Cons: Haven't found any.
Other Comments: Ordered the camera & 5 days later was using it. Beach Camera fulfills orders promptly; never had a problem with them. Highly recommend them.

Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: This was a Christmas present to ourselves. We wanted a nice camera that we could both use. My wife just wants to be able to grab it & shoot- this camera will do it. I want one I can adjust settings if needed & take the best possible picture My Way. This camera will do that & though I was looking at the Niklon D7000 we can't afford that at this time & this D3100 is Recommended highly by Ken Rockwell who Reviews cameras, lenses, flashes, etc. for full time. This price fit our budget & gives me a camera I can learn on & use until I can upgrade.

Pros: Lightweight, Easy to understand, Easy to use
Cons: Didn't come with sd card
Other Comments: Has a natural fit to the hand; you don't need to grope around for most feature changes. Camera body feels solid, but it's surprisingly light. The lenses are crisp, but heavy by comparison. Autofocus takes a bit to lock in.

Pros: Easy to use
Cons:
Other Comments: Love it. I started off with a Pentex K1000 and loved it for its ease of use. I have used it for 35+ yrs. I was looking for a good quality DSLR that would be as easy to use as my trusty old Pentex. I looked at several different cameras and settled on this Nikon D3100 based on the reviews of both pros and ams on how easy it was to learn to use. My wife is getting an interest in photography and I wanted something that would be easy for her to use. Thanks Nikon

4 out of 5 stars   A good deal, just not that good
By Junior Crime Scene Tech (Northern Virginia) April 07, 2013
Review submitted for Nikon D3100 Digital SLR Kit w/ 18-55mm and 55-200mm VR Lenses Ultimate Nikon SLR Pack (E44NKD3100KT2)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: lens cover, Camera, Sd card, price, Extra Lense
Cons: Tripod Is A Joke, no sd card reader, Cheap Accessories, Bag Is Worthless, No Sales Receipt
Other Comments: Couldn't wait to get my camera to replace one that was stolen. I decided to go with the camera kit because the pic had some items that I had planned on buying anyway. Somewhat disappointed but then I didn't expect much with the price given. First of all that tripod is worthless. I wouldn't trust it with my cheap point and shoot let alone a new DSL camera. Its weak, cheap, with no support. One of the legs already had a dent in it and one of the retaining screws was rusted and stripped out. The camera bag was a waist of time to even include in the package. Also, there may be an SD card reader in the site pic but there was no SD card reader to be found in the kit. As for missing pieces, I also could not find the shipping receipt inside the package anywhere. Camera works great, even better than the one it replaced. The lens cover is awesome, SD card a plus. That would be a decent enough package deal for the price; the rest is just a waist of time and space. I got my tripod, tripod bag, camera case and SD card reader after checking out what was sent. You think your getting a good deal with the extras that come with the double lens kit but save the frustration and just get the double lens kit. You can get better accessories separately.

Pros: Professional Yet Simple
Cons: A little hard to learn
Other Comments: A very nice professional camera that is easy to operate. Bought it for my daughter's wedding. It takes great photos. It also has a video capability which is a plus. Came with both an 18-50 and and a 55-200 lens set. It is easy to operate but has a lot of features that are a little difficult to learn for the amateur photographer.

Pros: Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, High ISO Performance, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Stabilization
Cons:
Other Comments: I've been using a Canon PowerShot S2is for years and became frustrated with the indoor flash or low light picture quality. My son's recommended the Nikon and I've been pleasantly surprised with the picture quality. I used it at a friends wedding and the pictures were great. I'm older and new to a DSLR. There's a lot to learn (and remember) with this new camera but I'm getting there with my son's help. Also the BuyDig's price and delivery was excellent.

Review submitted for Nikon D3100 14.2MP / 1080P Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens (Refurbished) (NKD31001855)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Easy To Use, Good Image Stabilization, Fast Shutter Speed
Cons:
Other Comments: I was using a great point and shoot camera for years and wanted to upgrade to a SLR one. After reviewing many different ones, I decided to go with this one and am very glad I did. I found this camera pretty easy to use right out of the box on the auto setting, and have slowly been going through all the different manual settings and so far its been great. My 17 year old son also likes photography, and he's been using this camera more than I have! He's gotten some really nice shots up close of the buds in bloom in the back yard. Very pleased with this purchase. I am looking forward to purchasing other lenses and accessories for this camera.

Review submitted for Nikon D3100 14.2MP / 1080P Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens (Refurbished) (NKD31001855)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Info button helps newbies, Excellent Pics
Cons: Video doesn't focus well
Other Comments: This is the ideal SLR for a beginner!!! It takes photos's as good as any camera out there. If you are not sure of a setting you can use the help button and the camera display's info on the various settings. It also has a guide mode that will tell how to set the camera depending on your shot. The Video is a little bit of a downer for me, it seems to go in and out of focus and you can hear the lense adjusting in the video. I didn't buy this soley for the video anyway so it's not too big of a deal. I just expected better. However when it does come in focus the video looks really good. I woul recommend this to anybody starting out in photography.

Pros: Shoots JPG and RAW, Too Many to List, Nice size, I love Nikon, Good resolution
Cons: Wish it was 20 megapixel
Other Comments: I anguished over this camera vs the Canon t2i but decided on this camera, because it's a Nikon and I always shot Nikon film cameras. The pictures with the kit lens are fantastic. There is little noise at high ISO ranges. Tons of lenses to coose from. Mow I want a D7000, but it boils down to budget.

Pros: Light and easy to use
Cons: More buttons than I know
Other Comments: I'm an amateur photographer and wanted to purchase a camera that I could use to learn on. I figured while I'm still learning it would be nice to have an auto-focus lens as a backup. This camera was slightly harder to learn how to operate until I figured out that I had some of the switches in the wrong position (auto-focus lens was switched to manual and I didn't know to look for the green light in the viewfinder until I read the manual a second time.)I felt like I got the hang of it when I took some close-ups of my pets and they looked beautiful!
