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!

Pros: Easy to use, lightweight files even in raw, enough megapixels for detailed photos, used price.

Cons: ISO seal, bad gust, too small to be well ergonomic, buttons a little plasticosis.

Opinion: I bought this car about a year and a half ago to then switch recently to the d7000. I think it is among the best entry level for the quality price; having found it at 150 euros with objective and all the accessories, you can not compare to compact or bridge of that price range. Being able to make the comparison with the d7000 the flaws emerged easily: The ISO I have almost always kept to 100, for the too noise above ISO 800, the burst is practically useless, the 3 fps in fact it is better to let them be; It's easier to shoot in the "perfect" moment with a single shot. The machine obviously does not offer all the functions in the menu of the series 7 * * * * or 5 * * * *, however it has the necessary functions and sufficient for a machine of that type. I still firmly believe that there can be no better for that price.

Pros: Easy to use, lightweight but enjoyable files, battery life, ergonomics and weight.

Cons: I would say nothing to be a entrylevel. Under certain conditions already to 800iso unusable.

Opinion: First reflex. I've been here for four years and loved and hated her. Hated for having sometimes castrated me in not being able to make shots that I wanted. Loved because these limitations have led me to discover new ways to photograph and have forced me to learn to Postproduce to achieve excellent results where I would never have seen without. Manages to recover 2 stops of shadows and light in post. Ergonomics in relation to the optimum weight, brought with me always traveling and I have never tired, sure is plasticaccia but still feeling solid. I have never felt the need in 4 years of having to buy a secondary battery although sometimes I had been all day on the road waiting until the evening to charge it. Always covered the whole day with a sensible use. Blast really non existent yes and No 7 shots in 4 seconds (in excellent light conditions with autofocus.) To learn the basics and start to love (and sometimes hate) photography was an excellent body-cover machine. Nikon has always done a great job with regards to the 3000 evenings and still is doing it. Thanks to this series with a modest price has given great satisfaction to those who have just entered the world of photography.
