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.

Pros: If you need a cheap Nikon in 2020 it takes you well today. Display not resolute but great.

Cons: Low image quality, low ISO hold. It can't be a first body. Has the Live View

Opinion: Opinion must be considered in context. The D3100 is small, light but doesn't have an engine for AF lenses without an engine. If you find it today, like me, for less than 100 euros, it can be an excellent mule as a second or third body. I talked about how you can also take advantage of full frame lenses on dx machines in my channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbIdp3DUDqB-C1Aqn9KMAXQ/ I took it just to be able to use Nikon optics for FullFrame as well. The quality of the sensor and image is not great but its 14Mpix are very manageable as dimensions even in RAW. It is small and handy, comfortable to carry around without worrying about scratching or damaging it. It's not a PRO and not even a SemiPRO.... but today it is at ridiculous prices and has a 3" display, the LiveView, the battery lasts a lot, buying a reliable SLR at a ridiculous price can be convenient!

Pros: Excellent as entry level, good image quality (considering the lens to which it is addressed), robustness and solidity.

Cons: Monitor, bad ISO seal

Opinion: I've had this car for almost 10 years now and she's my closest friend. Despite the years it does a great job still (especially combined with the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8) and I can bring home some excellent results. Obviously it can not compete with the most modern machines, but at least it is of an excellent robustness: accidentally falling 2 years ago from about a meter and a half and still works perfectly. Against, however, the poor sealing of the iso (although still remains an entry level) and a focus that, especially with little light, leaves a lot to be desired. That said, when used in manual by great results and allows you to know the world of manual photography. Perfect as first reflex machine.

Pros: Perfect as entry level. Even with kit lens gives great satisfaction.

Cons: Outrageous Monitor resolution

Opinion: As for many it was my first SLR and, sentimentality aside, I feel strongly recommend it to anyone who approaches photography. Simple, intuitive and even its consistency and lightness (with attached plasticosity) are in my opinion a point in favor: It takes easily around a whole day and you have this feeling of having in your hands a toy... Which in any way gives really beautiful shots that with a bit of work in post production can become real pearls (just see some authors of the site to believe)! What to add? For my personal experience, in choosing the kit lens to match, I suggest the 18-55 F 3.5/5.6 Objective Kit In my opinion much more performant than the 18-105 3.5/5.6, another very common lens kit that I use today on d7100. At the same brightness the first one returns the colors much softer and pastellated that I did not found in 18-105. Absolute sore Note: the Monitor... Very low resolution and serves practically only to make sure that the photo was taken... To really see the picture go from the computer!
