge to use.
