    Nikon D3100 VS. D300 VS. D700 For the cost of this camera, I don’t think you can get anything better. The low light performance is off the charts. As a wedding photographer I regularly shoot with Nikon’s high end professional equipment and I was amazed how close this camera is to a pro camera. Now let me get specific. In order to compare I took a look at 100% files out of each camera I own.Which camera excels Nikon D3100($Cheap) VS. D300($1600) VS. D700 ($2,700):* Lens = The D3100 is the only camera that comes with a lens at it’s normal price* ISO Performance = Tie between D3100 and D700! (It could be Nikon’s new processing but the JPEG looks fantastic I was shooting D3100 on 6400iso with very little noise at all)* Low Light Focusing = D700* Focus Speed = D700* External Buttons & Controls for Pros = D700* Menu Navigation = D3100* Ease of Use = D3100* Megapixel = D3100 (14.2)* Sensor size = D700 (Much more important than megapixels but I won’t get…

    Takes excellent pictures and gets out of the way while doing it This Nikon D3100 is a phenomenal deal for non professionals, the rest of us people that want to take family and travel shots. I’ve owned DSLRs since 2004, starting with a Nikon D70 and then moving to D40, D200 and and . Those are all excellent cameras, but this Nikon D3100 is better than all of those in one crucial area, the area that matters: it takes excellent pictures without having to fiddle with the settings between shots. Yes, the other cameras are better in other respects: They have more buttons to change settings without delving into menus, they are bigger (is that a plus?), heavier (another plus?), and have better specs (1/500 flash sync speed for D70 and D40), but in the end I would have to…

    All good things come in small packages! How true for Nikon D3100! Hurray! The long wait is over! Nikon had us wait for such a long time for its newer models (D3100 and D7000) and it was just when we started thinking if Nikon will ever have an answer, anytime soon, to Canon’s T2i, 7D and 60D) they released these two wonderful cameras – D3100 and D7000. Let’s focus on D3100, shall we?So I finally had a chance to get hold of this D-SLR at Best Buy today. I am not a pro by any means but I have used many different D-SLRs including Canon (40D, T2i, XSi) and Nikon (D90, D5000). When I picked-up the camera for the first time, my initial reaction was, “whoa – this is so small and light weight”! It wasn’t that I wasn’t aware of the specs – I knew them beforehand but I was still blown away by how small and light it felt when I held it in my hands. Then, I thought, the grip would not be very comfortable but I was wrong as holding and operating the camera is just fine – thanks to Nikon’s well-thought-out design and grip. For the size and feel, it’s…
