I bought this camera for my wife when it first hit shelves 5 years ago. We got the package deal that came with two great lenses, plus we bought a third. It's a fantastic DSLR camera with pro features, but simple enough for beginners to use out of the box. The only feature that's missing, and certainly not a deal breaker is the lack of an external microphone input. This is something photographers won't miss at all, yet a feature that filmakers can easily get around with some ingenuity. That leads into my new love of this little gem. As a budding filmaker, I was watching tutorials and reading articles on the subject and found out that most independent filmakers and some pros swear by DSLR cameras for their tool of choice for capture. I remembered my wife's Nikon 3100 and immediately repurposed it for my new endeavor. With a cage, shotgun mic, 7" live feed monitor and matte shade on the way--our Nikon 3100 will get even more use!

aliceinblack: Hello
i am a novice and use my D3100 in auto mode. do you know if i can set a slower shutter speed for effects and still stay in auto mode? i want to try special effects with motion blur. any help would be appreciated.
thank you

Hi Alice,
The short answer is no. One of the things you'll learn as you get acquainted with digital photography is that Auto Mode is a neat feature for quick shots that have predetermined settings calculated and set for you. I'm not sure if you're shooting video or stills, but the same principles apply to both.
Manual settings are where you can get down into the great features of DSLR cameras for what you are looking at doing.
You must learn these features to properly use your camera.
There are many great online resources that will walk you through it.

More information is needed in order to answer this. There are plenty of fantastic lenses available. It just depends on your needs. What zoom magnification you need, for example.
