Pros: Small, lightweight, good compatible optics, long lasting battery, great machine body.

Cons: It has a single bezel, few controls, viewfinder with poor coverage, complicated focus, slow, a lot of noise from 800 ISO.

Opinion: Back then, it was my first Nikon, my father's last gift before he left me for cancer in 2017, now I'm 33 years old. This year I bought a NikonD7500 and despite not being the TOP of the range, it has really better qualities. However, the D3100 I will always carry in my heart. The cameras used previously were all compact from Sony, and I've never had the same wonderful result that this camera can give in daylight or with the help of an external flash mount of all kinds, setting things up manually. For what I used it, initially in an amateur way photographing landscapes, flowers and cats, I found it satisfying despite the age of the camera body. I find that the information of the display, despite not being touchscreen is enough to make good shots. It's very good to learn. I found a lot of difficulty on noise, already with 1600 iso. At the time I didn't have adobe Lightroom to fix and I really struggled to photograph the evening with still light. In general, I prefer it a lot compared to a latest generation Iphone, they have too many automatisms, with her it was a beautiful experience that I will continue to carry in my heart even if I will still change cameras over the years. Thanks Nikon D3100. You also allowed me to immortalize Ambramarie Facchetti before Covid19 broke out.

Pros: Simplicity and lightness

Cons: No POS for old nikon lenses

Opinion: I state that I own several Nikon cameras being a collector and a friend of mine gave me his D3100 because he no longer used it instead of throwing it away. Not to do the phenomenon that I am absolutely not but to say that I did not expect anything from this body. You never throw away an object and being practically new I put it in the middle of my racing cars. With my head still attached to my D2 D3 D4 and D5 I put on the 85 f 1.8 in manual focus and went for a ride. The machine is lightweight and cute to use with a large display that informs you about everything. To start taking pictures is a nice start and you have fun. The sensor is Aps C and still releases good memories as long as you do not push too much up with the ISO. What I want to tell you is to frame it in the correct panorama and you will be happy to have it. I am one who comes from film and I always shoot at 100 or 200 ISO, of the two I look if a camera has 50 ISO instead of 1600 but this is my way of taking photos preferring landscapes and subjects mostly static. I recommend a small portable tripod that also serves to support the car and have fun in the evening at the beach or in the city ............ You will have fun in lightness. The only mechanical drawback is the lack of power take-out for AF. Happy 3100 to everyone and young guys I say to use a 3100 and not the I Phone ..... Other emotion and observation

Pros: Small and lightweight, good image quality at low ISO, used price.

Cons: It has only one bezel, few controls, poorly performing screen, viewfinder with poor coverage, focus often failing, slow, a lot of digital noise already from 800 ISO.

Opinion: It was my first SLR and I remember it very fondly. I was very young and, consequently, penniless and receiving it as a gift was a dream for me. I had a lot of fun with her and learned a lot of things. Of the cons listed by me most are understandable being a relatively cheap and dated entry level, but two were very annoying for me: - the screen resolution was low and did not allow me to understand if in the photos taken there was micro-move or an inaccurate focus (if you add that the machine did not have a very performing autofocus ...) - to change almost all the shooting settings you had to enter the menu as there are few keys and only one dial ... I think this is also a problem of the other entry level d3*** and d5***. I wonder how you can learn to photograph without having the opportunity to modify the parameters appropriately.

Pros: Small and versatile, performing with good optics, generous, sincere battery, excellent as an entry level body.

Cons: High ISO noise, unresolute monitor, not always reliable autofocus, lack of shooting information with retro optics.

Opinion: It was my first reflex and with her I did a lot of school and really many shots. He accompanied me in all photographic genres, even under the stars and the Milky Way. And he did it with dignity. By pairing it with decent lenses, you get considerable satisfaction, especially with fixed optics. The high-ISO sensor produces enough noise, while autofocus is deficient in certain situations, but you can forgive it. Using it with older lenses, unfortunately you do not have all the shooting information available, which is present in the most advanced models. It is small, light, and allows itself to be carried very well, moreover the battery lasts very long ensuring a high number of shots. I recommend it to all those who approach this world for the first time, moreover now in second-hand they are at very modest prices!

Pros: Size, versatility, file, price

Cons: Iso seal, focus points, very slow

Opinion: The D3100 is the entry level that taught me the basics of digital photography. Recommended for those who want to enter this world by not spending an exaggeration. Clearly, being an entry level the things it can do are limited: for example, with this reflex you make good nocturnal keeping iso not too high (the maximum it can hold is 800 iso). Once I learned the basics and realized that the D3100 could no longer meet my standards, I switched to the D7500: another story and other functions, but for what the D3100 meant to me, I didn't sell it and keep it as a forklift in my bag.
