Great Beginner Camera
Was using a film camera before i got my first DSLR D3100. Its absolutely great. Easy to point and shoot if you don't know how to use all the buttons. The menu is a bit confusing but you get the hang of it eventually. I am brand new to DSLR so i have a lot to learn. Very portable and light weight. Only downside that it doesn't have a wireless remote. Other then that the photo come out beautifully. I highly recommend it.

Best camera ever.
My first DSLR. It is durable – even if I dropped it, it still works without a problem. Video is amazing, especially the full 1080p resolution. Photos come out great. Lens compatibility isn't an issue – I have a lens from 1998 that fits and still works with this camera (you have to shoot in manual mode, though). For first-time photographers like me, this is really easy to use. A versatile camera for everyday photography, I recommend this to every first-time DSLR buyer.

BEST ENTRY/ INTERMEDIATE LEVEL CAMERA ON THE MARKETim
I'm new to the DSLR world well was when I first got this camera for an amazing price. I'd seen reviews and such so I knew how to work it out of the box but I decided to give the manual a look and it wasn't the novel I Thought it would be. It was very simple. Image quality is amazing, can go days without charging while using it for hours each day. The only and not that bad things that wish were here were the ability to use IR remotes to control this camera and for it to be a little quiter. Nothing to bad at all. Still in love with this camera years after it release!

Love this camera!
A week or so ago, I got the d3100 from Best Buy, but the flex circuit broke and I can't send it to Nikon headquarters, so I exchanged it today. It is my first DSLR and a great beginner DSLR to have, for I spend most of my free time with my cameras (both are Nikon). I'm really sad that they are discontinuing this product. I totally recommend this to a lot of people!

Perfect Entry Level DSLR
I bought this camera recently to use for photo shoots, web shows, and music videos. This is the first DSLR that I have purchased but I have used a Lumix GH2 before. I was amazed to see how well this camera works. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that the more expensive DSLR cameras have, but its over all functionality is wonderful. It works great in low light and the photos I have taken with it are incredible. The video quality is also great. The only thing that I could say that I don't like is that video is only in 10 min sections, but this is not a "video camera". The auto-focus is snappy, the settings are easy to learn and use, and over all it is a great camera. If you are looking for an entry level DSLR this is the perfect camera for you. Especially for the price.
