Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewVery Good

  • THE GOOD

    Excellent photo quality; well-laid-out controls; interesting, user-friendly Guide mode; full manual controls in video capture.

  • THE BAD

    Smallish viewfinder; slower than the competition; no bracketing.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    A very good entry-level dSLR, the Nikon D3100 delivers excellent photo quality in a body that's streamlined for experienced photographers, but relatively unintimidating for the less advanced. Its only weakness is performance; though solid, it nevertheless lags behind the competition.
