  • This is the first time I have ever bought a used camera \"sight-unseen\", it arrived on time and was as advertised, and I am not disappointed with it. Despite my reservations about battery life, this camera is good for about 5 hours of continuous random shooting with the OEM battery, and having come with a 32GB card already in it, I can get about 300 pictures before I have to recharge the battery (1.03A/hr) and still have plenty of room left over before I use up the memory. I have since bought two additional batteries and the charge time from dead to full charge is short enough where I can use another battery and the old one is recharged before the new one goes flat. As these are Lithium Ion batteries, I can also recharge a partially drained battery after a shoot and not have to worry about battery memory problems.Having the ability to work fully manual or automatic is nice as well, although frequent use of autofocus and shooting in raw .jpeg files significantly reduces the battery life and the number of shots per charge - but raw jpegs can give exceptional results. This is a trade-off that did not pertain to film cameras. Interchangeable lenses is also a big plus as I do a lot of macro-photography and, contrary to normal lenses - which have a curved depth of field - macro lenses have a depth of field that is more like two flat planes making it a lot easier to deal with depth of field issues when photographing small objects.In the past, I have owned a Hasselblad 500, Rolleiflex, Pentax Spotmatic, Canon F-1, AE-1, Olympus OM-1, OM-2 - all with multiple lenses - and a D-500 digital - and all were excellent performers. With the exception of the Olympus D-500 all were film type cameras and after every photo shoot, I would have to spend hours in the darkroom developing slides, mounting them and then have to edit them over a lightbox with a magnifier and cotton gloves and canned air. With this camera, which is fully compatible with Linux Ubuntu and GIMP Image Editor, all I had to do was buy a USB cable (Which I feel should be supplied - sheesh!), or remove the memory card and insert it into my laptop, download and edit, delete and save my images as desired. I can also delete images, from the computer, using the file management utilities inherent in Linux.Yes I would recommend this camera and vendor to others. I am getting high enough quality images for both printing and internet and other digital formats and rarely go over 8\"X10\" on prints, which have the same quality as prints from 35mm inter-negatives from Kodachrome 25 or prints from normal 35mm negatives. While the D3200 has about 4 more MB of pixels, the format of this is large enough where I generally reduce the image size to the standard formats and I can go as high as 500pixels per inch in jpeg formats so the image quality is not a factor. My shooting method has always been to shoot a larger background than I need to allow me more freedom in cropping the final photo as I can increase the pixels per inch in the process and not lose any image quality. All-in-all a 5-star performer. To quote Bogie...\"This may be the start of a beautiful friendship.\"...Two cons I should mention. The camera came to me with a lot of photos in the memory. I would think that the prior owner or the seller should have formatted the card prior to selling the camera. It only takes seconds to reformat the card. Just a heads up for anyone contemplating selling their camera and the vendor I bought this from. I really do not need, or want, someone elses work on my camera. I am also a bit miffed that this requires a plug-in remote shutter release that plugs into a port instead of the old style shutter cables. Meh... Progress marches on. Maybe the Smithsonian would be interested in my old shutter cables. But this is more of a matter of personal preference anyway - and is only a handicap when shooting wildlife where I set upon a tripod and work from a blind. The manual shutter releases do not require a battery and the cordless do - and are subject to RFI.
  • I did a ton of research on the right camera in the price range before I bought this on tech sites and consumer reports. This camera comes very highly recommended so my expectations were set very high. This camera far exceeds my expectations!!! I upgraded from a 10 year old Pentax film SLR and it was a very easy adjustment. The features of this camera are very intuitive to use. I took this camera to Ireland on vacation a week or so after I got it, and was able to adjust all the manual settings I had gotten used to on my old camera without too much effort. I also find the automatic settings (auto, shutter, aperture, no-flash) to take very well balanced photos.I was concerned that I would regret not getting the VR lenses for image stability and to reduce blurring, however, I haven\'t had issues with this at all. I have gotten used to stabilizing though with my old camera, so maybe this is why I haven\'t noticed it.My only criticism of this package would be that there is no overlap in the lens\' zoom. While traveling I found I had to switch lenses a lot because I would need to zoom in a little bit more than the 18-55mm, so would switch the lens out to 55-200mm, then 10 minutes later couldn\'t zoom out as far as I needed and would have to switch back to the 18-55mm. I think I just got used to having lenses that overlapped by about 30mm with the old camera, so got a little spoiled.
  • I bought this camera to take better pictures of my son on the soccer field. For that, I would give 10 stars. The bigger lens (55-200 mm) is great for sitting in the stands or at the end of the field and capturing individuals on the field while still capturing bigger field shots as well.The camera itself is fantastic. There are so many things I can do with it.I took a camera class so that I could use it like it\'s really made for - on the modes where it\'s not just a giant, expensive point and shoot camera. Turns out, the smaller lens (18-55mm) is pretty junky and I need to replace it (that\'s why I gave 4 stars). My teacher says this is pretty typical in these kinds of sets. But it just isn\'t fast enough inside. Outside, pictures are great. Inside, even with proper settings, it just doesn\'t work - weird coloring, blurry, etc. If it\'s on the automatic setting, it does ok inside. Outside: amazingly gorgeous photos.The battery lasts a good long time. I can easily get through a soccer game (so over an hour and I take a ton of pictures). It recharges quickly too.Overall great camera. I gave 4 stars because I have to buy a better lens for inside shots.
  • There are 2 lenses that fit the Nikon D3100. The newer lens that has the lock button is meant for a different body [Nikon D5600] . This newer lens is auto focus and doesn\'t allow me to focus at all. The older lens is the proper lens and is fully functional for both the Nikon D3100 and D5600
  • I purchased the d3100 from Amazon after a lot of research and discussion with friends that own various DSLRs. Despite opinions, there aren\'t that many differences between Canon and Nikon at this level of camera. I believe it comes down to the features that you want, the included accessories and the best deal. In the end, this package was the clear winner. I also was able to get a free 16gb card and a nice basic case and my first impressions of outdoor landscape shots and indoor action shots are excellent. My most basic advice is DO NOT purchase a camera based on megapixels alone. If you are looking for a great entry level DSLR, with a great package of accessories, look no further. For under $500, you can\'t beat it!
