"The D3100 is Nikon's entry-level digital SLR, priced from just $699 with an 18 - 55 mm lens. The D3100 is a very user-friendly camera, with help screens and a unique "guide mode" that literally spells out what you need to do in order to get the shot you want. It also has plenty of features to excite camera enthusiasts, including a 14.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor, 11-point AF system, a 3-inch LCD with live view, plenty of manual controls, and a Full HD movie mode."
Nikon's D3100 is actually a fairly large upgrade for this line. It features a new 14.2 megapixel CMOS sensor which should give better image quality overall, and adds HD video as well. The high ISO images are turning out pretty well, and to me even ISO 6400 can be used in a pinch (with some post processing). It looks like a great camera for those wanting to get a budget DSLR, the question now is, is the camera still as cheap as some of the D3000 deals I've been seeing in North America previously?
