Elevate Your Photography to Beautiful New Heights

Easily capture the beauty of life’s fleeting moments with Nikon’s compact and lightweight D3100—a feature-rich digital SLR camera that surprises you with simplicity, and positively delights with superb results. The D3100 comes equipped with Nikon’s easy-to-use Guide Mode to help you take better photos and capture breathtaking Full 1080p HD movies. Best of all, the D3100 is ready to go, out-of-the-box with an included AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens. Whether shooting casual snapshots, a delicately composed still life or Full HD movies, you’ll love the ease with which D3100 does it all.

Exceptional image detail

Nikon equipped the 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 noise-free background defocus.

Bring moments to life

Discover the difference a digital SLR makes when shooting movies. A wide selection of NIKKOR lenses gives you freedom to explore different angles and obtain lovely defocused backgrounds while the D3100’s advanced imaging system assures outstanding quality. And for action sequences, new Subject-tracking AF keeps subjects properly focused. After the shoot, view movies on the large 3-inch LCD and perform simple editing tasks like trimming scenes before or after a designated point. HDMI compatibility lets you connect the D3100 to an HDTV with an optional HDMI cable, with playback managed by most TV’s remote controls.

Nikon’s Guide Mode

An enchanting portrait against a softly defocused background, or a radiant couple surrounded by sparkling lights. Taking photos like these is easy with the D3100’s Guide Mode—in-camera guidance that shows you step-by-step how to change camera settings. Just select a Guide Mode setting that matches the scene then let Guide Mode assist. Not only will you obtain the desired results, you’ll understand how you achieved them. Guide Mode even displays sample photos so you’ll know what to expect from each setting.

Fast, precise 11-point autofocus system

The D3100's precision high-speed autofocus responds immediately to changes in scene or composition, maintaining tack-sharp focus to capture fleeting expressions and fast-moving sports.

Great pictures in dimly lit settings

A maximum ISO of 3200 (expandable to ISO 12,800 equivalent) 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.

Ready out-of-the-box

You’ll be ready to start shooting exceptional pictures as soon as you get the D3100 home because it comes bundled with an AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens ready for action! Achieve clear images easily with legendary NIKKOR optical quality and fast, accurate autofocus for vivid color, striking contrast and crisp detail. Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization ensures the sharpest hand-held pictures and movies, and it’s close-up capabilities capture fantastic detail shots at a 0.9 ft. focus distance.

Take-anywhere portability

At only approx. 1 lb. 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.

Catch the decisive moment

D3100 can shoot approximately 3 frames per second—great for capturing dynamic motion and elusive facial expressions that are a challenge for any photographer. Simply rotate the release-mode selector and shoot away. Split-second shutter response eliminates the frustration of shutter delay, capturing moments that other cameras miss.

3-inch LCD with one-touch Live View

Live View gives you an intuitive, familiar way to photograph playful pets or children on the move. Just flip a switch and you’re ready to go. Live View makes D3100 as easy to use as a compact camera.

Scene Auto Selector

The D3100 automatically selects the Scene Mode that matches the shooting situation and subject. During Live View shooting in Auto Mode, Scene Auto Selector automatically activates Portrait, Landscape, Close-up or Night portrait modes depending on the scene.
