I'm wondering what the best bang-for-the-buck would be for a camera dedicated to indoor shots of small groups of people. Lighting would have to be whatever is there (no extra lighting gear) and there may not be a lot of room so a wide prime or zoom would be necessary. I'm thinking a used, entry level DX like a Nikon 3000 or 3100 with the kit lens. I see a refurb D3100 with 18-55 for $320. Any other ideas?

Hi. I have a Nikon D3100. I've had it for 4 years now, and now that I've grown as photographer, I'd like to upgrade my gear. Thinking of the d600 or d7100 (leaning heavily towards d7100 bc of budget constraints). Do you think I'd see a noticeable difference in image quality between the D3100 and D7100? If so, please elaborate in what way. Thanks so much for the help! --Gear: Nikon D3100. 18-55mm Nikkor lens. 55-200mm Nikkor lens. Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens.

Hi I currently have a Nikon D3100 and have very limited knowledge of DSLR's, whilst I really like my D3100 I am looking at the D5200 and wonder if anyone can give me any feedback on this with regards to the main differences between both models and opinions on the D5200 thanks

I have Nikon D3100 for past 2 years. Suddenly its not switching on, and the serviced people are telling like we need to change all the boards inside the part. And the cost estimation would be 22k. Is it advisable to change. Am very much worried that i lost my first slr camera. Please suggest what could be the best way to go ahead.

I've been using a Nikon D3100 for a while now and I quite enjoy it and honestly have no qualms with it. I no longer have access to it and would like to buy something for myself. I want to be cost-effective so I want something, DSLR, mirrorless, old, used, whatever, that is as cheap as possible. I want something with the same capabilities as the D3100, good range of f-stop, shutter speed, maybe less noise at higher ISO, good enough video (this is not a priority), optical viewfinder please,...

Hi. I'm a film/tv student, using my Nikon D3100 for still photography, and I'd like to upgrade the overall look/quality of my photos. Budget: $1000 I'm thinking of going for the D600 or D7100. Needs: Still photography (probably want to get into wedding photography at some point) and some basic HD video recording. Concerns: If I got the d600, I would not be able to spend much on a lens (>$200) for at least 6 months. I'm concerned that the d7100 won't be as noticeable an upgrade as I'm looking...

I'm looking for a quality battery grip for my D3100. I take a lot of portrait shots so the better balancing would be nice. Could anyone share their experience? I was inspired by the recent related thread referencing a grip for the D7100. Thanks!

I'm a beginner DSLR user with a Nikon D3100. I take a lot of pictures of my kids but they move a LOT and most of my photos were ending up blurry in Auto mode. I like the way they look in auto mode otherwise. The natural light always looks good. I rarely use the flash. It was recommended to me that I use 1/200 shutter speed to reduce the motion blur, so I adjusted the aperture to 4.8, which gives close to the right amount of light that I want but my photos now look a little... sepia-ish? And...

Hi! I got a not-so-much used D3100 from a relative of mine, but when I try to make a photo, I receive the infamous "Error! Press shutter release button again" message. - I can't make photos. - I can't switch camera to the live view mode (the same error). - Automatic focusing works. - But! I can use the mirror lockup option in the menu and the camera correctly raises the mirror and the sensor is shown. - I can make photos when there is no lens attached! They are even written to the SD card....
