The camera that amazes. Shoot with D3100 and enjoy the beauty. The Nikon D3100 SLR Camera With 18-55/55-200 DX Lenses employs Nikon's latest breakthrough technology to deliver superb results. A newly developed DX-format CMOS sensor with 14.2 effective megapixels works in tandem with new EXPEED 2 image processing engine to produce highly detailed images containing rich tonal gradations and faithful color. This combination also helps produce beautifully defocused backgrounds - a hallmark of quality digital SLR cameras. In addition, a maximum ISO of 3200 (expandable to ISO 12800 equivalent using the Hi 2 setting) allows you to shoot without worrying about camera-shake blur.
Nikon equipped D3100 with a newly developed CMOS sensor for outstanding subject detail and smooth color gradation. Whether shooting photos or full HD movies, the sensor is crucial to image quality. The high pixel count of D3100's sensor produces photos of striking clarity, revealing all the nuance of the original scene with minimum noise - ideal for intricately detailed textures and grain-free background defocus.
Welcome to a new level of excellence with EXPEED 2. We've leveraged our vast technological know-how to bring you Nikon's most advanced image processing engine yet. EXPEED 2 maximizes CMOS sensor performance for clear, lifelike images that exhibit vivid colors, reduced noise and smooth tonal gradations for outstanding photos and movies.
A maximum ISO of 3200 (standard range) lets you shoot at fast shutter speeds, reducing camera-shake blur in dimly lit scenes. Twilight and indoor shots come alive with a refreshingly natural look without the need for a tripod or flash. Moreover, fast shutter speeds make it easy to freeze action in dynamic situations such as children at play and sports events. For added versatility, D3100's Hi 1 and Hi 2 settings effectively boost ISO to the equivalent of 6400 and 12800, respectively.
At only approx. 455 g (1lb. 1.8 oz.), the compact and lightweight D3100 goes where you go. And it's so easy to use thanks to the ergonomic grip that simplifies shooting, both in horizontal and vertical positions. New dedicated controls for frequently used functions like Live View, D-Movie and shutter release modes further enhance ease of use.

Shawn R. from KENMORE, NY:
The camera is awesome. Just took it to Hawaii and got some amazing photos. I am however shocked that a $500 camera does not include a USB cable. The cable is a mere $5 cable and nikon couldn't even give you one? Other than that the camera is great.
